"I Envy The Wind" as written by and Lucinda Williams....
I envy the wind
That whispers in your ear
That howls through the winter
That freezes your fingers
That moves through your hair
And cracks your lips
That chills you to the bone
I envy the wind

I envy the rain
That falls on your face
That wets your eyelashes
and dampens your skin
And touches your tongue
And soaks through your shirt
And drips down your back
I envy the rain

I envy the sun
That brightens your summer
That warms your body
And holds you in her heat
That makes your days longer
And makes you hot
And makes you sweat
I envy the sun
I envy the wind, I envy the rain, I envy the sun, I envy the wind

    General CommentThe imagery is so rich, the sentiment you can feel.
    So much thought and longing went into this song, it is
    hard to imagine someone reading the words and not
    being moved. Love...lost and the elements tough him
    when she cannot, he feels the elements as well and
    this hurts. This songs can make me cry if I think
    about it too much because I feel the way she did
    when she wrote this about someone who touched her
    soul.

    General Commenti think it's about wanting someone who doesn't see you[that way].It makes u actually feel and see what she wants so vividly...truely beautiful.I just wish she put something about the moon it.
