Emily I’ve been thinking lately about what you want me to say
But my tongue is heavy my knees are weak and we’ve got some time and space

See I’ve got these hopes and I've got these dreams
I know you don’t believe me but I want you to see that
I’m doing this for you and me

I know it seems selfish but I swear its not
I’ve got a next to nothing chance to make it top the top but
I’m taking it for you and me

I fall asleep to the stereo at night
Singing songs about my life
And you’re the only one who cares to sing along

You fall asleep to the stereo at night
It’s my voice that tucks you in tight
And you’re the only one who cares to see me through

Emily I’ve been thinking lately about this music thing
How it consumes me it eats me up and it leaves you waiting

See I’ve got these hopes and I’ve got these dreams
But I would break this guitar if it came between us can’t you see
I’m doing this for you and me

When the money’s right and the cards are stacked
We will hit the next phase and we’ll never look back and you’ll agree
I’m doing this for you and me

Everything inside of me aches
To know that your mine but our hearts have to wait
And everything inside of you aches
To know that I’m your but our hearts have to wait

    Song MeaningIt's about love over music.

    I believe this song is about possibly the singer and Emily. They're far apart because he is pursuing his music career. She doesn't believe in his dreams about a music career, but he continues anyways in hopes of making his future better.

    She is the only one to listen and care so much about him. She is also waiting far away for him and it's killing him.

    If he had to choose between his music career and her, he will choose her because he wants to be with her.

    It hurts hurts both of them because they have to wait to love each other due to their distance.
