Lyrics

Cry Like Memphis
Bryan Fox/Mika Evans
I made you an offer
no one's ever made to me
mouth full of wasted words
just like they've always been
I loved our song
till you changed the way it ends
tomorrows been replaced
with remember when
Im gonna want you
Like a farmer that prays for rain
Im gonna dream of you
every minute I'm awake
Im gonna smile and joke
and laugh out loud
till everyone goes home
then Im going to cry like memphis
when they heard the king was gone
I feel like my heart and souls
in a war-torn foreign land
I had a hope of something great
just to be shot in the end
when the wounds are gone
they'll scar deep beneath the skin
I live to fight again
but until then
Im gonna want you
Like a farmer that prays for rain
Im gonna dream of you
every minute I'm awake
Im gonna smile and joke
and laugh out loud
till everyone goes home
then Im going to cry like memphis
when they heard the king was gone
So I'm faking happy
Pretending life was fair
so I pray to Lord above
Hoping that there'll be
a blue sky morning
Praying that there'll be just one more song
Im gonna want you
Like a farmer that prays for rain
Im gonna dream of you
every minute I'm awake
Im gonna smile and joke and laugh out loud till everyone goes home
then Im going to cry like memphis
when they heard the king was gone
