"Flower In The Desert (w-Jesse & Jim McReynolds)"

Sometimes I feel like a flower in the desert
Blooming alone like a motherless child
So far away in a prison of freedom
The only thing living for hundreds of miles.

I gave you all of the love in my heart
Just like a bouquet for your beautiful hand
And you stayed till its roots had grown deep as the ocean
And left it alone in a cold barren land.

I don't think again I will find room or reason
To thirst for the water or reach for the sky
I wish I was just a flower in the desert
That never knowed the meaning of hello or goodbye.

--- Instrumental ---

I nurtured and tended the faith I had in you
But the seeds of destruction were there from the start
Was I born to bloom and waste my sweet fragrance
On the desolate plain of your cold, cold heart.

I don't think again I will find room or reason
To thirst for the water or reach for the sky
I wish I was just a flower in the desert
That never knowed the meaning of hello or goodbye.

I don't think again I will find room or reason
To thirst for the water or reach for the sky
I wish I was just a flower in the desert
That never knowed the meaning of hello or goodbye.

That never knowed the meaning of hello or goodbye.
