Destiny.

The twitching impulses to speak your mind;
I’ll lend you my microscope and maybe you will find it.
Is it in that ugly place that’s just behind your face
where you keep my picture still despite the fact
that you had me replaced?

Say Goodbye…
Baby can’t you act your age?
You know why
I’m gonna give it to you straight –
Although I’ll never be
unhappy as you want me to be,
still, it’s all the rage.

I’ll probably play along
left to my own devices;
spare me the drone of your advice.
The sins of garter and gin,
confession may delay;
You know the measuring pole,
the merry boots of clay.
I’ve heard it all before –
you’ll say it anyway.
Alone with your tweezers and your handkerchief,
you murder time and truth, love, laughter and belief.
So don’t try to touch my heart, it’s darker than you think;
and don’t try to read my mind because it’s full of disappearing ink.

Say Goodbye…
Baby can’t you act your age?
You know why
I’m gonna give it to you straight –
Although I’ll never be
unhappy as you want me to be,
still, it’s all the rage.

    Oh, all is well, thank you. I was just tipping a nod to ol' Elvis.

    My urge to offer comfort goes hand in hand with my urge to say 'ooh, Elvis Costello'. Take either or both if you wish. Actually the first couple of lines of that always remind me of the Interweb for some reason…

    You're a dear, and thank you for this. Moreso, thanks for being attuned to excellent songs by excellent artists.
