U2 cover



Desert sky
dream beneath a desert sky
rivers run, but soon run dry
we need new dreams tonight

desert rose
dreamed I saw a desert rose
dress torn in ribbons and in bows
like a siren she calls to me

sleep comes like a drug
in God's country
sad eyes, crooked crosses
in God's country

set me alight
we'll punch a hole right through the night
everyday the dreamers die
to see what's on the other side

she is liberty
she comes to rescue me
hope, faith, her vanity
the greatest gift is gold

sleep comes like a drug
in God's country
sad eyes, crooked crosses
in God's country

naked flame
she stands with a naked flame
I walk with the sons of Cain
burned by the fire of love
burned by the fire of love
