This is my song for Elle
I play it in three-quarter time
It's slow and it's simple, I wrote it this morning
After holding her close as she cried
This is my song for Elle
At once, tough and fragile, it's true
I can still see her there in the doorway, her hair falling down
Her eyes tear-stained and blue

This is my song for a dancer
I think of her sometimes that way
She's light and she's graceful, elegantly wistful
As she moves through the steps of her day
This is my song for a dreamer
She's the girl with the world in her hands
Now, she's feeling confused 'bout her moves
What to do when the world don't work out like you planned?

This is my song for Elle
Take solace where solace is due
Scorpio lover, the gray of November
Seems it's forever following you
This is my song for Elle
Lover, leave all that darkness behind
Do you remember that night when we stared at the lights on the ocean?
I can still see them shining...
