"Surviving Emily" as written by and Douglas/warren/warren/mcintosh....
Beyond the cost of diesel fuel
And the tearing down of my old high school
I still think about her
The nation's rising deficit

And my fatal crave for cigarettes
They all make me think about her
My life's one big catastrophe
So don't expect too much from me

I'm just hanging on
Surviving Emily
My T-shirt that she always wore
Her makeup in the bathroom drawer

I can't get away from her
Her perfume on my pillow case
When I close my eyes, I always see her face
Sometimes I wish I were blind

My life's one big catastrophe
So don't expect too much from me
I'm just hanging on
Surviving Emily

Oh Emily can you hear me
I'm callin' out your name
Rescue me from these lonely days
And sleepless nights

They're driving me insane
I tried to stop this endless search
Even started going back to church
But I still feel the same

And my friends all say I'm doing fine
It's just gonna take a little time
Oh yeah nothing's changed
My life's one big catastrophe

So don't expect too much from me
I'm just hanging on
Surviving
Just hanging on

Surviving
I'm barely hanging on
Surviving Emily
Yeah...
