Velvet Chain – Emily lyrics

Words and music: J. Stacy

I had a dream I could leave you behind
Looking back over my cold shoulder
Little girl stepping down to the river
You call for me but I do not answer

In a daze I was walking away
Losing memories of love and laughter
I was fading into the darkness
It was me, but there was no likeness

Emily, emily...
Emily, emily... It was just a bad dream... Just a bad dream...

I had a dream I was going away
Looking back I could see you dreaming too
Sleep-walking down by the river
I called your name but you did not answer me...
And I did not answer you...
You did not answer meЎ­
And I did not answer you...
Emily, emily...

I woke up in the middle of the night
I took you in my arms and held you tightly
You were cold and shivering all over
I woke you up baby what's the matter...

You were trapped in a terrible dream
You were drowning in ice cold water
I was gone, I was far away
But you could hear me calling out your nameЎ­

Emily, emily, emily...
Emily, emily... It was just a bad dream... Just a bad dream...

You had a dream I was going away
Looking up you could see me dreaming too
Sleep-walking down by the river
You called my name but I did not answer you
And you did not answer me
I did not answer you
And you did not answer me...
Emily, emily...

Emily, emily, emilyЎ­Ў­
