The Ways of the Wind
P.M. Dawn Lyrics


Holding on is like the ways of the wind,
Holding on is like the ways of the wind

I wore a ring that was taken so hastely,
Thinking naively that it guaranteed my safety
I'm looking at eyes that have stumbled across a shooting star
Saying that's alright, I know the kind of man you are

Holding on is like the ways of the wind,
Holding on is like the ways of the wind

How many things I recall I can't take too far
She's good at collecting
and counting on the things you are
Forever racing the flames she loved to put me through
I was never a good seahorse
But I can practice rides on you
Another world, another space,
another mind insists I'm crying
I once experienced time with you
Now a ll exists through rage and sighing
Simon says I love you
But not as much as you display
Who says its alright
Then Simon says she's yesterday

Holding on is like the ways of the wind
Like holding on a Nova Star
Holding on is like the ways of the wind
The constant search for who you are

Oh, life

Underneath love's theme lies a superficial chain
Whatever seduced the barrier
Thinks everything should stay the same
I'm meeting mind say,
Hi I think I love you
I never used to run from love
But calculate what I've been through.
Whatever love, whatever vibe,
Whenever I'm convinced you're lying
Ask me for my mind and I
Will ask you why your sighs are dying
Introduce the melancholy
I've felt since last I saw you
You say it's alright
But I'm crushed till it decides upon you

Holding on is like the ways of the wind
I only hope you'll understand
Holding on is like the ways of the wind
finding you've no place to stand

Send my deepest sympathy
To the flowers of December's garden.
What's for sale of you're emotions.
Tell me. Trust can't buy me love.
Well, that's OK
Tell me of your adventures, you know.
I bet I could survive the wind if
Curiosity's killed the snow for real.

Holding on is like the ways of the wind
Like holding on a Nova Star
Holding on is like the ways of the wind
The constant search for who you are
Holding on is like the ways of the wind
Like holding on a Nova Star
Holding on is like the ways of the wind
Finding a place to stand

PM Dawn “The Ways of the Wind” Lyrics


Holding on, is like the ways of the wind
Holding on, is like the ways of the wind

I wore a ring that was taken so hastily
Thinking naively that it guaranteed my safety
I'm looking at eyes that, have stumbled across a shooting star
Saying that's alright, I know the kind of man you are

Holding on, is like the ways of the wind
Holding on, is like the ways of the wind

How many things I recall I can't take too far
She's good at collecting, and counting on the things you are
Forever racing the flames she loved to put me through
I was never a good seahorse, but I can practice rides on you

Another world another space, another mind insists I'm crying
I once experienced time with you, now all exists through rage and sighing
Simon says, "I love you, but not as much as you display"
Who says it's alright, then Simon says, "She's yesterday"

(Holding on)…
Holding on is like the ways of the wind
(Is like the ways of the wind)…
It's like holding on a Nova Star
(Holding on)…
Holding on is like the ways of the wind
(Is like the ways of the wind)…
The constant search for who you are… oh life

Underneath love's theme lies a superficial chain
Whatever seduced the barriers, thinks everything should stay the same
I'm meeting my mind say “Hi I think I love you”
I never used to run from love, but calculate what I've been through

Whatever love, whatever vibe, whenever I'm convinced you're lying
Ask me for my mind and I will, ask you why your sighs are dying
Introduce the melancholy I've felt since last I saw you
You say it's alright, but I'm crushed till it decides upon you

(Holding on)…
Holding on is like the ways of the wind
(Is like the ways of the wind)…
I only hope you'll understand
(Holding on)…
Holding on is like the ways of the wind
(Is like the ways of the wind)…
Finding you've no place to stand

Send my deepest sympathy, to the flowers of December's garden
What's for sale of your emotions, tell me, trust can't buy me love, well, 
That's okay, tell me of your adventures, you know
I bet I could survive the wind if, curiosity killed the snow for real

(Holding on)…
Holding on is like the ways of the wind
(Is like the ways of the wind)…
Like holding on a Nova Star
(Holding on)…

I cannot say enough how amazing their music was, still is and always will be. This is true musicianship and artistry. It continues to blow my mind and could easily blow many "musicians" out of the water..

Robert Scarborough

Brings back a lot of memories. It was around 1993 when I first heard this back home in Va Beach. Was going through a lot of stuff in a relationship. Anyway I would put the headphones on and just chill at a nice spot on the beach. Just took me to another world.

Devon K

Those vocal harmonies are unreal..

Jdj3bro

This song is timeless and one of my all time favorite songs. I think The Bliss Album is their best album. There are quite a few great songs on this one.

+John Morgan (jdj3bro)
absolutely their best album. and if you listen to it straight throug, you kind of get a all around musical experience from mainstream beats to covers to rap

Nathan Black

NO MATTER HOW OLD THIS SONG GETS I WILL ALWAYS LOVE IT. THIS REALLY HAVE LOTS OF MEANING.

Damon Simmons

How wonderful a band can be. Unfortunately not enough pure people in the world. Lyrics on high. I have yet to see a more talented 2 piece so to speak. Some of the best lyric written. Yo Prince B/ I know it has been hard with all the BS and emotion that follows,Remember you are not alone and remember that you are loved.. Remember you are only a messenger and remember that you are you. In the Presence of Mirrors I come face to face with you, which is me, which is me. Thank you for all the great trips you allowed me to follow. Thank you for being you :)

Chris Springer

Used to jam this whole album.

René Olivierre

I love how they took Joni Mitchell's "I Had A King" song and put a totally different spin on the track. These guys were way ahead of their time for sure.
