Emily lived in this town
Seems it was getting her down
Filled up a suitcase with clothes
Where she went no-one knows
She didn't wait to explain
She had to rush for her 'plane
She's seen the earth from the sky
And she waved it bye-bye
Bye-bye love...

Oh to be like emily
Out of sight and really free
Follow your heart she says
Follow the stars she says
She's the girl we'd love to be
Oh to be like emily

Emily lives on her nerves
Stealing the gold she deserves
Sparkling a thousand fires bright
Like the red sky at night
Headful of crazy ideas
Heartful of rhyme no-one hears
It's up to her to decide
Whether she'll seek or hide
