The other weekend, a good friend shared her favorite song, “The Wind” by Cat Stevens. I grew up listening to a lot of his music (thanks to my dad), hearing this song countless times. Inspired by my friend, I recently started listening to it again. Re-acquainted with the lyrics, I actually comprehended the words and fell in love with this soulful song all over again.

I listen to the wind
To the wind of my soul
Where I’ll end up well I think,
Only God really knows
I’ve sat upon the setting sun
But never, never never never
I never wanted water once
No, never, never, never

I listen to my words but
They fall far below
I let my music take me where
My heart wants to go
I swam upon the devil’s lake
But never, never never never
I’ll never make the same mistake
No, never, never, never
CAT STEVENS
