Blind Melon — Deserted lyrics

Grab my knee and look at me

And try to tell me I'll be home soon

Asleep in my bed and unstoned

I'm tired of me this way

I don't know what I've gotten into

But I'm glad it's now instead of sooner

This desert heat has crowded me strong

With a wish I had for winter

It's not as gentle as it sounds

As though it sounded yesterday

When I heard a leaf of my life hit the ground

And as a bottle cap flew from my fingers

I don't know what I've gotten in to

But I'm glad it's now instead of sooner

This desert heat has crowded me strong

With a wish I had for winter

.. And the sands blew in my eyes

I stood on the edge and looked down to see

The light of a new life, shinning up on me

... With a wish that I had

The sand blew in my eyes
