Dear Elaine

Lyrics:

Wood

My dear Elaine, may I see you again ?
For I’ve loved you and I hope to be forgiven
It’s been a cold night, how I long to see the light
To have you there, to feel your hair

Dear Elaine, will it still be the same ?
From the gateway to your arms I am forbidden
It’s been a cold night, need the love that burns so bright
To have you there, to feel your hair

Thoughts that once remained discreet
Fall like servants at your feet
Ah ah ah

Come here, Elaine, please, attend to the pain
Please, relieve the darkened clouds of evening
Prayers I could say, how you swept them all away
I can’t believe you chose to leave

God, that wears a sallow face
Seems to put me in my place
Ah ah ah

Dear Elaine, will it still be the same ?
Now the house of spirit crumbles for your love wears many gowns
Love has risen, it has stumbled
Dear Elaine, why should you wish to leave ?

Dear Elaine, may I see you again ?
For I’ve loved you and I hope to be forgiven
It’s been a cold night, how I long to see the light
To have you there, to feel your hair, dear Elaine
