"Desert of Our Love" as written by Paul David Hewson, Dave Evans, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen....
Hand of gold in the hot day
In the door and out then
The devil in the night
I feel love's alright

Going in the cold and going in the same
Born in the love with the light again
I believe in the love
I'm up again, alright

Come there, the darkest love then
All alone in the darkest night
I'm in real love
I feel love in the song
One more verse

Meet me in the door in the desert
In the morning I am
In there in the door, in love
Feeling in the stars and the love, believe it

All the love and all in the day
Feeling in my power in my love
Say it's in all the day, all the day
Gonna be in the garden in the sky
Oh yeah

And the desert of our love
And the desert of our love
And the feeling in the sand
When the poor man then

Go in the door, door feel me
Go inside, kneel down
I feel love in the song

Ahh, feel in the love, I love ya
Go in the soul, ooo
Bird in the sky, bird in the rain
Going the field in my heart
In my sight, believe me
Bird in the song
Bass and drums

    General CommentWow. What incredible lyrics. Moving, soul-wrenching, deep.

    Just kidding. Obviously these lyrics were the semiconscious product of Bono singing along to a melody that U2 abandoned after noodling it in the studio for a while.

    General CommentI had this strange feeling that "Streets" was the finished version of this song, when I heard it first.

    General CommentI really like the flow of this...especially drums and Bono's stream of consciousness has some high points. I wish they'd work on it and finish it because I bet the song would come out really cool once it was fleshed out. Unfortunately, they are way past this music and lyric at this point. So I can see why they released it unfinished like this...another glimpse into the song-making process.

    I don't hear the "Streets" similarity. Definitely same time period and flow, but I'm not hearing how they relate?

    My InterpretationI hear a very vague 'Streets' resemblance, but who can ignore the connection to "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For?" This sounds like a very early demo version!

    Anyone else agree?

    General CommentI do hear the "Still Haven't Found..." resemblance. In fact i do believe the drums from DOOL were used as a backing track for "Still Haven't Found...". I love the piano on this.
