about

This song was inspired by the character Estella from Dickens' Great Expectations. Estella was trained from the time she was a child to seduce men and ultimately break their hearts. In the story, Pip the main protagonist falls in love with Estella, and pursues her against all thought and reason. Even after she tells him that she is incapable of love he still cannot help but love her. I felt a kindred spirit with Pip.

lyrics

Beyond the trees, the brewery, holds secrets lost in sullen memory. The fallen leaves, and evergreens, recall our broken scenes. Estella sits in lonely meditation, her garden full of fears. She won't tell me but I feel it when I ask her.

Deal me in Sweet Estella, I hear what you say but I know all your ways and the games you play. Dealing cards, trumping hearts Estella our love will forever be grey.

I'll sit and wait, outside the gate, delinquent action coming too late. I call her name, her sweet refrain, just causes further pain. She turns to make her way across the garden, to deal my final blow. She won't tell me but I feel it when I ask her.

Deal me in Sweet Estella, I hear what you say but I know all your ways and the games you play. Dealing cards, trumping hearts Estella our love will forever be grey.

Someday, some how, you'll know. I hope, on your wedding day it snows.

Deal me in Sweet Estella, I hear what you say but I know all your ways and the games you play. Dealing cards, trumping hearts Estella our love will forever be grey.

Deal me in Sweet Estella, I hear what you say but I know all your ways and the games you play. Dealing cards, trumping hearts Estella our love will forever be grey.
