lyrics

I came upon a long forgotten quarry
Where the limestone was filled with memories
At the edge I heard a song, it said you were sorry
For what had become of you and me

I found myself in a freefall to the sea
To the lighthouse, I called out "Baby, please"
But you closed the door, as I washed ashore
And so I return on bended knee

You know I wonder if you're lonesome tonight
I wonder a lot of things. Mostly, how we ever drifted apart
But last night the ghost of Elvis came to visit me
And he said, "Freddy, I can see how much you love her
And I can see how much you care
So sing this song and she'll come back to you."

But I found a path I thought would lead to you
Through brambles and darkness of the trees
I heard your laughter, but it was just a dream
And so I return on bended knee
