"Conversations With Emily" as written by and Gabriel James Looker Justin Valenti....
Hey pretty, what's on your mind
Nothing here, an endless night
I'm fed up and sick, tired of me
My thin boy voice ruins everything
Oh sweetheart, don't say such things
We don't know who's listening
Don't talk, don't smile
Just silently walk on by

My Emily says "Oh ladd
What has she done
To my darling innocent boy,
My favorite late night someone"
I wish you were here to kiss me
And scream "Damnit ladd I need you back"
Emily rolls over in bed and says
"It is really so bad?"

Hey pretty are you secretly sad?
Questions I dare not ask
I'm fed up and sick, tired of this
Such simple things I miss
Oh sweetheart don't say such things
We don't know who's listening
The only thing that can fill this gap
Is the one who doesn't want me back

My Emily says "Oh ladd
How long can this last"
As long as it takes to get that attention
So safe at last
I wish you were here to hold me
And scream "Damnit ladd I need you back"
Emily rolls over in bed and says
"You don't want that"

So here's my advice to you
This should've turned out different
But it didn't, so get over it
But don't you find it reassuring
That one consolation growing
My darling boy, it won't snow where she is going.

    General Commentmy god you cant listen to this song without feeling empty. im totally caught up in it. i think the convorsations with emily are about the heartbreak for another girl. emily giving him words of comfort.

    "My Emily says
    'Oh Ladd what has she done,
    To my darling, innocent boy,
    My favourite late night someone"

    im in awe

    General CommentI think in he song Ladd was with a girl who treated him badly all the while Emily truly loved and cared about him and shes trying to make him feel better.

    General CommentIt nearly parallels a relationship with a good friend of mine.

    If you were to call her emily, you'd have to ignore that we've never been together, but shes a care-giver nonetheless, and i can hear her repeating some of the same reassuring things emily says

    The line that hit me most, was when i REALLY listened to the end, it sent chills up my spine

    But don't you find it reassuring
    That one consolation growing
    My darling boy,
    It won't snow, where she is going.

    General CommentI don't understand the part where he says "It won't snow where she's going" What's that supposed to mean?

    General Comment"It won't snow where she's going" is a reference to hell. Where it doesn't snow, and where bitches who break Ladd's heart go. Haha, that's my favorite line in the song.

    General CommentNo, antennas, I don't think that what it's saying.

    I think Emily was this girl who loved Ladd unconditionally, and he never really saw it. She always reassured him and said things to make him feel better, and when this other girl broke up with him, she wasn't any diffrent.
