Little Atoms lyrics

Rating: 3.23
Song Details
Artist(s)Elvis Costello
Album(s)All This Useless Beauty

I arose and Marigold lay down with Curious Iris
Cherry gave to Victor her prudence and her virus
For the sake of purity I can recall the time and place
Between Wisdom and Murder she gave up her immaculate face
My poor belated chastity fell foul of grown up games,
With false and lovely modesty
I can recall the names I'll miss
In the particle of me that cares for this
I betrayed those little atoms with a kiss
Patience has her virtue still
but every grace must have its price
I through some felicity may spin a tale of constant vice
I took my better nature out, drowned it in the babbling stream
Took the blossom of my youth and blew it all to smithereens
Chorus
And if you still don't like my song then you can just go to hell
I don't care if I'm right or wrong or if my typewriter can spell
But I cannot promise you I've said ";Goodbye"; to childish things
There's still some pretty insults left and such sport in threatening
Chorus
And for the sake of clarity
They are ";Faith";, ";Hope";, and ";Charity";
In the particle of me that cares for this
I betrayed those little atoms with a kiss
