Elephant tears tracking softly down his face
All the pain he couldn't place
Someone had to take the fall

Didn't look close enough to see
That this elephant was me

Butterfly quilt stretching all across the sky
Filled the autumn day with light
They flew straight into my eyes

Well I was blinded by the sun
But it turned cold and now they're gone

Well I'm free just like I wanted; got no promises to tend;
Got no favors left to lend
Just the mark that's on my hand

Well that black-eyed Susan knows my number
My name she's soon to learn
I'm just one step from her turn
And then I'm done

So I'll go on just the same, with my body and my name
I've got nothing left to hide;
Everything is open wide

But I hear you in your song
Yeah girl I heard you all along

Yeah I hear you in your song
Yeah baby I heard you all along
