lyrics

How The Four Winds Blow

Staring at the ceiling for the third hour on end
And only four to go before the work week’s here again
Running through these questions and harboring these doubts
Fending all self pity, but I’m feeling down and out
Feeling down and out

I don’t know how hard the four winds blow
Through the northern pines
But I’ll grab hold and let it all unfold
Leave this life behind

A Friday night of excess, a paycheck quarter gone
A Saturday spent strung out wondering where it all went wrong
And all I want is happiness, my soul to feel at peace
My friends to still think of me, oh to do just as I please
Do just as I please

I don’t know how hard the four winds blow
Across the seven seas
But I’ll grab hold and let it all unfold
Set my mind at ease

I don’t know how hard the four winds blow
Through the northern pines
But I’ll grab hold and let it all unfold
Leave this life behind

I don’t know how hard the four winds blow
Across the seven seas
But I’ll grab hold and let it all unfold
Set my mind at ease
