I first saw her at a party across a crowded room.
Glass in hand, and booming laugh, and a beautiful costume:
Ella wore a navy dress with stars spilled down the front;
with bright red hair and walking boots she looked so confident.

Oh Ella Brown with your hair so bright; your hips so round and your head held high; beauty wrapped in eloquence; Ella Brown I loved you once.

Ella let me follow her; disciple, or a pet; not a lover, not as such; not ready for all that yet. I spent my time in awe of her but she rarely let me close. I told myself I didn't care; it was all experience.


We walked under the stars one night, the milky way a blur. I had a weight lodged on my chest and passed it onto her. I asked her if she felt for me the way I felt inside. She said, "my dear, I never have. But nor have I ever lied."

Sometimes you love. Sometimes you lose. Sometimes you learn.
Sometimes you love. Sometimes you lose. Sometimes you learn.

Chorus x 3, third time finishes with "oh Ella Brown I THOUGHT I loved you once."
