[Dm]I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand      [Am7]        [Dm]

I wake in pain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand   [Am7]             [Dm]
[Dm]I dream of fire
These dreams are tied to a horse that will ne[Am7]ver tire
A[Dm]nd in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's [Am7]desire       [Dm]
[F]This desert rose
[Am7]Each of her veil's a secret promise
[Csus2]This desert flower
[Bb]No sweet perfume ever to[A5]rtured me more than this

A[Dm]nd as she turns
This way she moves in the logi[Am7]c of all [Dm]my dreams
[Dm]This fire burns
I realize that nothi[Am]ng's as it seems

[Dm]I dream of rain
[Csus2]I dream of gardens in the desert sand
[Bb]I wake in pain
I dream of love as time runs throug[G5]h my [A5]hand
[F]I dream of rain
[Am]I lift my gaze to empty skies above
[Csus2]I close my eyes, this rare perfume
Is th[Bb]e sweet intoxication[A5] of her love

Sweet desert rose

This memory of Eden haunts us all

This desert flower, this rare perfume

Is the sweet intoxication of the fall
