Lyrics

Tom:
Emily, The crowd has gathered here
but it is not because of you.
Emily, the taste of blood in their mouths,
I can’t imagine what they’ll do.
But it doesn’t matter what they’ll do to me.
Emily, have they forgotten you
when they set their sights on me?
They will hang me from the rope tonight
Will you be waiting there for me?
Will our souls remember where we said we’d meet
on the way out of this town?
I’m leaving one way or the other, Emily.
There’s nothing left here for me now.
Emily, it’s so quiet now.
It’s like the calm before a storm.
They will punish me for what he did to you
But either way it’s all my fault,
'Cause I made the man who laid his hands on you.
And I would tear him down, but I feel like a dead man
and what can a dead man do?
Emily: This is not your fault
Tom: I’m leaving one way or the other, Emily.
Emily: This is not your fault
Tom: There’s nothing left here for me now.
Here comes the blow.
We find the only man who loved her…
We find the only man who’d give his life
to see her once again… We find this man
Emily: Not Guilty!
Tom: Guilty… I am Guilty.
