Madison Violet Emily Lyrics

oh you left me holding flowers
on my way with steady hand
salty water morning hours
oh these eyes had other plans
and the schools they fled the seas
when they heard my crying out
i'm ready as I'd ever be
i'm ready like the autumn falling leaves

oh emily
i feel your breath upon the shore
oh emily
it's the calm before the storm

oh you left me no good reason
but hard guessing holds the hour
long for easy summer evenings
trains to jersey
whiskey sour
and the birds they fled the skies
when they heard me crying out
i'm ready as I'd ever be
i'm ready like the kite in April breeze

oh emily
you got that look back in your eye
oh emily
it's a race against the tide
oh the ants they fled the hills
when they heard me crying out

oh emily
i got pockets full of shells
oh emily
and a hard luck song to tell
oh emily
i wish i wish you well
