"Emotion" as written by Robin Hugh Gibb and Barry Alan Gibb....
It's over and done
But the heartache lives on inside
And who's the one you're clinging to
Instead of me tonight?

And where are you now, now that I need you?
Tears on my pillow wherever you go(GO)
Cry me a river that leads to your ocean
You never see me fall apart

In the words of a broken heart
It's just emotion taken me over
Caught up in sorrow, lost in my soul
But if you don't come back

Come home to me, darling
Don't you know there's nobody left in this world
To hold me tight
Don't you know there's nobody left in this world kiss goodnight
Goodnight, goodnight,goodnight

I'm there at your side,
I'm part of all the things you are
But you've got a part of someone else
You've gotta go find your shining star

And where are you now, now that I need you?
Tears on my pillow wherever you are
Cry me a river that leads to your ocean
You never see me fall apart

In the words of a broken heart
It's just emotion taken me over
Caught up in sorrow, lost in my soul
But if you don't come back
Come home to me, darling

Don't you know there's nobody left in this world
To hold me tight
Nobody left in this world to kiss goodnight
Goodnight, goodnight

And where are you now, now that I need you?
Tears on my pillow wherever you go
I'll cry me a river that leads to your ocean
You never see me fall apart

In the words of a broken heart
It's just emotion taken me over
Caught up in sorrow, lost in my soul
But if you don't come back

Come home to me, darling
Nobody left in this world
To hold me tight
Nobody left in this world to kiss goodnight

Nobody to kiss me
Goodnight, goodnight

    General Commenti agree with tigress...it´s about a realationship with no future...for me it gives me the thoughts that there is noone left in this world for me to love ("don´t you know there´s nobody left in this world to hold me thight, nobody left to kiss godnight" from the lyrics..)...that i never gonna find the right girl..my soulmate...But i hope i do some day =( i think she is somewhere out there waiting for me! =)

    General CommentAfter a break up, or a general agreement which refers the relationship be over and done with.. she's saying that how that she needs, him.. he's not around. Once things get rough, he runs away. Although bad things have happened, she was always there for him.. always willing to work things through. And still now, even though there's no reason for him to still love him.. she does. She still loves him, and believes that no one will be able to replace him.. although she knows it'll never happen, she continues to hope that he might appreciate what he's lost and come back.. and at the same time, is still trying to cope and accept that it's really over.
