Was a time I needed to get away
to find myself and lose my way
and forget what I have became
or where I could no longer stay
where the emptiness would just pass by
and the night would call my name

I lost love and love lost me
and I needed to feel what I use to be
blinded by a heart I couldn't see
that I needed to search for again
of what was lost inside of me

I kept driving on a lonesome highway
just to find myself on a dusty desert road
underneath that sky of New Mexico
where I finally had to let myself go
and let the sun light my day

I drove all night going nowhere
til I couldn't see the neon lights glimmer
and only the stars would shimmer
underneath a New Mexico sky

For once I was finally feeling free
with the calm of a desert wind
blowing carefree through my hair
where mountains around me took hold
and gave me a place of serenity
underneath a New Mexico sky
where I could spread my wings and fly
