Lyrics

The sun came up; the sun went down
A wasted day in this West Coast town
You left without a trace and I can't recall your face
Seems I can't remember Memphis anymore

The days we walked by the Graceland trees
The nights of love in the summer breeze
You held me like a treasure and you promised me forever
But I can't remember Memphis anymore.

No I can't remember Memphis anymore
Walking hand in hand together on that Mississippi shore
I carried you across the threshold of that old apartment door.
But I can't remember Memphis anymore

Took off my dress of lace and white, Our passion filled a moonlit night
solo
I must forget every breath we took together
I can't believe that we could end
And I know my heart won't mend ... forever

I'm on to dream another dream
You're on to scheme another scheme
You left me for another and I no longer am your lover
And I can't remember Memphis anymore

And I can't remember Memphis anymore
Those days we laughed forever
And we kissed in every store
No I can't remember Memphis
I won't forgive all your pretenses

And I can't remember Memphis anymore
Those days we laughed forever
And we kissed in every store
No I can't remember Memphis
I won't forgive all your pretenses
I can't remember Memphis
I can't remember Memphis
I can't remember Memphis anymore
