"Desert Rose" as written by and Mariani/johnson....
Desert Rose that dances, in heat of the sky,
I must pattern my life about you;
You can make the most when the waters run dry,
Look into the well deep inside you.

My Desert Rose,
Born are the few,
Always with me,
A vision of you.

Acrolith reflection, that floats through my dreams,
Arid is the dust underneath me;
Something far away, a mirage so it seems,
What I long to see, oh, could it be?

My Desert Rose,
Born are the few,
Always with me,
A vision of you.

My Desert Rose,
Born are the few,
Always with me,
A vision of you.

My Desert Rose,
Born are the few,
Always with me,
A vision of you.
Don't fade away.
Don't fade away.

    General CommentBlueguitarrock has the meaning covered.

    This track has two of the best (and most relaxing) guitar solos in the history of the existance of a music studio.

    Song MeaningPretty simple. There aren't many desert roses, they're rare things, like the people he loves. He never wants them to leave.
