Hot Chocolate - Emma
Tekst en muziek: Errol Brown en Tony Wilson
(1974)






We were together since we were five
She was so pretty
Emma was a star in ev’ryone’s eyes
And when she said, she’d be a movie queen
Nobody laughed
Her face like an angel
She could be anything



Emily
Emma, Emily
I’m gonna write your name high on that silver screen
Emily
Emma, Emily
I’m gonna make you the biggest star this world has ever seen



At seventeen we were wed
And worked day and night to earn our daily bread
And ev’ry day
Emma would go out searching for that play
That never ever came her way



You know
Sometimes she’d come home so depressed
I’d hear her crying in the back room, feel so distressed
And I’d remember back, when she was five
To the words that used to make Emily come alive
It was:



Emily
Emma, Emily
I’m gonna write your name high on that silver screen
Emily
Emma, Emily
I’m gonna make you the biggest star this world has ever seen



It was a cold and dark December night
When I opened the, the bedroom door
To find her lying still and cold upon the bed
A love letter lying on the bedroom floor



It read:
Darling, I love you, but I just can’t keep on living on dreams no more
I tried so very hard not to leave you alone, I just can’t keep on tryin’ no more



Emily
Oh, Emily
Oh, Emily
Emma, Emily
Emily
