Emma Louise Boy

You’ve got sparks

It’s not enough and we make time

Speaking sheets

And closed doors to dull out words, whoa

But all you do is lay around

Spending time

Smoking cigarettes

Boy you know your heart’s so big

And you could love

Give it all you got

Sitting in clouds of smoke

Waiting all alone

Why?

Talking to me on the phone

When you’re feeling low

We made plans

But you don’t see them keeping space

And open eyes and empty minds

You’re not anywhere, whoa

But all you do is lay around

Spending time

Smoking cigarettes

Boy you know your heart’s so big

And you could love

Give it all you got

Sitting in clouds of smoke

Waiting all alone

Why?

Talking to me on the phone

When you’re feeling low

Fill your lungs, waiting, waiting

Fill your lungs, waiting, waiting, for yourself

But all you do is lay around

Spending time

Smoking cigarettes

Boy you know your heart’s so big

And you could love

Give it all you got

Sitting in clouds of smoke

Waiting all alone

Why?

Talking to me on the phone

When you’re feeling low

Emma Louise Al’s Song

Quiet as he breaks, shaking in his voice he grew his hair real long

And she has seen its length, she has watched it grow from when it was short

But we all lie, yeah that’s what we’re known to do

We’re all humans in this game, you prove and prove it through

And we all lie, yeah we try and hide the truth

When she climbs on top of you, you feel like you used to, feel like you used to

And hold her while she fakes, footprints on your heart where her head should lay

And crawl into your bed, back into your arms, you’re falling back in love

But we all lie, yeah that’s what we’re known to do

We’re all humans in this game, you prove and prove it through

And we all lie, yeah we try and hide the truth

When she climbs on top of you, you feel like you used to, feel like you used to

Emma Louise Talk Baby Talk

So this is really it this time? no more dramas in our life

You sealed it with a kiss on my lips, on my forehead, and I cry

And we pushed it up hill, baby push, baby push, baby pushed it up hill as far as we could

Now we’re rollin’ down sour, sour baby, sour

Yeah, rollin’ down sour right

But why can’t we just talk about it?

We used to be such good friends

Oh we used to be such good friends

Now all we do is fight

And all I wanna do is talk all night

Baby talk all night,

Baby talk all night,

Baby talk all night,

Baby talk all night,

Baby talk all night,

Baby talk all

Why can’t we just talk about it?

Hey remember when we lit your shoes on fire in a backstreets of New York

And we were only happy cause we had each other together breaking law

And we were on fire, fire baby, fire

Talk about fire all night

And westside lovers under midtown cover talk about fire alright

But why can’t we just talk about it?

We used to be such good friends

Oh we used to be such good friends

Now all we do is fight

And all I wanna do is talk all night

Baby talk all night

Baby talk all night

Baby talk all night

Baby talk all night

Baby talk all night

Baby talk all

Why can’t we just talk about it?

But I was your best thing kissing on the back streets

Rollin’ in Booklyn dirt

And free were the sins made young and so restless

New York won’t feel the same,

New York, New York, New York won’t feel the same

Baby talk all night,

Baby talk all night,

Baby talk all night,

Baby talk all night,

Baby talk all night,

Baby talk all

Why can’t we just talk about it?

Emma Louise Night Song

Fight, gun held to a father’s son at night

Cross stripped underneath their thumbs

And burn like the best end of a cigarette

And oh… night sings ooh…

And height eyes closed under father’s arms in fright

He is pressed to the sound of guns

And broken like the back end of a sinking boat

And oh… night sings ooh…

And rip in her skin, husband cried

Sweat in his children’s eyes

And how do you choke with guns at throat

And all the stolen peoples broke

And oh… night sings, night sings, night sings

Emma Louise 1000 Sundowns

I met a boy who made me cry

He said “stay away from my kind”

I said I appreciate his honesty and I

stayed away for a while

Then he cried and I laughed on the telephone

And we talked for hours

He says he wants to be a rock-star

So do I, so do I

Guess it would never work out

But on these summer nights

When the weather’s right

I miss him by my side

Oh by my side

And when the wind blows wrecks from the hills

On these April nights, I’ll think of him

Oh the boy who surely taught me how to love

Showed me how to trust

And I gave in

And oh our love it was so strong

It was so deep

And we were young

And I was a little bit naive

But still how I was in his arms for one thousand sundowns

It was a love worth remembering

And on these summer nights

When the weather’s right

I miss him by my side

Oh by my side

And oh, my darling

Please say you miss me too

On these summer nights

I miss me by your side

And I know I’ll see your face at the gates of heaven

When it’s my turn to go

But oh Lord, please do not pass judgment on us

We were but young and full of love

And oh please let me cry in his arms

Just once more

For one thousand sundowns

For one thousand sundowns

Emma Louise Falling Apart

I feel like one of us is gonna end up far behind the finish line

I don’t know why but I can just feel it

And I can see it shaping up, could be some kind of disaster

But I can’t help but wanna see it through

There’s something about me and you

When I think that it won’t work, ow

I just can’t help but keep falling apart

I keep on falling, falling apart

I keep on falling apart

I keep on falling, falling apart

I keep on falling apart

And I guess I can sketch it out, write a script line for [?]

