By the time I get to Arizona
You'll be falling from my grace
Evergreens will lie about the season
As the daylight gives a chase
I would buy the planetarium
So no stars would fall
A sunset lost on me is not your loss
Cause your heart beats

And by the time you get the invitation
I'll be spoiling the surprise
And talking loud about forever
As the desert fingers rise
Can you hear the wheels sigh
Can winter lovers justify
This fogged up window green
And every breath held in between

Leaving home but being careful
Not to leave too much behind
Lighting out despite our saddest faces
We can be in four places at a time

Can you tell I've lost my intuition?
Like I need it anymore...
Six bits for facts and plastic bubbles
And I've never felt so sure
Bless the roadside
I'll keep you untied
So says the parking brake
The thing you miss is no mistake

Leaving home but being careful
Not to leave too much behind
Lighting out to find our finest graces
We can be in four places at a time

I had a plan
I had sense enough
That counted it like promises to myself
And after centuries
Of bad luck and open air
I found the one to keep

I found the one to keep (x5)

    General CommentWell first is the obvious imagery of the four corners... Arizona, Utah, New Mexico, Colorado... but like the four corners, he has found someone so perfect and unique that nothing compares... Thats what i get from it... Love the line "by the time you get the invitation i'll be spoiling the surprise"
