Roman land
Of Roman sands
And Roman sons

As I watch the sun sink down
On the blood red edge
Of the blood red town
There are shadows for sale
On the edge of town

At the edge of the night
Is a darkness seen
From the side of the light
(From the side of the night)

And the winds blow round
This sleeping town
This sleeping town
This Roman land
Of Roman sands
And Roman sons

And it seems to me
That when I close my eyes
All the lights in the world
Go out

And the night passes by
And you whisper to me
A thousand lies

I stare in surprise
Towards the desert's
warm black
And the desert stirs
And the desert stares
back
With a thousand eyes
Piercing eyes
Ancient eyes

And I ask my lover
"Do you know
Where the desert roses
bloom and grow?"
