Venetian shadows lie here and stare
Incessant heat, listless air
Throb of a diesel, nighthawk screams
Long for some water but drift to a dream
I thirst
I thirst …

No clouds in the desert, dunes everywhere
Shimmering haze, cellophane air
A beckoning pool in the distance ahead
But when I arrive it’s just sand instead
I thirst
I thirst
Let me drink where the cool water flows

I come to this well like so often before
Oasis of habit brings me back for more
You wait unchanging as these desert skies
Only You, only You can satisfy
I thirst
I thirst…

Anguish of spirit, turbulent fatigue
On account of a quest of endless intrigue
Your tongue cleaves to your jaws ‘neath a blacked-out sun
You pour Yourself out – living water has come
I thirst
I thirst…

You said it yourself
I hear it again and again
My own longing echoes your pain
And I thirst
