Favourite hour

by Elvis Costello. Buy album CD: Brutal Youth

Figure hanging on a leather band
Cog consults the watch he cups in his hand
Bejewelled movement measures lost and vanished time
Pray for the boy who makes his bed in cold earth and quicklime

So stay the hands, arrest the time
'Till I am captured by your touch
Blessings I don't count
Small mercies and such
The flags may lower as we approach the favourite hour

Now there's a tragic waste of brutal youth
Strip and polish this unvarnished truth
The tricky door that gapes beneath the ragged noose
The crippled verdict begs again for the lamest excuse


Pull out my eyes so I may never spy
Waving branches as they're waving goodbye
Their vile perfume brings to my mouth a bitter taste
The murmuring brooks had best speak up, it's a terrible waste

  1. Pony st.
  2. Pony street
  3. Kinder murder
  4. 13 steps lead down
  5. This is hell
  6. Clown strike
  7. You tripped at every step
  8. Still too soon to know
  9. 20% amnesia
  10. Sulky girl
  11. London's brilliant parade
  12. My science fiction twin
  13. Rocking horse road
  14. Just about glad
  15. All the rage
  16. Favourite hour
