Desert Rose – Sting

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

I dream of fire e lei e lei
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames e lei e lei
Her shadows play in the shape of a man’s desire

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

And now she turns e lei e lei
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns e lei e lei
I realise that nothing’s as it seems

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

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

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

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

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