Oh I'd like to find myself
Trapped in some desert town with you
Just me and you

My long black hair waving in the dry wind
Me waving at you, my lover
From some ancient balcony

But like a
Thirsty vision I see you
And you're gone
Where could you have run to?

Come back
Come back
Come back

But you're
Gone california
And it's just my fate
Making me blue
Why else would I see you
Today

But I'm not in some desert town
And you're not there with me
I'm underground in NYC

The city of perpetual motion
The city that never sleeps
That's alright, I wasn't tired anyways

I was so close getting clear
Thought I had nothing to fear

You'd be on a plane
And you'd be gone
And it would be done
But there are

18 million people in this town
Who spend the day
Bummin' around
Just to bump into you
On third avenue

Yeah

And it's a
Pale moon
Burning sun
When will I see my only one

Pale moon
Burning sun
When will I see my only one

Well I think it's unbelievable
I think it's incredible
It's magical
It's tragic

But I know we'll meet again someday
And we'll be very far away
And I'll know you
And you'll know me
And we're gonna both agree

That we belong together
We belong together
We belong together

We belong together
We belong together
We belong together

Cause it's a pale moon
Burning sun
When will I see my only one

Pale moon
Burning sun
When will I see my only one

Yeah
Yeah

Oh
Oh I'd like to find myself
Trapped in some desert town with you
Just me and you
Just me and you

    Falling in love is the most foolish, crazy, masochistic thing to do, but still hope will always be there, as long as the sun and the moon shine, because the world is so beautiful and inspiring and so lonely at the same time, that we cannot avoid falling in love over and over again...

    Just love this song... Amazing... Did live in tucson for many yrs... I just dont know,just spent a few months thinking i had found the luv of my life.. Here in colorado springs... Spent a week in florida with her... And then it all fell apart... Still love the song... It was the first song i played for her in her car cd after she picked me up at the airport... Life goes on

    The loss of the love of my life... We spent a week in a desert town in west texas... We were the right thing at the wrong time, and i hope to see him again someday... Because we belong together...
