Emery – Story About A Man With A Bad Heart lyrics

Watch your makeup,
There's just a smudge beneath the eye.
You look great in that dress,
It hits every curve just right.
We've got dinner at eight, and then drinks by nine.
I love you so, it's our anniversary tonight.

Suddenly everything shakes as if it's starting to break.
And now I'm on my knees,
My wife screams, "What's Wrong! ?"
As the stereo plays our song, Only In Dreams.

Just last Friday is when my heart failed again.
I was thinking that I should find a friend.
I bought her several drinks,
And slipped the ring into my hand.
We drove to her place
And let the good times roll again.

Suddenly everything shakes as my protection breaks.
And now I'm on my knees,
And I scream, "This was wrong!"
As I leave, the stereo plays the song, The Finishing.

Is this it? Is this how I've spent my life?
Lying there with a broken heart on bedroom floors.
And finally, finally, I realize,
I realize that I'm only a man.

One thing I have to know, where did the miracles go?
And if a simple man believes,
Will it start again with me?

I'm watching this screen,
These lies played out before my eyes, and how they know everything.
Everything come easy, well I never had it easy,
I was never lucky, it was never easy.
And you sit there and you judge my commitment.
You people could say that I'm the bad guy,
Because I was weak, I was weak once or twice.
Well let me tell you;
I'm standing in the need, I am standing in the need,
Because I can't control this person behind my hands.
