Emaline

This song is by Ben Folds Five and appears on the album Naked Baby Photos (1998) and on the album Ben Folds Live (2002) by Ben Folds.

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 learned 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.
Money talks,
I hate to listen,
But lately it's been screaming in my ear.
When I've heard enough, I tell myself
That we've learned our lesson, but I,
Don't wanna walk away from Emaline.

It only took me one look to understand Emaline,
sometime 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

Now, 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
Now 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
