Desert Song c) 1990 Susan C Haworth
So long so alone the desert sands
drift a mile from my door
Now and then I hear the caravans
Sweep by me with a quiet roar
So far so good on my tropical isle
never thought I'd see another soul
Maybe its time to go home
Maybe its time to go home home again
Here we are together again
don't the stars seem bright tonight the sky's on fire
Thank God I live on the southern most isle
cause no one will ever find me here
So I sail from my paradise
somewhere to the left of the sun
Maybe its time to go home
Maybe its time to go home home again
Love calls ..........voices in the breeze
Love calls ..........singing back to me and me alone
Love calls...........sing it loud sing it strong
Love calls sing it strong
Sing it just for me
trumpet solo
Light a flame with the song in my heart
I know I'll find my way
Heading back with the turn of the tide
Red sky tonight
Make those pirates pray
Make those pirates pray
Red Sky tonight.
Love calls ...................home again x2

Haunting 6/8 tune with jazz inflections. Big sax solo, guitars, piano, rhythmic percussion and bass invoking a dreamy mood as if sailing on the sea. Call and answer backing vox and main vocal driving the mood of a solitary soul enjoying their isolation.
Story Behind the Song:
Living on a desert island far from the maddening crowd. Blissful 6/8 tempo tune about isolation, but splendid isolation and being at one with nature.
