​The Next Plane To New Mexico

This song is by Kevin Johnson and appears on the album Journeys (1978) and on the album Profile (1980).

Take the next plane down to New Mexico
And I'll be waiting here in Alamagordo, I'll have the pickup packed up and ready to go
To a somewhere, south of nowhere
Little place I know. There are so many times I've been trying to say
All the so many things I've been dying to say
And there's so many feelings I'm feeling today
And I'm calling to say I've gotta take you away Susannah

It's been a long time
And I know this is the wrong time
For you and me to be
Trying desperately to be together
It's the wrong time
And I'm not trying to say it's right
But I'd rather share in the trouble and strife
Rather share in a part of your life Than to let you go forever

So take the next plane down to New Mexico
And I'll be waiting here in Alamagordo
I'll have the pickup packed up and ready to go
To a somewhere south of nowhere little place I know
We've been lying and trying our best to go through
With all the sensible things we're expected to do
But all the lying and the trying and starting anew
Whatever I do
I've just gotta be with you Susannah

There are times girl
When it seems as though the whole world Is there between us
And doesn't mean us to be together again
But then there are times girl
To try and push the world away
And try to live a few precious moments
'Cause we know these precious moments May never come again

So take the next place down to New Mexico
And I'll be waiting here in Alamagordo
I'll have the pickup packed up and ready to go To a somewhere south of nowhere little place I know
There are so many times I've been trying to say
All the so many things I've been dying to say
And there's so many feelings I'm feeling today
And I'm calling to say
I've gotta take you away Susannah
