We were together since we were five
She was so pretty
Emma was a star in everyone's eyes
And when she said she'd be a movie queen, nobody laughed
A face like an angel
She could be anything
Emmaline
Emma, Emmaline
I'm gonna write your name high on that silver screen
Emmaline
Emma, Emmaline
I'm gonna make you the biggest star this world has ever seen

At seventeen we were wed
I'd work day and night to earn our daily bread
And every day Emma would go out searching for that play that never, ever came her way
You know sometimes she'd come home so depressed, I'd hear her crying in the back room, feel so distressed
And I'd remember back when she was five to the words that used to make Emmaline come alive
It was, "Emmaline
Emma, Emmaline
I'm gonna write your name high on that silver screen
Emmaline
Emma, Emmaline
I'm gonna make you the biggest star this world has ever seen"

It was a cold and dark December night when I opened up the bedroom door to find her lying still and cold upon the bed
A love letter lying on the bedroom floor
It read, "Darling I love you but I just can't keep on living on dreams no more
(Darling I love you) I tried so very hard not to leave you alone (That's right)
I just can't keep on trying no more"
Emmaline

Aaargh, Emmaline

Aaargh, Emmaline
Emma, Emmaline

Emmaline, aaargh
