This summer we did work on our new album, so some of the things we've thrown in here, ah--the one Robert sang earlier, called Prince Charming, is a new song.

This one's called Emilia Bright.


hey, something is new
it got into me
and I hope that it got into you
the way my covers are made
trumpets will play
and I hope that it's inside,
I hope that it got into you

there's no doubt
here lies Emilia Bright
in a red 50's dress
from a thrift shop nearby
I laid on the ground
and stared at the sky
with Emilia Bright

there's clothes
that hide them away
there's me spread
all over the floor
and I'm lost in one place,
I'm stuck, and I'm straight,
and I hope that you feel the same way

there's no doubt
here lies Emilia Bright
in a red 50's dress
from a thrift shop nearby
I laid on the grass
and stared at the sky
with Emilia Bright

there's no doubt,
there's nothing to work out
you're alone,
'cause you're always on your own
when you yawn,
it makes me want to yawn, too

plain, expressionless view
it got into you,
with a necklace, no shoes,
the promise of truth,
and a life to be bright and new

there's no doubt
here lies Emilia Bright
over the bars of
the graveyard at night
I laid on the grass
and stared at the sky
with Emilia Bright,
with Emilia Bright,
with Emilia Bright

    General CommentNot released, and probably won't be due to BFF's breakup. A live version is floating around P2P programs, though.

    General CommentMy name is Emilia, so I think this song is The Best. I suppose since it's not released on anything no one knows for sure whether it's Emilia or Amelia, but it sounds like he says it my way. Anyway, I don't think this song makes as much sense as his songs usually do, but I think it's just about the beginning of a relationship and the way it feels. I think. . . . It's now my goal in life to find a red 50's dress.
