lyrics

Cactus Rose

Cactus Rose, right where she needs to be,
With the primeval saguaros that keep her company.

She came from New England, never to go back,
Carving out a new life in a rustic wooden shack;
Now she’s tough as a cactus in the Arizona heat,
Footprint light upon the earth, there’s not much that she needs.

Cactus Rose, right where she needs to be,
With the primeval saguaros that keep her company.

It’s said her heart was broken many moons ago,
In grief she simply wandered, a lost and lonely soul,
Her faithful dog beside her, just as wild as she’d become,
In the dry Sonoran Desert, she sensed that she’d come home.

Cactus Rose, right where she needs to be,
With the primeval saguaros that keep her company.

Conversation’s out of practice,
Neighbours many miles away,
Like the needles on a cactus,
Silence keeps the world at bay.

Cactus Rose, right where she needs to be,
With the primeval saguaros that keep her company.

A woman and a wild dog, little known and seldom seen,
At one with the desert, so peaceful and serene;
They’ve learned from those saguaros how to simply be,
For Mother Earth will always give them everything they need.

Cactus Rose, right where she needs to be,
With the primeval saguaros that keep her company.
Cactus Rose, Cactus Rose, Cactus Rose, Cactus Rose.
