I'm Not Angry

From The Elvis Costello Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

You're upstairs with the boyfriend while I'm left here to listen
I hear you calling his name, I hear the stutter of ignition
I could hear you whispering as I crept by your door
So you found some other joker who could please you more

Chorus:
I'm not angry, I'm not angry anymore
I'm not angry, I'm not angry anymore
Ooh, I know what you're doin'
I know where you've been
I know where, but I don't care
'Cause there's no such thing as an original sin

I've got this camera click, click, clickin' in my head
I got you talking with your hands, got you smiling with your legs
Spend all my time in a vanity factory
Wonderin' when they're gonna come and take it all back

(Chorus)

Oh, there's no such thing as an original sin
Oh, there's no such thing as an original sin
I'm not angry, I'm not angry anymore
I'm not angry, I'm not angry anymore
I'm not angry, I'm not angry
I'm not angry anymore, I'm not angry anymore
I'm not angry anymore, I'm not angry anymore...
