Lady in the Elevator

lyrics

Done-up hair, atop a frail frame
Eyes that smile, words that make me do the same
A glimpse of who she was, in the shine of her dancing shoes
A glimpse of who she is, in what she has to lose

She’s been waiting for him, to change
That’s something she never thought she’d want
She said “I don’t want you to leave me, darlin’
But don’t let me hold you back
I’ll see you some bright morning”

He picked her up at 8, in May 1962
In his Ford Fairlane, gulfstream blue
It was a little run down, the one thing to his name
But he had a ring in his pocket, and something to say

She’s been waiting for him, to change
That’s something she never thought she’d want
She said “I don’t want you to leave me, darlin’
But don’t let me hold you back
I’ll see you some bright morning”

Too many machines, sing their song around his bed
Too many words, that she never said
“I don’t know if you can hear me, but I’ll keep talking anyway
I don’t want there to be, something I forgot to say

I’ve been waiting for you, to change
That’s something I never thought I’d want
I don’t want you to leave me, darlin’
But don’t let me hold you back
I’ll see you some bright morning

Oh my hands they may be empty
But my heart is full
I will see you again
I’ll see you some bright morning”
