Hawkmoon 269

29 years later, these lyrics still speak to me.   Wanted to share.  Enjoy the journey through Hawkmoon.

Like a desert needs rain
Like a town needs a name
I need your love

Like a drifter needs a room
Hawkmoon
I need your love
I need your love

Like a rhythm unbroken
Like drums in the night
Like sweet soul music
Like sunlight
I need your love

Like coming home
And you don’t know where you’ve been
Like black coffee
Like nicotine
I need your love (I need your love)
I need your love (I need your love)
I need your love (I need your love)

When the night has no end
And the day yet to begin
As the room spins around
I need your love
I need your love

Like a Phoenix rising needs a holy tree
Like the sweet revenge of a bitter enemy
I need your love

Like the hot needs the sun
Like honey on her tongue
Like the muzzle of a gun
Like oxygen
I need your love (I need your love)
I need your love (I need your love)
I need your love (I need your love)

When the night has no end
And the day yet to begin
As the room spins around
I need your love

I need your love
Whoa!
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love

Like thunder needs rain
Like a preacher needs pain
Like tongues of flame
Like a sheet stained
I need your love
I need your love

Like a needle needs a vein
Like someone to blame
Like a thought unchained
Like a runaway train
I need your love

I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love

Like faith needs a doubt
Like a freeway out
I need your love

Like powder needs a spark
Like lies need the dark
I need your love

In the heart of the heat of the love
In the heart of the heat of the love
In the heart of the heat of the love
In the heart of the heat of the love
In the heart of the heat of the love
In the heart of the heat of the love
In the heart of the heat of the love
In the heart of the heat of the love
In the heart of the heat of the love
In the heart of the heat of the love
In the heart of the heat of the love
In the heart of the heat of the love
In the heart of the heat of the love
In the heart of the heat of the love
In the heart of the heat of the love
In the heart of the heat of the love
In the heart of the heat of the love
In the heart of the heat of the love
In the heart of the heat of the love
In the heart of the heat of the love

And there’s the song.

GOOD.
