Lyrics

(Source: I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got)

I am walking through the desert,
And I am not frightened, although it's hot.
I have all that I requested,
And I do not want what I haven't got.
I have learned this from my mother.
See how happy she has made me?
I will take this road much further,
Though I know not where it talkes me.
I have water for my journey,
I have bread & I have wine.
No longer will I be hungry,
For the bread of life is mine.
I saw a navy blue bird
flying way above the sea.
I walked on & learned later
That this navy blue bird was me.
I returned a paler blue bird,
And this is the advice they gave me:
"You must not try to be too pure.
You must fly closer to the sea."
So I'm walking through the desert,
And I am not frightened, although it's hot.
I have all that I requested,
And I do not want what I haven't got.
