Another summer is now in sight. I'm wondering what it will send. There's nothing as fine as a deep summer night In the Desert alone with your friends. The smells and sounds of canyon walls Where lately the sun has shown; The rocks are warm when darkness falls But the air soon chills the bone. The stars leap out as shadows form. An arch fills half the sky. The Milky Way is like a storm But your bag is warm and dry. As the last of twilight slips away Your tiring muscles rest. What a beautiful way to end the day In this paradise in the West. I'll always return to the water and stone To clear out my soul and my mind. To listen to the Desert's undertone; I'll remember these nights for all time.
