David Essex For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her

What a dream I had, pressed in organdie

Clothed in crinoline of smoky Burgundy

Softer than the rain.

I wandered empty streets down, past the shop displays

I heard cathedral bells, dripping down the alley ways

As I walked on.

And when you ran to me your, cheeks flushed with the night

We walked on frosted fields, of juniper and lamplight

I held your hand.

And when I awoke, felt you warm and near

I kissed your honey hair, with my grateful tears

Oh I love you girl

Oh I love, you

Girl

David Essex Lamplight

Babe I see your lamplight

Shining from your window

Babe I see your lamplight

Baby do you feel low

Waiting on your fear, no

Waiting on me

But I don’t really

Wanna go alone

But I get the feeling

I better get on home

Ooh baby, would I look right

Climbing up the drainpipe

Baby would it feel right

If I stayed all night

And I don’t really

Wanna go alone

Should I pack my bag

And get on out, get home

Got me rocking and reeling

Reeling and feeling

Gotta get to you babe

Just gotta get through, ooh ooh

Shining from your window
