  1. Dust Devil

From the recording Dust Devil

Nominated for Best Adult Contemporary Song by the New Mexico Music Awards in 2020, Dust Devil tells the story of a dust whirlwind, a fairly common occurrence in the New Mexico desert, personified as a destructive female. After getting caught in one a couple of years back and having to replace two windows in my car this song practically wrote itself!

Lyrics

Dust Devil - Anne-Marie Lax

She blew in on the southern wind
You never could've seen her comin'
So distracted by her mystery
Devastated by the impact of your destiny

Appeared so sweet, full of innocence
You thought she was so funny, in your defense
Now she's different than she was before
Revealing her deception in a category four

Dust Devil
A world of trouble
Left your life in such a whirl
'Cause there’s bad in every girl
Dust Devil, Dust Devil

She hides in a storm of all her lies
A mistress of disorder and a master of disguise
Well, what's her story? Heaven only knows
What kind of dirty secrets will she disclose?

Dust Devil
A world of trouble
Left your life in such a whirl
'Cause there’s bad in every girl
Dust Devil
Such a rebel
Shattered all your dreams
While unraveling at the seams
Dust Devil, Dust Devil

She might be the little girl who was never understood
But she was always known for being bad at being good

When she disappeared on the Northern breeze
She took your pride down to its’ knees
Your mind in tatters and your soul laid bare
Alone and lost, a million miles from nowhere

Dust Devil
A world of trouble
Left your life in such a whirl
'Cause there’s bad in every girl
Dust Devil
Such a rebel
Shattered all your dreams
While unraveling at the seams
Dust Devil, Dust Devil
Dust Devil, Dust Devil
Dust Devil, Dust Devil
