Ben Folds – Emaline lyrics
I wish it was last September
Where we could lose ourselves in crowds every day
'Cause Emaline, she'll walk in time
She's not the same that's all you can say
But when I've heard enough, I tell myself
That we've learned our lesson but I
Don't wanna walk away from Emaline

They're talking now
Does she know what they're saying?
She's got the air, to float above it
I'm sinking into someone should pay.
She's dear to me, and so expensive
I'm not talking 'bout money,
But money talks, I hate to listen
But lately it's been screaming in my ear
And when I've heard enough I tell myself
That we've learned our lesson but I
Don't wanna walk away from Emaline

It only took me one look to understand Emaline
Sometimes I don't know what she's saying
Sometimes I do,
Sometimes I don't know what she's saying
But I know, I know
I know what she wants to believe

I wish it was last September...

Don't let me walk away from Emaline!
For stupid reasons
Now I'm talking 'bout money
Money talks, I hate to listen
But lately it's been screaming in my ear
Want advice? Girls need attention.
Or are you different from all mine?
For all it's worth, she's got attention
From people like you see black and white
I've heard enough, I tell myself
I really shouldn't sit here and whine
I'll take you down to see my Emaline.
