This song is by Sarah McLachlan and appears on the 1989 reissue of the album Touch (1988).

In the desert of my dreams
I saw you there
And I'm walking towards
The water steaming
Body cold and bare
But your words cut loose the fire
And you left my soul to bleed
And the pain
That's in your truth's deceiving me
Has got me scared

Oh why?

Through your eyes
The strains of battle
Like a brooding storm
You're up and down
These pristine velvet walls
Like focus never forms
My walls are getting wider
And my eyes are drawn astray
I see you now a vague deception
Of a dying day

Oh why?

I fall into the water
And once more I turn to you
And the crowds were standing staring faceless
Cutting off my view to you
They start to limply flail their bodies
In a twisted mime
And I'm lost inside this tangled web
In which I'm lain entwined
You're gone and I'm lost inside
This tangled web in which I'm lain entwined

Oh why?
