  1. World of Her Own

From the recording CONVERSATIONS WITH EMILY

Lyrics

“World of Her Own”

She was fond of saying “what’s the point of it all”
So I was always praying pride would soften the fall
But every time the tumble came I tried to claim it wasn’t so
A hopeless Romeo, she’d laugh, I’d take her photograph

She lives in a world of her own
The rules for you and I they don’t apply
Unlike anyone that you’ve known
Mysteriously coy but still, we all bend to her will

Looking for an answer I lost myself in a dream
The last romantic dancer taking one for the team
Bewildered by the smile she hid I never did connect the dots
So in the end her thoughts, would soar, as if unspoken for

She lives in a world of her own
The rules for you and I they don’t apply
Unlike anyone that you’ve known
Conditionally kind but still, we all bend to her will

Somewhere in the back of my mind I hear, “enjoy it while you can”
I should just accept the way she is
Cause beauty tends to do as it pleases
But past a certain point you’re so drawn in
It’s positively Circean

The last thing I remember was feeling terribly old
The former top contender all alone in the cold
Confronting life without the chase I had to face my fatal flaw
The perfect au revoir, she’d sigh, both hello and good-bye

She lives in a world of her own
The rules for you and I they don’t apply
Unlike anyone that you’ve known
Predictably aloof but still, we all bend to her will
She lives in a world of her own
She lives in a world of her own
She lives in a world of her own
