Walk the Stars

It was a good day for a hurricane
I got pictures of us sinking
I was circling the drain
But it got me thinking
I was choking in my sleep
And I was too tired to fight
I was a stone trying to weep
While I was dreaming of flight

So I was walking downtown Memphis
And looking up at Mars
I was writing you a letter
I’d just rather be in your arms
Walking down in Memphis
And listening to Mars
I was thinking about the tempest
The night I left your heart

Well I was walking down the street
I saw your smiling face in the gutter
You’re a vision so sweet
But only the crazies muttered
And it was too dark to see
The stars kept me together
I was burnin’ so deep
But it changed just like the weather

And so I was walking downtown Memphis
And looking up at Mars
I was writing you a letter
I’d rather just be in your arms
Walking in downtown in Memphis
And listening to Mars
I was thinking about the tempest
The night I left your heart

My baggage was the liquor
And she left me in the bottle
She said I was getting sicker
Just before she kicked the throttle
Now people say I’ve snapped
Ever since she left
That was just the breaking glass
As outta the bottle I stepped

So now I’m walking in downtown Memphis
Looking for a star
And I’ll be dreaming about you forever
And Venus ain’t that far
See I was walkin’ in Downtown Memphis
Lookin’ for a star
And I’ll be thinkin’ about the tempest
Till I repair your heart
