A MESSAGE TO THE WIND
As recorded Gordon Lightfoot 1999
Hold my hand, so I can hold you in my heart
Hold my hand, so I can guide you through the forest of the night
By the sea upon the raging tide
A message through the wind, I must begin to write of love and rain.
Touch my heart, for it is beating just for you
Hear my song, as I sing it to the lost and lonely ones
If there were time to spend another day
A message to the wind, I would begin if he could blow my thoughts to you.
Hold my hand, now it is time for me to go
Take my love, and let it rest for we must meet again somehow
When you're alone and willows start to bend
And rain begins to fall at times you will pretend
And not pretend at all, I'll be with you again
A message to the wind.
