The Arizona Song

Paris, France is just another place

The Mona Lisa’s just another face

The pyramids of Giza are just rocks that do not mean a single thing

Without you

 

The painted desert’s just a bunch of sand

And I wouldn’t call that canyon grand

Sunsets in Sedona aren’t meant to be watched alone, you know

They’re nothing, nothing without you

 

Cuz you are

Color in a world of grey and

You are

Language love and art

And you are

History and music

My whole world without you falls apart

 

The northern lights, the sun, the moon, the stars

Only shine to me if they are ours

There is no piano that has ever played a tune

That was not a song for me and you

 

Cuz you are

Color in a world of grey and

You are

Language love and art

And you are

History and music

My whole world without you falls apart

 

And I know

I’ve made nothing but mistakes and

Empty promises to you

But I know

That if I should lose you

That would be the worst thing I could do

 

I know that I chose to go away

Even though I promised that I’d stay

But now I know it’s you alone who fills the open roads

The only thing I want is to come home

 

The only thing I want is to come home

Cuz you are

You are

You are

History and music

And the only thing I want is to come home

 

So I pray you’ll open up your heart

To someone who has learned

Cuz the moment that I left your side

I dreamt of my return

And I understand if that is not a chance that I have earned

But if you will listen I will offer you these words

 

Meet me in Arizona 

Where I saw you for the first time

I am waiting in Arizona

I’ll keep waiting

You can take your time

 

Meet me south of Sedona 

Where I loved you for the first time

I have loved you since Arizona 

And I’ll love you

You can take your time

 

You can take your time

You can take your time

You can take your time
