Forgive Her Anything

This song is by Elvis Costello & The Attractions and appears on the album Blood & Chocolate (1986) and on the 2002 re-release of Mighty Like a Rose (1991) by Elvis Costello.

Oh, the TV went off like three day old milk
That shook this town down better than most
And it always was less of idea and more of a boast
Oh, you're burning in the bloom of life
Till you're powder in the grave
Or you're pounding in the counter beggin' for more
Till you evaporate

You'd forgive her anything
When you look like you, my pretty miss
I wonder where you are tonight
When this place becomes pityless

Oh, I couldn't sleep, but I can't complain
Oh, this won't hurt a bit, oh, this won't hurt again
When the roof comes down and the walls move in
Oh, he didn't know it could feel like that
When your face turned away and the day turned black
And the rain fell like a curtain
Oh, it's my turn to begin
To forgive her anything

You'd forgive her anything
If you knew what I know
You'd forgive her anything
So where did all my pride go?

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh, oh, oh, oh, you'd forgive her anything
If you knew what I know
You'd forgive her anything
So where did all my pride go?
