About Emery

Emery Adeline has spent her twenty-three years of life with firm roots in the Colorado soil giving her an affinity for exploring the natural world. Whether riding raging rapids with her brother, skiing steep slopes with her father, painting sprawling fields of wildflowers with her mother, or standing on the cliffs of Ireland with new friends, Emery has the ability to harness fresh air as a source of inspiration for her music.

Not only is her inspiration drawn from natural resources, it is also drawn from the depths of her personal life. Listening in to Emery’s music is the best way to get to know her and her soul. Her powerful and honest storytelling comes through without fear in every word she writes. Each song becomes a snapshot of a moment in time that enables the listener to exist in her world, if only for a little while.
Emery has been influenced by music across all genres but finds home among like-minded strong and independent women like Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves, and Lana Del Rey. Like these powerful female voices, Emery hopes to use her talent to drive and inspire the next generation of girls.

I Can’t Change You

Written by Emery Adeline

VS1.
Day dreams
Ripping at the seams
Like a ghost of me
Who I used to be

Long nights
tangled in your eyes
Woven In between
Your sighs

CHS.
I can’t change you
I can’t change you
I can’t change you
I don’t want to

VS2.
Move slow
Love so sweet
It’s like a fantasy
Fleeting

Take it fast
Won’t you take it back
Won’t you let it go ohhh

CHS.
I can’t change you
I can’t change you
I can’t change you
x2
I don’t want to
I don’t want to
I don’t want to
I don’t want to

Kitchen

Written by Emery Adeline

Vs. 1
So I’ll kiss them in the kitchen while you’re on my mind
and I’ll take a sip of whiskey and pretend everything’s alright
I’ll bite his lip and take a hit, say another line
I’m fine I’m fine

Vs. 2
I’ll throw up in the bathroom put my lipstick right back on
Buy a drink and start to think that maybe this is wrong
I’ll pretend I’m on the mend when I hear our song
But I’m wrong, I’m wrong

Chs.
I’m all out of control
I just can’t let you go
The look in his neon eyes
Gives me solace late at night
So I’ll fall in bed, and lose my head
‘Cause when I kiss him in the kitchen it still feels wrong

Vs. 3
I’ll trick him into loving me
Until I move along
Find a different hand to hold
Inspire some more songs
He’ll think he knows the way I go
Then suddenly I’m gone
Moving on, moving on

Brg.
And there’s days when I hate myself
More than I miss you
I’m falling through
What are these habits I can’t seem to lose
I always lose myself, I lost myself

If We Weren’t So Young

Written by Emery Adeline

Vs. 1
What we had magic
Right at our fingertips
We fell too far too fast
We knew it couldn’t last

And our love was all consuming
Knew that the moment you had me
In your hands
We didn’t stand a chance

Pre Chs.
Maybe if we were better
We could have made it work
Too young, too stupid
We couldn’t make it out

Chs.
Push it back a few more years
Give us a little more time to grow
You never know
What could have come
If we weren’t so young
Turn the pages of the book
Give us a little more time to look
At what we’ll become
If we weren’t so young

Vs. 2
You could feel it fading
And you pushed back so hard
I couldn’t keep it up
I was falling out of love

You tried so hard to fight me
holdin on to our day dreams
We were going up in smoke
something you couldn’t hold

Pre Chs. 2
Maybe if we were older
We could have made it last
Maybe I’d still love you
You wouldn’t be so lost

Chs.
Push it back a few more years
Give us a little more time to grow
You never know
What could have come
If we weren’t so young
Turn the pages of the book
Give us a little more time to look
At what we’ll become
If we weren’t so young

What we had magic
Right at our finger tips
We fell too far too fast
We knew it couldn’t last

Drink to You

Written by Emery Adeline

Vs. 1
I should be over you
I should have let you go
When you walked away
I shouldn’t want you here
Lying next me
On lonely nights
I shouldn’t feel this way
Trapped by your presence
In a drunken haze
Can’t escape all the years
Of wanting you

Chs.
So I’ll go out and I’ll drink up
Pretend the whiskey knows your name
And I’ll wake up in a different bed
And this hangover tastes like you
So I’ll drink to you

Vs. 2
I wake up
Leave traces of my makeup
on sheets that aren’t my own
and start the walk home
pretend I don’t feel numb
and I don’t want you
alone for just one night

