Emmeline

lyrics

When I think of love and autumn
It's your face I see, my Emmeline
What could have been the reason
I left our unspoken love behind

You'd place your hands upon my weary head and I'd rest, I'd rest
You'd place your cheek against my anxious face and I'd rest, I'd rest

How fast did all the years go
I never meant to stay away so long
Those simpler time forgotten 'til I close my eyes
And see Emmeline

You'd place your hands upon my weary head and I'd rest, I'd rest
You'd place your cheek against my anxious face and I'd rest, I'd rest

I got the call on Wednesday and that evening took the next flight home
There you lay in the stillness, and I cried big tears
For Emmeline

I placed my hands upon your weary head and you rest, you rest
I place my cheek against your peaceful face and you rest, you rest
