Elvis Costello - "Talk Of The Town" lyrics

it's such a drag to want something sometime
one thing leads to another I know
was a time I wanted you for mine, nobody knew
you arrived like a day, passed like a cloud
I made a wish, I said it out loud
everybody heard
it was the talk of the town
out loud in a crowd

I'd like to know, but why should I
who were you then and who are you now
it's not my place to know what you feel
come and lay me by notch, by the high-brow
and look at the sky, up in the sky
back in my room I wonder then I sit on the bed
like the talk of the town
how do you venge

maybe tomorrow, maybe someday
maybe tomorrow, maybe someday
you've changed, you've changed
your place in this world
your place in this world
you've changed, you've changed
oh, but it's hard to like by the rules

I never could and still never do
you called the shots and they followed
but zeros ans such never bothered yu
I watch you still from a distance and go
back to my room
you never know
I want you, I want you but now
it was the talk of the town
you've changed, you've changed

maybe tomorrow, maybe someday
maybe tomorrow, maybe someday
you've changed, you've changed
your place in this world
your place in this world
