"Emotion" as written by Robin Hugh Gibb and Barry Alan Gibb....
It's over and done but the heartache lives on inside
And who's the one you're clinging to instead of me tonight?
And where are you now, now that I need you?
Tears on my pillow wherever you go
I'll cry me a river that leads to your ocean
You never see me fall apart

In the words of a broken heart
It's just emotion that's taken me over
Tied up in sorrow, lost in my soul
But if you don't come back
Come home to me, darling
You know that there'll be nobody left in this world to hold me tight
Nobody left in this world to kiss goodnight
Goodnight
Goodnight

I'm there at your side, I'm part of all the things you are
And you've got a part of someone else
You've got to find your shining star
And where are you now, now that I need you?
Tears on my pillow wherever you go
I'll cry me a river that leads to your ocean
You never see me fall apart

In the words of a broken heart
It's just emotion that's taken me over
Tied up in sorrow, lost in my soul
But if you don't come back
Come home to me, darling
You know that there'll be nobody left in this world to hold me tight
Nobody left in this world to kiss goodnight
Goodnight

In the words of a broken heart
It's just emotion that's taken me over
Tied up in sorrow, lost in my soul
And if you don't come back
Come home to me, darling
You know that there'll be nobody left in this world to hold me tight
Nobody left in this world to kiss goodnight

It's just emotion that's taken me over
Tied up in sorrow, lost in my soul
And if you don't come back
Come home to me, darling
You know that there'll be nobody left in this world to hold me tight

    General CommentThis song is the epitome of what a person feels after they've either lost someone that meant a lot to them or had their relationship end. It is emotion...but it's also a lot more. These lyrics define all of that perfectly. It is a strong, deep song...but I love it.
