I was stung by the sting of the worst of bees in New Orleans
I was scared and unprepared, but right there I was happy
The warm sunset I won't forget, you took my breath,
It was so perfect
The journey of you and and me started in New Orleans

We got our best quality for less in Texas
Two sunsets straight,
We learned it's a state you don't mess with
Papa Johns with the TV on, back when Summer just begun
My few but favourite memories of Texas

I wore a cowboy hot, reading a country map in New Mexico
We had a think, we lost silence but I'm the co-pilot,
That's the best for you, you know
Half way down the interstate,
You left your phone at that picnic place
I kept a cool face while you were irate in New Mexico

And maybe one day you'll come to my town singing
"I love you oh oh oh"
I'll look at you with that same old smile and I'll say
"Where do you gonna go? oh oh oh"

I saw the world behind the wheel,
I learnt how to feel in Arizona
I saw the stars, felt the change, you fell hard,
I felt the same and I showed you
The campsite or maybe the Inn,
I don't know where this one begins
I just know my heart lies beneath the stars in Arizona

And maybe one day you'll come to my town singing
"I love you oh oh oh"
I'll look at you with that same old smile and I'll say
"Where do you gonna go? oh oh oh"

I guess I can't sing about all the states
But in your country, they abbreviate
I went to FL and GA and LA and TX
And NM and AZ and should I say Z?
CO and KS and MO and IL and IN, Ohio and WV
I went to VA and NC and MD
And DE and PA and NA and NYC

I last saw you by the lake,
Was good to see your face in Pennsylvania
Was such a beautiful day
When you tried to explain all the truth and that, y'know?
I told you I'd never miss the chance under any single circumstance
Again I'd see your face in the United States of America
