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