Desert Rose free piano sheet music by Sting
About the song
"Desert Rose" is one of the many popular songs recorded by Sting. It was released on his album "Brand New Day" from 1999.
The piano sheet music of "Desert Rose" is composed in the originally key of C minor. The "Desert Rose" piano sheet music is ranged for G3-Bb5.
It is known that Sting played a character in one of the Dune movies and that he is a big fan of the book. The lyrics of the song "Desert Rose" seemed to be inspired from the novel "Dune" which was written by Frank Herbert. We can assume that the song is composed from the personal view of Paul Atreides from the Dune book.
Actually, the story from the book is portraying Paul Atreides dreaming of rain and gardens in Arrakis, which can be seen also in the "Desert Rose" lyrics:
I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
Some other people consider that the song is about Adam and Eve, and the meaning of the song is about the pain Adam feels for the memory of Eve in the Garden of Eden. This version might be true, especially for the last lyrics of the song when Sting talks about a memory from Eden:
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this
Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
