"Esther" as written by and Alan Gregg....
Esther's been reading books,
She's changed the way that she talks and the way that she looks.
Her coffee is black now and so are her clothes,
She's shaved off her hair and put a ring through her nose.

Esther's been watching movies,
And she must have seen someone that she would like to be.
With looks like hers she could be on the screen,
But she's the worst actor that I've ever seen.

Esther, I've known you for ages,
And I've watched you through all the changes.
Esther, we used to be the best of friends,
But now we're becoming strangers.

Esther's been burning bridges.
I remember the time when she turned religious
But soon she turned her back on the church
And brushed it aside to continue the search
Because Esther's been searching for something
She doesn't quite know what it is
Yes, Esther's been looking for something
Maybe something that doesn't exist

(Esther, isn't it funny
How we don't do the things we used to do.
You don't think about that anymore, Esther,
But Esther, I still think about you.)

Esther's been getting lonely
After she cut herself off from the only
People on whom she could depend
People who were happy to call her their friend

Esther, I've known you for ages
And I've watched you through all the stages
Esther, we used to be the best of friends
But now we're becoming strangers
Oh, Esther...
Oh, Esther...
