If I were alone in the desert
Without a drink of water around
With my knees and hands in that white scorching sand
With the hot Sahara sun beating down

If I could be granted my wishes
And anything I want would come true
Well I know that it might sound funny
But here's what I want you to do

Tell Lorrie I love her, tell Lorrie I need her
Tell her everything would be okay if I could just see her
Tell Lorrie I love her, tell Lorrie I need her
And if I leave this whole world, tell her she's the only girl for me

If I were a drift on the ocean
A vessel with no sails or steam
Floating aimlessly on an endless sea
Hopelessly lost it would seem

If all of the fish in the water
Could echo my last dying plea
Well I know you might not understand it
But here's what I want it to be

Tell Lorrie I love her, tell Lorrie I need her
Tell her everything would be okay if I could just see her
Tell Lorrie I love her, tell Lorrie I need her
And if I leave this whole world, tell her she's the only girl for me
And if I leave this whole world, tell her she's the only girl for me

    It is more complicated than just a love song which this truely is, rather is is a cry to Lorrie who left him lonely. His last wish was not to be with her because she would just spurn him again.
