Everything Waiting to Grow

from Sweet Life

The Joshua tree, with its arms raised
The way that you found me
I said to come this way
And you never second guessed, you believed in the wild west
Come to see the ageless tree
You know the desert won't show
Everything waiting to grow

The Desert Queen through the gold rush
Everybody dreams
Now all that's left is us
We may have come here for the thrill, but we stay through force of will
Come to see Death Valley
You know the desert won't show
Everything waiting to grow.

Give me a little bit of rain
I want to believe it's true
We don't wait in vain, no the desert will bloom
With all the juniper, all the willow vine
And all the beauty underneath
Coming up to shine

The Joshua tree in the darkness
The way that you found me, on the road to this
And we take comfort in the fact that there is no turning back
Come to see the ageless tree
You know the desert won't show
Everything waiting to grow
Everything waiting to grow
Everything waiting
