Songtekst

{transcribed by Adri Verhoef, 6-6-2013}

We were together since we were five
She was so pretty, Emma was a star in ev'ryone's eyes
And when she said she'd be a movie queen, nobody laughed
Her 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 ev'ry 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 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 has ever seen

[break]

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
I tried so very hard not to leave you alone
I just can't keep on tryin' no more"

Emmaline!
Oh, Emmaline!

Oh, Emmaline!
Emma, Emmaline
Emmaline
