Emma (Hot Chocolate Cover)

We were together since we were five

She was so pretty

Emma was a star in everyone's eyes.

And when she said she'd be a movie queen

nobody laughed

Her face like an angel

She could be anything.

Emily Emma Emily

I'm gonna write your name high on that silver screen

Emily Emma Emily

I'm gonna make you the biggest star this world has ever seen

At seventeen we were wed

And I worked day and night to earn our daily bread.

And every day

Emma would go out searching for that play

That never ever came her way.

You know

Sometimes she'd come home so depressed

I'd hear her crying in the back room

Feel so distressed

And I'd remember back

When she was five

To the words that used to make Emily come alive

Emily Emma Emily

I'm gonna write your name high on that silver screen

Emily Emma Emily

I'm gonna make you the biggest star this world has ever seen

It was a cold and dark December night

When I opened up the bedroom door

To find her lying still and cold upon the bed

A love letter lying on the bedroom floor

It read:

Darling, I love you

But I just can't keep on living on dreams no more

I tried so very hard not to leave you alone

I just can't keep on tryin' no more

Oh Emily - Emma - oh Emily
