  • Sometimes when this place gets kind of empty
    The sound of the gulf fills with a light
    I think about the hopeless fascination
    Under the Milky Way tonight

    Lower the curtain down in Memphis
    Lower the curtain down all right
    We took our time, to find the concertation
    Under the milky way tonight

    (chorus)
    Wish I knew what you were looking for
    Might have known what you would find
    That is something quite peculiar
    Something that shimmers green and white

    Did you hear, despite our fascination
    Under the milky way tonight

    (chorus)
    Wish I knew what you were looking for
    Might have known what you would find
    Wish I knew what you were looking for
    Might have known what you would find

    Yeah
    I know something quite peculiar
    Something that shimmers green and white
    But did you hear, despite our fascination?
    Under the milky way tonight

    (chorus)
    Wish I knew what you were looking for
    Might have known what you would find
    Wish I knew what you were looking for
    Might have known what you would find

    I know something quite peculiar
    Something that shimmers green and white
    But did you hear? Despite our fascination?
    Under the milky way tonight
