the tune is just the most perfect and beauteous melody…
I so, so, enjoyed recording this….

the lyrics and ‘feel’ of the song are so apt, as I’m living in the UAE at present.

No rights reserved. This is a cover… pure and simply, the joy of singing.

Desert Rose

(Lyrics)

I dream of rain ye….yeyi yele…
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in pain ye….yeyi yele…
I dream of love as time runs through my hand ye….yeyi yele…
I dream of fire ye….yeyi yele…
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames ye….yeyi yele…
Her shadows play in the shape of a man’s desire ye….yeyi yele…
This desert rose ye….yeyi yele…
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower ye….yeyi yele…
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this!
And as she turns ye….yeyi yele…
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns ye….yeyi yele…
I realize that nothing’s as it seems!
I dream of rain ye….yeyi yele…
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in pain ye….yeyi yele…
I dream of love as time runs through my hand
I dream of rain ye….yeyi yele…
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love oh…..
oh monono……hmmm….
I dream of rain ye….yeyi yele…
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in pain ye….yeyi yele…
I dream of love as time runs through my hand!
Sweet desert rose ye….yeyi yele…
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower ye….yeyi yele…
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this!
Sweet desert rose…
