Because of you I will always go to Memphis
Because of you it will always feel like home
I should have known the right answer was the simplest
I should have trusted in the things I've always known
I was unprepared for feeling like I do
And I was unprepared for all the things that came along with you
So I'm sorry
That I couldn't save you
That I couldn't be what you needed
Please forgive me
Oh you know I tried
Cuz I'm still on my hands and knees
You'd better believe
That I'd stay here till you could pull us up
Oh but baby, I guess sometimes love is not enough
Because of you I may always need a light on
Just to prove what I feel is just your ghost
And baby because of you I'll never drink too much
And I'll never understand how one drop could drown me
How it could steal your love
So I'm sorry
That I couldn't save you
That I couldn't be what you needed
Please forgive me
Oh you know I tried
Cuz I'm still on my hands and knees
You'd better believe
That I'd stay here till you could pull us up
Oh but baby, I guess sometimes love is not enough
Sometimes when the wind blows
I'll pretend that is you
Telling me it's not my fault
That I couldn't get through
And baby I'll always be sorry
That I couldn't save you
I could not save you
Please forgive me
Oh you know I've tried
Cause I am still on my hands and knees
You'd better believe that I'd stay here Till you could pull us up Oh, but baby, I guess sometimes love is not enough
Because of you I will always go to Memphis
