Autumn, Emilie - From The Gutter To The Stars Lyrics




[Emily:]
Lying in the gutter
Looking at the stars
Listening to her breathing
As she passes through these rusty bars
Free as any bird with wings as wide
I'm free when I am with her

Dancing down the hallway
Laughing at her chains
Others fade away, yet somehow she remains
Strong as any storm, and just as wild
I'm strong when I'm with her

Yes, I know they could separate us
This is true
They don't even hate us
It's just what they do
But, if only in my dreams, I will follow you
From the gutter to the stars

I will wash your stockings
Lace your corset tight
Waiting in the wings

[Veronica:]
No! On the stage with me

[Emily:]
Alright

[Veronica:]
When the curtain closes

[Emily:]
I'll be there

[Veronica:]
You won't go nowhere?

[Emily:]
I'm home when I am with you

With the slightest touch
I'm in Trafalgar Square
Swinging 'round the lamp posts

[Veronica:]
Breathing in clean air

[Emily:]
Will they understand us?

[Veronica:]
Just be brave

[Emily:]
I'm brave when I am with you

Yes, I know they could separate us
This is true
They don't even hate us
It's just what they do
But, if only in my dreams, I will follow you
From the gutter to the stars

[Veronica:]
What is that over there?

[Emily:]
It's a trap...

[Veronica:]
It's a stage!
What is this in my hand?

[Emily:]
It's a scrap...

[Veronica:]
It's a page from a playbill
With both of our names

[Emily:]
Side by side?

[Veronica:]
As it should be!

[Emily:]
It could be?

[Veronica:]
My darling, just look!

[Emily:]
It's a carpeted floor
It's a dressing room door
It's a crowd wanting more!

[Emily & Veronica:]
I can see it now!

[Emily:]
Yes, I know they could separate us

[Veronica:]
They could separate us

[Emily:]
This is true

[Veronica:]
This is true

[Emily:]
They don't even hate us

[Veronica:]
They don't even hate us

[Emily:]
It's just what they do

[Veronica:]
It's just what they do

[Emily & Veronica:]
But, if only in my dreams, I will follow you

[Emily:]
From the gutter to the stars

[Veronica:]
Let me show you what living is!

[Emily & Veronica:]
They could separate us
This is true
They don't even hate us
It's just what they do
But, if only in my dreams, I will follow you

[Emily:]
From the gutter to...

[Veronica:]
From the gutter to...

[Emily & Veronica:]
The stars...
The stars...
