    Default Elvis Costello

    I love Elvis Costello.

    His wife is identified as a likely ISTp or ESTj below. Here is a photo of the two of them:

    A few more photos of him:

    On youtube:

    And lyrics from a couple of songs:

    Elvis Costello
    Accidents Will Happen

    oh I just don't know where to begin
    love just doesn't wait forever
    it's now or never
    but she keeps him hanging on
    the silly cheering her on
    she says she can't go home without a chaperon

    accidents will happen
    they're only hit and run
    you used to be a victim
    now you're not the only one
    accidents will happen
    they're only hit and run
    I don't want to hear it
    'cause I know what I've done

    there's so many fish in the sea
    that only rise up in a sweat of smoke like mercury
    but they keep you hanging on
    they say you're so young
    your mind is made up
    but your mouth is undone


    and it's the damage that we do
    you'll never know
    it's the words that we don't say
    that scare me so
    there are so many people to see
    so many people you can check upon
    and add to your collection
    but they keep you hanging on
    until you're well hung
    your mouth is made up
    but your mind is undone

    Sulky Girl

    She wears a wedding ring her sister lent
    To throw them off the scent
    Just let them guess; it's what they expect
    Who in the world has bitten her neck?
    She's discovered wearing last night's dress
    The carnal and cunning she couldn't express
    Who do you think she's trying to impress

    I think you'd better hold your tongue
    Although you've never been that strong
    I'm sorry to say that I knew all along
    You're no match for that sulky girl

    She left her European town
    Before she let the family down
    She couldn't stand the massacre game
    So she dyed her hair, adopted another name
    With the evidence of passing out
    Stamped on her hand; she glows in the dark
    He thinks she's from another planet


    Sulky girl
    I'm sure you look a picture when you cry
    Threatening the silent treatment doesn't qualify
    It's like money in the bank
    Your expression is blank
    And when a chance appears
    You'll be nearer to tears
    Sulky girl (x2)

    He said "Hello my pretty flower"
    Just trying out his tycoon power
    Avoiding the mirror, her pitying stare
    She said "Your're mistaken
    Your money's no good in here"
    Just some stupid little know-it-all
    You thought she looked easy
    He's not that astute
    You'll pay for the distance
    Between cruelty and beauty


    I won't tell you again
    What do you gain by blackening her name
    She's smarter than you
    Oh isn't it a shame
    You're going to lose that sulky girl

    Sulky girl
    I saw you practicing your blackmail faces
    Suddenly you're talking like a dutchess
    But you're still a waitress
    I saw through your pretense
    But in my defence
    There are a few events
    I think will spell the sentence
    Sulky girl (x4)

    Everyday I Write The Book

    Don't tell me you don't know what love is
    When you're old enough to know better
    When you find strange hands in your sweater
    When your dreamboat turns out to be a footnote
    I'm a man with a mission in two or three editions

    And I'm giving you a longing look
    Everyday, everyday, everyday I write the book

    Chapter One we didn't really get along
    Chapter Two I think I fell in love with you
    You said you'd stand by me in the middle of Chapter Three
    But you were up to your old tricks in Chapters Four, Five and Six

    The way you walk
    The way you talk, and try to kiss me, and laugh
    In four or five paragraphs
    All your compliments and your cutting remarks
    Are captured here in my quotation marks

    Don't tell me you don't know the difference
    Between a lover and a fighter
    With my pen and my electric typewriter
    Even in a perfect world where everyone was equal
    I'd still own the film rightsand be working on the sequel
    It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.
    -Mark Twain

    You can't wake a person who is pretending to be asleep.

    I've always thought about him as an INTp.

    Looks ENTp to me. And I think Diana is too to be ISTp or ESTj.
