Meet Me In The Desert

I hope I'm more than a match for you
Burning your eyes enough to want more
Then gone to where you cannot find

I hope I'm more than a preserved memory
Too cold too touch until I burn your skin
Melting away maybe deep inside of you

I hear about all our failures inside my car
How many people sing about the same thing
We were so different but now we're common

I'm not asking anybody for anything
So why are you mad at my independence
Sometimes I only love sand as far as I can see

It soothes me because it's never temporary
Silently existing underneath our burning feet
So strong because you can never cross it

Even a rainy day or the summer sun ends
But not our souls or the ground we trod
Is it the same for you now as it was for me?
