Blue Rodeo Arizona Dust Lyrics

Oh darling
That´s not the way it was planned
I know I kept you waiting
I screwed up my timing again

You told me the fears that were in your head
Sitting there cross-legged on my bed
Don´t you stay away long that´s what you said

So quickly
Summer ran right into spring
I see your face lying next to me
Just on the edge of my dreams

So tired I can´t explain
I lost something precious that was in my hand
Let it all slip away slow like grains of sand

If you´re through with me
I guess I´ll see
When I´m standing at your door
I finally got my balance back
To where I was before
And I´ve never been so lonely
So I´m singing a Skydiggers´ song
As I´m eating Arizona dust
And wishing I was home

It´s too hard to look back
When you don´t like what you see
Pictures of all the people I love
I let them down so casually

You told me all the fears that were in your head
Sitting there cross-legged on my bed
Don´t you stay away long that´s what you said

If you´re through with me
I guess I´ll see
When I´m standing at your door
I finally got my balance back
To where I was before
And I´ve never been so lonely
So I´m singing a Skydiggers´ song
As I´m eating Arizona dust
And wishing I was home

Oh darling
That´s not the way it was planned
I know I kept you waiting<!-- stopprint -->
