Marissa Nadler - Dead City Emily Lyrics


Marissa Nadler – Dead City Emily Lyrics

I was coming apart those days
I don’t give a damn about the way
Colors on the trees change from red to green
It’s a dead city, Emily
But it was a blaze, still, I had to stay
With that band, Emily

I saw the light today
Opened up the door
And the other man would run, run away
And we’re stuck inside the moon
Any other man would’ve run, run away
Emily, he’s something more

I was coming apart those days
I don’t give a damn about the way
Birds fly in the breeze, things you say to me
It’s a dead city, Emily
I cannot recall leaving, we said all
It’s a dead city in between

I saw the light today
Opened up the door
And the other man would run, run away
And we’re stuck inside the wall
Oh, it looked so bright today
Opened up the door
Any other man would’ve run, run away
Emily, he’s something more

And the other man would run, run away
From the house and to the shore

Dead city, Emily
Dead city, Emily
Dead city, Emily
Dead city, Emily
