"Well I've been thinking about you, and I wish you the best
But every night I go to sleep, I miss you a little less
And still somehow I love you more with each new day
So I thought I'd write you, yeah, I thought I'd send my new address
I've been staring at your picture that's sitting here on my desk
And I thought you might be wondering if I'm ok

I'm alive and I'm living
In a place where the world's crust has shifted
And the stars in the Milky Way, they're giving a party for New Mexico
Yes, I've come to the desert just to find my way to forever
And you are so welcome here, if you're ever in New Mexico

So I want to thank the One who leads us, for the way that He has led
For the times we've spent together, and for the times we ain't seen yet
And still somehow this is a path we must both walk alone
And we can't measure the distance, but we'll treasure every step
And I know His love will give us the strength we need to press on
So let's hold onto Him, and He will show us our way home

I'm alive and I'm living
In a place where the world's crust has shifted
And the stars in the Milky Way, they're giving a party for New Mexico
Yes, I've come to the desert just to find my way to forever
And you are so welcome here, if you're ever in New Mexico

And the stars can be so bright, the air's so thin
And as I'm looking out tonight, I think about you
Looking for Him

I'm alive and I'm living
In a place where the world's crust has shifted
And the stars in the Milky Way, they're giving a party for New Mexico
Yes, I've come to the desert just to find my way to forever
And you are so welcome here, if you're ever in New Mexico
Yes, you are so welcome here, if you're ever in New Mexico"
