  • She's like the wind through my tree
    She rides the night next to me
    She leads me through moonlight
    Only to burn me with the sun
    She's taken my heart
    But she doesn't know what she's done

    Feel her breath on my face
    Her body close to me
    Can't look in her eyes
    She's out of my league
    Just a fool to believe
    I have anything she needs
    She's like the wind

    I look in the mirror and all I see
    Is a young old man with only a dream
    Am I just fooling myself
    That she'll stop the pain
    Living without her
    I'd go insane

    Feel her breath on my face
    Her body close to me
    Can't look in her eyes
    She's out of my league
    Just a fool to believe
    I have anything she needs
    She's like the wind

    Feel your breath in my face
    Your body close to me
    Can't look in your eyes
    You're out of my league
    Just a fool to believe
    (Just a fool to believe) she's like the wind

    Just a fool to believe (just a fool to believe)
    She's like the wind (just a fool to believe)
    Just a fool to believe (just a fool to believe)
    She's like the wind
    Just a fool to believe (just a fool to believe)
    She's like the wind
    Just a fool
    She's like the wind
    She's like the wind
    Just a fool
    She's like the wind, just a fool Writer/s: Patrick Swayze, Stacy Widelitz

  • Jennifer Lynne Hensley from United States Of AmericaThey'll never be anyone as great as Patrick Swayze!
  • Kevin from UsaI don't understand how these "facts" are those at all. One of them says the song was #1 in the US while another says it topped at #3. Wikipedia backs up the #3 claim. How is the #1 claim allowed to be on the page? [The soundtrack album was #1, the song went to #3 - editor]
  • Jamie/fan Of Patrick Swayze from UsaYou’re very wrong about why he wrote it. He wrote it for Lisa, his wife and he says this many times and I even have one of the interviews where he states that fact. I’m a huge fan of Patrick and this story is wrong.
