From the recording Take Me to the Desert

Lyrics

It's been a while
Since winter's seen the songbird
It's been a while
Since I could hear what you heard
And a smile
Spoken like a kind word
Could heal my broken heart
Could heal my broke heart
 
 
It's been a while
Since I was on my knees
It's been a while
Since I was bold to speak
But I'm on my knees again
I'm on my knees again
 
Take me to the desert
I'm lookin' for the songbird
I'll bring her back to winter
When the wind is cold and unforgiving
 
Take me to the desert
I'm waitin' on a kind word
I am on my knees again
And the winter wind is unforgiving
 
Peter wrote
Himself as a warning
And so it goes
That people stop believing
That there's a place
Where the sun is always shining
It'll heal the broken hearts
It'll heal the broken hearts
 
Take me to the desert
I'm lookin' for the songbird
I'll bring her back to winter
When the wind is cold and unforgiving
 
Take me to the desert
I'm waitin' on a kind word
I am on my knees again
And the winter wind is unforgiving
