There you may stand in your splendor and jewels
Swaying me in both directions
One is the right one, the other for fools
How do I make my selection?

The city lies silent in the warm morning light
The sand is as golden as saffron
Oasis of love sweet water of life
God bless the poor ones who have none though theyve tried

Someone is drowning down there in the flood
But this river will dry by tomorrow
Is it ocean or stream this love in my blood
Bringer of joy or a sorrow?

The end of the journey must soon be in sight
Birth is the start of the swan song
Oasis of love sweet water of life
God bless the poor ones who want some but are denied

No one is given the map to their dreams
All we can do is to trace it
See where we go to, know where weve been
Build up the courage to face it

While we fumble in the darkness where once there was light
Roaming the land of the ancients
Oasis of love sweet water of life
God bless the poor ones whose patience never died

While we stumble in blindness where once there was sight
Searching for trees in the forest
Oasis of love sweet water of life
God bless the poor ones who have none though they have tried

God bless the poor ones who want some but are denied
God bless the poor ones whose patience never died
God bless the poor ones on that one way donkey ride
