              I dream of fire
                               Those dreams that tie two hearts that will never die
                                                         And near the flames
                               The shadows play in the shape of the mans desire

            This desert rose
                             Whose shadow bears the secret promise
            This desert flower
                             No sweet perfume that would torture you more than this

        And now she turns
                       This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
                       This fire burns
        I realize that nothings as it seems

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

          I dream of rain
                           I lift my gaze to empty skies above
                                             I close my eyes
                           The rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of love

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

                Sweet desert rose
                                     Whose shadow bears the secret promise
                This desert flower
                                     No sweet perfume that would torture you more than this

      Sweet desert rose
                           This memory of hidden hearts and souls
      This desert flower
                           This rare perfurme is the sweet intoxication of love

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