El Greco is a song by Paula Cole about her struggles throughout her 7 year period away from music. How she'd forgotten who she was, how this time away humbled her and how much more grateful she is for the 2nd time around. She had stated in an interview that it's probably her favorite track from Courage.

I'm black on blacker velvet, milk skin and veins
Like some El Greco painting, so full of pain
So full of longing for light of day
