Lyrics Post: “Desire”

This one, burns strong, forever low simmer, since I heard it the first time. Speaks to part of my mind-set of late…awhile…searching, waiting, wanting, hmm…

…Stay patient.

Lover, I’m on the street
Gonna go where the bright lights 
And the big city meet
With a red guitar…on fire

She’s a candle burning in my room
Yeah I’m like the needle, needle and spoon
Over the counter with a shotgun
Pretty soon everybody got one
And the fever when I’m beside her
Desire, desire…

And the fever…getting higher
Desire, desire…burning, burning

She’s the dollars
She’s my protection
Yeah she’s a promise
In the year of election
Oh sister, I can’t let you go
Like a preacher stealing hearts
At a traveling show
For love or money money money
money money money money money
money money money
And the fever, getting higher
Desire, desire, desire, desire
Desire, desire
