Taken with Your Elegance


If I stopped to visit you, would you invite me to come inside
I’m taken with your elegance, dazzled by your style
Such a grand old lady, I’m sure you’ve much to say
How lonely you must feel since they’ve all gone away
Standing in your faded dress, your makeup almost gone
Will no one come to groom you, restore your aging flair
Open up your windows replace that stuffy air
Sand and paint and plaster, straighten out your bones
Dress you in the colors and fabrics of your day
Fire burning in your hearth, you’ll no longer be alone
Filled with love and laughter, you will once again be home
