“Lights out” by Lisa Marie Presley.

Song Lyrics


You were a million miles behind.

And I was crying every time I'd leave you

Then I didn't want to see you

I still keep my watch two hours behind

Someone turned the lights out there in

Memphis

Ooh, that's where my family's buried and gone (gone)

Oh yeah

Last time I was there, I noticed a space left

Oh, next to them there in Memphis, yeah In the damn back lawn

I didn't know that I was in the crowd

Oh and then the fresh cut grass stopped growing

Everything on my shelf has fallen

I still keep my watch two hours behind

Someone turned the lights out there in

Memphis.


But despite her accomplishments, Lisa Marie's legacy will always be closely tied to that of her father. As the only child of Elvis Presley, she is the last living link to one of the most iconic figures in music history, and the legacy of her father has shaped her life and career.


One way Lisa Marie has honored her father's legacy is through her music. Her songs often draw on the themes and emotions that were central to her father's music, such as heartache and longing. Her music is also heavily influenced by the rock and roll and country sounds that her father helped popularize.


Another way in which Lisa Marie has honored her father's legacy is through her work preserving and promoting his legacy. She has been heavily involved in preserving Graceland, her father's former home.

However, being the daughter of such an iconic figure also brought its own set of challenges for Lisa Marie. Growing up in the shadow of such a larger-than-life figure, and carrying the weight of his legacy, can be overwhelming. She faced criticism and skepticism from those who saw her success as simply a result of her father's fame.


Additionally, in the wake of her father's death, Lisa Marie was also faced with the task of protecting and preserving his legacy, which can be a heavy burden. She had to navigate the often-complicated business dealings surrounding her father's estate and inheritance while also trying to establish herself as an independent artist and businesswoman.

From her childhood as the daughter of a music icon to her own successful career as a singer and songwriter, Lisa Marie has lived in the spotlight since the day she was born. She has honored her father's legacy through her music, her work in preserving and promoting his legacy, and her determination to establish herself as a successful artist and businesswoman in her own right, despite the challenges that came with being the daughter of Elvis Presley.


A Quote from Lisa Marie Presley.


Death is part of life whether we like it or not — and so is grieving," she wrote. "There is so much to learn and understand on the subject, but here's what I know so far: One is that grief does not stop or go away in any sense, a year or years after the loss. You will have to carry grief for the Rest of your life, despite what certain people or our culture want us to believe. You do not 'get over it,' or move on,' period."
