I thought i'd write to juliet


by Elvis Costello. Buy album CD: The Juliet Letters


I thought I'd write to Juliet, for she would understand
And when someone is already dead they can no longer let you down
Instead I find myself talking to you, as my oldest friend
Tell me how I can advise someone, that I don't even know,
To welcome death

For I received a letter that is worth reporting
And though it may raise a cynical smile
It leaves a sinking feeling
Like when a soldier in a story says to the sergeant...
"Have you seen my pride and joy?..."
You know the rest...and it's no joke...Forgive me please as I quote...
"This is a letter of thanks, as I'm so bored here in I can't
say where.
So I'm writing to people that I may never meet
And I was thinking if something you said..."

"I'm a female soldier, my name is Constance.
I enlisted in the military needing funds for college
I'm twenty-three years old and if I do get home alive
I imagine I may think again..."

"I'm sleeping with my eyes open for fear of attack
Your words are a comfort, they're the best thing that I have
Apart from family pictures and, of course, my gas mask
I don't know why I am writing to you"

cd Buy "The Juliet Letters" CD
  1. I almost has a weakness
  2. Deliver us
  3. For other eyes
  4. Swine
  5. Expert rites
  6. Dead letter
  7. I almost had a weakness
  8. Why?
  9. Who do you think you are?
  10. Taking my life in your hands
  11. This offer is unrepeatable
  12. Dear sweet filthy world
  13. The letter home
  14. Jacksons, monk and rowe
  15. This sad burlesque
  16. Romeo's seance
  17. I thought i'd write to juliet
  18. Last post
  19. The first to leave
  20. Damnation's cellar
  21. The birds will still be singing
