10000 Maniacs – Ellen lyrics

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
