Russell Watson The Alchemist Lyrics

Last updated: 11/11/2004 10:00:00 AM

(Lyrics and music by Gary Barlow and Eliot Kennedy)

In the desert where almost nothing grows
you'll find the most beautiful rose
takes its name from Jericho
a miracle of life
I know a place I can't deny
where even a Jericho rose would die
The desert of your heart's where I am trying to survive

Can't control this
can't let go this
feeling is all I have
I know that...

I could build a tower out of steel and stone
but trying to build a bridge to you
is something I can't seem to do
If I could turn this dust to gold
you'd see it clearly
Trying to earn your love
is just like trying to learn the art of alchemy

The measure of a woman's heart
is just how deep and just how far
a secret can be kept
till it is only distant memory
My emotions fall on stony ground
I wear them just like hand-me-downs
because I know the secret is the love
that you have for me

I can't believe
can hardly breathe
without you by my side
I know that...
I could build a tower out of steel and stone….

How could life be the same
if I find I loved in vain
The dream I have every night
is to wake with you by my side

I could build a tower out of steel and stone….
