ARIZONA STATE OF MIND

VERSE
It was a hundred and five degrees
When the plane touched down in Phoenix
I never dreamed in that heat
I’d find a river of love I needed
Like the full moon in that desert sky
She lit up my lonely nights
We made a lifetime of lovin’
In a weekend

CHORUS
But now she’s gone—so am I
Each back to our separate lives
She went west and I went east
But my heart still feels the heat
That’s left me in
This Arizona state of mind

VERSE
We never said goodbye
Just until we meet the next time
God only knows when we might
Maybe never in this lifetime
But as that big bird soared up through the sky
I leaned back and closed my eyes
Remembering her touch
For the first time

REPEAT CHORUS
INSTRUMENTAL

CHORUS (Yeah, now she’s gone...)

TAG
Yeah she left me in
This Arizona state of mind
Oh, this Arizona state of mind
