    Out 7 2010, 20h52

    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
    Her face like an angel
    She could be anything

    Emily
    Emma Emily
    I'm gonna write your name high
    On that silver screen
    Emily
    Emma Emily
    I'm gonna make you the biggest star
    This world has ever seen

    At seventeen
    We were wed
    And I worked 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

    And 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 Emily come alive

    Emma Emily
    I'm gonna write your name high
    On that silver screen
    Emily
    Emma Emily
    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
    I tried so very hard
    Not to leave you alone
    I just can't keep on tryin' no more

    Oh Emily
