You're the Northern Wind
Sending shivers down my spine
You're like falling leaves
In an autumn night

You're the lullaby
That's singing me to sleep
You are the other half
You're like the missing piece

Oh my love
Oh my love
Oh my love
You don't know
What you do to me, to me

You are all four seasons
Rolled into one
Like the cold December snow
In the warm July sun

I'm the jet black sky
That's just before the rain
Like the mighty current
Pulling you under the waves

Oh my love
Oh my love
Oh my love
You don't know what you do to me
To me
I'm the darkest hour
Just before the dawn
And I'm slowly sinking
Into the slough of despond

Like an old guitar
Worn out and left behind
I have stories still to tell
They're of the healing kind

Oh my love
Oh my love
Oh my love
If I could just
Find you tonight
If I could just find you tonight
Oh my love

Do do do

    It perfectly describes how love is and should be. This quote from the book 11 minutes by paolo coelho comes to mind: "the greatest of love is the one that can show it's fragility. " this song screams fragility with it's honesty, and that makes it really great..

    To me it is about someone who is a little more relationship wise and jaded who is in love with an inexperienced person. The love is so meaningful and great because of the naivety nature of the other giving so freely and easily w/o knowing how hard it is to find such great love and companionship.

    My boyfriend means a lot to me. His song reminds me of him not only because he loves city in color but ben produces a lot of wind. He's also taller than me. If you don't understand what i mean he's from the northern side and he's extremely gaseous. I love benjamin t.

    The meaning of northen wind to me is love but not just finding love actually searching for it and finding the truth and lies to love every little journey you go through to get there and also to stay there not just having a relationship that means nothing to the other person and getting thrown away when they get bored of it, this song is very meaningful and will hopefuly show itself to alot of couples and single people who need to search for love!! I hope you all find it !
