liz longley – memphis lyrics

Loading...

[verse 1]
the tv’s on again
you’re watching the weatherman
i know you’re thinking about leaving
when the skies are clear
i wouldn’t stand in your way
i wouldn’t try to make you stay
i’d watch you get in your car
i know you wouldn’t get far from here

[chorus 1]
you wouldn’t make it to memphis
you wouldn’t make it half way
you take that lonely road
and you realize your mistakes
you wouldn’t make it to memphis
oh no, you’d come around
you think of all the things that you could have done
wonder what it was you were running from
and all you’d miss
you wouldn’t make it to memphis

[verse 2]
when i fell in love with you
there was nothing we couldn’t get through
we had our doubts, we talked them out
’til the sun went down
and now i sit here at home
waiting on the telephone
the skies aren’t clear and you’re not here
so i just keep telling myself

[chorus 1]
you wouldn’t make it to memphis
you wouldn’t make it half way
you take that lonely road
and you realize your mistakes
you wouldn’t make it to memphis
oh no, you’d come around
you think of all the things that you could have done
wonder what it was you were running from
and all you’d miss
you wouldn’t make it to memphis

[bridge]
maybe you’ll change your mind
maybe you just need time
still i can’t help but cry

[chorus 2]
you wouldn’t make it to memphis
you wouldn’t make it half way
take that lonely road
and you realize this was all one big mistake
you ain’t going to memphis
i knew you’d come around
if we never had a chance, could you live with that?
better breath it all in when you’re looking back
just think of all the things that you could have done
wonder what it was you were running from
and all you’d miss
you wouldn’t make it to memphis
