about

Without knowing why the star-gazer decides he must turn his back on love, that love is a distraction from his search for meaning in the heavens. The idea seems to come from nowhere, as if a distant voice had lullabied the notion into his sleeping ear - he should go into the desert where the stars are so much brighter. He must trust in the stars, let them guide him from these wasteful thoughts of love. The desert is the place to find the truth. Yes! He will go into the desert, there to find his way.

lyrics

I have let her pretty neck turn my head allowed her sweet perfume to cloud my eyes
I will try I will keep her from my mind I have let her pretty neck turn my head

You should go into the desert find so many secrets there
stars shine brighter in the desert keep your head and your horizon clear

It's alright I'll be guided by these satellites same stars that shine on you
Yes I know it's a road I hve to walk alone but it's alright guided by the light
Stars will be my satellite

Love has derailed this train caught up in thoughts of her again
I must find higher thoughts to occupy my mind love has derailed this train

You should go into the desert everything is clearer there
All your answers in the desert find yourself back on the right track there

It's alright I'll be guided by these satellites...

Wind is high the moon hangs low the desert sky says
there is more there is so much more to know

It's alright I'll be guided by your satellites...
