He made my loving heart hollow
With blue eyes and sandy hair
Where he went I would follow
Holding a loving hand
That turned on me in the end
Oh how I wish I could've kept him as a friend

True love
Isn't always the truest
His blue eyes
Made my world the bluest
He was a little wild
A little reckless
Sometimes I really miss
That boy from Memphis

He had the most adorable grin
And I was convinced we'd be
Lifelong friends
He gave me the answers I was searching for
So afraid to hurt my feelings
But in the end he hurt me so much more

True love
Isn't always the truest
His blue eyes
Made my world the bluest
He was a little wild
A little reckless
Sometimes I really miss
That boy from Memphis

I can still see the look in his eyes
From the way he was staring at me
I knew it was goodbye
I wanted to cry
But I kept it inside
I wanted to ask him why...

True love
Isn't always the truest
His blue eyes
Made my world the bluest
And didn't we have some good times?
Why was I so, so blind?
He was a little wild
A little reckless
Sometimes I really miss
That boy from Memphis

So I'm gonna keep my distance
Cause I've learned the hard way once before
It's a lesson learned
But it left me with a burn
The size of Texas
That boy from Memphis, Tennessee
