Testo della canzone 15 Petals di Elvis Costello
15 Petals
One for every year I spent with you
Jewels and precious metals will never do

I love you twisted
And I love you straight
Id write it down but I cant concentrate
Words wont obey they do as they please
And all I am left with are these…

15 Petals
One for every year I spent with you
Jewels and precious metals will never do

The thorn is blunted
The perfume will fade
I stand where sun is set
I crave the shade
Down in the tavern with Mary and Jane
Palms reached for alms as they throw

15 Petals…
One for every hour that were apart
Tears and useless battles
Ill never start

Mussolini highway
Theres a frankincense tree
I picked some up there to carry with me
You take me to places where Id never go
I love you more than you know

15 Petals
Scattered in the path where you will tread
15 Petals
Of vivid red

One wine-bar vamp with the polythene face
Ein Panzer Kommander with no hair in place
The crowded battallions drilled holes in the square
