Desert Blue

(unreleased song, 1986)

Lyrics by Tori Amos

Verse 1:

You take my heart
each time you walk away
Left with my suitcase
and an empty day
Here we go

Torn apart from the life
I once held in my hand
Left with the memory
and a pocket full of sand
I'm so cold in this world
without your love

Chorus:

Babe, I'm coming home to you
But there are some things I have to do
Before I'm in your arms again
Babe, I'm coming home to you
'Cause love is only found in your
Desert blue
Desert blue

Verse 2:

Eyes that look through me
past my wild side
Constantly thirsty for the well
that never dries
Even rain cannot make me well again

Chorus:

Babe, I'm coming home to you
But there are some things I have to do
Before I'm in your arms again
Babe, I'm coming home to you
'Cause love is only found in your
Desert blue
Desert blue

Bridge:

And I lie on the floor
and pretend
You touch me, no one touches
like you can
When I start to beg for more
I wake up to the silence
and hear echoes of your lips
upon my skin

Chorus:

Babe, I'm coming home to you
But there are some things I have to do
Before I'm in your arms again
Babe, I'm coming home to you
'Cause love is only found in your
Desert blue
Desert blue
