lyrics

EMILY (with chords - so you can play along)

INTRO: C#m G#7 A E – G#7

VERSE 1:
C#m G#7
The glimmer in your eye / the innocent kind
A E – G#7
You’ve got your ways of finding
C#m G#7
A way into his skin / where no woman has been
A E – G#7
Now he’ll spend his days fantasizing

CHORUS 1:
A E G#7
Oh, Emily, everything isn’t so gray
C#m B
I know that you want him
A E G#7
But Oh, it’s breaking my soul cuz you’re taking him in
C#m - B
How badly I need him
A G#7
So now, I’m begging on my knees
E G#7 C#m - B
That you would find a heart to care
A G#7 [hold]
I am warning you Emily… don’t you dare.

VERSE 2:
C#m G#7
You’ve got the gift of youth / and men flock to you
A E – G#7
Ready with promise and candor
C#m G#7
But he’s everything to me / he’s the only thing
A E – G#7
He’s barely a weight on your shoulder.

CHORUS 2:
A E G#7
Oh, Emily, everything isn’t so gray
C#m B
I know that you want him
A E G#7
But Oh, it’s breaking my soul cuz you’re taking him in
C#m - B
How badly I need him
A G#7
So now, I’m begging on my knees
E G#7 C#m - B
That you would find a heart to care
A G#7 [hold]
I am warning you Emily… don’t you dare.

BRIDGE:
F#m
You could go anywhere
C#m
You could do anything
F#m
Take your heart’s desire
G#7
But if it’s him, I’ll open fire.

[interlude – 8 bars] A E G#7 C#m-B A E G#7 C#m-B


LAST CHORUS:
A E G#7
Oh, Emily, everything isn’t so gray
C#m B
I know that you want him
A E G#7
But Oh, it’s breaking my soul cuz you’re taking him in
C#m - B
How badly I need him
A G#7
So now, I’m begging on my knees
E G#7 C#m - B
That you would find a heart to care
A G#7
I am warning you Emily…
A G#7
I am warning you Emily…
A G#7 [hold] C#m
I am warning you Emily… don’t you dare.
