We met in the desert, in a country that's not mine
You with your dark eyes and that long strong jaw line
But I know you, I know you, I know you from far away
I can see that you know me, but you ain't gonna say it

We go exploring through ruins of the old mines
They ain't got no guardrails here so we crawl up and drop rocks inside
It's a long time, it's a long time, before we hear them make a sound
And you look at me and touch my cheek and say my name out loud

And I know you, and I know you since forever
I know you from afar
And I know you, and I know you since forever
I know you from afar

You read the paper, my head rests on your thighs
You start talking politics and I close your mouth with mine
And the light in me is burning, it's brighter than the sun
It is feeding off the light in you, they want so badly to be one

And I know you, and I know you since forever
I know you from afar
And I know you, and I know you since forever
I know you from afar

I cross the border, I cross over eight state lines
I see the same strip malls but I'm seeing them through your eyes
And I love you, I love you, but I will not bring you with me
You will not leave the desert so you visit me in dreams

And I know you, and I know you since forever
I know you from afar
And I know you, and I know you since forever
I know you from afar....
