lyrics

Emily hangs her head from me
Carrying anger in her heart
She knows how cruel most men can be
I should have known this from the start
Since every girl has a tale
Of men and our selfish ways

If you wanted
I could make the move
That is, if you really want me to
It’s not all that simple
When I know what you know
Just don’t walk out on me

The past trickles slowly from her eyes
And yet to me this is no surprise
Every girl I have known has felt the cold touch
Of a man who wants more than he’s owed
I’m sorry for what he did
Whoever he may be

If you wanted
I could make the move
That is, if you really want me to
It’s not all that simple
When I know what you know

You see, all I ask
Is for you to understand
I’m not that man
You know I’ll try

I will make the move
That is, if you really want me to
It’s not all that simple
When I know what you know
Just don’t walk out on me, Emily
