The Summer Wind
Madeleine Peyroux Lyrics


The summer wind came blowing in
From across the sea
And it lingered there, so warm and fair
To walk with me

All summer long we sang a song
And strolled on golden sand
Two sweethearts
And the summer wind
Like painted kites, those days and nights
Went flyin' by
The world was new beneath a blue
Umbrella sky

Then softer than a piper man
One day it called to you
And I lost you
To the summer wind

The autumn wind and the winter wind
Have come and gone
And still those days, those lonely days
Go on and on

And guess who sighs her lullabies
Through nights that never end
My fickle friend
The summer wind

The summer wind

Philip Thomas l definitely agree with you.

God can this beautiful woman sing!
A modern day Billie Holiday.

Jonathan Holleb

A lot of people compare them vocally...But, I like that she covers thinks like Eliot Smith, Leonard Cohen, etc.

Pharmer David

Influenced by her, but uniquely different too..!

Brian Hall

Freaking uncanny. She must be a reincarnation.

Brian Eduardo

I agree so like Billie Holiday... its uncanny

Conn Smyth

One of the greatest sax solos I've ever heard....

Que delícia é ouvir Madeleine Peyroux, uma autêntica cantora de jazz, com a bossa das divas do jazz.
