The Tragic Story Of Joshua And Fiedme – Dragonfly Collector (Lyrics)

Words and Music by Clementine

Desert on fire…
Desert on fire…
Fire in the desert, my, oh, my…

Somewhere near an old gold mine
Of mountain trails and barren lands
A squirrel named “Fiedme” resides

One hot day while foraging
He met a pretty yucca tree
Completely and utterly
He fell in love

Now each day will never be the same for Fiedme
Haunted by white flower dreams in his reverie

A large but quiet Joshua tree
Perceived the change in Fiedme
“Pray tell, what’s gotten into you, so strange?”

“You seldom eat, you barely sleep,
Are you troubled, are you sick?
Is there something I can do to help you Fiedme?”

This triggered a confession with his best friend
“I’m mad for love, she’s all I ever wanted!”

“I’m in love….”
“I’m in love….”

An introduction ensued
Between Joshua and Fiedme’s muse
Exchanging smiles and glances so peculiar

The desert changed its hue
Foreboding colors, rocks turned blue
The lady tree is quite taken with his best friend

Now that day will never be the same for Joshua
It seems a Spanish bayonet has marked his brittle heart

He’s in love…
He’s in love…

When Fiedme finally realized
He felt betrayed and made a vow
Was gone for days, nowhere to be found

He left a note for Joshua
Carved from burnt wood, crooked lines
“You win this time, I’ll see you in the next life.”

Now that day will never be the same for everyone
The desert’s changing color once again

It’s on fire…
It’s on fire…
Fire in the desert, yeah yeah yeah
Fire in the desert, yeah yeah yeah
Fire in the desert, yeah yeah yeah
