Cat Stevens – The Wind (The Wind lyrics on screen and in description)
I really love this beautiful short song by Cat Stevens. I believe he explains his inspiration for all his songs when he says, “I listen to the wind, to the wind of my soul. I let my music take me where my heart wants to go.” And isn’t that what each of us do when we listen to music?

“Sing a song and for a moment you will be visited by the wind. Sing a song and for a moment dream sweetly of the wind. Sleep now until the night is dawn. The wind and the night song, they are there. However the song, my child, will go on forever…”

About Cat Stevens (from Encyclopedia.com):

Stevens was born Stephen Demetre Georgiou to Greek immigrant parents on July 21, 1948, in London, England. He became interested in music from an early age. In late 1968 had to be hospitalized for three months with tuberculosis. By the time Stevens was well enough to leave the hospital, he had decided to drop out of the music scene for a while. He reemerged with a more mature, folk-oriented style, his instrumentation was more spare, and his appearance drastically changed—the clean-shaven teen idol now had long hair and a bushy beard. The album he recorded in 1970, Mona Bone Jakon, received a great deal of critical acclaim and brought Stevens to the attention of music fans in the United States. The follow-up, 1970’s Tea for the Tillerman, became his first gold album, and included the classics “Wild World,” “Father and Son,” and “Miles from Nowhere.” His popularity was further increased that year by a live radio concert in Los Angeles, California, which prompted Los Angeles Times critic Robert Hilburn to hail Stevens as “an exceptional singer and artist whose highly distinctive voice has the rare ability to combine the strength, fragility, and sometimes mystery of his highly personal compositions.”

Stevens’s success continued throughout the 1970s as he racked up gold album after gold album. Teaser and the Firecat (1971) contained three songs that are perhaps his most famous—”Moonshadow,” “Morning Has Broken,” and “Peace Train.”

Singer-songwriter Cat Stevens has gone through many changes during the course of his career. Beginning as a British teen idol in the late 1960s, he eventually rose to great heights of popular and critical acclaim as a folk artist in the 1970s. Then, while still enjoying a large following of music fans, Stevens converted to Islam and stopped putting out records to devote himself to his new religion. He took the name Yusuf Islam, and eventually rid himself of all vestiges of his secular career, giving away his guitars and the many gold records he had earned. For many years he operated a small hotel in London and recorded only Islamic-oriented materials when he recorded at all. Finally, under the name Yusuf, he returned to secular music with the album An Other Cup in late 2006.

Cat Stevens “The Wind” Lyrics:

I listen to the wind
To the wind of my soul
Where I’ll end up well, I think
Only God really knows
I’ve sat upon the setting sun
But never, never, never, never
I never wanted water once
No, never, never, never

I listen to my words but
They fall far below
I let my music take me where
My heart wants to go
I swam upon the devil’s lake
But never, never, never, never
I’ll never make the same mistake
No, never, never, never
