Special Patrol - Changing Emily lyrics

They've been asking
You've been doing lately
Where have you been?

So you were standing all alone on the corner in your coat
I only ever took you with some soap
The jacket keeps you warm but you're still cold
I know there's no point in changing Emily
Finally found you washed up in your boat
Streams and tears and bruises round your throat
No longer self-assured and overboard
The blinkers never fitted quite right
Emily

Chorus: They've been asking
You've been doing lately
Where have you been?

So I know you think
You've seen everything they sent us here to see
Hate to see you lose hope for meaning
There's a line to tread without getting too deep
There's a lot of water to tread in the open sea
You'll find we lose our way so we can find it back
When we return we return to a clearer path
Lessons in the soil that's on the track
You know that we'd always love to have you back

Chorus: They've been asking
You've been doing lately
Where have you been?
Where are you hiding?

So come with me
Always try to keep your head held high
Treat the ones you love like you might die
It might be the last day you're alive
There are no second chances round here
And you'll see skeletons in the closet where they hang
Ghosts that walk your hallways in their gangs
The clowns that laughed at you when you first sang
No longer hold no relevance around here

Chorus: They've been asking
You've been doing lately
Where have you been
Where are you hiding?

So much promise
Thrown upon us this year
I need you here
Emily
