Lyrics

She lied under the Yucca tree her face toward the mountain
A little dog watching her offered his protection
she has not been here before, I just had to show her
the silence of the desert

We ate the mushrooms and we lied our backs against the blanket
and in the sky we saw a dragon eating at a banquet
and when we saw death approach
all we heard when he spoke
was the silence of the desert

and i dont know why
but I cried
when i saw the moon in the sunlit sky

we are born in the quiet

and did you know that years ago I was here with someone
peeling back the mystery like layers of an onion
we had love but didnt know
that love's a garden and wont grow
in the silence of the desert

and I dont know why
but I cried
when I saw the moon
in the sunlit sky

we are born in the quiet

so here it is I lay to rest this time we've had together
let the tears fall down my cheeks to be dried out in this weather
I'll keep you in my memory
discovering that life's a dream
in the silence of the desert.
