Song Description

This minor-key ballad has a solid, mid-tempo feel, and the song's snappy, surf-inspired production creates an interesting and moody vibe. Marc's tenor vocal ride above the viby arrangement giving the song a country and pop feel; almost like a folk-rock song. The soaring end note is dramatic and acts as a perfect coda to this song about disgust and frustration in finding love amidst a night rain storm in Memphis, TN.

Story Behind the Song

Written, once again, by Marc Corey Lee, the song is based on a moody riff at the top of the song. The song presents differen scenarios on a search for love during a rainstorm in Memphis one night. The idea of "I don't know and I don't care" in the context of trying to find love is the basis of the minor-key song. The steel guitar gives it a crying feeling, and the twangy surf-like guitar is an odd element that makes the song appeal to country and rock listeners.

Lyrics

There's a full moon crawling
Across these cloudy skies tonight
There's a cold wind blowing in
Into these Southern skies
And I think about you
I think about you lying somewhere feeling blue

Step inside the circus
Mister, "Would you like to dance?
We could make the pages of a
Paperback romance."
And then I look in her eyes
And I wonder what she's
Trying so hard to hide

(CHORUS)
Well I don't know and I don't care
And I can't find love anywhere
I don't want to play this game
So I step into the night, In this Memphis Rain

I see a fallen angel
Silhouetted on the moon
Promising me true love
In some midnight motel room
And then I think about love
Where's the promises you
Told me it was made of?

(CHORUS)
(GUITAR)
(CHORUS)
In this Memphis Rain
In this Memphis Rain
