Arizona Highway

© Words and music by Ray Scudero. All rights reserved.

There’s a chill in the wind on this Arizona highway,
And the sun is slowly setting and I still ain’t got a ride.
There’s a thousand miles behind, more than a thousand still before me,
And the taillights in the distance slowly fade into the night.

And it’s one more time to New York City.
I can’t say that I miss you but I still can’t stay away.
And it’s one more time to New York City,
Then I’m off and flying far, far away.

Ah, you can’t walk away from a place that keeps you running
On a road that takes forever when there’s nothing else to do.
All the distance and the miles and the memories between us
Are like signposts on the shoulder of the road that takes you through.

And it’s one more time to New York City.
I can’t say that I miss you but I still can’t stay away.
Only one more time to New York City,
Then I’m off and flying far, far away.

I don’t know what I’ll say when I call you on the phone:
“Just arrived a little while ago with no place to stay,
And maybe there’s a place where I could sleep in your apartment.
I’ll be there until tomorrow and then be on my way.”

And it’s one more time to New York City.
I can’t say that I miss you but I still can’t stay away.
And it’s one more time to New York City,
Then I’m off and flying far, far away.

Ah, the wind in your face on this Arizona highway
Makes your eyes run with tears as the cars are passing by.
It’s a good enough excuse to let you cry while no one’s looking,
While you’re waiting for tomorrow to bring sunlight to the sky.

And it’s one more time to New York City:
I can’t say that I miss you but I still can’t stay away.
Only one more time to New York City,
Then I’m off and flying far, far away.
Only one more time to New York City,
I can’t say that I miss you but I still can’t stay away.
Only one more time to New York City,
Then I’m off and flying far, far away.
Then I’m off and flying far, far away.
