The neon lights weren't bright enough
To help me find my way around
This all too smokey, karoake bar and grill downtown
When we first came here late one night
It was something of a lark
We watched the singers, some were ringers, and held hands in the dark
But now we're worlds apart

I watched an old man take the stage
With a stride that showed his years
He sang "Love Me Tender", "Return To Sender"
And you'd swear that "E" was near
But I'd rather have her here

That was Elvis singing "Elvis" and I sit here all alone
She is not with me to share this and she won't be coming home
We have seen the sights of Paris, kissed below the "Bridge of Sighs"
Now I swear to you I saw him, but without her by my side
It could just be my eyes

As he walked off, the lights came up
And I caught his tired face
With eyes still burning and that lip up-turning
Still perfectly in place
I turned to see her wide blue eyes
But she wasn't there this time
She had ways that had me believing in magic
And lately that's hard to find
Well, maybe one last time

That was Elvis singing "Elvis" and I sit here all alone
She is not with me to share this and she's never coming home
We had lived a dream in Paris, kissed below 1000 lights
But those memories are fading as he's walking out of sight
It must have been my eyes

Great , sentimental song! Puts you in a meloncholy mood, great visual lyrical content , very nice vocals / harmonies .. great instrumental production :)!

Great song! Beautiful memory piece! So evocative. The info played out little by little, just enough mystery to keep you hooked, lovely arrangement, the last fadeout into memory, all very cool.
