Emerald

“Emerald” Scratch Acoustic Demo 2007

This song was written sometime in 2007 or 2008. It is basically about wanting what you don’t have, and being jealous of others who have what you want, and the frustration you feel because of that. Why do things come so easily for others who don’t really deserve it , but so hard for people who work really hard? It’s just life, so I wrote this song to vent that frustration. A lot of the analogies I used in this song were inspired by The Wizard of Oz and Snow White, and many other fairy tales that have that element of “lesson learned”.  I’m pretty sure that is apparent.

Your sea is green with envy
On the inside your kid is spoiled
Rotten, like an apple that’s gone bad

Welcome to the city of fortune
The gates are golden and open wide
Your horse of different colors
And your minions
Have arrived

We all want what we can’t have
We all shatter at the thought of sinking
In the deep green sea of luxury
Baby your face is green with envy
And your so damn Emerald to me

Another win I gain
Sums up the total of your losses babe
Don’t try to take it all away
Don’t try to take it all away

We all want what we can’t have
We all shatter at the thought of sinking
In the deep green sea of luxury
Baby your face is green with envy
And your so damn Emerald to me

me, me , baby
Reality don’t that easy
hey , hey
You’re living in a fantasy

We all want what we can’t have
We all shatter at the thought of sinking
In the deep green sea of luxury
Baby your face is green with envy
And your so damn Emerald to me
