Desert Angel

Written by Stevie Nicks and M. Campbell.

I was born in the desert
So I know how it feels there 
Well look up it's a shooting star
But it's as black as night no stars

Well this is the first thing,
That I've written
Since I wrote about freedom 
And then the wall came down
Well we thought it was a great beginning
People were free to cross the line
But then something happened in the desert
Something broke the stars into pieces

Well I live below a great red mountain
In the shape of a great huge beast
In a place the indians call Paradice Valley
Well this has always been my sanctuary
I send that to you too
There on the other side of the world
In the desert 
And we are the guardians
No black clouds just the faces of you

So where is my father,
Where has he gone
Where is my husband
Where is my son
Where is my father
Where has he gone
What is it that happened here
Is it real This war 
This can't be happening

Ooh well I need to see you
In your far away war
And you should know how much we love you
They call us here, Operation Desert Angel 
They call us here, Operation Desert Angel 
In waiting
Operation Desert Shield
Operation Desert Storm
Operation Desert Angel
