"Emily" as written by and Jaret Ray Reddick....
It wasn't supposed to be like this
Another dose of unhappiness
I gave it all and managed to get shot down yet again
So I got drunk
Had sex with all your friends
You told me to never call your house again

[Chorus]
Emily, you saved the day
Emily, when you threw me away

She was always such a pretty girl
Nobody like her in the world
A little piece of heavenly
That no one else could stand
I see her in my dreams at night
I see you when I close my eyes
I just can't seem to shake you, Emily

You got your money and I got cast
Outside thrown out on my ass
In the city with no one else, no where else to go
So I hooked up with this model from Singapore
Emily, I sure am glad you didn't want me anymore

[Chorus]

She was always such a pretty girl
Nobody like her in the world
A little piece of heavenly
That no one else could stand
I see her in my dreams at night
I see you when I close my eyes
I just can't seem to shake you, Emily
Yeah

Emily, you saved the day
Emily, you saved the day
Emily, you saved my ass

    General Commentemily dumped him, and he was devastated, bu he pretends to have moved on, and claims he's really glad she broke up with him.

    but he's still obsessed with her.

    General Commenti think BFS' music and lyrics are both great and they are definately a band to see live. head over to BFSRocks.com and kamikazeshots.com to join the boards there and talk to other BFS fans (there are alot of us now)
