Desdemona
The Allman Brothers Band

Rain falls on a sleepy southern town
The midnight moon burning brightly
Memories rush in like a river forlorn
As you lay sleeping without me

Highway song keeps me rollin' on
Still I long for you

Desdemona, I will be your only one
Oh yeah

And I make my living pouring out my pain
Trying to make it through another day
Arms reach for me on the wind I can feel them
They're a thousand miles away

Your eyes remind me of everything beautiful and blue
And I won't feel myself till I'm with you

Desdemona, I will be your only one
Oh yeah

So hold a candle till the darkness fades
Night time sleeps but not for long
My heart is pounding like the ocean
My soul's empty as the sky
But I know, someday I'll be coming home

Time goes by the twinkling of an eye
Still I pine for you

Desdemona, I will be your only one
I just wanna be, oh, your only one
I just wanna be your only one
Your only one
