"Emmylou" as written by and James Keogh....
Oh if you’re losing sleep…
Oh if you’re losing sleep, scared of shadows.
See it’s just a chair, see the clothes hang there.
Oh don’t go losing sleep, scared of shadows.

Oh don’t feel bad.
Well I never have, since I got you, my Emmylou.

You wear your socks to bed, wear your socks to bed.
That’s what I do.
Oh c’mon sleepyhead, get yourself to bed.
Don’t go losin', oh, the nighttime.

Oh, don’t feel bad.
Well, I never have, since I got you, my Emmylou.

You are loved, you are loved, you are loved.
You are loved, you are loved, you are loved.
You are loved, you are loved, you are loved.
You are loved, you are loved, you are loved.

Oh now, don’t feel bad.
Well I never have.
Now that I’ve got you, my Emmylou.
No don’t feel bad.
Well I never have, now that I’ve got you, my Emmylou.

    General CommentI think he's talking to his little daughter. He's telling her that's it's ok to be scared, that he's there now. He tells her over and over how much he loves her and how much she means to him. She wears her socks to bed just like he does, and he notices that and it makes him love her even more, to see how they are the same.

    General CommentI feel like he is telling the woman he loves that she doesn't need to be scared of anything because he is there and he will love and protect her!:) And also that he doesn't feel scared since he's had her, so she shouldn't be scared either!
