One and one-half wandering Jews
Free to wander wherever they choose Are traveling together
In the Sangre de Christo The Blood of Christ Mountains
Of New Mexico On the last leg of a journey They started a long time ago
The arc of a love affair Rainbows in the high desert air Mountain passes Slipping into stone Hearts and bones Hearts and bones Hearts and bones  Thinking back to the season before Looking back through the cracks in the door
Two people were married The act was outrageous The bride was contagious She burned like a bride These events may have had some effect On the man with the girl by his side
The arc of a love affair His hands rolling down her hair
Love like lightning shaking till it moans Hearts and bones Hearts and bones Hearts and bones Hearts and bones 
Whoa whoa whoa
She said why?
Why don't we drive through the night We'll wake up down in Mexico Oh I
I don't know nothin' about nothin' About Mexico
And tell me why
Why won't you love me
For who I am Where I am

He said 'cause that's not the way the world is baby
This is how I love you baby
This is how I love you baby

One and one-half wandering Jews Returned to their natural coasts To resume old acquaintances Step out occasionally And speculate who had been damaged the most
Easy time will determine if these consolations
Will be their reward
The arc of a love affair Waiting to be restored You take two bodies and you twirl them into one Their hearts and their bones
And they won't come undone Hearts and bones Hearts and bones Hearts and bones Hearts and bones
