    I'm so far from home
    And she's gone
    I messed up in Memphis

    Alone
    Out here on my own
    The night is young
    Messed up in Memphis

    Oh, there's music in the air tonight
    City lights and I hear those Beale Street blues
    Telling me it's gonna be alright
    Let it go
    You got nothing' left to lose

    Oh, pain
    I don't feel no pain
    Messed up in Memphis

    Oh, there's music in the air tonight
    City lights and I hear those Beale Street blues
    Telling me it's gonna be alright
    Let it go
    You got nothin' left to lose

    Oh, glance
    Just a passing glance
    A second chance
    Messed up in Memphis

    Fire
    Painted lips on fire
    Love for hire
    Messed up in Memphis

    Love for hire
