lyrics

Born in the morning, and they'll die in the night
Spirit and ashes, fallen from sight
The northern lullaby, joins with an eastern sigh
Caressing golden grass, singing with calling chimes
West 'til the sinking sky, calls them home in flight
Bring your courage, bring your songs in time

Fools, they won't teach me, wise men can try
I'll set my compass by the stars in the sky
I"ll spend my time in the night, searching the cracks for a light
These solid walls inside, open up in time
O'er hills and valleys wide
Brick roads and broken signs
I'll put my time in, I'll put my time in

In the frost light, early morning, in the still night, in the dawning
Holy winds, Holy winds, they blow
Holy winds, holy winds, they blow

The dawn may bring sorrow, the morning break old
Come light or darkness, I know the sun will burn the cold
I'll spend my time in the wild, counting toes light a child
Let the spinning world, push me higher and higher
Too weak to leave behind
The ground beneath I find
I'll leave my cold feet, rooted in the warm ground while

In the ocean, in the forest, in the still eye, in the torrent
Holy winds, holy winds, they blow
Holy winds, holy winds, they blow

When the wolf cries, softly mourning
A gentle reprise, a subtle warning
Holy winds, holy winds they blow
Stirring up the pines and covering our tracks in the snow

When our hearts beat in slow motion
When our minds meet quiet commotion
Holy winds, holy winds they blow
Stirring up the fires, and lighting up our eyes in the glow
Oh let them blow down my home
