lyrics

Almost in Mexico

Wearily,
Pray tell me what you're hiding away
Wearily,
Share with me what you're hiding today

Are you drawn to the night?
Streetlights gleam from the tiny hamlet below.
Are you drawn to the sun?
On my left, rising higher, higher,
And on and on and on

Are you drawn to the moon, lady?
Phantasmic, illuminated, cacti loom
A little taller than I.
Am I asking too soon, baby?
I'm bound for Mexico
I've got to go.

Are you drawn to the night?
“Turn the lights off,” you whispered hot in my ear.
Are you drawn to the dark?
Cast my mind to the times we lost one another
'Neath a perfect sky
Are you drawn to the ocean, lady?
Pounding upon the sand,
I've nearly landed in a spiritual low.
Am I asking to soon, baby?
Almost in Mexico,
Don't let me go!

Wearily,
Pray tell me your biggest regret.
Wearily,
Share with me what you'd rather forget.
(Well) I didn't mean it
Dunno what happened
I was lonely and I found someone to rest with.

I didn't know her
I didn't love her
But I sacrificed the love I'd come to nest in.

And though the years trudge on
I find I still sing alone.
And though the years trudge on,
I find I still sing alone.

But are you drawn to the light?
I find life in the brightest secrets of night.
Are you drawn to the dark?
I find love when Sonoran skies have been painted
On and on and on.

Are you drawn to the ocean, lady?
Pounding upon the sand,
She understands me a little better than I.
Am I asking too soon, baby?
I'm fine, I feel alive, I share with you.
