I'm on the corner, waiting for a light to come on
That's when I know that you're alone
It's cold in the desert, water never sees the ground
Special unspoken without sound

You told me you loved me, that I'd never die alone
Hand over your heart, let's go home
Everyone noticed, everyone has seen the signs
I've always been known to cross lines

I've never ever cried when I was feeling down
I've always been scared of the sound
Jesus don't love me, no one ever carried my load
I'm too young to feel this old

Is it you, is it me
Or does nobody know, nobody see
Nobody but me.

    My InterpretationI heard the lyrics of Cold Desert were written by Caleb when he was drunk, and took a walk out in the desert. He reflected on past transgressions and relationships...and the Line "Jesus don't love me, no one ever carried my load" at the time, was how he felt...in an interview he said he knew it was wrong to say that...(the whole band being raised Pentecostal and all) but he truly and honestly felt that way that particular moment in time. Beautiful Song despite its pinch of depression :)
