Song For Emily

A few miles south of Memphis
On a road that we’d been traveling quite some time
He said "Emily came to me, her simple smile
just crossed my mind"
 
"It seems like yesterday
And a million miles away
But I still hear her
Laughing in the breeze
And then giving me a squeeze
To pull me nearer "
 
Now I know
You have to find a way
to live with regret
Remembering
All the times and things
we wish we could forget
 
As autumn leaves start falling
Emily comes calling
me to follow
And running down this road
My heart starts to unload
till I feel hollow
 
Emily
I keep asking myself, “Why?
Oh, Emily
We never even said goodbye
 
I don’t know what else to do
On a road in Mississippi
Missing you
