When I was a boy
The sun was burning my eyes
crossed out fortunes decide
she waits for me
living on the street
a ghost she starts with a sigh
crept in the colored sky of monet

ohhh, in time you'll feel it okay
and the flowers in her coffin say
New Mexico leave it alone

Keepin' with the trend
Our car quit near the end
Hands in pocket pretend
It's all okay
Desert in the wind
Two plums whisper and bend
Heartbeat and colors descend
They stay

ohhh, In time you'll feel it okay
And the flowers in her coffin say
New Mexico leave it alone
When time is slippin' away
and you're looking for another god
New Mexico will leave you alone
