lyrics

Cordelia only takes her clothes off when it's raining
And it's raining
Cordelia pours another drink so that she knows what she's saying
If you know what I'm saying

She'll say she never wants to break your heart
She'll say she never wants to break your heart

But she'll leave you a daffodil on your dresser
Cause she knows she's being cold
But she prays that you won't think less of her
She'll leave you a note upon your windowsill
That reads darling please forgive me, but this road I'm on
Just doesn't stand still

Cordelia wraps you up in fairytales and lost inhibitions
Lost inhibitions
Spins you round
Till she's got you tangled in her strange piece of fiction
What a strange piece of fiction

She'll say she never wants to break your heart
She'll say she never wants to break your heart

But she'll leave you a daffodil on your dresser
Cause she knows she's being cold
But she prays that you won't think less of her
She'll leave you a note upon your windowsill
That reads darling please forgive me, but this road I'm on
Just doesn't stand still

Morning comes and you're not awake
She'll be long gone down the fire escape
But you're far too lonely to admit your mistake
and I told you so

She'll leave you a daffodil on your dresser
Cause she knows she's being cold
But she prays that you won't think less of her
She'll leave you a note upon your windowsill
That reads darling please forgive me, but this road I'm on
Just doesn't stand still

Cordelia
One more sunrise finds her gone
Cordelia
I've been right here all along

Cordelia
One more sunrise finds her gone
Cordelia
I've been right here all along

about

Emily Anderson Fairbanks, Alaska

Like stumbling into a rose garden on a trek through the arctic, listeners of Emily’s music find themselves helplessly lifted into a world so hauntingly familiar, and yet so enchantingly curious. With a voice of untouchable purity and lyricism of remarkable wit and poignancy, Emily cradles matters of the human heart with an almost impossible sweetness. ... more
