That morning sky gave me a look
So I left while you were sleeping
That's all it took
And I chalked a line south down the coast
Going where my thirst was open
For the things that I don't know
Going where I wasn't paying
For the hurt that I owe
One half moon sleeping by the creeks
And a woman put me under
Her barn roof for a week
I knew her voice before she spake
I saw a grave dug by a preacher
Just to see what it would make

So hold high how faint your reasons
(Boy, you'll never get on)
Don't you forget you came from nothing
(Boy you'll never get on)
That wind is calling my name
And I won't wait
Or I'll never get on.

It's not hard to live like a ghost
I just haunt all that I've wanted
And leave what I don't
I dreamt a trail up to the sky
And my brothers built propellers
Just to see how far they'd fly

So hold high how faint your reasons
(Boy you'll never get on)
Your flashing sparrows chasing with them
(Boy you'll never get on)
Don't you forget you come from nothing
(Boy you'll never get on)
That wind is calling my name
And I won't wait
Or I'll never get on

That wind is calling my name
And I won't wait
Or I'll never get on

So hold high how faint your reasons
So hold high how faint your reasons
So hold high how faint your reasons
That wind is calling my name
And I won't wait
Or I'll never get on

    We all fight the wind to stay where we are. I feel like this song is about finally listening to the wind, and getting out of the rut. Because if you don't go when the wind calls, you'll be trapped forever :

    It's about the romance of a life that is drenched with beauty and experience and passion, even though it's being led by a hurtful and heartless person. It's about setting sails to the wind, and treating the people along the way as nothing more than moments and scenery.

    I heard it from one tree hill . The series finale and the first song to be played on that episode. One tree hill means a lot! Soo yeah this song is kinda special in a way. I remember the first scene when this song is played and what the characters were saying. It's a really great song with an amazing way how i found out about this song. One tree hill has the most amazing music ever!
