Wind’s on Fire


Are you sick of things being “cosmically connected” yet? Hopefully the answer is a resounding no. I am starting to believe the more I write about these serendipitous connections, the more I see them, the more they find me. So this morning, right after “When I Drink” came on my favorite Pandora station, this song made its perfect little appearance.

“Wind’s on Fire,” Yonder Mountain String Band

Let a little light in your heart
A wild goose chase, the morning star
Any old light that shine to me
Let a little light in your heart

Burn away the fog of fear
that brings your eyes forever near
Look-y, look-y, look-y here
Burn away the fog of fear

Days and days on end
Ain’t the wind on fire, don’t it call to you
Restless, restless friend,
Ain’t you higher than you’ve ever been

Look at the size of your skin
Where it ends and it begins
Keep on tearin’ your world apart
Look at the size of your soul

Hang that ol’ hangin’ judge
The highest tree, it ain’t enough
Keep on tearin’ your soul apart
Look at the size of the world

Days and days on end
The machines will love you to bring you down
Restless, restless friend,
Ain’t you higher than you’ve ever been

Let a little light in your heart
A wild goose chase, the morning star
Any old light that shine to me
Let a little light in your heart

Days and days on end

Ain’t the wind on fire, don’t it call to you
Restless, restless friend,
Ain’t you higher than you’ve ever been

Ahhh…
What is the little light in your heart?
