lyrics

Listen to the Wind (Lyrics: Rob Lutes)

I listened to the wind, I touched the ice
I said love’ll be my shadow if I treat it nice

I followed every shiver that made me swoon
A little indecision was a lead balloon

I wandered and I worshipped and I scratched it down
I chased it like an echo from the underground

But the only time I get it is when I let it get away
Heart in hand without a plan for how to make it pay
Far out on an ocean that never hits the shore
Once I know there’s nothing else, I don’t need nothing more

I said, oh baby, don’t be rude
Don’t believe in every little thing you do

Because everything goes up and down
Its gonna take you somewhere but you’re gonna want to turn around

But the only time you get it is when you let it get away
Heart in hand without a plan for how to make it pay
Far out on an ocean that never hits the shore
Once you know there’s nothing else, you won’t need nothing more

I carried on a while like a drunkard’s son
I said it wouldn’t be a good game if everybody won

Then I coated up my heart in stainless steel
So I could rescue everybody on the battlefield

But the only time I get it is when I let it get away
Heart in hand without a plan for how to make it pay
Far out on an ocean that never hits the shore
Once I know there’s nothing else, I don’t need nothing more