Like you to say it, and how smooth it would be coming from your mouth

Mmh, and I keep asking question but they can’t be answered

By anything other than time itself, mmh

When I think that it won’t work, ow

I just can’t help but keep falling apart

I keep on falling, falling apart

I keep on falling apart, oh

I keep on falling and falling, I…

I keep on falling and falling, I…

I keep on falling, falling apart

And tell me how can I build myself up for love, love

If I just keep on crumbling, crumbling down, mmh

Yeah I just keep on falling

I keep on falling and falling

Yeah I just keep on falling apart

But I keep on falling and falling apart

I keep on falling apart

I keep on falling, falling apart, oh, yeah

I keep on falling and falling, I…

I keep on falling and falling, I…

I keep on falling, falling, and falling, falling

Emma Louise Atlas Eyes

Slim faced child

The memories slide

Against my mind

And laying on my bedroom floor, young

With your arms crossed to the ceilings

When the aliens came

Oh and I thought we were safe

But you saw ghosts

In the hallways of our home

And you ran with your hands on your eyes

Wake me up after midnight

With your atlas eyes

Your atlas eyes

And father cried

Hands tight on the wheel

Even heroes break

And walking with your backpack on

Into a white room where smoke filled your eyes

And the monsters came

Oh and I thought you were safe

But you thought you saw grandma

At the table

Well did she speak as well?

And I thought god would save us

Did we drink in hell?

Slim faced child

The memories slide

Against my mind

And laying on my bedroom floor, young

With your arms crossed to the ceilings

When the aliens came

Oh and I thought we were safe

Emma Louise Wish You Well

There she is

Perfectly framed by the woods she painted green

With the help of those hands of his

Oh, oh, oh

And there she dreams

Dreaming all the dreams that I used dream

Woah oh

Oh but prove yourself

No you could not moved on this well

Lie to me

Say that there’s some place we can meet

But if not

I wish you well

Oh, I wish you well

Oh, I wish you well

Oh, I wish you well

Oh, I wish you well

There he is

Playing in his band now just for kicks

And I shuffle my way up to the front row

Standing still

I can see him singing with his eyes closed

I hope you keep singing with your eyes closed

Woah oh

Oh but prove yourself

No you could not have moved on this well

Lie to me

Say that there’s still some place we can meet

But if not

I wish you well

Oh, I wish you well

Oh, I wish you well

Oh, I wish you well

Oh, I wish you well

Oh even though my heart is breaking

Oh even though my heart breaks

Oh, I wish you well

Emma Louise West End Kids

This is the suburb where we found love

There was chair where you wrapped your arms around me

So maybe you could walk me to my car

Kiss me down to my bones, we were gone from the start

Oh, oh, oh, oh

Walking these streets only makes me sad

Oh, oh, oh, oh

Gone and lost, the realest thing that I ever had

And it breaks my heart just to see us there

Hand in hand, standing on the corner in a hologram

And I reach but we disappear

All my loneliness is the only thing to find here

West End kids, always stay the same, always stay the same

West End kids, always stay the same, always stay the same

Always stay the same, always stay the same

We never did have much, living in a house of fire

Friends were in and out, you and I were getting high most of the time

But when our old house burned down

We all huddled in the blankets knowing everything was different now

Oh, oh, oh, oh

And seeing these places only brings back pain

Oh, oh, oh, oh

Gone and lost, the only thing that made me feel sane

And it breaks my heart just to see us there

Hand in hand, standing on the corner in a hologram

And I reach but we disappear

All my loneliness is the only thing to find here

West End kids, always stay the same, always stay the same

West End kids, always stay the same, always stay the same

We had it all, it all, it all

We had it all, it all, it all

Too much, too much of everything

We had it all, it all, it all

We had it all, it all, it all

We had it all, it all, it all

Too much, too much of everything

We had it all, it all, it all

And it breaks my heart just to see us there

Hand in hand, standing on the corner in a hologram

And I reach but we disappear

All my loneliness is the only thing to find here

West End kids, always stay the same, always stay the same

West End kids, always stay the same, always stay the same

West End kids, always stay the same, always stay the same

West End kids, always stay the same, always stay the same

Emma Louise Illuminate

At first I was the dark side of the blade

Stay inside and be still

Maybe they’ll think I’m still the same

And nobody will notice

If I break down, break down inside

I break down, break down

Shake me ’till I wake

I know I’m brave

I know I’m braver than this

Break this [?] I’ve made

I’ll illuminate, I’ll illuminate

Watch me, I’ll illuminate

I am one million colours in one

I am one, one in a million

I am one million colours in one

I am one, one in a million

Watch me I’ll illuminate

And have you ever held silence like a knife

To protect yourself from feeling something you know will burn inside

Oh, well I was on fire, on fire all the time

Now I’m just alive, alive

Watch me I’ll illuminate

I am one million colours in one

I am one, one in a million

I am one million colours in one

I am one, one in a million

Watch me I’ll illuminate

But I’m spinnin’ in slow motion

I am aluminous like this

I’m spinnin’ in slow motion

I am aluminous like this

I’m spinnin’ in slow motion

I am aluminous like this

I’m spinnin’ in slow motion

Watch me I’ll illuminate

I am one million colours in one

I am one, one in a million

I am one million colours in one

I am one, one in a million

I am one million colours in one

I am one, one in a million

I am one million colours in one

I am one in a million
