The rest of Emily’s story. Very touching.

(Read til the end to understand)

Emily’s home late again
he sees that boy drive away
oh but something different this time,
she doesn’t have too much to say
she said “he tried but
there’s just some things I won’t do”
and through the tears
she said “I couldn’t do that to you”
and he said

“I didn’t bring you up
so he could wear
you down,
take that innocent heart
and turn it inside out,
I live my whole damn life
to see my little girl’s smile
so don’t let nobody take that away,
you weren’t brought up that way”

The phone ring on a rainy night
says “it’s officer tate”
he said “sir there’s been an accident,
you better come down here right away,
a drunken driver missed an over pass,
and emily, she’s fading fast”
he says “god,I didn’t bring her up
to watch them lay her down
nearly killed me today,
they put her own
momma in the ground
only thing that kept me alive,
was that little girl’s smile
so please don’t take that away,
I won’t be easy taking her today,
she wasn’t brought up that way”

He stands over the hospital bed
Emily opens her eyes-TS

Dont worry, Emily didn’t die.

This is from the song “Brought up that way” and I never thought a song could make you feel so much as this song does.
