Paul Simon – For Emily lyrics
What I dream I had, dressed in organdy
Clothed in crinoline, of smoky Burgundy
Softer than the rain


I wandered empty streets, down past the shop displays
I heard cathedral bells, tripping down the alley ways
As I walked on

And when you ran to me your cheeks flushed with the night
We walked on frosted fields of juniper and lamplight
I held your hand


And when I awoke and felt you warm and near
I kissed your honey hair with my grateful tears
Oh I love you, girl

Oh, I love you
