Where the Appalachians jigsaw into Tennessee
There's a feeling
There's a whisper in the evergreens
Saying "Head back down the seven states and provinces,
and be there with Simone before the morning is"

I gave her all the space she said she didn't need
As logic choked the air from one more fantasy
it's been 40 nights I haven't slept a wink of them
Make it right whatever shape I get to Memphis in

And I'm terrified to live and die all by myself
I'm ready to be saved
Sister Simone

Thumbing through the decades of a rosary
I close my eyes and search for where my faith should be
Cause courage disappears whenever tears arrive
and in the gospel of Simone I will be reconciled

Forgive me for the doubt I left in you and me
I never thought that good things come this easily
Forgive me for the feeling I was wasting time
I didn't want for you to think you'd wasted mine
So let me take you out to where the city ends
watch the Memphis lights till we're alright again
