  • The wind that will bring me
    Out to you
    Is a wind that gets singing
    Whipping at the tune

    The same wind comes rushing
    That later lays low
    And it pulls at my edges
    Then continues to blow

    Keep on the horizon
    Keep on the horizon
    Keep on the horizon

    It brings hail from old water
    And a storm on its knees
    And flags from a revolution
    That brought us some peace

    And the trees for their hundred years
    Lean north like calligraphy
    And I'm shaped by my storming
    Like they're shaped by their storming

    Keep at the horizon
    Keep on the horizon
    You found you, I mean you
    Deep on the horizon
    You found you
    Keep on the horizon

    As strong as that wind
    That blew us round the island
    Is a wind that has lasted
    Longer than the past has
    It's a wind that will keep on lasting
    Beyond ever after
    It's a wind that will keep on lasting
    Longer than the past has Writer/s: Leslie Feist
