Wind And Roses

Lyrics: Grahame Lesh
Music: Grahame Lesh

A Midnight North song played by Grahame Lesh with the Phil Lesh & Friends.

Where did you first hear the whistle blow
Leading me to all I could find
Don't you want to feel that train a-rolling
On home, throw off that disguise

Who are you to keep me from knowing
All that wisdom that the world wants to show
Paradise awaits at the burning
It's all there, but we will never go

Where the wind and roses wait
It will take the night away
Call the light to show you what I see
When the northern winds will blow
It will comfort your soul
Bid thee well as I go down among the trees
And all the light'll fade
And all the light'll fade

But who am I to say where we're going
I have always been too easy led astray
I'm ready to foresake the wiser learning
Fall hard, that's all I ever say

Where the wind and roses wait
It will take the night away
Call the light to show you what I see
When the northern winds will blow
We will comfort your soul
Fare you well as I go down among the trees

Oh hear my soul, come on and take it now
And feel my heart, don't you break it now
Oh heal my soul, come on and take it now
It's all there but you will never know

Where the wind and roses wait
It will take the night away
Call the light to show you what I see
When the northern winds will blow
It will comfort your soul
Fare you well as I go down among the trees
And all the light'll fade
And all the light'll fade
And all the light'll fade
And all the light'll fade
