The Allman Brothers Band Desdemona

Rain falls on a sleepy southern town,
the midnight moon was burnin' brightly.
Memories rushin' on a river, oh Lord!
As you lay sleeping without me.
Highway songs keep me rollin' on,
still I long for you.
Desdemona, I will be your only one again.

I make my living pouring out my pain,
trying to make it through another day.
Your arms reach for me,
on the wind I can feel it,
even though they're a thousand miles away.
Your eyes remind me of everything that's beutiful and blue.
I won't feel myself without you.
Desdemona, I will be your only one, oh yeah.

So hold a candle 'till the darkness fades, nightime sleeps until dawn.
My heart is pounding like the ocean, my soul is empty as the sky, but I know someday I'll be coming home.
Time goes by in the twinkling of an eye, and still I burn for you.
Desdemona, I will be your only one again.

I just wanna be your only one, yes I just wanna be your only one,
your only one.
