Nick Granato – The Way The Wind Blows lyrics

Words & Music By
Nick Granato

I met an old man down by the sea,
He said everything around you is within your reach,
Oh but you've gotta watch, don't turn your back on the sun,
Cause when those blue skies turn black, boy you'd better run
Just like life, those hurricanes come
They'll send you flying, back to where you came from....
That's just the way the wind blows, that's the way the story goes,
Up and down we all coast, in and out with the tide
That's just the way the wind blows, take your chances and find,
That nobody really knows, That's just the way the wind blows....

I thought about what the old man had said,
I considered his wisdom and where he had been,
I asked him how he'd made it this far
He smiled and said I was once where you are
Oh but just like life, the wind spun me around,
And son I've lost more, than I've ever found....


He said life's never easy, there's gonna be rain,
You've got to be ready to weather the change,
Don't find yourself adrift in the breeze,
Son, never forget to anchor your dreams...

I met an old man down by the sea,
He spoke about God and love and inner peace,
He said, first know yourself, start by looking within,
And don't ever regret, cause life was meant to be lived...
Oh But just like the wind, life's so hard to explain,
You just do what you can, and let the rest change...
