Emmalene (Hot Chocolate cover by Peter Devine)
From album Virtual World available at all music steaming sites
Video featuring Marilyn Monroe

We were together since we were five
She was so pretty – a star in everyone’s eyes
And when she said she’d be a movie queen – Nobody laughed
A face like an angel – She could be anything

Emmaline, Emma, Emmaline
I’m gonna write your name high on that silver screen
Emmaline, Emma, Emmaline
I’m gonna make you the biggest star this world has ever seen

At seventeen we were wed
I’d work day and night To earn our daily bread
And every day Emma would go out Searching for that play
That never, ever came her way

You know sometimes she’d come home so depressed
I’d hear her crying in the back room – so distressed
And I’d remember back when she was five
To the words that used to make Emmaline come alive

It was :
“Emmaline, Emma, Emmaline,
I’m gonna write your name high on that silver screen.
Emmaline, Emma, Emmaline
I’m gonna make you the biggest star this world has ever seen.”

It was a cold and dark December night
When I opened up the bedroom door
To find her lying still and cold upon the bed
A letter lying on the bedroom floor

It read :
“Darling I love you,
But I just can’t keep on living on dreams no more.
I tried so very hard not to leave you alone.
I just can’t keep on trying no more.”

Emmaline …
