Emma's House
The Field Mice Lyrics


Early morning by the harbour
the clouds above form one sheet that's grey
Early morning by the harbour
Where you are
Where you now are
You have nothing to live up to
You have nothing to live down
Emma's house is empty
so why do I call it Emma's house?
Five to six that's what the time is
the cold cuts through my shirt of cotton made
Five to six that's what the time is
Where you are
Where you now are
You have nothing to live up to
You have nothing to live down
Emma's house is empty
so why do I call it Emma's house?

Where you are
Where you now are
You have nothing to live up to
You have nothing to live down
Emma's house is empty
so why do I call it Emma's house?

If you struggle with depression and some kind of mood disorder, this genre really touches the spot.

Le Radici Degli Alberi

you are right

Crush Thy Flowers

I will always love them and Sarah Records in general. Such pure, naive and beautiful music. Sarah Records were the "living" proof that you don't need a lot to make lovely music.

My first daughter is named Emma, my second, Sarah ... I tried Shinkhansen for the third, but that failed miserably ... the mom did not like that ...

There is a childrens book called "Emma's House" about a girl whose best friend Emma moves away. Perhaps this, like the Cure's song "Charlotte Sometimes" is a tribute to a good book

Nibby the Bird

Regardless, it’s nice knowing that Emma and Charlotte are sisters in the book, since I think of this and Charlotte Sometimes as sister songs :)

@Aritul The same person who wrote Charlotte sometimes wroteva weird book about Emma where she turned into a bird..or maybe she chose not to, I forget. But I think Emma's House was by her too. I only read Judy Blume's older YA books

Emma's House or Iggie's House by Judy Blume?
