Oh my God, think I'm lost at sea
The silent waves are my company
And I lost the land between the sky it seems
And wondering, "Will the wind ever come free?"
Yeah

Cause I don't know, I don't  know where I am 
Can you tell me, will I break or will I bend
Will the wind ever come again 
Ooh, ooh

I feel the sun coming out, rising from the east
And I see the empire, falling to her knees 
And I lost the land between, her and me
My troubles are gone if the wind ever comes free
Yeah 

Cause I don't know, I don't know where I am
Can you tell me, will I break or will I bend
Will the wind ever come 

You,  left me on the shoreline 
You will stand and bare  
But you, I'll find you waiting 
You were waiting for me, waiting for me

Tried to kiss the emptiness 
Lost the line between sky and sea
I feel the sun coming up, coming up, coming up, coming up

But I don't know, I don't know where I am
I will break or I will bend 
Will the wind ever come again?

    It's about a sailor who's lost at sea who's waiting for the wind to set him free again and safely back to shore.

    It's about moving on. Taking one more look at what you will leave behind. Maybe taking a few small truths; memories with you, and then heading out to start a new beginning! Great lyrics.

    Someone who is lost, has many troubles and is about to break down because they've had enough. But i think they look at the wind kind of like a form of hope.
