BEST NEW SONGS: ARIZONA - CROSS MY MIND

Arizona - Cross My Mind

You’ve gotta love the backstory of New Jersey trio A R I Z O N A (these dudes create their songs in a mobile study they made out of an old Toyota), and their music is even better. Their latest offering, “Cross My Mind,” has the feel of an instant pop classic. This coming on the heels of “I Was Wrong,” a track with over 16 million streams, and you begin to realize that A R I Z O N A is a band on the verge of taking over 2016.

“Cross My Mind” is another song about a tarnished relationship that feels like it would fit in perfectly on a collection of 80’s pop ballads. In fact, there’s an immediate familiarity to this cut, as if it’s just one of those ones you’ve always known. In a statement about the song, the band had this to say: “Music allows us to be comfortable with our imperfections, and ‘Cross My Mind’ is a song that captures the dichotomy of our nature versus our intentions.”

And there you have it. The only thing left to do now is listen to this song.  

 

A R I Z O N A “CROSS MY MIND”

“Cross My Mind” is taken from A R I Z O N A’s forthcoming debut album. Be on the look out for that this fall, in the meantime here are the lyrics for A R I Z O N A “Cross My Mind”:

i know i haven't been perfect, but give it some time
there's not a single day goes by where you don't cross my mind
and we spend our lives looking for things we can't find
oh, but not a single day goes by where you don't cross my mind

all the days spent on my mind
all the times that i'd say that we'll be together, we'll be together, oh
all the ways to see through my heart
i know the good intentions, they won't be lost forever, won't be lost forever

and i know i haven't been perfect, but give it some time
there's not a single day goes by where you don't cross my mind
and we spend our lives looking for things we can't find
oh, but not a single day goes by where you don't cross my mind

all the hours spent on the line
all the times that you'd say that i never listen, i never listen
through the conversations we've had 'til 4 am
you say you want something different, want something different

and i know i haven't been perfect, but give it some time
there's not a single day goes by where you don't cross my mind
and we spend our lives looking for things we can't find
oh, but not a single day goes by where you don't cross my mind
but not a single day goes by where you don't cross my mind
not a single day goes by where you don't cross my mind
but not a single day goes by where you don't cross my mind
i know i haven't been perfect, but give it some time
there's not a single day goes by where you don't cross my mind
and we spend our lives looking for things we can't find
oh, but not a single day goes by where you don't cross my mind
not a single day goes by where you don't cross my
oh, not a single day goes by where you don't cross my mind
