Dave Matthews Band – Eleanor lyrics

She said give me perspective
Give me peace of mind I
Cause the world so selective
So lopsided
So unkind

Way back in Virginia
Way back in my
History she said

There's an empty armed
Empty handed girl
Is that me she said

And I said
You are no empty shell
You are no empty shell
You are no empty shell
I say
Cause the brightest???
The loudest???

Heavenly bound I said
Now you know

Plucked from the sky like diamond
Plucked from the sky like spring's new leaf
Whether it's
God's will
Or my wish
It happened yeah
You were
Plucked from the sky like dragonfly

Almost an angel, eleanor
Almost an angel, eleanor is...
Almost an angel, eleanor
Almost an angel

Almost an angel, yeah
Almost an angel, yeah
Almost an angel, yeah
Almost an angel, yeah

She turns to her father
His head in a book
She said
Why even bother
He don't look up
He don't look up
He don't look up
He don't look up
He don't look still

He thinks he knows me well
He thinks he knows this heart
He's memorized my mind
He's just memorized some lines

The brightest???
The loudest???

Heavenly bound I said
Now you know

Plucked from the sky like diamond
Plucked from the sky like spring's new leaf

Whether it's
God's will
Or my wish

It happened
Thank God you were

Plucked from the sky like dragonfly

You're
Almost an angel, eleanor
Almost an angel, eleanor is...
Almost an angel, eleanor
Almost an angel

Almost an angel, yeah
Almost an angel, yeah
Almost an angel, yeah
Almost an angel, yeah

Almost an angel, yeah
Almost an angel, yeah

Almost an angel / I found my guardian angel
Almost an angel / I found my guardian angel
Almost an angel / I found my guardian angel
Almost an angel / I got my guiding light

Almost an angel, eleanor is...
Almost an angel, eleanor is...
Almost an angel, eleanor is...
Almost an angel

Almost an angel, yeah
