Lyrics

Emily


The firelight is dancing in the eyes of a girl
As she moves to the music I sing
I reach for her shadow as she dances and twirls
She?s always just out of my reach

Emily, dance with me
Before the fire is gone
Emily dance with me
Girl don?t you leave me alone
Emily


She likes to sing lines from the movies she?s seen
She?ll pounce like a cat if you know what I mean
Eyes like a dove, but she?s quick on the draw
Close your eyes and she?s gone

Emily, dance with me
Before the fire is gone
Emily, dance with me
Girl don?t you leave me alone

Emily, dance with me
Before the fire is gone
Emily, hold me close
Girl don?t you leave me alone
Emily

Maybe she only exists in my dreams
Maybe I?m crazy tonight
But down by the River Road Ice House
I?ll build me a fire and wait beneath the moonlight
For Emily to dance with me
