there is no arizona lyrics – jamie o’neal

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 told her
but they don’t exist, those dreams he sold her
she’ll wake up and find
there is no arizona

she got a post card with no return address
postmarked tombstone
it said i don’t know where i’m going 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 wake up and find
there is no arizona

each day the sun sets in the west
her heart sinks lower in her chest
and 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 wake up and find
there is no arizona

he promised her a new and better life.
