Alan Guno – Romeo Returns To Memphis lyrics

Here at this old country house once grew the sweetest rose
Light breaks through the window there – it's secret left untold
Family portraits still in place and gazing out at me
Standin’ on this dark front porch beneath this balcony

Visions, apparitions
Grace the mist but guard the door
They see, they condemn me
Like before

And when the rains return to Memphis
They conjure up the ghosts of time
Just star-crossed lovers we were restless
Back when my fairest sun still shined

Outside this house of pain and passion
Emotions still recall the storm
Our love is locked behind these walls still
Your Romeo stands here alone

A story on the west side – like that tale from long ago
Sweetest sorrow poisons love when blood is all they know
And they would flee a family – affirm what no one would
Racing to a desperate end – cuz no one understood

Years gone, still my tears fall
For my love who lives no more
They see, and they blame me
Like before

And when the rains return to Memphis
They conjure up the ghosts of time
Just star-crossed lovers we were restless
Back when my fairest sun still shined

Outside this house of pain and passion
Emotions still recall the storm
Your Romeo can hear your voice still:
“Wherefore art thou?” – I’m here alone

Tragic in their magic
I’d rather die and play their parts
Because then, We’d be like them
Not apart

And when the rains return to Memphis
They conjure up the ghosts of time
Just star-crossed lovers we were restless
Back when my fairest sun still shined

Outside this house of pain and passion
Emotions still recall the storm
Our love is locked behind these walls still
Your Romeo stands here alone

And I’ll forever hear your voice still:
“Wherefore art thou?”- I’m here alone
