Dark Tent

lyrics

do you remember the dark tent desert white hot glowing
do you remember the long road to the dark tent feet bleeding hearts singing
do you remember the songs of the dark tent sands sighing night owl sobbing
do you remember the dawn when the flap rose light flooding in and the thunder as the tumblers broke
goodbye my love goodbye my love for too long
do you remember the dark bar city crowded dirty lonely
do you remember the dark side of the dark bar you came in, you came over like you knew me you did not know me, didn’t matter we had a few drinks, a few laughs we never asked each others names then we left in a taxi, silly, laughing again you overtipped, my high heels hurt we stumbled up some stairs to your place where we stripped
and then things went terribly wrong we looked into each other’s eyes for too long it scared me I ran out calling your name
do you remember the dark tent on the desert where we’d lay close listening as the sands froze
