Albuquerque

Albuquerque (3:21)

New Mexico is where I make my home
in the canyons where the stars are all I own
Leaving Santa Fe was not my plan
but only the cactus and coyotes
could understand her demands

I had a fear that you might hurt me
O I’ll be damned or Albuquerque
I had a fear that you might hurt me
O I’ll be damned or Albuquerque

Wondering if I hadn’t gone insane
‘cause I failed to see her teardrops
through the falling rain
The future started fading from our view
and I had to run to keep ahead of you and the pain

I had a fear that you might hurt me
O I’ll be damned or Albuquerque
I had a fear that you might hurt me
O I’ll be damned or Albuquerque

In the deserts of New Mexico
I swallow hard and I let go of you
Crazy love is never easy
it’s why I moved to Albuquerque
to start anew

Paradise is just a world away
with all the meanings that you placed
your faith in yesterday
Climbing down the mountain of our fate
If I learned it all I fear I learned it all too late

I had a fear that you might hurt me
O I’ll be damned or Albuquerque
I had a fear that you might hurt me
O I’ll be damned or Albuquerque
O I’ll be damned or Albuquerque
O I’ll be damned or Albuquerque
