Emmaline Lyrics

Urge Overkill – Emmaline Lyrics

from album: The Supersonic Storybook (1991)
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
And worked day and night to earn our daily bread
And everyday 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 backroom, 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 had ever seen

It was 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
I tried so very hard not to leave you alone...
I just can't keep on trying no more"
