Desert Rose Lyrics

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

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

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

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in pain
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
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

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

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

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the
fall

It's chasing a dream beyond reach but you just can't let go. Something or someone you want so much. I fell inlove with this song from the moment I heard it. And it keeps playing in my head...

A traveller found himself in a small Egyptian village, and while there he met a young woman, a dancer, who stole his heart and vanished. And so he sings.

Sweet desert rose, I think is how a man desires a woman who he knows will lead him astray. He wants her but there's a cost. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust with no eternal life. That's my thoughts...

Perhaps, the man knowing his own weakness is being seduced against the Truth. He understands the consequence and hence the torture. He wants to go home to be with Him, but fears he won't or can't.

A song about beauty. Sting was probably inspired by a beautiful Arabic woman. He made a song out of just one sample and it's great. Sting is a genious with a huge heart and a wonderful vocal.

a rose in the midle of a desert is like food for a starving man so he (the song writer) says that he dreams of this so called rose which is a girl who he is in love with!
