Emily, sing something sweet for me
I want to feel the warmth inside your heart

Emily, sing something sweet for me
I need to hear those words out of your mouth

Emily, sing something please
I want to taste the life behind your eyes

Emily, sing something
Something
Something
Sweet

    General Commentdon't get mad, it wasn't funny.

    i like this song especially forits eerie feel, i has the effect of crawling beneath the surface and penetrating. when he sings about behind her eyes, it's as though he plans on going back there himself... so rad.

    General Commentwow, i can't believe that NO ONE mentioned how this song relates to death. maybe its because a good friend of mine just passed away, but i believe that this song is about that feeling about looking at a body inside an open casket and just wanting so badly to hear them say something...or in this case, maybe emily was a girl who used to sing? and he just desperately wants to hear her sing again. (which is why he basically screams the song.) i think that this song describes that feeling so perfectly.

    General Commentwell.. my name too! hehe.. but he sounds really angsty in this song.. perhaps thats the idea.. yet i can't help but be a little bit bothered by this one song's vocals. i love his lyrics though.. they are beautiful.

    General Commenttylenol, what a weird thought. But if it is true, they should leave him alone or just appreciate his ability. He is great, and the name should not be what makes you like it, it should be the emotion and meaning.
