CACTUS CROSS                     

 

The skies are all dark baby

Desert evening breeze

Rolls across my landscape

Like a charm cast over me

One last final turnaround

One look from the road

To another lover

While my heart turns into stone

 

(Chorus)

 

While I long

To feel the Spanish moss

And it grows

Near the cactus cross

On the back

Needle pricks your spine

All the while

You search this town to feel alive

To feel alive

 

The miles have all but faded

Echo memory

Triggered by the perfume

In some fashion magazine

I cannot help but wonder

What life could have been?

If you held your promise

Then no one could ever win

 

(Chorus)
