Desert Rose

Sting, Brand new Day ’99

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this
I close my eyes, this rare perfume
Is the sweet intoxication of her love
This desert rose
I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in pain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand
Sweet desert rose
