Paul McCartney and Wings: My Brave Face



My brave, my brave, my brave face

I've been living in style
Unaccustomed as I am to the luxury life
I've been hitting the town and it didn't hit back

I've been doing the rounds
Unaccustomed as I am to the time on my hands
Now I don't have to tell anybody when I'm gonna get back

Ever since you went away I've had
This sentimental inclination not to change a single thing
As I pull the sheet back on the bed
I wanna go bury my head in your pillow

Now that I'm alone again
I can't stop breaking down again
The simplest things set me off again
Take me to that place

Where I can't find my brave face
Where I can't find my brave face
My brave, my brave, my brave face

My brave face

I've been living a lie, unaccustomed as I am
To the work of a housewife, I've been breaking up
Dirty dishes and been throwing them away

Ever since you left I have been trying to compose a
'Baby, will you please come home?' Note meant for you
As I clear away another untouched TV dinner
From the table I laid for two

Now that I'm alone again
I can't stop breaking down again
The simplest things set me off again
Take me to that place

Where I can't find my brave face
Where I can't find my brave face
My brave, my brave, my brave face

My brave face

FYI: The original video has a 26 second introduction consisting of dialog. You can see it here. I choose the above video because it starts with the music.

Wikipedia: My Brave Face
"My Brave Face" is a single from Paul McCartney's 1989 album, Flowers in the Dirt. Written by McCartney and Elvis Costello, "My Brave Face" is one of the most popular songs from Flowers in the Dirt. It peaked at #18 in the United Kingdom a week after its debut, and #25 in the United States 7 weeks after its debut. It was McCartney's last top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 until his 2014 collaboration with Kanye West, "Only One".

Music video
The music video for "My Brave Face" was shot in April 1989, directed by Roger Lunn. It was frequently seen on video channels that year, and was released in 2007 on the three disc collection The McCartney Years. It features a Japanese McCartney-fanatic who acquires McCartney memorabilia, films, and audio by means of robbery, and, allegedly, through Sotheby's. The video was shot in both black-and-white and in colour, and it features rare videos of him with The Beatles as well as with Wings. There is a video of him and the rest of the Beatles doing the Charleston, and him and Linda (as well as a visible Joe English in the background) being greeted by people in New Orleans. In the end, the Japanese fanatic gets arrested, and a clip of McCartney looking in the camera is shown, with 2007 McCartney voicing-over on the audio commentary, "What did you expect?" The video earned a nomination in "Best Video" category on the 1990 Brit Awards.


Wikipedia: Flowers in the Dirt
Flowers in the Dirt is the eighth studio solo album by Paul McCartney, it was released in 1989 on Parlophone. Upon release, It was considered a major return to form for McCartney because he was embarking on his first world tour since the Wings Over the World tour in 1975–76. Flowers in the Dirt was also celebrated due to its musical quality, which earned McCartney some of his best reviews in years. The album gained number 1 status in the United Kingdom.

Wikipedia: Paul McCartney and Wings
Wings, also known as Paul McCartney and Wings, were a rock band formed in 1971 by former Beatle Paul McCartney with his wife Linda McCartney, session drummer Denny Seiwell, and former Moody Blues guitarist Denny Laine. Wings were noted for frequent personnel changes as well as commercial success, going through three lead guitarists and four drummers. However, the core trio of the McCartneys and Laine remained intact throughout the group's existence.
