New Mexico (With Marion Doerflinger)

Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

I wish rocking on the front porch (chair version, not electric guitar version) when my friend and sometimes collaborator, Marion was walking by the house and I hollered over to him. He showed me a new lyric he'd written and told me to 'make some music if you feel like it.' An hour later we have this song. Fly by collaborations are fun. I need to sit on the porch more often, it seems.

Lyrics: 

It's not that I stopped loving you
I'm just tired of being hurt
And if you need to shed some tears
You can wipe them on my shirt

I need a lover with no hidden sting
Who won't inflict needless pain
Because my heart is warm and tender
I need to walk in the sun, sing in the rain

I'm bound for New Mexico
No other reason than I've never been
New faces and new places
New lovers and brand new friends
I'm bound for New Mexico

The Rockies smile down upon me
As I head to New Mexico
I walk for miles, I hitch a ride
As the desert calls to my soul

I need a lover with no hidden sting
Who won't inflict needless pain
Because my heart is warm and tender
I need to walk in the sun, sing in the rain

I'm bound for New Mexico
No other reason than I've never been
New faces and new places
New lovers and brand new friends
I'm bound for New Mexico
I'm bound for New Mexico

Sitting on the porch can be so inspiring! This is a lovely song.There's a longing in the lyric and I like how they're going to New Mexico...ready for new adventures. I enjoyed the guitar and vocal too, which comes across as sincere and hopeful. Very nice collab!

What a wonderful song. The poignancy in the lyric is palpable. The need to escape the pain of missing someone is so relatable and the details in the lyric add nuances and images that feel so fresh and vibrant. And your delivery makes it feel like the words and music are coming from your heart. Wonderfully written and beautifully put to music. Brilliant collaboration!

excellent lyric with music given them a sweet breezy treatment. some good neo front porch music coming out of you on this rocking chair collaboration. it really has the feeling of a friend passing by.