Brg.
Cuz those pretty lies
I tell myself
Keep me hanging on
And those pretty lies
I tell myself
Won’t bring you back to me

Killin’ Time

Written by Emery Adeline

Vs. 1
There’s an emptiness that I fill with whiskey
Waiting for someone to miss me
I’m not lonely, I don’t need anyone
But sometimes I think it’d be kind of fun

Vs. 2
I’m not sad, but I’m not happy
Waiting for someone to tell me what that means
I’m not lonely, I got plenty of time
So I’ll waste my days while I’m killing time

Chs.
So pour another glass
Close your eyes and knock it back
Count the seconds that it burns
And yearn to feel some kind of hurt
It all feels just fine
It’s just wasting days and killing time

Vs. 3
I remember when I used to feel it
That hopeful thing when I was near him
But we get older and the truth comes clear
Time makes the heart grow numb my dear

Chs.
So pour another glass
Close your eyes and knock it back
Count the seconds that it burns
And yearn to feel some kind of hurt
It all feels just fine
It’s just wasting days and killing time

There’s an emptiness that I fill with Whiskey
I’m just waiting on someone to miss me

Temporary

Written by Emery Wilkins & Cici Ward

VS.
I’m up late most nights, anyways
Might as well come over tonight
When i’m alone, I’ve been feeling cold
And you’re always nice and warm

I like spending time knowing it won’t
Be a lifetime
I’m not, here to stay
Too long

CHS.
You’re hot coffee
In the morning
You wake me up until you’re cold
‘Cause I Don’t need you
Don’t have to have you, but
I like to know I can

VS.
Burning daylight just to see you
Just to be near you, feels right

I’ll never let you know,
Won’t tell you how I’m feeling
But for now I’m yours to hold

CHS 2
You’re my favorite band
Playing a live show
Soon the venue will close
‘Cause I Don’t need you
Don’t have to have you, but
I like to know I can

Instrumental Break

CHS 3.
You’re my favorite band
Playing a live show
Soon the venue will close
People change
Ice melts into lakes
Like you and me were temporary

His Song

Written by Emery Adeline

He smiles and it drives me crazy
And I want him, baby, right now

But he can’t see
How it’s only me
And I need him
I can’t see him with any girl but me

And he holds the key
To make me feel this way
After all these days
I promise I will never sway

And he can’t see
How he’s my world
And I will never leave him
Even when my heart stops beating

And he holds the key
To make me happier
Than any girl could ever be

Do do do do do

And I know that I’m just one girl
But when you’re around
I can’t see straight
I can only see your face

And I know that all those girls
They seem like pretty faces
Maybe chances
But would they write this song for you?

You keep my world turning
And my heart keeps burning
Now promise you will always say

That I, I’m your world
So I’ll be your girl and you can always have me

Do do do its only you
Do do do

And you’re, you’re my world
So I’ll be your girl and you can always have me

So Lucky

Written by Emery Adeline

I liked who I was
When you were there for me
You made me, so happy
I liked who you were
When you loved me
You were never mean, just happy

Every night
When I close my eyes
The memories flood into my mind
You’re perfect face
That time can’t erase
Haunting me when I try to sleep

Chorus

So how do we get back there?
Back to where we stood?
Back to when I was the only thing that you needed
Or how do I get there?
You’re so far away
Falling in love with someone else, it’s so hard to see
Baby you’re so lucky, you’re over me

Well, now you’ve found
someone from a dream
I’ll bet she’s beautiful,
everything you need
But baby I’m real
I won’t walk away
I’m right in front of you, asking to stay

Chorus

Baby you’re so lucky, you’re over me

Casually Fall In Love

Written by Emery Adeline

All of the sudden everything’s changed

But life has gotten in the way
And you give me feelings that
I’ve never felt before

We talk all day and then
Into the night like nothing’s changed
Your eyes they shine so bright
They’re bluer than the sky

Chorus
And I can’t stand to be alone
And you just got your heart broke
So baby just come back to Colorado
We’ll watch the sunset in the mountains high above
And then maybe we can casually fall in love

You can take me on cute dates
Just like the 50’s before everything changed
And I’ll let you hold my hand
If you promise to never let go

And it’s still summer,
we’ve still got time
To make things happen just right
Beneath the stars for the first time
I’ll let you take me there

Chorus

Everything’s always so serious
Let’s just try and take things slow
Maybe it could come so easily
Until we try then we’ll never know

