Brett Dennen Desert Sunrise Lyrics

Last updated: 12/25/2006 10:00:00 AM

a desert sunrise, you warm my soul
painting me in shades of clay
covering me whole
and I'm a lizard, sunbathing in your radiance
Oh, I come out of hiding, so sweet
so sweet you are
if I could only have a taste
wrap my lips around your flavor
just because you are you
just because you are, so beautiful

and I've been waiting all this life
in the company of one
and I know I am young
but I don't want to be alone
if you could only just
consider the two of us
and I know darling
I could be so good to you

I see you rising
on the horizon
bringing light into the day
and I'm coasting on your rays
when I awoke, you spoke through the mist of the mystic bliss
casting shadows
on all my dismal yesterdays
do you remember that you told me, darling
that I was so real
I tell you all my tears for you are real
and we'll cross that bridge again some day
I know we will
I hope we will

desert sunset, a lullaby
if I could give it all to you
if you'd only let me try
sing so sweetly, it's my only wish
music drips from your lips like sweet sips of a summer's kiss
summer raindrops are precious, tongues twist

and I’ve been waiting all this life
in the company of one
and I know I am young
but I don’t want to be alone
if you could only just
consider the two of us
I know darling
I could be so good to you

I see you rising, on the horizon
bringing light into the day
and I’m coasting on your rays
when I awoke and you spoke through the mist of a mystic bliss
casting shadows
on all my dismal yesterdays
do you remember that you told me, darling
that I was so real
I tell you all my tears for you are real
we’ll cross that bridge again some day
I know we will
I hope we will

desert moonrise, into the night
before we lay our heads
I wish to walk under the splendorous starlight
sing so sweetly, it’s the sweetest sound
and I’ve become weak in the knees
and I drop down and kiss the ground
and all my cares lie far below
in this earth I wish to die
in this hearth my fire grows
