emily tells me
she's not mad, she's only sad
she is a statue of the dreams her family had
and she thinks she needs me
so at night i watch her dream
and we defeat me
after all it's only me

she sits alone up on the roof
talking to her plastic boyfriend ghost
and when she dreams she always dreams of us
but who's the one who's always hurting her
it's me

and emily tells me
not to say that i'm sorry
she even believes me when i'm telling my stories
and she thinks she needs me
but i can't make her sing
and we defeat me
even though i'm as blind as she

she walks the beach under the moon
and i lend the grass to sing my tune
she treats me as if i was a silver spoon
but who's the one who's always hurting her
it's me
