“There is a girl in New York City 

Who calls herself the human trampoline 

And sometimes when I’m falling, flying 

Or tumbling in turmoil I say 

Oh, so this is what she means…”


I feel like that most of the time…    😉

LYRICS

The Mississippi Delta was shining 

Like a National guitar 

I am following the river 

Down the highway 

Through the cradle of the civil war 

I’m going to Graceland 

Graceland 

In Memphis Tennessee 

I’m going to Graceland 

Poor boys and pilgrims with families 

And we are going to Graceland 

My traveling companion is nine years old 

He is the child of my first marriage 

But I’ve reason to believe 

We both will be received 

In Graceland 
She comes back to tell me she’s gone 

As if I didn’t know that 

As if I didn’t know my own bed 

As if I’d never noticed 

The way she brushed her hair from her forehead 

And she said losing love 

Is like a window in your heart 

Everybody sees you’re blown apart 

Everybody sees the wind blow 
I’m going to Graceland 

Memphis Tennessee 

I’m going to Graceland 

Poor boys and pilgrims with families 

And we are going to Graceland 
And my traveling companions 

Are ghosts and empty sockets 

I’m looking at ghosts and empties 

But I’ve reason to believe 

We all will be received 

In Graceland 
There is a girl in New York City 

Who calls herself the human trampoline 

And sometimes when I’m falling, flying 

Or tumbling in turmoil I say 

Oh, so this is what she means 

She means we’re bouncing into Graceland 

And I see losing love 

Is like a window in your heart 

Everybody sees you’re blown apart 

Everybody sees the wind blow 
In Graceland, in Graceland 

I’m going to Graceland 

For reasons I cannot explain 

There’s some part of me wants to see 

Graceland 

And I may be obliged to defend 

Every love, every ending 

Or maybe there’s no obligations now 

Maybe I’ve a reason to believe 

We all will be received 

In Graceland
