I spent half my life
Looking for the reasons things must change.
And half my life trying to make them stay the same.
But love would fade like summer into fall;
All that I could see was a mystery,
It made no sense at all.

The will of the wind, you feel it and then,
It will pass you blowing steady.
It comes and it goes, and God only knows,
You must keep your sails on ready.
So when it begins, get all that you can;
You must befriend the will of the wind.

I spent so many hours
Thinking about the way things might have been.
And so many hours trying to bring the good times back again.
And so it goes for lonely heated fools;
They let their days slip away,
Until they give into...

[Repeat Chorus]

    There are times that we don't want to let go the things and memories that come across our way. But we can do nothing about it. It will slip away just like the wind. Our life is a constant change and we always have to move on. Letting go is a sad thing. So we need to cherish every moment of our life, for just like wind, it will past us by.

    Life and love will never be defined by words nor will it be a subject that someone fully knows about. Life and love comes and go. Just like the wind does. Only god is the one capable of making the wind blow back so for me while it still blows, cherish it for you never know when it will come back. -raffy andres :)

    Basically, the song means we can't seem to make up our minds on things but still, the plans that have been set before us will still be there. Sometimes, it will depend on our decisions if it will take time to get there, but we'll get there eventually when the time is right.

    It means just go with the flow of life beyond reason and doubt, for only god knows everything. Never question him about the sufferings and pains in life for you never questioned him the moment you are happy. Whatever life brings you just go on. God's knowledge and wisdom is beyond human's account. We cannot fully understand his ways but for sure everything is designed with a purpose.

    This is a very inspirational song and it inspires us to do many great things and the above one was posted by us we heard this song a thousand times after knowing It's meaning. We really spent half our child hood thinking 'bout something related to our life it changed our lives and if we want to the change the world change yourself first. It's true that love and the life can not be expressed in words we just love this song and we sing it where ever we go. Life is precious don't waste it live your life to full. Love who you are. Don't waste time once gone it never comes back. Every one wants happiness no one wants pain but you cannot have rain bow without rain be crazy be stupid be weird be whatever because life is to short to be anything but happy trying to forget someone you love is like trying to remember sum one whom you've never met if you love life, life will love you back mistake are sum times sweet memories do what you love, love what you do where there is love there is love this song is awesome! Love it.
