RIDE LIKE THE WIND BY CHRISTOPHER CROSS

RIDE LIKE THE WIND BY CHRISTOPHER CROSS

LYRICS

It is the night
My body’s weak
I’m on the run
No time to sleep
I’ve got to ride
Ride like the wind
To be free again
And I’ve got such a long way to go (such a long way to go)
To make it to the border of Mexico
So I’ll ride like the wind
Ride like the wind
I was born the son of a lawless man
Always spoke my mind with a gun in my hand
Lived nine lives
Gunned down ten
Gonna ride like the wind
And I’ve got such a long way to go (such a long way to go)
To make it to the border of Mexico
So I’ll ride like the wind
Ride like the wind
Gonna ride like the wind
Accused and tried and told to hang
I was nowhere in sight when the church bells rang
Never was the kind to do as I was told
Gonna ride like the wind before I get old
It is the night
My body’s weak
I’m on the run
No time to sleep
I’ve got to ride
Ride like the wind
To be free again
And I’ve got such a long way to go (such a long way to go)
To make it to the border of Mexico
So I’ll ride like the wind
Ride like the wind
And I’ve got a long way to go (such a long way to go)
To make it to the border of Mexico
So I’ll ride like the wind
Ride like the wind
Gonna ride like the wind
Ride!
Gonna ride like the wind
Ride!

Oh what a privilege to own
A music phone.
Let’s me ride the wind
To the border of ecstasy’s sin.
Set’s me free
to be Pleasure’s closest kin.

Oh what a pleasure it is
To own a music phone.

I share my own space
with twinkling glory
in plethora of grace
resplendent on my own pace
riding out this troublesome time
in placidity of mind..

To hold entwined
ambiguities of life
on gentle clouds
aligning my choices
to flicker in candle wishes
of feather bed stories.

We fly through the night
riding words we know
winds around take us
no one knows we’re here.

Never been one to follow
night’s beckoning allure
restless like the ocean
searching for your shore.

Amused you stay with me
eyeing me in Moon’s light 
drifting together 
we follow our hearts.

Very sweetly, romantically done.

That guitar solo is really hot
makes me realize the skills I’ve got
now to go do the things he reminded me to do.
I gotta go finish a new song or two.
