Emily Crying
No one understands
No one’s even trying
I thought I heard a whip-poor-will
But it was just Emily crying
She had to move away
It never crossed my mind
After the end of the world
There’s still Emily crying
And it sounds so real, when there’s no one around
I wish I could forget that sound
It’s just the sound of Emily crying
I know it doesn’t matter now, after all these years have gone by
But Emily I can still hear you cry
Out on the playing fields we made up a game
Based on the Book of Love
All the moves were the same
But then came a day when she was late
And everything we might have had just slipped away
Except for the sound of Emily crying
It’s just the sound
