Desert Rose lyrics

I dream of rain oh ladyla
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in pain oh ladyla
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire oh yeah
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames oh ladyla
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose oh ladyyeah
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower oh ladyyeah
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns o ladyya
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns ladyya
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain oh ladyla
I dream of gardens in the desert sand I wake in pain oh ladyla
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain ladyla
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes, this rare perfume ladyla
Is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain ladyla
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in pain ladyla
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose ladyla
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower ladyla
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose ladyla
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower, this rare perfume
Is the sweet intoxication of the fall
