Everybody knows your voice it cracks
Everybody knows you can't go back
Everybody says what matters more than that
When it started
I was waiting to be discovered
So half-hearted
They were way across the room

And it could have been me
and the Emilys
It could have been me
and the Emilys

Everybody wants their secret place
Everybody wants to reach first base
Everybody's scanning for that distant face
When it started
They were waiting to be uncovered
So halfhearted
I was way across the room


There will be other chances
(More cross-the-classroom glances)
The world's mostly boundless
(The world's mostly boundless)


And it could have been me Watch what I say, watch what I do
but for my enemies The world’s mostly boundless
It could have been me The days cannot be counted
and the Emilys
