Emma (Hot Chocolate Cover) Lyrics

Emma (Hot Chocolate Cover) by The Sisters Of Mercy  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Emma (Hot Chocolate Cover) 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.

You know
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

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

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 - Emma - oh Emily
