If you’re still repeating Logan Mizes older songs, know that you are not alone.
But Logan just released another single to add to the mix, and it kind of crept under the radar.
Titled “Albuquerque,” it’s a break-up ballad guaranteed to tug at your listener’s ear with a catchy metaphor that compares betting at roulette to betting on love.
At this point, the old boy has made a name for himself for sensational breakup ballads, but this is another of Logan Mize’s specialties. He opens his single with a slow rhythm and a casino setting:
“But I put my savings in a game of roulette,
Or some old red number I got twenty eight
That’s the risk you take when you go all-in…”
When your wheelhouse is playing, you know that the number 28 is no good if you bet on red at roulette. So if the sad pacing doesn’t give them away, the narrator has simply lost everything on a bad bet.
Unfortunately, that’s not the only losing bet he’s making in Albuquerque.
In the chorus it is revealed that he “gambled, laid everything at her feet” which also implied that he also got involved in love, and again it didn’t turn out the way he had hoped.
And with the combined loss of his life savings and his wife, the city of Albuquerque has truly taken everything from him.
Yes, I risked laying it all at her feet
There goes Albuquerque and takes everything away from me
And if that haunting line isn’t enough, this song has some really riveting and heartbreaking breakup lyrics. Check out these:
“For there is a mountain that I will never climb,
It put a cave in my heart that stretched deep and wide
Oh what I would give to hold her
But all my pride and closure is piled up,
The one thing I can’t get over…”
This heartthrob is one that is guaranteed to stack with “Better away” and Gone Goes On and On.
