Song Description

Dynamic folk-rocker verses to mellow melodic choruses about a relationship falling apart due to the conflicting dreams of those involved.

Story Behind the Song

Written about a relationship I was in where my girlfriend wanted to go and live in Mexico.

Lyrics

MEXICO
By Ben Kyle

VERSE
She wants to go to Mexico
I guess I?m happy where I am
Been talking to a boy who?s ready to go
Says he?s got a master plan
I?ll be alright on my own
Don?t worry ?bout me
Pack your bags, your alibis
And do whatever?s gonna set you free

CHORUS
I never thought
I?d be living without you
There?s better things to do
Than doing something new
Just because it?s new
And it takes away the blues
For a week or two
Before it comes back to haunt you

VERSE
Thinking ?bout flying to the CotĂȘ d?Azur
Where the sun never ceases to shine
Where the water is green and the girls are blue
And the atmosphere is mine
I?ll sing my songs for a couple of francs
And maybe a bottle of wine
Drink in the romance of the Riviera dance
And the escape of time

CHORUS
I never thought
I?d be living without you
There?s better things to do
Than doing something new
Just because it?s new
And it takes away the blues
For a week or two
Before it comes back to haunt you

VERSE
She wants to go to Mexico
I guess I?m happy where I am
Been talking to a boy who?s ready to go
Says he?s got a master plan
I?ll be alright on my own
Don?t worry ?bout me
Pack your bags, your alibis
And do whatever?s gonna set you free
Thinking ?bout flying to the CotĂȘ d?Azur
Where the sun never ceases to shine
Where the water is green and the girls are blue
And the atmosphere is mine
I?ll sing my songs for a couple of francs
And maybe a bottle of wine
Drink in the romance of the Riviera dance
And the escape of time

CHORUS
I never thought
I?d be living without you
There?s better things to do
Than doing something new
Just because it?s new
And it takes away the blues
For a week or two
Before it comes back to haunt you

The cool light of a midwest winter and the warm glow of a mexican summer provide the backdrop for a song of love lost and a lesson learned.
