"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 Desert Moon

Kid Rock's "All Summer Long" is a mashup of "Werewolves Of London" and "Sweet Home Alabama." The album it came from was released in October, 2007, but they held off until summer, 2008 for a more seasonable release.
"Cigarettes And Chocolate Milk" describes a time in Rufus Wainwright's life when he found himself hungover and pounding chocolate milk to feel better. It didn't work, so he smoked a cigarette, which is when he realized his addictive personality could be a problem.
