In the dessert my campfire is gleaming,
From the hills comes the lonesome coyote’s song,
In my blankets I’m lying and dreaming
And needing you all the night long.
The heat of the day has departed,
Cooling winds bring the scent of the dew,
And the sands seem to cry broken hearted
Of my love, and the desert, and you.

CHORUS:
My love, and the desert and you
In a dream hold me all the night through,
And as long as stars shine you’ll be mine, you’ll be mine,
Till the tale of our love has come true.
I open my soul to its silence,
I life up my eyes to its blue
But I can’t seem to fathom the greatness of
My love, the desert and you.

Sweetest sounds seem to waken the darkness,
Filling all its great deepness with you,
Nightbirds call to their mates in the wildness.
And the hills echo all the night through,
The moon rises full in her glory,
Silver bright in the great sea of blue,
And the whole world seems telling the story
Of my love, the desert, and you.

MY LOVE AND THE DESERT AND YOU
