lyrics

provided for research and private study only (see above for copyright details):

wish me well, say goodbye
I’ll never tell I saw you cry
understand you’re not to blame
it’s just that the wind
the wind knows my name

and it’s calling me
calling me
calling me again

I think that you knew right from the start
there was this restlessness in my heart
it’s a feeling that I have tried to tame
but it’s hard when the wind
when the wind knows your name

and it’s calling me
calling me
calling me
again

it’s a cruel wind that tears us apart
but a worse thing is a tired and bitter heart

{oh-oh continues under:}
so dry your eyes, no more tears
hold me once and I’ll walk out of here
who knows one day we’ll meet again
but don’t wait for me
’cos the wind knows my name

and it’s calling me
calling me
calling me
again

yes it’s calling me
calling me
calling me
again

– with brief vocalise
