Lyrics

I have chosen,
I have chosen
To become the love I’m longing.
Love was never something beyond me,
Underneath me, or above me,
And I will, I must, and so I will
Dwell beneath the desert still,
For there’s no safety to be acquired
Riding streetcars named desire.
If I were dying, if I were dying,
What would I want,
what would I want with me?
If I were dying,
If I were dying,
Who would I want,
who would I want to see?
And I will, I must, and so I will
Dwell beneath the desert still,
For there’s no safety to be acquired
Riding streetcars named desire.
When I was married,
When I was married,
I’d ask my husband to lay his body over me,
And to tell me, and to tell me
Just how safe he’d keep me,
And I will, I must, and so I will
Dwell beneath the desert still
For there’s no safety to be acquired
Riding streetcars named desire.
