Desert Heat

When a heart is parched and stops looking for water
When a heart is restless and stops looking for sleep
When a heart is cold and it can't find shelter
No love brings laughter, no pain makes it weep

And it's a desert heart that don't mind the sun
It's a desert rain that seldom comes
There's life in the desert that you never see
Heart like a desert waiting patiently
Heart like a desert waiting patiently

When it lies in the seed the flower dreams in peace
Asleep in the earth until the tender hand
Of rain like a lover come to bring release
And sun like a kiss upon the desert sand


after the rain the desert comes to life
everything hidden comes to light
in the space of a day it blooms and dies
til grace like a blanket comes with the night
