Cold Western Wind

Cold Western Wind
(Harmony James – J Albert & Sons)

All alone out in the desert sands, the desolate open lands
Where the August winds blow right on through you
You drift off to sleep, to the sound of the windmill wheel
turning and turning still
You wake and you watch for a falling star
Oh, hey I’ve been there too, and I think I know how you must be feeling tonight
Oh, oh & ain’t it true, here its only you, its just you and that cold western wind

Way out here you can be so anonymous, there’s no-one to know your stuff
And frankly you’re not sure they’d care to anyway
Your days are ablaze with the heat of the burning sun, it keeps right on coming up
You wait and you watch till it sets again
Oh, hey I’ve been there too, and I think I know how you must be feeling tonight
Oh, oh & ain’t it true, here it’s only you, its just you and that cold western wind

Firelight, with your hands round your coffee cup, knuckles all busted up
You turn up your collar to block the chill
The embers die down as you lie on your back again
Stare at the sky and then you wait and you watch for a falling star
Oh, hey I’ve been there too, I think I know how you must be feeling tonight
Oh, oh & ain’t it true, here it’s only you, it’s just you and that cold western wind
Here it’s only you; it’s just you and that cold western wind
