I had no intention of writing this song; Emily Made Me

An original song; one that makes me wish I knew an instrument, because it feels really good.

Rest assured, I really didn't want to
But she made
listen to her songs
Rest assured, I really didn't mean to
But she made
start to sing along

I had no need to
buy the same CDs
she's always playing them
and they're not free
What I used to like
I can't remember
Forgot the words to
Collective Soul's "December"

Maybe I'm lame and
maybe she's right
maybe she saved my
music soul tonight
But all I know is
Emily made me

Rest assured, I never really planned it
But she made me
sing "Dammit! Janet!"
Rest assured, it wasn't my part
But she made me
her own special sweetheart

I never used to think
Top 40 was crap
Occasionally I'd listen to
a little bit of rap
But she changed that
Oh, how she'd harp
She'd always say, "Nat,
You really need to Look Sharp!"

Now I'm in an emo band
And she's still my biggest fan
It's all her fault
Emily made me

Really good.
