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

Deethewriter from Saint Petersburg, Russia FederationTaken from Original Rolling Stone 'Teaser and The Firecat' LP Review [December 9, 1971]: "The Wind" is a model of economical songwriting, a far cry from the early pop songs in which Cat endlessly repeated the same trivial verse, padding it out with meaningless breaks. In less than two minutes, "The Wind" compresses Cat's philosophy and a description of his working methods into a few mysterious images. The language is beautifully controlled, the melody is exquisite, the vocal is soulfully phrased, and the two guitars play in elegant counterpoint. A gem."
