High Fidelity

Album: Get Happy! (1980)
  • Some things you never get used to
    Even though you're feeling like another man
    There's nothing that he can do for you
    To shut me away as you walk through
    Lovers laughing in their amateur hour
    Holding hands in the corridors of power
    Even though I'm with somebody else right now

    High fidelity
    Can you hear me? Can you hear me?
    Can you hear me?

    High fidelity
    Can you hear me? Can you hear me?
    Can you hear me?

    There's a new kind of dedication
    Maybe you'll find it down the tunnel
    Maybe I got above my station
    Maybe you're only changing channel

    Even though you're nowhere near me
    And I know you kiss him so sincerely now
    Even though the signal's indistinct
    And you worry what silly people think
    Who just can't wait to feel so frozen out
    I bet he thinks that he was chosen out of millions
    I suppose he'll never know about

    High fidelity
    Can you hear me? Can you hear me?
    Can you hear me?

    High fidelity
    Can you hear me? Can you hear me?
    Can you hear me?
    Can you hear me? Writer/s: ELVIS COSTELLO
