Cat Stevens – The Wind lyrics

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

    The song is a picture of a spirit sitting by a "devil's lake", singing words like birds and wandering of the beauty of being and creating music. There is one restriction for this beauty and lightness - you must not desire or swim in the lake. When I was young, I noticed the light and free feeling in the song and for the long time the words were some kind of enigma for me.
