desert song lyrics – def leppard

dark and dirty
like you have never seen
a mind so twisted
with thoughts so unclean.
my heart is racing
all tattered and torn
i stand here naked
as the day i was born.

over and over i stand
i’m holding the world in my hand
i got to believe

the sky is falling
on this setting son
echoes of silence
ringing loud and long
this isolation
is the king of pain
a lost horizon
in an ocean of flames

only the lonely will stand
i’m holding the world in my hand
i got to believe

i’ve been here before,
but not as i stand here today
i wait for the dawn
ready to walk
into the light

/ def leppard lyrics
