I'd like to be up in a tree
Just to see you looking up at me
Now you came on in my life
I had the pleasure of those eyes
And your beauty, yeah, it stuns me
With those brown eyes my starry night

Oh, Emily, oh why'd I leave?
Oh why'd I leave? I just can't see
To be without you's too hard on me,
too hard on me as you can see
Oh, Emily, it's the lies
that needn't be, that needn't be
Thinking of you from yellow to blue
That just ain't me, that just ain't you

I came around just to see
How you had been without me
And it appears you'd been fine
Happy as can be, no time to cry
I begged you back, but why'd I leave?
Tear your poor heart, I just can't see
I asked you out, you ran on me
You had another man up in your tree

Oh, Emily, oh why'd I leave?
Oh why'd I leave? I just can't see
To be without you's too hard on me,
too hard on me as you can see
Oh, Emily, it's the lies
that needn't be, that needn't be
Thinking of you from yellow to blue
That just ain't me, that just ain't you
