"Tonight your faith in magic faded...but you held your ground like a stubborn little girl."
I feel the pull all the time to become cynical and jaded. So much of my inner work is constant weeding, weeding, weeding so noxious thoughts don't have a place to take root.  I wrote this song to celebrate my commitment to the innocent little girl in me who wears a tiara because she knows she's an empress, and who takes counsel from a rainbow unicorn.

And who stubbornly believes in magic, even when there's no evidence of it anywhere on the horizon. 

With Love, Emily



My Emily

Music and Lyrics by Emily Potter

Capo 3, Verse: D G D A Bridge: Bm G D


My Emily

You’re never bored

Gypsy troubadour

On your flying unicorn


Ribbons down your hair

You dance and don’t care if they stare

Wild and soft and rare and free

My Emily


Tonight your faith in magic faded

With cause justified to get jaded

But you crossed your arms like a little girl

And gave your bag of fairy dust a swirl


My Emily

The universe spins

Under human skin

Shooting stars within


Your playfulness

You hug the ridiculous

Shrug off all the awfulness

To chug life’s happiness


But tonight your faith in magic faded

With cause justified to get jaded

But you held your ground like a stubborn little girl

And gave your bag of fairy dust a swirl


My Emily

You’re never bored

Your innocence explored

The child feels adored


As years ferment

And cynics relent

You’re transcendent and free

My Emily

Wow, one song left to write for my 12 month music challenge from August 2017-August 2018!  I have written 2 new original songs every month for a year now. I have chosen to release them in their most raw form to become more comfortable with songwriting vulnerability. Thank you so much for the opportunity.
