Rocking horse road

by Elvis Costello. Buy album CD: Brutal Youth

The chains from the bridle and the reins fell from my hands
The engines are idle and the ship sails on dry land
I stood there stupefied, I thought I recognized
Walking down Rocking Horse Road, getting lost

Shot through Vaseline, he picks up the paper from the lawn
And tucks "The Suburban Assassin" underneath his arm
He smiles weakly and turns away
I know you'll never come to harm
Walking down Rocking Horse Road, it's so peaceful

It's like a photograph
From the other side of the world
I said "I want you only"
And then I left you alone
Crying on Rocking Horse Road, or somewhere quite like it

The cemetery gardens, there are names not numbers on the gateposts
And the eyes in the curtain follow you like a smirking ghost
I know I must not look back
'Cause part of me is waiting still

There on Rocking Horse Road for you
In a little dream house made for two
Well you were the one that made your escape
In your stocking feet and your sticky tape

All the way down [repeat to fade]

  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
