Elvis Costello & The Imposters – Magnificent Hurt Lyrics

Magnificent Hurt Lyrics – Elvis Costello

After talking in tongues
I began to preach
“What falls from the branch is an apple or peach”
Hold on to me
There’s a Red Alert
It’s the way you make me feel
Magnificent Hurt

I took a little walk
I took another stimulant
I shed a single tear
For my predicament
Don’t act surprised or insolent
It’s the way you make me feel
Magnificent Hurt

When we first met, I knew you were beautiful
You fit like the seat of a blue mohair suit
But the pain that I felt
Let me know I’m alive
And I opened my heart
To the way you make me feel
Magnificent Hurt

I speak low and intimate
Like a cardboard sophisticate
What if this is true love?
Not some town hall certificate
It’s the way you make me feel
Magnificent Hurt

I stood at the door and I almost went through with it
Tight as the angle of my amen
And I swore there and then
As I feign and I flirt
I unbuttoned my shirt
To the way you make me feel
Magnificent Hurt
To the way you make me feel
Magnificent Hurt
It’s the way you make me feel
It’s the way you make me feel
Magnificent
