"Letter To Memphis" as written by and Charles Thompson....
The day since I met her
I can't believe it's true
She came here from Memphis
Across the ocean sailing

And I saw her and I pleaded
Why do you come so far?
And she said," Trying to get to you
How I tried to get to you
Trying to get to you"

I'm sending a letter
I'll send it right to you
I'll send it to Memphis
I know that someday

Everything I needed and I wanted
Used to be that my head was haunted
And all these sirens they make me mad
And all this violence it brings me down

I feel strong, I feel lucky
Trying to get to you
Said I'm going to get to you
Trying to get to you

    General CommentYeah, he explains it in the liner nots for the Complete B-sides; he says its a love letter to the love of his life, from a PAST life, who lived in Memphis, Egypt.

    And SAWraith, i totally agree with you--the intro to this song give me goosebumps EVERY time i hear it.

    It is the most perfect aural representation of wistful longing in the entire universe. Every time i hear it, i feel like im soaring through time and space, searching for a part of me i lost eons ago.
