How long, its seems I've waited
I've walked a thousand,
To see you to heaven,
To see you, where heather grows
And I know - know you divide
Between bringing in the light,
playing in the height of the sky
With sweet hope,
and playing in the pools
Where the broken lines with you above me
You take me on your shoulder,
Sahara Mahala

CHORUS
And I know I want to be with you all of my days,
On hallowed ground
But, honey every time we go to gaol,
the seeds of doubt come creeping
Just keep moving, on hallowed ground

Oh, got a feeling,
it seems I've waited to see
the moment of completeness
Sahara Mahala, Sahara Mahala

CHORUS

And I get this in winter
Get these visions, visions
I get the feel you can't kill these visions

CHORUS

    My InterpretationSahara Mahala, essentially means The Greatest Desert Slum. I think its used symbolically here to represent the empty, barren feeling of missing someone who's far away, either physically or emotionally. Perhaps even someone who is dead.
    There also seems to be a theme of anti-climax here. "I've walked a 1,000." "It seems I've waited...for the moment of completeness."
    In short, I think the song is about being without someone who brings life to your desert. And that sometimes the distant can play tricks on your mind, like "these visions", perhaps like a desert oasis. The trick being, you make the person into a complete fantasy with anticipation, making a vision of who you think they are or what they are doing based on the time you actually spent with the person, rather than who they really are. Maybe they're a complete jack wagon. :)
