7 Minutes 02:33
7 Minutes We’re texting like we’re dating But at the party you barely look my way It shouldn’t be complicated Electric currents and basic chemistry When I’m close to you, I know you feel it Just you and me, yeah So let me prove it Let me show you how I’d get to know you ‘Cause I’ve been waiting To give you 7 minutes in heaven To make this moment feel like forever To taste your bubblegum I’ve been praying To give you 7 minutes in heaven We’ll turn the closet into a new dimension Oh, yeah We’re dancing like we’re lovers Ditching the party to go out one on one You sing along to New Order You got your strawberry lip gloss on I’m so close to you, I hear you breathing Yeah I can feel it So let’s get a room Let me show you how I’d get to know you, to know you I’ve been waiting To give you 7 minutes in heaven To make this moment feel like forever To taste your bubblegum I’ve been praying To give you 7 minutes in heaven We’ll turn the closet into a new dimension Oh, yeah

Let me tell you what I really want But you gotta listen close Baby, Don’t keep me waiting Riding on a rainbow, bless me like an angel Take me over the sunset A hypnagogic phantom Tripping when we’re dancing I lose my breath when you’re next to me And just one look is ecstasy But I just can’t tell you how I feel inside So I will See you in my dreams When every touch is like a shooting star I’ll see you in my dreams When every kiss is glowing in the dark I never wanna wake up I’ll see you in my dreams Peace out, let’s take this to the clouds Diamonds in your eyes We’re so cute that I’m crying I just want to do this every night Manic pixie dream girl, technicolor sexual There’s just no way this love is real But I can’t fight the way I feel It’s magic every time I close my eyes So I will See you in my dreams (All night) When every touch is like a shooting star I’ll see you in my dreams (All night) When every kiss is glowing in the dark I never wanna wake up I’ll see you in my dreams Never, never, never, never, never, never Never wanna wake up Oh, Never, never, never, never, never, never Never wanna wake up

My daddy said those boys will break your heart So I never trusted anyone Thought I could love you but I got so lost I just ran into oblivion I think I’m missing out On summer nights driving reckless with you I’ll never live it down Now I’m by the phone, all alone I want to call you right now I want to let it all go just to be with you I want to kiss you like I’m gonna die We’re living in the afterlove I wanna call you right now I wanna call you right now I simulate the way that you make me feel When I’m lying naked in my bed Go back in time have our first kiss in my mind How can I ever get over it? I think I’m missing out Those summer nights I just lied there with you I never kept you around, Now I’m by the phone, all alone I want to call you right now I want to let it all go just to be with you I want to kiss you like I’m gonna die We’re living in the afterlove Living after love, let me break your heart I want to call you right now I want to let it all go just to be with you I want to kiss you like I’m gonna die We’re living in the afterlove Living after love, let me break your heart

Me Without U 03:26
Now it’s gonna be Me Without U I let it go I let it slide The way you tore me up inside Little put-downs Your coy remarks Those were the ones that broke my heart It used to be, used to be us Til I went and found my confidence So now it’s gonna be me without u I was enough, I was enough baby Don’t need your love Take it back to where you came from A diamond ring A silver knife Didn’t know which would take my life Prisoner of love, holding onto you Til I woke up and I saw the truth You used to feel like a drug Til I realized, I was enough So now it’s gonna be me without U I was enough, I was enough baby Don’t need your love Take it back to where you came from

Interlude 00:41

San Junipero 04:46
We’re standing by the shore The stars are watching over us I gotta let you know That I I wanna ask you to dance Dance with me I want the touch of your hand Don’t let me go Can I keep all your love? We’ll be in paradise We can be forever in San Junipero Driving through San Junipero Feeling free You know I die every moment you’re near to me And if you want me to move Take my hand, pull me in And let’s go Cuz I’d follow you to the moon Lucid dream til we never wake up I wanna ask you to dance Dance with me I want the touch of your hand Don’t let me go Can I keep all your love? We’ll be in paradise We can be forever in San Junipero Think I’m in love with you, baby I’m scared right now Swear my whole life I’ve been waiting To say it out loud When we’re running barefoot on the beach You take me away And this feels too good to be real Is forever too far away Ooh, I want to ask you to dance I want to ask you to dance with me Don’t let me go I want to ask you to Dance Dance Dance Dance I wanna ask you to dance Dance with me I want the touch of your hand Don’t let me go Can I keep all your love? We’ll be in paradise We can be forever in San Junipero

SayAPrayer 03:21
I think it’s more than a crush I think I’m feeling too much Let it go, let it in You become everything I said a prayer for you I want to know you better Than anybody does I feel it like the sea Is parting in my heart That you’re sent from above I say a prayer for ecstatic Sex Magic Say a prayer for new fevers Believers I say a prayer for new love, new love I say a prayer for new love, new love I wanna live in your eyes, I wanna die by your side Live the dream til the end Just the thought makes me cry I said a prayer for you I want to love you longer than the world has been alive And when you touch me we both go to Heaven, help me I see it in your eyes I say a prayer for ecstatic Sex Magic Say a prayer for new fevers Believers I say a prayer for new love, new love I say a prayer for new love, new love I said a prayer for you, cuz baby come on (I said a prayer for you) I said a prayer for you, cuz you were the one (And now it’s come true) I said a prayer for you, cuz baby come on (I said a prayer for you) I said a prayer for you, cuz you were the one (And now it’s come true) I say a prayer for ecstatic Sex Magic Say a prayer for new fevers Believers I say a prayer for new love, new love I say a prayer for new love, new love

Floating 03:06
Lights In my eyes Holding you tonight It feels like we’re in heaven sometimes Until I realize I can’t decide Oh I I keep floating in and out of love Want to hold you close then want to run I keep floating, floating, floating, floating, floating I keep floating, floating, floating, floating, floating High On your touch, so electrified We’re traveling through space and time Until I wake up and the magic dies Oh I I keep floating in and out of love Want to hold you close then want to run I keep floating, floating, floating, floating, floating I keep floating, floating, floating, floating, floating In and out of love, floating with you In and out of love, floating with you In and out of love, floating with you In and out of love, floating with you

I was used to missing you now I gotta miss you forever Light a candle in my room I watch it burn and remember Dying laughing on your floor 7AM in the winter Your cigarette smell on my coat I wish it stayed a little longer I can't help but dream Can't let this be What do I do when your candle goes out? When the wind takes you and says that it's over now? Oh, I'll have to let this go somehow When your candle goes out You taught me life is for the joy That nothing else could even matter Out at a bar, underdressed We danced our way through this mess And I wish we danced a little longer Cuz I have lost my friend, Can't let this end What do I do when your candle goes out? When the wind takes you and says that it's over now? Oh, I'll have to let this go somehow Oh, I'll have to let this go somehow Oh, I'll have to let this go somehow When your candle goes out

about

'The Afterlove' is Emily Blue's long-awaited third studio album, coming January 2022.

Started alongside beloved friend / producer Max Perenchio, and finished after his passing, 'The Afterlove' carries Blue through very real experiences of love and loss.

Songs like ‘San Junipero’ and ‘SayAPrayer’ paint colorful, fantastical sonic landscapes that feel like a dreamy simulation. Underneath synths and heavy pop hooks in 'Me Without U' are messages of empowerment and the processing of grief.

Blue now steps into 'The Afterlove' not only as an emerging pop force, but also a producer, collaborating with other close friends Joseph Meland (Uuskhy, Iverson), Augustine Rompolla (Family of Geniuses), and LA's Shubu.

Pre-order the album now, and stream the first three singles on Spotify.
