Emilou:

Emilou, Emilou
How do you do the things you do every night
In the mood, and on the loose
And you’re searching for a truth that you can’t find
You’re easy on the eyes, and it’s everyone’s belief
That you are just as sweet as cherry pie
You’re rollin’ and ‘a’ tumblin’
Just enough to make a scene
Emilou, I hope you find your way

So peel your face from the bottle
And come up to catch a breath
From the feast and the famine
The rapture of your pride and your flesh
All the boys on the block got their eyes on the clock
Huntin’ down a reason to stay
And their lookin’ for you, sweet Emilou
What a shame

Emilou, Emilou
Have you been workin’ on your moves all your life?
Time was cruel to your youth
Now your desperate for a moment paid in kind
Your momma couldn’t reach you
Though we know how hard she tried
And you and daddy don’t see eye to eye
You’re rollin’ and a tumbling
It’s enough to make a scene
Emilou, I hope you find your way

So peel your face from the bottle
And come up to catch a breath
From the feast and the famine
The rapture of your pride and your flesh
All the girls on the block got their eyes on the clock
Feelin out the reasons for one more drink
And they look up to you, sweet Emilou
What a shame

So when the lights come on
You gotta stumble home
Emilou, girl you should take your time
Cause it ain’t that far
From your favorite bar
Emilou, everything will be fine

And it those heels could talk
About the miles they walk
If you could wipe those tears, open up your eyes
Just enough to count your bruises, babe
Emilou, my sweet Emilou

So peel your face from the bottle
And come up to catch a breath
From the feast and the famine
The rapture of your pride and your flesh
All the boys on the block got their eyes on the clock
Huntin’ down a reason to stay
And their lookin’ for you, sweet Emilou
What a shame
