Emaline - Ben Folds Five

now, I wish it was
last September
we could lose ourselves in crowds everyday
'cause Emaline
don't walk in time
she's not the same that's all you can say
when I've heard enough,
I tell myself
that we've learnt our lesson, but I
don't wanna walk away from Emaline
they're talking now
does she know what they're saying?
she's got the air
to float above it
I'm sinking in the "someone should pay"
she's dear to me
and so expensive
now I'm not talking 'bout money
when money talks,
I hate to listen
but lately it's been screaming in my ear
and when I've heard enough, I tell myself
that we've learnt our lesson, but I
don't wanna walk away from Emaline

it only took me one look to understand Emaline
sometimes I don't
know what she's saying
sometimes I do
sometimes I don't know what she's
saying
but I know, I know
I know what she wants to believe

I wish it was
last September

don't let me walk away from Emaline
for stupid reasons
now I'm talking 'bout money
when money talks,
I hate to listen,
but lately it's been screaming in my ear

yeah, what advice!
girls need attention
or are you different than all mine?
for all it's worth,
she's got attention
from people like you who see black and white
I've heard enough,
I'll tell you what
really shouldn't sit here and whine
I'll take you down to see my Emaline

I wish it was...
