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;
A face like an angel, she could be anything.

Emmaline.
Emma, Emmaline...
I'm gonna write your name high on that silver screen
Emmaline.
Emma, Emmaline
I'm gonna make you the biggest star this world has ever seen.

At seventeen, we were wed;
I'd work 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, she was so distressed.
And I'd remember back to when she was five...
To the words that used to make Emmaline come alive.
It was...

Emmaline.
Emma, Emmaline...
I'm gonna write your name high on that silver screen
Emmaline.
Emma, Emmaline
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 trying no more."

Emmaline!!!
Ah, Emmaline!!
