Mexico

lyrics

Arrogant for most of my life.
Lonesome in recent times.
My favorite photograph, refrigerator.
Your smile hides behind the lens.

I watched you, I watched you
slowly, slowly take the bends.
I watched you, I watched you
slowly, slowly take the bends.

We saw Lucero in Kentucky.
I said I bought your ticket, but it was free.
So arrogant, so lonesome.
I felt the weight of the phrases and you sang along.
We watched Ben Nichols sing about his favorite girls.

Drips from the pot and a half cup floats away.
Away from the path I swore I paved.
And I can tell your lips are purposefully pursed.
A heat radiates and I'm not sure
If it was so damn convenient that my girl was in Mexico.

So I could feel like some fucking Jesus when I walked home.
So I could feel like some kind of savior when I said "No."
