I heard she was seldom seen as pretty
So wrapped up in shadows that, she was rarely seen at all
Frankly the rumours don’t convince me
But a moment, someone could survive such a fall

I heard that he was seldom given regard
As anything more than what he already was
Just a flirt, stifled by a sweetheart
A wandering soul, within the bonds of trust

And I heard
A stammered “Easy does it”
And the creak of a musket
In the dark
And I heard
An elephant exit
The room as he left with-
Out his heart
