Arizona (4:50)

Cover of Because of the Times

From Because of the Times and 3 other releases

Caleb’s ( lead vocals, rhythm guitar) answer when he was asked why he had written a song about arizona…”I hold that place close to my heart. I love the desert and always have. But the story behind that song is kind of bad. I can’t really get into it. It’s about when Nathan and I went to Arizona, and…well, we had quite a few different substances in us, and we decided to go to this brothel. I guess I am telling you now, aren’t I? This really is a heartbreaker. We walked in and I looked around and there was this one girl who was so beautiful that all I could think was, ‘’What happened in her life that could bring her here?’’ as opposed to me thinking, ‘’Yeah! I’ll take that one!’‘”

    My face is laying on the pavement, tasting something awful. I hate when that happens.. Awesome tune, and for me Caleb has the best voice in the universe, no doubt.. It's hard to understand how it is possible

    I thought this was a good song on a great album for a long time. Then I read the comments here, how people loved it and thought it was the best, and I really listened. The lyrics, the guitars, the bass, the feeling, everything just fell into place, and I understood. One of their absolute best songs.
