Song title: Catch the wind
Catch the wind
In the chilly hours and minutes
Of uncertainty, I want to be
In the warm hold of your loving mind
To feel you all around me
And to take your hand, along the sand
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.
One of the many covers played live in the early years. But one of the most important, because this was actually one of the first in which Bruce took lead vocals, since that role at the era (Castiles) was covered by George Theiss.
