Lights Out - Lisa Marie Presley

You were a million miles behind.
And I was crying every time I'd leave you.
Then I didn't want to see you.
I still keep my watch two hours behind.

(Chorus)
Someone turned the lights out there in Memphis.
That's where my family's buried and gone.
Last time I was there I noticed a space left.
Next to them there in Memphis.
In the damn back lawn.

I didn't know that I was in the crowd.
And the fresh cut grass stopped growing.
Everything on my shelf has fallen.
I still keep my watch two hours behind.

(Chorus)
Someone turned the lights out there in Memphis.
That's where my family's buried and gone.
Last time I was there I noticed a space left.
Next to them there in Memphis.
In the damn back lawn.

Was that bridge I was crossing.
Somewhere I stopped walking.
I guess I fell off on my own.
I heard all the roads they lead to Memphis.
Except for the one I'm stumbling down.
And I'll be damned if I ever get this, little son of a b_tch from Memphis. Well it's all there I guess. And I haven't forgot.
(Chorus)
