Magnificent Hurt

From The Elvis Costello Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

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



Alternate lyrics

From the chelmico Remix on Alive At Memphis Magnetic

After talking in tongues, I began to preach
What falls from the branch is an apple or peach

[Rachel]
舌を出してその場しのぎ
愛らしいその小芝居
未来みたいなシナジー
視線の奥にはまだ無い轍

可愛いと悲しいは紙一重
分からないならその先に飛べ
タイミングは遅かれ早かれ
分からないならそこの神に問え

2つの演技 かける天秤
から回るまでふかすエンジン
僕には無い責任
君の形に塗りつぶしたステンシル
なんだって知ってるし
どこにだって行ける僕たち

It's the way you make me feel, magnificent hurt

[Mamiko]
これまたまた昔のハナシ
想定外な僕の目をちょろまかし
赤い空の下もうどうすりゃいい
いうなればこれ若気の至り
枝からりんご落ちる時
僕の心もまた落ちこみ
時々分かんなくなる
故に君に夢中全て捧げていた
理解したい
刺激剤を飲んで歩く
君は一歩リードいつだって
いつだって君は僕を笑う
こりゃ見事なほどの痛みだ

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

どうしようもない
きみがその気にさせる時
振り回されにいってる
笑えよ
どうしようもない
きみがその気にさせた時
痛いよ クセになってる
バカなのはどっち

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

どうしようもない
きみがその気にさせる時
振り回されにいってる
笑えよ
美しすぎるきみ
許しはじめた心と身体
もう止まることはない
刺激的さ
ああ痛いな
