about

Picture: Albuquerque, New Mexico, 1998.

lyrics

It was a dream! Could not foresee.
When I drove all the way from Tempe to Albuquerque.
Had a purpose! That was to see.
Mika Miko then I found you dancing right next to me.
Talked after show! Till club emptied.
You were so shy even asking for hugs wasn’t easy.

I took a chance and asked if you would like to stay
In touch and hey maybe visit me some day.
You said of course and had the cutest idea.
Let’s mail each other letters like they used to.

First one you sent confirmed
You’re coming to my town!
Could barely read your child-like handwrite.
But so sweet of you to take the time.

Had to respond! And yes quickly.
Did not bother to mention my dorm room was a small thing.
Rode the bus from! Albuquerque.
Took the light rail to Tempe where we sat under the trees.
At ASU! As the sun set.
So many birds singing like it’s islands cross the sea!

We went to my dorm and we sat on bed’s edge.
Played Pavement records and I wondered what’s next.
I said I would never make you sleep on floors.
Two on bed made for one, was inevitable.

First kiss and I knew what I’d have to do.
I’m going to your town!
Soothing our missing with more letters.
Each one sweeter than the last until…

New Mexico! I’m here again.
You find it enchanting but it’s mystery to me.
I’d rather be! In, say, Paris.
Still we had a fun time but began to feel the strain
Of our distance! Where does this end?
Got two more years college then I’m sure not moving here.

Knew you would pass through to visit family.
For Christmas but why’d you have to show early.
Studying for finals, pretend to be happy.
Two weeks after leaving now here’s the deal.

Make a phone call not a letter to tell you.
You’re not coming to my town!
