Track Name: Elizabeth
Elizabeth

Elizabeth's walking through the garden
At the moment that I call
A wooden engraving of The Last Super
Is hanging on my wall
You're supposed to quote the best line from every play
Not every line from just the one
Winds are dancing with trees
As distant bells sing a mournful song

Elizabeth asked me if I know her name
I said I do but I'd never tell
She said with everything that's going on around here
I guess that's probably just as well
Everybody's going to let you down
That's why I always try and let them down first
I think it's going to be a long walk home tonight
She said as she's staring at her empty purse

She knows every word of that country song
She makes me sing it and she sings along
Surrounded by the friendships that went wrong
Sitting in the darkness where I come from
As she steals the show

Elizabeth's different every time you see her
She changes like a Russian doll
Walks back home alone through the garden
As the rains begin to fall
The garden fence blew down last night
The dogs that were barking are now in sight
Travelling girl beneath a wounded moon
Tells me everything's going to be all right

She knows every word of that country song
She makes me sing it and she sings along
Surrounded by the friendships that went wrong
Sitting in the darkness where I come from
As she steals the show
