James Arthur – Emily Lyrics

James Arthur Emily Lyrics, Emily Lyrics by James Arthur

Dear Emily
I really wanna write this carefully
Know that we’re a family
It’s only you, your mom and me
Dear Emily
We’re gonna live forever happily
I’m gonna ask your mum to marry me
But there’s some things you need to know

Poppa was a rolling stone playing in a sold out show, yeah
Taking all the highs and lows, been living with an empty soul, yeah
And if you ever read the things they wrote, I hope that you can let them go
I was living in a different world before I had my little girl, yeah

Emily
When I hear you cry I’ll sing you back to sleep
Do you know you inspire all my melodies?
‘Cause you make me a better man than I’ll ever be, ever be, ever be
Because of you, Emily

Dear Emily
I saw you way before you came to me
‘Cause I picked out your name and wrote it on paper
I needed life and life came and gave me Emily
Will I be good enough for you?
The truth is I’m afraid of everyone and anything that could hurt you

Oh, Emily
If you ever feel lonely, just sit next to me
Since we brought you home with us you’re everything
‘Cause you make me a better man than I’ll ever be, ever be, ever be
Because of you, Emily, yeah

Oh, you’re all I’ll ever need, baby
You’re all I’ll ever need, oh no, no no, no

When I’m looking at your tiny feet
I feel your heartbeat here inside of me
I feel a love that I just can’t believe

Oh, Emily
When I hear you cry I’ll sing you back to sleep
Oh, do you know you inspire all my melodies?
‘Cause you make me a better man than I’ll ever be, ever be, ever be
Because of you, Emily

Oh, Emily
If you ever feel lonely, just sit next to me
Oh, since we brought you home with us you’re everything, you’re everything
‘Cause you make me a better man than I’ll ever be, ever be, ever be
Because of you, Emily
