Memphis - Lyrics

Are you gonna call me in the morning?
'Cause I noticed the look in your eyes
when our hands touched,
glancing like boxers fighting for championship prizes.
I was just looking for a good time, I never thought I'd find it
And I'll be back on the 9 to 5 grind tomorrow
Times is hard and the bills are deep
I can barely make ends meet, I can't take care of you, so
Oh I know we've had a good ride,
but there's no pressure to follow through.
Some never cross the ocean
I've only stood barefoot on the shore
I've never been to Memphis but I swear I will someday
And if I, if I'm being honest I've never been in love before
I've just been chasing shadows
Praying that it waits for me
And you're not gonna call me in the morning
That's all right, dear, it's no surprise
Plus I heard you got a girl back
home, she must have slipped your mind, well
We were out having a good time
And these things always happen without warning in the morning (?)
Always the spark, never the flame
I've never crossed the ocean,
I've only stood barefoot on the shore
Never been to Memphis but I swear I will someday
And if I, if I'm being honest I've never been in love before
I've just been chasing shadows,
praying that it waits
And I can be alone a little longer if it means
that love is rising like the dawn to shine on me
I'm running on, life ain't half as long as it seems
It isn't gonna wait for me
I'm gonna cross the ocean and swim 'till I lose the shore
I've never been to Memphis but I'm on my way
And I'm just being honest, but I've never been in love before
And I've seen its shadows
Yes I've seen its shadow
Oh I've seen its shadows praying that it waits for me
