Megaplex in the town centre
Driven by my sister here
Unafraid and unaware
That is when I saw you there
Telephone spies in every corner
A policeman is trying to warn ya
Gave me the look, gave me the caution
Touching me like it was an audition

Then you looked at me
Pointed out that I was drunk on whiskey
You looked at me
Said, “let’s get incredibly drunk on whiskey”

Megaplex and they’re closing the floor court down
Fleetwood Mac and The Landslide plays in the background
The dead are coming to life in our hometown
Holding their loved ones, muttering
“I was lost and now I’m found”
Called my sister to come but she’s not there
You and I will have to walk from here
If I had known, I would have made it clear:
As soon as I’m legal, this love affair is over

Help me up
I need you to help me up
Help me be sick
I need you to help me be sick
Help me to sleep
I need you to help me to sleep
Help me to dream
I need you to help me to dream

    General CommentThis is the song that got me interested in Memphis - it is just really silly and fun to listen to. It reminds me of my more goofy, less sober times :-).It sounds like the narrator is just having a fun night out with this girl he met, but never really intended anything to come out of it - "As soon as I am legal, this love affair is over".

    General Commenti thought it was about the narrator talking about going to the Megaplex to buy some whiskey, but that they were still underaged so they couldn't get it... "telephone spies in every corner" and "a policeman is trying to warn ya"

    then again, i may just be reading this song to literally... but if it is, there's something poetic about the line "As soon as I'm legal, this love affair is over," cuz it reminds me how underaged kids love getting plastered, but when people are actually old enough to buy the stuff legally, getting drunk sorta loses its novelty--the thing that made it so fun and exciting
