Emery – The Beginning lyrics
[Verse 1]
Don't go
I've been walking through these woods
Shivering in these new clothes
And I
I wanted to see
The world through eyes
But they were never meant for me

It was placed just right
To catch the eyes; we waited completely naked
But never underestimate the lie, that kind
That breaks it, the whole life that you tasted

[Verse 2]
I thought I heard her say
I don't want to go
But the words hurt more than I thought through
And nothing leaves you quite as cold
As my father's back turned on me
When you take someone down the garden path
You take someone for all they have

[Verse 3]
And death
Was only a word
But to a jealous heart that has made its plans
It was the soil that gave it birth
And the sun its light there on me
Shone through the clouds and upon my feet
To the ground that we chose as a door to leave


{​​​​​Unclean}​​​​​ Die through the one man, through the one man how many, how many died?! x2
[?] [?] [?] [?] gift of righteousness shall reign in light by the one Man!

I was so in love. I was just so young and so in love
How could I say no to the hand that was built for me
I saw it so clear, like the first day you laughed or said my name
I couldn't say no, but we both know, we both know
We would have been changed like the days of our lives
(The illusion was ours, it was joy it was rapture)
Oh this place is a hell with its death and goodbyes
(In this world that's to come, it's only the fear)
And you can't stop yourself when you're dreaming of days
(Was there ever a moment, just a moment the truth could touch our lips)
But these pieces will fade until there's only this place
(Would it have mattered, the harvest will come)

If I would have chosen another, it would have meant I loved him more than you
