Lyrics:

Lost in this moment for this evening and I'm running out of time to kill,
And I'd say it seems this evening that I'm seeing you making time stand still.
And I know I'm told that some things can't be sold but certain situations call for throwing out the plans and bending days to fit the chance to speak to you.

Well people love and people war, but now I'm sure that I'd be yours,
if only I could change the course of a sun that's sleeping as it shines on you.

My feet are slipping down,
And my hands are clinging to,
The hope that one day now,
We'll eat, sleep, breath and dream together,
On Memphis time.

Some people say I'm running perfect circles 'round my chances that I get to be free,
And that changing the unchangeable is hopeless but I don't think they see.
That I could run away and hide a hundred times, but I still find I'm getting tired of taking roads that lead towards a brighter life that leaves out you.

And the more I fall, the more I feel my feet were formed to follow unfamiliar soil until I end up far away but resting next to you.

My feet are slipping down,
And my hands are clinging to,
The hope that one day now,
We'll eat, sleep, breath and dream together,
On Memphis time.

(Instrumental)

My feet are slipping down,
And my hands are clinging to,
The hope that one day now,
We'll eat, sleep, breath and dream together,
On Memphis time.
