Desert Rose

My dear Andrea, your smile shines bright Brighter than the Arizona sun so light Though the thermometer reads one-oh-four My heart burns for you even more

We walk hand-in-hand down sun-baked streets The heat makes my forehead and palms leak sweats But your beauty makes me forget the weather In your presence, we have found shelter

The dry desert air envelops us tight
But your brown eyes sparkle oh so bright You cool me better than any sweet ice tea My darling Andrea, you complete me

The cacti and lizards don’t mind the high degrees And I’ll gladly bear this heat on bended knees Because in Phoenix with you by my side Every scorching day feels like paradise
