Lyric of the Week: FREE AS THE WIND

Free free

As free as the wind

That’s the way I want to be

Free free

As free as the wind

That’s the way it’ll always be


Wind whipping through my hair feeling real psyched

Kicking up a cloud of dust on my motorbike

Riding like a wild spirit look at me go

Speeding through the desert of New Mexico

Hang gliding over the Rocky Mountains

Fifteen thousand feet up but who’s countin’?

Flying like an eagle to the sea

I’m as free as the wind as the wind could be


Free free ...


Riding on my horse across the great plains

Keeping a steady gallop as I hang onto the reins

Riding like cowboy with the world at my feet

Built for speed moving fast and fleet

Sailing through the wide blue San Francisco Bay

Kicking a cool mist of ocean spray

Gliding like a water bird so gracefully

I’m as free as the wind as the wind could be


Free free ...


I wear my freedom triumphantly

I’m as free as the wind as the wind could be

Motorcycle speeding across the desert
Riding like a wild spirit look at me go / speeding through the desert of New Mexico.

I wrote this one in the thick of my army years in Israel, when I would daydream about what it would be like once I finished my service and went back to the USA. I remembered a conversation I had with several friends when we must have been ten or eleven years old, about what kind of car we saw ourselves driving when we'd get older; one friend said he didn't want a car, but he wanted a motorcycle, because he wanted to be "free as the wind," and that became the kernel from which this song grew. Musically, I imagined it having a sort of uptempo, "galloping" kind of rhythm similar to Dire Straits' "Solid Rock." It was one of those songs I wrote to keep myself sane during a time in my life that often felt anything but. Never recorded or performed.
