Desert Sun

(STEVE DAFOE 2004)

( COPYRIGHTED)


Chorus
G Fmaj7
And the desert sun; it burns so high.
G Fmaj7
And I see your face; in the glowing sky.
G Fmaj7
For your burning love; I have to try.
G Fmaj7
To push on through; to find out why.

Verse A
Cmaj7
Went out for a walk,
Fmaj7
Needed time to think...
Cmaj7
Tired of all the talk.
Fmaj7
Needed my water drink.

Chorus
G Fmaj7
And the desert sun; it burns so high.
G Fmaj7
And I see your face; in the glowing sky.
G Fmaj7
For your burning love; I have to try.
G Fmaj7
To push through; to find out why.

Verse B
Cmaj7
The sand is red hot.
Fmaj7
Sizzles, just like your love.
Cmaj7
Good at this, I'm not.
Fmaj7
In the desert of love.





Chorus
G Fmaj7
And the desert sun; it burns so high.
G Fmaj7
And I see your face; in the glowing sky.
G Fmaj7
For your burning love; I have to try.
G Fmaj7
To push through; to find out why.

Verse C
Cmaj7
The sun sets lower.
Fmaj7
Saying it's good night.
Cmaj7
Time to go to her.
Fmaj7
Time to make it right.

Chorus
G Fmaj7
And the desert sun; it burns so high.
G Fmaj7
And I see your face; in the glowing sky.
G Fmaj7
For your burning love; I have to try.
G Fmaj7
To push through; to find out why.
