 Remember that X files episode where they were led by a 
series of cookoo clues to a boxcar full of aliens (with 
smallpox vaccine scars) buried in the desert? I thought that 
would make a funny romantic symbol: cold, hidden, possibly 
full of alien corpses (maybe empty would be better). But in 
this story, the romantic interest gets what she wants: a 
reason to go to the desert. 

We made a promise
of treasure and spice
something was empty
but everything was nice

My love is a boxcar buried in the desert
Look and you might find out if it's empty or full

I gave my love to keep and carry
I did not say how deep it's buried
(it's deep)

My love is a boxcar buried in the desert
Look and you might find out if it's empty or full

Turns out it didn't matter
She found what she wanted: 
A story and a reason to go
to the desert

My love is a boxcar buried in the desert
Look and you might find out if it's empty or full
