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
