Desert Song Lyrics

Desert Song - Alice Smith

 

The time has come

 

For me to start packing in

 

I'm folding the shores of my life

 

Into valises

 

I can't stand

 

This desert heat no more

 

I'm going away

 

I'm going away

 

I waited too long

 

To catch your signal

 

I counted the numbers the letters the days

 

Something tells me you're

 

You're not coming

 

I've got to go away

 

I'm going away

 

Now I'm writing you a letter

And I'm making it long

 

Now I'm breathing and I'm bleeding

And the pages are torn

 

Now I'm writing you to tell you

 

I may go missing and lost

 

The sand covers my face

 

The sand covers my face (covers my face)

 

The sand covers my face (covers my face)

 

(covers my face)

 

My mama said

 

"Life is for living

 

If you ain't happy honey

 

Go out and reinvent yourself"

 

The desert is good

 

The desert is dark

 

I've got to go away

 

Said I'm going away

 

Now I'm writing you a letter

And I'm making it long

 

Now I'm breathing and I'm bleeding

 

And the pages are torn

 

Yeah I'm writing you to tell you

I may go missing and lost

 

The sand covers my face

 

The sand covers my face (covers my face)

 

The sand covers my face (covers my face)

 

The sand
