Jackie Greene – Emily's In Heaven lyrics

I was half asleep when I heard the news, sad words on the phone
I just couldn't believe my ears, I couldn't believe she's gone
I tried to make some sense of it, but sense I could not make
How a girl like her could go like that it must be some mistake

Well I'd known her since forever, or as far back as I go
She always had an answer for the things I didn't know
She never hurt anybody, never did them wrong
She walked to the tune of life teaching everyone the song

Now Emily's in Heaven, and I'm awake in bed
Sometimes how I wish, the Good Lord took me instead
But I guess the good die young and life just isn't fair
But Emily's in Heaven she'll be waiting for me there

Eleven different doctors and not one had a clue
They rushed her to emergency but there was nothing they could do
They said she had a weak heart, she'd always been that way
I said she just gave too much of it away

Now Emily's in Heaven, and I'm awake in bed
Sometimes how I wish, the Good Lord took me instead
But I guess the good die young and life just isn't fair
But Emily's in Heaven she'll be waiting for me there

We laid her down for peaceful sleep, time was standing still
Everybody said a prayer on top of moonlight hill
I said goodbye with a rose how she loved them so
Then I turned away, tried not to cry and did my best to go
