Elvis Costello – Don't Be Careless Love lyrics

(Mccartney/Macmanus)

Burn the midnight lamp
Down until the dawn
I'll keep watch
Until I'm sure you're coming home
Shadows play
And flicker on the bedroom wall
They turn into a bad dream overnight
Something could be terribly wrong

Don't be careless love
Don't be careless love
Don't be, don't be careless

In my dream you're running nowhere
Every step you've taken turns to glue
Walking down a spiral staircase
Failing through, failing through
Don't be careless love
Be careless love

The lamp burns down and out
I'm getting pretty tired of this
I feel so bad
Something might be going amiss
I won't be there
So look out for yourself
You're getting in deep whatever you do
Don't let me go back to sleep

Don't be careless love
Don't be careless love
Don't be, don't be careless

Saw your face in the morning paper
Saw your body rolled up in a rug
Chopped up into two little pieces
By some thug

Don't be careless love
Be careless love

But in the morning light
When I wake up again
You're by my side
And that's the way it's always been
But in the dark
Your mind plays funny tricks on you
Your mind plays funny tricks on you
Your mind plays funny tricks on you

Don't be careless love
