Even the desert bares a seed - Matthews / While
From the album ‘Piecework’ While and Matthews

Chorus
Maybe the things we wish for
Are not the things we need
But what we need is what we’re given
Even the desert bares a seed

I wish she said for beauty, for looks to turn his head
But what the mirror does not show her, lies in her heart instead

Chorus

I wish he said for riches, to buy her everything
Although he may not know it, he is her rainbow’s end

Chorus

We spend our whole lives wishing, we search for every clue
We should look a little closer, for when we least expect it
Maybe its what we’re given, that will come shining through

Chorus
