Emily Slumber sleeps through the haze
Of a long lonely June afternoon,
She doesn't number all of her days
Or the nights that she spends with the moon.
She is a wonder to all her friends,
The ones that say they're her friends.
Emily Slumber, Emily Slumber,
Emily Slumber, she sleeps away.

Emily Slumber drinks in the cool
Of the star laden dark of the sky,
Thoughts ripped asunder by the sound
That you hear in her sigh.
It is no blunder that she's alone,
She is painfully shy.
Emily Slumber, Emily Slumber,
Emily Slumber, she sleeps away.

She doesn't cry, she always smiles
At all the days in passing.
She doesn't try, try to explain
All of her ways fantastic, ways fantastic.

She doesn't cry, she always smiles
At all the days in passing.
She doesn't try, try to explain
All of her ways fantastic, ways fantastic.

Emily Slumber picks up the cup
That she's filled with the dust of her life.
She doesn't lumber, she dances around,
'Cause she feels she's amazingly light.
She isn't under any grey clouds,
She shines with the bright of the sun.
Emily Slumber, Emily Slumber,
Emily Slumber, she sleeps away.

Emily Slumber.
