  • No wind when I took the watch
    My ship was still and waiting
    I lay on that mirrored sky
    A restless sailor waiting
    I closed my eyes said the
    Words of will for the gentle
    Breathing that moves the seas
    Make my sails fill

    Whisper waves cloud the glass
    Awake at last like a lover
    It rushed around me talking sweet
    Roll over, roll over, roll over
    And in my ear he blew his name
    It sound so strange but I heard it plain
    Mistral, mistral wind

    I have always held the wheel but
    I let the wind steal my power
    Spin me 'round lose my course
    Nights run by like hours
    Well, it would show me the way
    To the deepest mountains
    Too high and beautiful to be
    Mistral, mistral wind

    All the hours on the watch
    I wait for that breeze to move me
    And blow me back to that place
    Magic space all through me
    And I sigh your name
    Across the empty water
    You made a crazy dreamer out of me
    Mistral, mistral, mistral, mistral
