Went to the desert
On a mission
To have a vision
Or write a song
I left real early
I left my cell phone
I took the Prius
It gets good mileage
Something's gonna happen
To change my world

I'm on the highway
I pass the windmills
I pass the outlet stores
Soon I'll find the sacred places
I've been searching for

Wild horses
Hawks circling
Gram Parsons, inspiration
Big cactus
Coyotes
Something's gonna happen
To change my world

When I got there
To the motel
It was different
Than on the website
It was crowded
Mostly seniors
There was a bar band playing "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown"
So I went hiking
It was so barren
And it got too hot, so I turned around (Ooh)
Went to the main drag
I saw the statue
Of Sonny Bono
And he was smiling
Something's gonna happen
To change my world

Wild horses
Hawks circling
Gram Parsons, inspiration
Big cactus
Coyotes
Something's gonna happen
To change my world

Back on the highway
Wave to the windmills
The setting sun in my eyes
Drive to the ocean
That's where we come from
I'll throw my troubles to the rising tide
Something's gonna happen
To change my world

Seahorses
Sharks circling
Brian Wilson, inspiration
Smart dolphins
Waves crashing
Something's gonna happen
I said something's gonna happen
(Ooh)
I said something's gonna happen
To change my world
