  • "Is this the train to Desert Moon?" was all she said
    but I knew I'd heard that stranger's voice before.
    I turned to look into her eyes, but she moved away
    She was standing in the rain
    Trying hard to speak my name
    They say first love never runs dry

    The waiter poured our memories in a tiny cup
    We stumbled over words we longed to hear
    We talked about the dreams we'd lost, or given up
    When the whistle caught the night
    And shook silence from my life
    As the last train rolled toward the moon

    Those summer nights
    When we were young
    We bragged of things
    We'd never done
    We were dreamers, only dreamers
    And in our haste
    To grow up too soon
    We left our innocence on Desert Moon
    We were dreamers, only dreamers
    On Desert Moon
    On Desert Moon
    On Desert Moon
    Desert Moon

    I still can hear the whisper of the summer nights
    It echoes in the corners of my heart
    The night we stood waiting for the desert train
    All the words we meant to say
    All the chances swept away
    Still remain on the road to undo

    Those summer nights, when we were young
    We bragged of things we'd never done
    We were dreamers, only dreamers
    Moments pass, and time moves on
    But dreams remain for just as long as there's dreamers
    All the dreamers

    On Desert Moon
    On Desert Moon
    On Desert Moon
