Music of the week #4 - 'She' - Elvis Costello

Celebrating Woman's day, here is a music about us!

Elvis Costello 'She' was on the Original Sound Track of Notting Hill, one of my favorite romantic comedies ever! 
The main actors are also two favorites of mine Julia Roberts as a famous actress Anne Scott and Hugh Grant as a bookstore owner William Thacker.

May be the face I can't forget 
The trace of pleasure or regret 
May be my treasure or the price I have to pay 
May be the song that summer sings 
May be the chill that autumn brings 
May be a hundred different things 
Within the measure of a day

May be the beauty or the beast 
May be the famine or the feast 
May turn each day into a heaven or a hell 
She may be the mirror of my dreams 
The smile reflected in a stream 
She may not be what she may seem 
Inside her shell 

Who always seems so happy in a crowd 
Whose eyes can be so private and so proud 
No one's allowed to see them when they cry 
May be the love that cannot hope to last 
May come to me from shadows of the past 
That I'll remember till the day I die 

May be the reason I survive 
The why and wherefore I'm alive 
The one I'll care for through the rough in ready years 
I'll take her laughter and her tears 
And make them all my souvenirs 
For where she goes I've got to be 
The meaning of my life is 


She, oh she
