CATCH THE WIND 

 

D

In the chilly hours and minutes,

                          G
Of uncertainty, I want to be,

D                        G         A7     D
In the warm hold of your loving mind.

To feel you all around me,

                                   G
And to take your hand, along the sand,

D                               G          A7          D
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind.

When sundown pales the sky,
I wanna hide a while, behind your smile,
And everywhere I'd look, your eyes I'd find.

For me to love you now,
Would be the sweetest thing, 'twould make me sing,
Ah, but I may as well, try and catch the wind.

When rain has hung the leaves with tears,
I want you near, to kill my fears
To help me to leave all my blues behind.

For standin' in your heart,
Is where I want to be, and I long to be,
Ah, but I may as well, try and catch the wind.
