The Lyrics

Made this song after seeing lots of emo kids around college. My boyfriend gave me the inspiration.
(cry emo, cry! x 4)
Where has all my hairspray gone
and where are my tight jeans?
wheres my lovely studded belt
so i can show my arse for free
Moshing to some sad song
and smoking lots of weed
late at night i huff and i puff
and i dream of what i need

I need an Emo
Im holding out for an emo that gets all depressed
he'll slit all his wrists
and have chemical twists
and then he'll try to take his own life
i need an emo
im holding out for an emo that gets all depressed
he'll slit all his wrists
and have chemical twists
and then try to take his own life
take his own life
(cry, emo cry)

Somewhere in my nightmares
in my dark and scary scene
somewhere where im all alone
theres someone who is from my dreams
he holds my cold hands
and wipes away a tear
he says "Oh fuck im so upset
and i dont know why im here!"

I need an emo
im holding out for an emo that gets all depressed
he'll slit all his wrists
and have chemical twists
and then try to take his own life
i need an emo
im holding out for an emo that gets all depressed
he'll slit all his wrists
and have chemical twists
and then try to take his own life
take his own life

(Cry, emo cry)

From in the corner of my favourite bar
i look around me and i see
there is someone standing, stalking me
Through the beer goggles and all the smoke
through the darkness and dope
i can feel his approach like a flame on a tab

(like a flame on a tab, like a flame on a tab, like a flame on a tab, like a flame on a taaaaaaaaaaaaaaab, taaaaaaaaaaaaab)

I need an emo
im holding out for an emo that getts all depressed
he'll slit all his wrists
and have chemical twists
and then he'll try to take his own life.
i actually sang this parody on a karaoke and i had the whole bar laughing.

Some fine writing here....I would have written "he'll slit both his wrists" and put some variety into the chorus, but that's just me being picky -- this is good!

There is no one to come, from saving you starve. Turn out the light and cry in the dark. Emo kid go home, your life makes no sense. Make others happy and put your life to the end.