Chorus

Emery Adeline Love Shot Eyes Album Cover

Don’t Let Me Fall

Written by Emery Adeline

You get under my skin
Even when I don’t want to
let you back in
You set my world on fire
But you don’t take me higher

And I’ve been around the world
I’m not an average girl
But you keep settling down
Keep throwing away my crown

Chorus

I don’t know what to do
I think that I love you
But you’re not good for me
Oh baby help me see
‘Cause I can feel the fire
I can feel the desire
So baby take me higher
But don’t let me fall

You put my nerves on end
So I put up all my defense
But your still holding back
Just let your feelings attack me

And I see right through you
And all the things you do
Well baby we’ve both changed
But some things stay the same

Chorus

Don’t let me fall
Don’t let me fall
Don’t let me fall
Don’t let me fall

Pain I’ve Gotten Used To

Written by Emery Adeline

I’ll try and make this simple
Because I want you to understand
That just because I’m still hurting
Doesn’t mean I won’t find love again

I think it’s time for me to move on
Because all the signs are telling me you’re gone

Chorus
So I’m letting go
I’m gonna let you out of me
I’m gonna be strong
I’m gonna make you see
That this addiction isn’t good for me
‘Cause darling you’re the pain I’ve just gotten used to

Well it’s still so scary
‘Cause I’ve been holding on too long
And this pain is my companion
We’ve been together so long, too long

All you’ve done is hurt me and let me down
But through my tears I can see, I can turn it around

Chorus

Because of you I’m afraid of love
Of letting go and of opening up
Because of you I wear a smile
Just to show you I’m fine when I’m not
Hoping maybe you’ll change your mind

So I’m letting go
I’m gonna let you out of me
I’m gonna be strong
Im gonna make you see
That this addiction isn’t good for me

Chorus

Baby, you’re the pain I’ve just gotten used to

Scars

Written by Emery Adeline

How is it the tables can turn so quickly
One second you’re right then your words come and hit you
And kick you when you’re down
Things are feeling wrong and we both know, there’s no easy way to go
Down this crazy road of words that we don’t mean

Chorus

Because boy, I know it doesn’t feel like I care
Like I’m always there
But you’re hurting me, don’t want to let you see
Because you’re, you’re all I ever feel like I need
You love me for being me
And I’m learning
How to let you win

What, what am I supposed to do
When I feel like I’ve lost you
And the words I say are so hard for you to take
Scars, we’re giving each other scars
And breaking each other’s hearts
But no ground is being gained

Chorus

And at the end of the day
After all we’ve been through
I still promise to
Always love you

Chorus

Goodbye Love

Written by Emery Adeline, Becca Krueger

You lift me up, just to tear me down
If I fall for you, I’m afraid I might drown
With you I’d be king of the world
But you’re too scared, to let me be your girl

Chorus
Here it comes here’s the tears
Here’s the wishing you were here
It’s not right, sleepless nights
And I’ve lost all the will to fight
Goodbye love, and hello to heartbreak

Despite all the pain that you’ve put me through
I’m still so dumb to care about you
You made me feel like never before
But our love has turned into a war

Chorus

I’m done missing you
I’m done fighting this war
‘Cause you don’t care anymore

Here it comes, here’s the tears
Heres the wishing you were here
It’s not right, sleepless nights
And I’ve lost all the will to fight

Chorus

Someday I’ll forget about you

Falling

Written by Emery Adeline

I’m falling, for him, but I know he’ll catch me
He holds me together when everything is falling
And somehow baby when the world says maybe I know you’ll be my shining star
I don’t need diamonds or rings or flyin’ machines, don’t need those flashy cars
‘Cause baby I got you and I know you’ll be true no matter how hard I fall……. For you

Your eyes are brighter, than any, I’ve ever seen
Your smile it makes me fall to pieces
And somehow baby you think im crazy but you still put up with me
And to my heart you know that nobody else holds the key, ya you’re all I see……

And somehow baby when the world
says maybe I know you’ll be my shining star
I don’t need diamonds or rings or flyin’ machines, don’t need those flashy cars
‘Cause baby I got you and I know you’ll be true no matter how hard I fall……. For you

I tripped into your arms and now I’m gone
Falling into the brightest unknown
The way you feel, makes me real

