Emily

Written By: Corley Roberts

Emily
© 2012 Corley Roberts

She looks forward to her visits with Emily
She tidy’s up her room for afternoon tea
Flowers on the window sill she draws the curtains back
Emily likes it like that
She doesn’t know, she doesn’t know
That Emily’s not real
It’s no doubt, it’s no imagination
How Emily makes her feel

CHORUS
Emily makes her laugh Emily makes her smile
Emily’s the best friend she’s had in a while
She gets up every morning
Looks forward to her days
She’s as happy as she’s ever been
Emily is no ordinary friend

She’s got a picture of her family in an old wooden frame
She’s always glad to see them but she doesn’t know their names
They bring her favorite candy and a box of tea
Just enough for her and Emily
They know, they know
That Emily’s not real
Faces and places have faded away
But Emily never will.

CHORUS
Emily makes her laugh Emily makes her smile
Emily’s the best friend she’s had in a while
She gets up every morning
Looks forward to her days
She’s as happy as she’s ever been
Emily is no ordinary friend

Melt Like That

Melt Like That
Corley Roberts c 2012

I’m sitting in this theater
She takes the screen and I live through her
Loving vicariously
She glows when she looks at him
She melts when he takes her hand
And I watch, as if it were me
Wishing it were me

CHORUS
I want to glow like that
I want to melt like that
I want my feet to leave the ground just like her
I know the lines by heart
I can play this part
I’ve seen this show a hundred times before
I want to fall head over heels in love at last
I want to melt like that

I love it when the phone rings and then
you know it’s him
Cause she giggles like a little girl
The love song plays she marries him
The credits roll the movie ends
It feels so real
I want to be that girl

CHORUS
I want to glow like that
I want to melt like that
I want my feet to leave the ground just like her
I know the lines by heart
I can play this part
I’ve seen this show a hundred times before
I want to fall head over heels in love at last
I want to melt like that

BRIDGE
I had almost
I came close
But that’s just not enough for me

CHORUS
