"There Is No Arizona" as written by Shaye Smith, Jamie O'neal and Lisa A Drew....
He promised her a new and better life out in Arizona
Underneath the blue neverending sky, swore that he was gonna
Get things in order he'd send for her
When he left her behind, it never crossed her mind

There is no Arizona
No painted desert, no Sedona
If there was a Grand Canyon
She could fill it up with the lies he's told her
But they don't exist, those dreams he sold her
She'll wak up and find
There is no Arizona

She got a postcard with no return address postmarked Tombstone
It said, I don't know where I'm goin' next, but when I do I'll let you know
May, June, July, she wonders why
She's still waiting, she'll keep waiting ?cause

There is no Arizona
No painted desert, no Sedona
If there was a Grand Canyon
She could fill it up with the lies he's told her
But they don't exist, those dreams he sold her
She'll get there and find
There is no Arizona

Each day the sun sets into the west
Her heart sinks lower in her chest
Friends keep asking when she's going
Finally she tells them, don't you know

There is no Arizona
No painted desert, no Sedona
If there was a Grand Canyon
She could fill it up with the lies he's told her
But they don't exist, those dreams he sold her
She'll get there and find
There is no Arizona

    General CommentThis song could be looked at through a lot of views. No matter how you spin it, a man leaves a girl and never comes back. You could say he meant to come back but for whatever reason didn't, or he just stringed her along cruelly, making her believe that he'd come back to her when he never intended on it. It could be about a lover, or even a family member, or really any significant male in a girl's life.

    Like for me, it reminds me of my dad. He moved to California when I was 5, and he promised that he'd come back for me, but he never really did, and I'm in high school now.

    This song is really just about broken promises, and the fact that if a girl really loves a boy or her father or really anybody enough, she'll wait forever if she has to. And sometimes, she doesn't come to her senses soon enough.

    General Commentthis song is about a girl and a guy and he left her, and to make it easy for her to accept, he told her that he was leaving to find a better life for them both, but he tottally disapeard and she holds on to hope. but then she realizes he left for good

    General CommentThis is like the 1st time i heard this song and it is a good song i think it means a girl and a guy needed some time alone and he left forever and when she says If there was a Grand Canyon
    She could fill it up with the lies he's told her means he has lied to her alot and she misses him
