Doesn't feel too much like a desert out there at the moment - it's pouring down (that's putting it politely)


I went for a walk in the desert
Past the shuttered shops and their tin can luxury
Past the wreckage of the nights before
Past cardboard blossom and the glass strewn floor.
Past Sunday hangover that settles like a haze and slows your veins
Past where our love first grew
Which we both knew would never be the same.

I went for a walk by the desert
Past the weekday madness and pinstripe urgency
Past the spray can declarations of war
Past the “Church of Hope” and the department store
Past off the beat cafe – selling chance encounters, coffee and regret
Past the home of the lost and the lonely
Forgotten souls who never could forget

They say a city can be lonely
With a broken heart that no one understands
I’ve heard that thinking there’s one only
Will see you dead and buried neath the burning sand, and I know
They say a flower in the desert
Is God’s way of making you see the bleak expanse.
I know that when it’s gone you wonder
If you’ll ever see another
Or was that your only chance?
Was that your only chance?

I returned from a walk in the desert
To the piled up letters and cold conservatory
To the echoes of the week before
To the broken promise on the bathroom floor
Now unfamiliar walls
Where absent pictures smiled down yesterday
You said our love’s a desert
I died of thirst, you turned and walked away
