"There Is No Arizona" is a debut song co-written and recorded by Australian country music artist Jamie O'Neal. It was released in August 2000 as the first single from O'Neal's Shiver album. The song reached Number One on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts. It was written by O'Neal, Lisa Drew and Shaye Smith.
The narrator talks about how a man he sets off to Arizona, and promises to send for the woman when he has things set up. Time goes by and she gets one postcard with no return address then nothing more. She tries to hold out hope that he'll come back or send for her but finally, as her friends keep asking her when she going, she realizes that the dream of having a better life with him in Arizona is never going to come true. She realizes that the wonderful, love-filled Paradise she had hoped for was just a lie, or, to be generous, a pipe dream, the man told her when he left her. Her vision of Arizona does not exist.
The music video was directed by Lawrence Carroll and premiered in mid 2000.
"There Is No Arizona" debuted at number 69 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks for the chart week of August 12, 2000.
