One Night in the Desert
Song (1994), from The China Box
 Buy this recording (MP3) $0.99 

One night in the desert

Visions in our heads

One light in the window

Danger in our beds

 

The sun slipped down behind

The outline of the dune

The fire had gone to dust

There we'd be passing soon

 

Through one night in the desert

Visions in the sands

One light in the window

Danger in our hands

 

Will stars illuminate

The swiftness of the steel?

Or with a hand, a gasp,

The secret be revealed?

 

This one night in the desert

Wishes in the sands

One light in the window

Murder on our hands

 

Shouldn't we cry?

Shouldn't we ride?

What have we done?

What have we tried?

 

The sun rose up above

The outline of the dune

We smelled the scent of night

A lifeless, dry perfume

 

This one night in the desert

Wishes in our beds

One light in the window

Murder on our heads
