Emma Lyrics

Artist: Hot Chocolate

Hot Chocolate

From the CD "20 Hottest Hits"

We were together since we were five
She was so pretty
Emma was a star in everyone's eyes
And when she said she'd be a movie queen
Nobody laughed
A face like an angel
She could be anything

Emma, Emmaline
I'm gonna write your name high on that silver screen
Emma, Emmaline
I'm gonna make you the biggest star this world has ever seen

At seventeen we were wed
I'd work day and night
To earn our daily bread
And every day Emma would go out
Searching for that play
That never, ever came her way
You know sometimes she'd come home
So depressed
I'd hear her crying in the back room
Feel so distressed
And I'd remember back when she was five
To the words that used to make
Emmaline come alive
It was :
Emma, Emmaline,
I'm gonna write your name high on that silver screen.
Emma, Emmaline
I'm gonna make you the biggest star this world has ever seen."

It was a cold and dark December night
When I opened up the bedroom door
To find her lying still and cold
Upon the bed
A love letter lying on the bedroom floor
It read :
"Darling I love you,
But I just can't keep on living on dreams no more.
I tried so very hard not to leave you alone.
I just can't keep on trying no more."

Emmaline ...
Aaargh, Emmaline ...
Aaargh ...
Emma, Emmaline ...
Aaargh ...
Emma, Emmaline ...

It came out when I was in 10th grade. I didn't fully realize how GREAT it was at first, but now I regard it as one of the all time great songs.

In the late seventies I was a scool boy and we heard this song every saturday night at the disco. Katrin was my favourite girl but I was too cravenly to ask her for a dance to this song. Today we both are married, happy and staying in the middle of our lifes, but not together. Sometimes I hear this song and remembering Katrin. She have for ever an secret place in my heart.

My neice gave birth to a little girl yesterday and has decided to call her Emmeline. I just had to look up the song again. Not heard it in years. Still a great song.

by Icke on 5/28/2014 3:40pm
What a great song.
But very das lyrics.
And I love the coverversion from The Sisters Of Mercy.

A pure classic of all times. Danced to it during the seventies. We named our first born after this record.
Erroll Brown will be truly missed and remembered for his talent with Hot Chocolate. RIP Errol
by maxwell leeks on 5/13/2015 12:54am
named our 1st daughter after this song, one of the best songs ever and certainly one of the best singers ever to record, saw him a couple of times in southend UK, the last time he performed before he retired, was hoping and looking that he would make one last comeback somewhere in the world as we would certainly have been there with him ( fantastic performer ) alas this will now never happen RIP.

Brilliantly written song.
A very much darker, but very impressive version by Sisters of Mercy.
by Mental Dental on 12/6/2016 2:40am
Have only just heard the Hot Chocolate version but do prefer the sisters of mercy version (sorry erroll). Do dark, moving and really feel deep for the guy.
