Lonely Palm


***********


I have been so alone in the desert many years
and thirsting for a little sign of love
the water that I got was the water mixed with tears
while waiting for a sign from above
I wonder why it was that I was planted here
to spend my life just standing all alone
I whish that there would be another palm right here
before my lonely heart will turn to stone

Now if I had two legs I could go away and search
But I just can not move from this here place
maybe I'll tell the bird there sitting on a perch
if he maybe could help me with my case
If he could find a seed and then plant it next to me
then I would have a friend here in some years
it would be oh so nice with a palm right next to me
and then I would not shead so many tears

How sad it is for me to spend my life this way
just standing here alone in all that sand
to stand here every night and stand here every day
please won't somebody give a helping hand
just plant a little seed and help a lonely me
and then I would be oh so very glad
it wouldn't be so hard now to help me don't you see
and then I would not have to be so sad
