"My Brave Face" as written by Elvis Costello and Paul Mccartney....
I've been living in style,
Unaccostumed as I am
To the luxury life,
I've been hitting the town
But it didn't hit back
I've been doing the rounds
Unaccostumed as I am
To the time on my hands,
Now I don't have to tell anybody
When I'm going to get back
Ever since you went away
I've had this sentimental inclination
Not to change a single thing
As I pull the sheets back on the bed,
I want to go bury my head
In your pillow.
Now that I'm alone again
I can't stop breaking down again
The simplest things set me off again
And take me to that place
Where I can't find my brave face,
Where I can't find my brave face,
My brave, my brave, my brave face
I've been living a lie
Unaccostumed as I am
To the work of a housewife,
I've been breaking up
Dirty dishes and throwing them away
Ever since you left I have been trying to compose
A "baby will you please come home" note meant for you.
As I clear away another untouched t.v. dinner
From the table I laid for two.
Now that I'm alone again
I can't stop breaking down again
The simplest things set me off again
And take me to that place
Where I can't find my brave face,
Where I can't find my brave face,
My brave, my brave, my brave face
