(Verse)
I went to Barcelona on the midnight train
I walked the streets of Paris in the pouring rain
I flew across and island in the Northern Sea
And I ended up in Memphis, Tennessee

(Chorus)
I keep my head down, I keep my eyes on you
It's a big wide world with a million shades of modern blue

(Verse)
Everybody round here runs too fast
And it feels so good but it's never gonna last
Everything I have for us what I knew
But I don't have nothing if I don't have you

(Chorus)
I keep my head down, I keep my eyes on you
It's a big wide world with a million shades of modern blue

(Verse)
Will you still be there when I round the curve?
Will you hold my hand when I lose my nerve?
Oh I went to Barcelona and my mind got changed
So I'm heading back to Memphis on the midnight train

(Chorus)
I keep my head down, I keep my eyes on you
It's a big wide world
I keep my head down, I keep my eyes on you
I keep my head down, I keep my eyes on you
It's a big wide world with a million shades of modern blue
