Mine by Emmeline (the guitar version)

So...once upon a time, there was this girl. She wanted very, very badly to share a new song with you, but it turned out to be quite a bit of a struggle. She had to slay all kinds of dragons--chord flubbing, space complications, a computer's lack of memory, and more. But you know what? In the end, she persevered. And so did you, because you get bloopers! Here are the lyrics to "Mine," a song I wrote and recorded here in late 2010. "Mine" (c) 2010 Emmeline I think my face looks better with the lights off I think my hair looks better when it's down I think my troubled mind feels better when there's chaos left to weather And your stubborn stare's not here to freak me out I think I like the sunset better than the sunrise Somehow three AM is much kinder than noon I think I like this empty space and all the silence that it's made I think I like that I can't feel you in this room CHORUS And I'm not saying I don't get lonely And I'm not saying it's not hard to sleep at night But my pretty paper heart It got used to the dark Inside the tiny silver tin I've always kept it in And it might not seem like much to you But it's still mine I think I like you better when you're not here I think your love hurts less from far away I think I almost like your eyes when they're not skating down my side I like your lips when they're not begging me to stay CHORUS And I'm not saying I don't get lonely And I'm not saying it's not hard to sleep at night But my pretty paper heart It got used to the dark Inside the tiny silver tin I've always kept it in And it might not seem like much to you But it's still mine Don't run too fast; don't fall behind Don't seek me out; I'm hard to find Don't kiss me; let our lips collide Don't come inside I think you've gotten used to coming over I think your stuff looks better in my way And my bed gets cold sometimes, so I guess you can take a side But don't think this means I'm ever gonna change I might just rearrange CHORUS And I'm not saying we won't get lonely And you're not promising I'll always sleep at night And my pretty paper heart Might still favor the dark But it's your tiny silver tin I'm gonna place it in I've just got one request for you To let me still be mine I might seem cold, but I'll always be true If you let me still be mine

Best crowd EVER for audience participation. If you learn your part before I come to your town, I will love you forever and ever! :) "Shout" Emmeline (c) 2010 The words go kind of quickly, so here they are for reference: Put your lips to my ear Tell me what I wanna hear Let it linger, cross your fingers Close your eyes and just steer Take a left, then a right 'Til there's no stop sign in sight Push the accelerator; epinephrine sending you So high You're in flight And I'm paralyzed CHORUS Keep on flashing that smile It's so empty, twisted; no one can resist you Tonight, strap the charm on Wear your smirk just like it's armor It's fine; I'll just keep quiet Die a little every time you lie I know I won't have to shout (NO!) Oh, I know the truth will come out He said she said it's okay There's no infection to stave Plague is over; square your shoulders Just stop looking this way Questions are piling up Everyone's pushing their luck You're getting closer to exposure You can't hide from that sunlight It's so bright And I'm so tired CHORUS Double-sided bottom lines Should've written 'em down Turning tides, sneering smiles Nothing's real in this town Fill the box; cap it off Secrets lost can't be found Flip the top; pad the lock Don't you let that shit out CHORUS http://twitter.com/emmemusic http://www.reverbnation.com/emmeline http://www.facebook.com/emmelinemusic http://www.myspace.com/emmelinemilesmusic
