Jolene by The Sisters Of Mercy

Chorus: Jolene jolene jolene jolene
I'm begging of you please don't take my man
Jolene jolene jolene jolene
Please don't take him just because you can
Your beauty is beyond compare with flaming locks of golden hair
With ivory skin and eyes of emerald green
Your smile is like a breath of spring your voice is soft like summer rain
And I cannot compete with you Jolene
He talks about you in his sleep
There's nothing I can do to keep
From crying when he calls your name Jolene
And I can easily understand
How you can easily take my man
But you don't know what he means to me jolene
Well you could have your choice of men
But I could never love again
He's the only one for me jolene
I have to have this talk with you
My happiness depends on you
Whatever you decide to do
chorus -etc
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
With her face like an angel
She could be anything
I'm gonna write your name high on the silver screen
I'm gonna make you the biggest star this world has everseen
At seventeen
We were wed
And I worked hard to earn our daily bread
And evrey day
Emma would go out searching for that play
That never, ever came her way
And sometimes she come home and she'd be so depressed
I'd hear her crying in the backroom and be so distressed
And I'd remember back when she was five
To the words that used to make Emmaline come alive
It was...
It was a cold and dark December night
When I opened up the bedroom door
To find her lying
Cold and still upon the bed
A love letter lying on the bedroom floor
IT read,
"Darling I love you
But I just can't keep living on dreams no more
I've tried so hard not to leave you alone
But I just can't keep trying no more"
