Sleepy Emily




Somebody told me I should look and see
All of the apples falling off the tree
But I don't care about the things I see
I wanna be the man I am


I wouldn't go to a lonely priest
Don't wanna sing like a bird released
I gotta heart that belongs to a beast
I wanna be the man I am

Ch/
Sleepy Emily
I wanna warn you about me
Sleepy Emily
I wanna warn you about me


How many times must you make me say
I wanna be getting on my way
You wanna crucify somebody today
I wanna be the man I am


(So) come here and take me as I am
Stop putting roses in a can
You wanna think that I give a damn
I wanna be the man I am

Ch/

Break/
I'm growing up I'll send you flowers
If you want I'll send you more
You better let me in I'm knocking at your door
