Ellen Lyrics by 10000 Maniacs
Ellen by 10000 Maniacs
Eager to please was just the way that he was
though his attempts there falling short,
see he would tell of all his conquests,
was he bragging?
but in the evening all alone
Ellen unplanned delays
saving for someone who really cared about you
invincible they say
married to your name
she was the kind between a child and a lady,
quick was her temper
like a blaze from an ember
no one had measured to her standard,
so in the evening all alone all alone
how do I tell them to open their minds
and to take a chance
maybe on finding life's treasure stubborn they stay set
in their ways really not wanting to be lonely not alone.
