Memphis snow

When my sunshine was stolen away

With love and kindness, took away my blindness

You knew just what to say

Gave me strength to live through the day

Kept me safe and warm

Now I hang on to every word you say

Anger was never my thing

Silent was my pain

But you heard the screams from within

You gave me so much time

When words were hard

You taught me how to rhyme

Chorus

Your heart is as pure as Memphis snow

I can’t ever let you go

How on earth did I survive alone

With so many things to atone

Living life outta control

Bless your beautiful soul

Long may love reign

And may peace follow

In a world gone insane

When nothing makes any sense

Except two hearts rolled into one

No need for pretense

Did I ever say thank you?

Did I ever say sorry?

Well I think it’s long overdue

I’m gonna be there all the way

Into the dark hours

And the light of day

 

Chorus

Your heart is as pure as Memphis snow

I can’t ever let you go

How on earth did I survive alone

With so many things to atone

Living life outta control

Bless your beautiful soul

Nowhere bound

Walking away was always easy

It’s something I learned long ago

Cos fate always seems to tease me

At first there’s happiness and bliss

But you know deep inside

That out of the blue comes the twist

It’s a loosing game for lost souls

Whose dreams have vanished

Along with their goals

Don’t feel pity don’t feel shame

No direction free to roam

To take the heat and feel the flame

Chorus

Spent too long being kicked around

Can’t take you with me , I’m nowhere bound

Don’t cry a tear, don’t make a sound

You can’t board a train that’s nowhere bound

I ain’t leaving just seeing it through

You knew it would end this way

So don’t pretend it’s outta the blue

A wondering spirit can never stay

And it just don’t matter anymore

Cos I just can’t find peace anyway

Chorus

Spent too long being kicked around

Can’t take you with me , I’m nowhere bound

Don’t cry a tear, don’t make a sound

You can’t board a train that’s nowhere bound
