lyrics

i went into the desert and i missed him
don’t know if it was the mountains
asking questions

i went into the desert and i held him
through a muddy creek, he
was sand pooling in my hands

and every night the desert sang a love song
and inside my languid body was a fight
and every night i hoped that he would come home
but by daylight i knew it wasn’t right

the wash is drying up
underneath the red sunset
and I’m a lizard slinking through
the valley of regret

oh i’m the wild coyote
yelping at the midnight sky
a lover, forgotten how to love
the sparrow, how to fly

hollow, hollow when the moon is rising, rising

lost my footing in the desert canyon
i lost him, and i lost my home
saw him vanish into the horizon
and there i was, left to be alone
