I’m near, so near to life’s / Last horizon bend / Together, hand in hand / Walk me to the end
I’m sorry, Love, I am / More than words can say / And though it breaks my heart / Love, I cannot stay
She’s here, she’s here again / Beckoning me on / And when I reach for her / She’s already gone
I’m near, so near to her / Never quite in reach / I’m learning of a love / Loss alone can teach
She dances with the dawn / Dances through the day / Until the setting sun / Dances her away
Daylight fills the desert skies / And lifts the nightmare from my eyes / And shimmering on the distant sand / My love is holding out her hand
Wild as I was, I never knew / I’d run the risk of losing you / I’ve searched for you both low and high / I’ll search till desert turns to sky
I’m as empty as the desert plain / And I pray for her love like I pray for the rain / And, there, in the shimmering morning sun / She dances again with the new horizon (Just posted this without the final line by mistake.)
My hope awakens with the sun / And shines on all I should’ve done / And truth greets me like desert rain / To bring our love to life again
The stars will light your darkest hour / The cactuses will come to flower / The desert hides a secret spring / There’s hope to find in everything
I’m as empty as the desert plain / And I pray for her love like I pray for the rain / And, there, in the shimmering morning sun / She dances again with the new horizon
Her eyes were warm, her words were soft, she smiled with ageless youth / I ran away in fear of goodness, beauty and the truth
I told her all that I had done was all that I could do / And she looked at me in silence as I told her nothing new
I’m waiting for the daylight and I’m waiting for her word / And I’m waiting for a pardon like a begging gallows bird
I lied like men before me, men I knew would die alone / Still, I left my simple garden for a desert made of stone
She said, “I love you, darling, with an undivided heart / But you tore your love in two and gave me just one part”
I dream about her singing in the house we never had / The children outside playing with the man that they call Dad
Once there was a garden that we lived safe within / Now I walk this wilderness in garments made of skin
Silence settles on my tongue, it’s shape falls like her name / It sits like ashes fallen from a fading phoenix flame
She didn’t weep or say a word, she didn’t pace the floor / She packed my bags and stood there, calm, beside the bedroom door
No one here to follow me and no one by my side / Once there was a girl who was, but, once, alas, I lied
Out here a man must empty his heart of mortal hope / And plan to meet the place beyond the scaffold and the rope
I look into my future with my ageing eyes of sin / And death is there and dancing with a flaming violin
I’m riding to the edge of night, upon this dusty lake / I’m riding to the edge of night, till dawn or I will break
I walked a world of sand and stone, I walked a fiery way / I knelt before a silent sky and asked it how to pray
We lay there in your garden, the flowers all in bloom / You promised, then, to be my bride, and I to be your groom
I came into the desert to cast aside my name / But I still I hear it calling on a thousand tongues of flame
I search among the shadows, my sense is worn thin / I swing upon the gates of death and beg to be let in
The angel of forgiveness and the devil of my pride / Fought me in the desert and I fought on either side
They say the line of good and bad runs through every heart / God knows I need to mend it but the devil wants his part
I dig a hole of sand and stones, beside the thorny trees / My hope as dry as desert bones, as dust upon the breeze
Daylight fills the sky, night begins to fade / The future calls me to confront the choices that I’ve made
You slept, as I crept out / Now, we’re both alone / You’d offered up your heart / I gave you a stone
I’ve prayed so hard for life / Death I sought the same / A flaming, holy light / Burns my face with shame
I’ve longed, through desert nights / For your smiling face / An unforgiven man / Longing for your grace
But I still think of you / Though we’re far apart / You are the desert spring / Deep within my heart
Sand shifts beneath my feet / Slowing every tread / And scattered all around / Memories that I’d fled
The desert stretches wide / Stars stretch out above / I hear a voice inside: / Come, come back, my love
This land of thorns and scars / Sand and sun-bleached bone / Surrounds me with myself / Hell: myself, alone.
One star above me shines / Bright with memory / I hear the bells, they chime: / Grace, rise up to be
I left my love a note / All our tears shed: / ‘Your life’s a tapestry / Mine’s a tangled thread’
An unforgiven man / Longing to be free / I’ll keep on moving on / Till I’m free from me
You’re far, so far from me / Fixed just like a star / Your light, your memory / Fills this old guitar
I’m far, so far from home / Filled with old regret / An unforgiven man / Longing to forget
My sins have followed me / Though I’ve tried to hide / My desert’s not out there / Mine is deep inside
My love is calling me / Look out for the light / Your unforgiven sins / Are the desert night
I am not here alone / Here, I cannot hide / My unforgiven sins / Shadow every side
The desert chorus sings / Songs as old as stone / The desert chorus sings / Don’t come out alone
It’s the song of the unforgiven, it’s the chorus of the night / It’ll sing you through the desert on your way to make things right
A man can fill a desert, if he has enough regret / And he goes there unforgiven and unable to forget
The road toward forgiveness is a long one headed back / My heart is full of fearful hope, I tread a darkened track
‘Who are you?’, the creature sang, ‘You are not what you seem’. / ‘Nor are you’, I whispered low, and rode into a dream.
I’ve travelled light, I’ve travelled long, my guitar on my back / a desert-dwellin’ Orpheus, well off the beaten track
Melodies, memories, rise from the blue / Ol’ desert trickster he’s singin’ ‘bout you
Beneath the unforgiving sun (Heigh, heigh, heigh-ho) Under the unforgetting moon (Heigh-ho)
I looked for nothing and for no-one (Heigh, heigh, heigh-ho) I longed for an indifferent land (Heigh-ho)
I looked for nothing and for no-one (Heigh, heigh, heigh-ho) I longed for an indifferent land (Heigh-ho) But, still, your memory is reaching (Heigh, heigh, heigh-ho) Out across the desert sand (Heigh, heigh, heigh-ho)
Your name is drowned out by the noise / As smoke can kill a flame / And play can die beneath its toys / And truth can choke on truthful shame. /
It's hard to find an honest liar / Who tells untruths and knows he lies. / It's hard to live the heres and nows, / Not wishing things were otherwise. /
I looked for beauty / You for truth / We lay beneath / Your lover's roof / And stole a moment / Back from youth / And forever / Back from time. /
May destiny dance on the grave of doubt / May love run on, when luck runs out.
The light is winning, the beating fades / My love returns, I'm unafraid.
One final bet, an outside chance / a leap of faith in destiny's dance.
What does the future have in store / My past is beating at my door
Fall to my knees and start to pray / Some prices money cannot pay
Needs must when the devil drives / I've sold my soul to stay alive
Lived my life in the Devil's debt / Lost my wife to drunken bet
