Oh, Emmanuel

Verse:

Emmanuel was friend of mine
and a little bit more from time to time.
But love like that, you best forget.
Now he's got a wife and a couple of kids.
He's got a house in the San Francisco hills.
And I'm still stuck in regret.

Oh, Emmanuel,
Let's not kid ourselves.

Chorus:
I knew right from the start
There's no way in hell
I knew deep in my heart
This is never gonna end well

But it's the nights like these
I need Emmanuel

Verse:
Now lately, it has occurred to me
That I never once loved that man faithfully
But I never once thought
that he'd just get up and leave

And as selfish as I am about to sound
I still have to admit I never hit the ground.
I never thought he could ever love someone
The way he loved me.

And so, Emmanuel,
I kid myself.

Chorus:
'cause I knew right from the start
There's no way in hell
I knew deep in my heart
This is never gonna end well

But it's the nights like these
I need Emmanuel

Outro:
Sweet Sorrow
Loverman's gone now.
Sweet sorrow Emmanuel.
