Desert Prints

Written by: Michael Degenhardt

Running
Running fast, running strong
Now I’m
Walking
Walking hard, walking long
Seems like
Forever
That I’ve been going in this place
But it’s never
That my memory’s erased
With thoughts of you
These desert prints 
Are holding strong to you

Trying
Trying now to make my way
Now I’m
Taking
Taking time with no delay
Seems like I’m
Falling
In the dry heat of the sun
But it’s never
That I’ll ever come undone
Because it’s true
These thoughts, the prints
They bring me home to you

My desert rose
My cactus flower
Though I am weak
You give me power
You are my water
In this arid land
I will make it there
And beat the sand 
Because it’s true
These thoughts, the prints
They bring me home to you

These desert prints
Will be my guide to you