I’m still falling for you

And somehow baby when the world says maybe I know you’ll be my shining star
I don’t need diamonds or rings or flyin’ machines, don’t need those flashy cars
‘Cause baby I got you and I know you’ll be true no matter how hard I fall……. For you

Let You

Written by Emery Adeline

On the surface it may seem
Like I’m living the fairy tale dream
Perfect home, perfect life
But you don’t know what’s inside

And where no one’s been the walls are paper thin
One blow from caving in
And unfortunately
Mediocracy, will just not work for me
And it looks like you are taking control of me
And finally breaking down everything
While I stay, just out of reach
And I’m keeping my heart inside a bell jar that I try and hide
But you, are pushing through
And I am starting to, let you

I’m enclosed within my walls
And I’m praying that they won’t fall
But you stand below and somehow I know
That I’m not getting out of this alone

Because it looks like you’re the beauty and I’m the beast
Because I can’t even let myself free
From all of my insecurities
And I do not want you to see
This madness that’s enclosed in me
And my fear of letting it free
But I am starting to, let you

Let you in
Let you know
This is how it feels to let go
Let down my guard
‘Cause I’m tired, tired of being alone
So show me how, to let you

And it looks like you are taking control of me
And finally breaking down everything
While I stay, just out of reach
And I’m keeping my heart inside a bell jar that I try and hide
But you, are pushing through
And I am starting to, let you

Queen of my Throne

Written by Emery Adeline

I’m the ice, she’s the fire
She’s the one who holds his desire
Home I sit, sad at what cost
Confused by change, broken with loss
You’re the sun I’m the rain
I’m the one who ruined our parade
She’ll come in and save the day
She will wipe the rain away
Chorus

He’s the one I hate to love
He’s the one I’m still dreaming of
He’ll come in and save her day
Wipe away the clouds, make her stars shine the same
I’m alone, ya I’m all alone
Gone is my crown ’cause he gave her my throne

Dear boy, here is my pain
I wrote you a sad song because you’re making me insane
You were music in the morning
waking me from dreams
Stars in the evening singing me to sleep

After all the boys who chase me, and buy me nice things
your simplicity in a necklace or you speaking my name
baby come home, my arms are open wide
baby come home, please stop the tears I cry

Chorus x2

All I want ya all I need
Is to still be the one that comes from his dreams

Don’t Mind

Written by Emery Adeline

Oh your words aren’t about me anymore
Ever since I walked out that door
You don’t sing for me anymore
And I can really feel that
And I don’t write for you anymore
I really haven’t thought about you at all
But I still sing those songs about you
And it all comes back
Chorus 1

Because maybe you’re a memory
But I don’t think that’s alright with me
And those eyes still make me fall
But you don’t mind at all

All those nights where you held me so tight
Your parents would doubt if we were right
We were too serious for them
And too young for the world

Do those girls you walk around with give you more?
Do you take it? Or do you feel torn?
Or do you ever still think about me
That first love we shared?

Chorus 2

Because maybe I’m a memory
But I don’t think that’s alright with me
And those eyes still make me fall
But you don’t mind at all

‘Cause if we tried again
Would it really mend
The broken and the tears
Would you take my hand
And help me understand
Why you were gone

Chorus 1

No you don’t mind at all.

Love Shot Eyes

Written by Emery Adeline, Garrett Blackwell, Shawn Palmer, Jack Talan

I wake up to a red sunrise
The whiskey still blurring the lines
With thoughts of you running through my head
No comfort left from the night
I know you’re bad for me
A woman I just can’t trust
But I could never leave you
Even If I must

‘Cause I’m looking at you with love shot eyes
I hear your voice through the tears I cry
And it seems so hard to say goodbye
‘Cause I’m looking at you with love shot eyes

My friends they don’t like you
I know the reason why
Baby it’s that charm that makes me
Forget all your lies

I keep coming back
You’ve got me hypnotized
Well darling I love you
But please get out of my life

‘Cause I’m looking at you through love shot eyes
I see your face in the tears I cry
It’s impossible to say goodbye
‘Cause I’m looking at you through love shot eyes

Why do I need you to keep me sane
When all of my problems are under our name
To you I promise to keep my faith
Look at me, see the truth in my face

‘Cause I’m looking at you through love shot eyes
Baby please come back into my life
I need you here don’t say goodbye
I’ll always see you through love shot eyes

I’m looking at you through love shot eyes
Baby please come back into my life
