Helen Reddy - Emotion Lyrics




Lonely women are the desperate kind
And I am hanging at the end of a line
Losing hope when the call doesn't come
It's a feeling I choose over feeling none

Ah, then you stumble in
And I am tumblin' back where it begins

'Cause you can spread my wings
And send a thousand dreams
To flood a million streams with emotion

And you can fill my nights
Oh, and blow out all my lights
'Til I see nothing right by emotion
My emotion

I'm running out of ways of makin' you care
As hard as I try you know it just isn't fair
For all I give, I'm only getting old
When I think I'm finally back in control

Ah, then you stumble in
And I am tumblin' back where it begins

'Cause you can spread my wings
And send a thousand dreams
To flood a million streams with emotion

And you can fill my nights
Oh, and blow out all my lights
'Til I see nothing right by emotion

And you can spread my wings
And send a thousand dreams
And flood a million streams with emotion

And you can fill my nights
Oh, and blow out all my lights
'Til I see nothing right by emotion

    " EMOTION "
    THE HEAVENLY BEE GEES WRITE THIS SONG...
    AND THE IMPORTANT MISS HELEN REDDY SINGS FREELY TO THE WORLD...
    MAGICAL MOMENTS TO REMEMBER 💖🌹

    glebeboi

    Actually, it was Texas singer/songwriter Patti Dahlstrom who put this English wording to the French song Amoureuse not the Bee Gee's.

    demir span

    @glebeboi THE CONCLUSION MY FRIEND IS: NO MATTER WHAT SINGER SINGS THIS SONG IN ANY LANGUAGE IN THE PAST OR THE FUTURE...
    THAT ESSENTIAL SONG "AMOUREUSE" BELONGS TO THE LEGENDARY VÉRONIQUE SANSON !!!
    MADAME VÉRONIQUE SANSON 💖🌹
    EVERY TIME I HEAR HER LIVE IN THE OLYMPIA OR ZÉNITH THEATER IN PARIS IS EXTRAORDINARY UNIQUE!!!
    ALL HER DIAMOND CATALOGUE OF SONGS IS UNIQUE !!!
    HAVE A NICE EVENING 💖🌹

  15. Loretta Hennings

    Excellent Song ♥🎶🎼🎤🎻♥

    david ewing

    I love this song. It has everything I am honored to have heard this song and i understand it

    It moves your soul. Men have emotions also. Maybe we hide it better, but they are their. I have been lonely and lost before. Maybe that is why I like this song so much. It tells me of my inter self.

  16. Debra L

    I have never heard this version. I LOVE IT!!! Finally see the side of her I always knew existed but stations and broadcast couldn't put it out there for whatever reasons. yeah whatever.

    fairybits

    That reads a a negative subtle comment towards HER. Chuckles. Believe everything you hear eh>?

    Dave Fairhurst

    When i hear this song it always takes me back to Bavaria when my friend and I got stuck in the snow in a little sports car, I could hear it playing inside the car as i was helping push it out of the snow hahaha great memories!

  17. ray ward

    kiki dee...amorouse...and this exactly same melody ..which came out first

    garyalee

    Amoureuse was first- a French song- translated into English it became this song - Emotion...

    Christopher Todd Durnil

    Actually, Kiki Dee's and Olivia Newton-John's versions were literal translation of Veronique Sanson's French version from 1972. The translation was written by future Elton John collaborator Gary Osborne in 1973. Olivia's & Kiki's versions appeared virtually at the same time in early 1974.

    The Helen Reddy version, with NEW lyrics by singer-songwriter Patti Dahlstrom, was released in 1975, a year later. Dahlstrom also recorded the song.

  18. Larry Zamparelli

    Great voice.  She is in my top 10.  She should make some appearance.  I miss her.

  19. nwlman

    Love Helen Reddy easily in the top 5 female vocalists whose music I listen to
    Streisand
    Reddy
    Newton John
    Agnetha from ABBA the blonde
    Parton

    scottbradyporter

    I love it...nwlman. I could not agree more!

  20. JR in the 818

    Also her name is Helen Reddy, not Ruddy. Please correct this. Thanks and have a good one.

  21. David Mauricio

    Frozen seem to have the same beginning. I do like Helen Ready, she made the way for so many other female artist. I just remember her music when I was a kid.

  22. C. Middleton

    The verse she sings which begins; "The room is filled with only emptiness" from which album does this come? Thanks so much for posting; I miss her performances, but have heard she may be back.

  23. hugo enrique marchi

    Excelent song...

  24. Engineerium

    My pleasure. Merci de télécharger cet enregistrement. J'aime la musique de Helen Reddy - elle était (et est) un grand talent :)

  25. Engineerium

    The corrected lyrics are as follows:
    Lonely Women are the desperate kind ~ And I am hanging at the end of a line ~ Losing hope when the call doesn't come ~ It's a feeling I choose over feeling numb ~~ Oh, then you stumble in ~ And I am tumbling back where it begins ~ Cause you can spread my wings ~ And send a thousand dreams ~ To flood a million streams with emotion ~ And you can fill my nights ~ Oh, and blow out all my lights ~ Till I see nothing but my emotions ~ My emotions.

    fairybits

    Correction. It's a feeling i choose over feeling none.:)

    DM Hark

    Helen acknowledged the history of the song in concert in 1975, mentioning that Kiki Dee recorded the first English version. Two of the best singers ever in my opinion.

    FurtherReview

    @fairybits You are correct: It's "none," not "numb." Also, the lyrics to the rarely heard third verse are:
    The room is filled with only emptiness
    And I am sitting here with even less
    Nothing doing when there's nothing to do
    And when I've decided we're finally through ...

  26. Engineerium

    After about five separate attempts (each time using a different technique) I officially GIVE UP trying to get line-breaks to work as you'd expect them to when displaying text in these comment fields! Thanks a million 'YouTube' for making this an unnecessarily frustrating experience.

  27. Engineerium

    A beautiful track with a (as per usual) flawless delivery by Helen Reddy. Unfortunately, some of the lyrics you've provided are incorrect.

    I've pasted some of the corrected lines in a comment below, - because I think the composer of these lyrics did such an awesome job :)
