Performances (18)

Woke up to find I lost my mind 
Lost heart, lost nerve, I lost my favorite word, Emily 
I take my cigarettes, I give 'em a smoke 
Oh god, my heart feels froze 
I've lost something it seems 
I've misplaced my favorite thing, Emily

Where does love go if it cannot find a home 
One moment here then gone with no forwarding address 
Love no longer has a house or residence in flesh

I take the keys, I get in the car 
To out run this, man, I'd have to go real far 
Where mercy wears lace and bottles are thieves 
Which of these took you from me, Emily? 
I face myself but there's a draft inside 
Parts of me drowned in perpetual tide 
I want to call names, I want to throw things around 
But no bar can buy forgiveness, another round for Emily

Where does love go if it cannot find a home 
One moment here then gone with no forwarding address 
Love no longer has a house or residence in flesh

I go in the bedroom, turn on the light 
It's like an empty altar, no angel in sight 
Religion with no temple, no place to take my worship to 
No God for my eyes to see, nor fruit to lay at the feet of Emily.

Gone 
Gone
