Song Description

This hits me as something Steely Dan might have done had they gone the spiritual route. A cool mid-tempo groove with some interesting chord changes based on F minor.

Story Behind the Song

For several years this song was just music and a title until last year when a book I'd been reading, "Buddhism Without Beliefs" helped to shed some light on the subject of living in the moment, which is something that doesn't always come easily to me.

Lyrics

Winds Of Change

riding, riding?

I?m riding on the winds of change
where nothing ever stays the same
an endless Grand Parade of trading places
as mountains someday seas become
as planets fall back into suns
I too shall die
so, laugh or cry,
I live with knowing all we have is now?

I?m riding on the winds
the winds of change
riding, riding on the winds
the winds of change

I?m living in an angry world
dancing with a royal girl
there?s no one who could match the queen who crowns me
am I supposed to be ok
with knowing there will come a day
she goes away,
it all goes away
tell me brother,
would that work for you?

I?m riding on the winds
the winds of change
riding, riding on the winds
where nothing stays the same
we change, we change, we change?

be still?
if your birth doesn?t show you your death will
your gift is this moment waiting for you
listen, boy
for your sadness, it?s part of your joy
and it?s all the same, anyway

riding, riding?

we?re riding on the winds of change
where nothing of itself remains
so desperately we cling to our forevers
but really through the day-by-day
we know that nothing?s here to stay
there?s no clinging to
this Passion Play
just breathing out and breathing in again?

we?re riding on the winds
the winds of change
riding, riding on the winds
and nothing stays the same
we change, we change, we change?
