Here is a song written in late 2002.
Toying around with a beat and attitude.

Desert Midnite

Crossin' the desert
Not a dime to my name
The burnin' sun
Is gonna drive me insane

It's a lonely passage
A solo route
A long way to go
When your woman kicks you out

When love has gone
It leaves you destroyed
A desert of thirst
A plague to avoid
