"Wind at My Back" as written by and Neal Morse....
How can you be
Like a sky stretched out before me
And the world is turning your way
Even darkness is better this way

Can it be true
That it all comes rushing from you
When my resistance is gone
And there's nothing that I can lean on

You are the wind at my back
You give what I lack
You're the jewel in my hand
You're like rain on dry land

You're the focus the beam
You're realities dream
You're the blue in my black
You're the wind at my back

All of the above
I'll have the lot for my love
And as we're becoming somehow
As we're changing the future to now

I just want to live
In the place that you have to give
I'll let the heat beat me down
Until the water comes down

You are the wind at my back
You give what I lack
You're the jewel in my hand
You're like rain on dry land

You're the focus the beam
You're realities dream
You're the blue in my black
You're the wind at my back

You are the wind at my back
You give what I lack
You're the jewel in my hand
You're like rain on dry land

And my soul has been kissed
Just because you exist
You're the dream that's a fact
You're the wind at my back

You're the wish that I make
You're the prize I might take
You're the gold that is free
You're the groom on one knee

You're the focus the beam
You're realities dream
You're the blue in my black
You're the wind at my back

    General CommentGreat song (a bit cheesy lyrics, but so beautifull) Great to have used them as your wedding vows.

    I especially like the line "And my soul has been kissed, Just because you exist". Besides romantic references it can also be used to describe good friendships.

    General CommentThis song was written in Neal's transition time. and by that, I mean byebye Spock's Beard, hello Jesus! There are a number of intentional religious and spiritual overtones on Snow, that is a fact. I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that this song is relating to Jesus being the Wind at all of our backs really, since it's always there.

    "Like a sky stretched out before me" has a clear overtone to how massive Jesus is and how far his love can stretch (even further really)

    "Can it be true that it all comes rushing from you" could possibly have major reference to the Lord providing us with EVERYTHING.

    My OpinionI've always thought that this song is, as far as religious rock songs go, the perfect specimen.

    Standing on its own, it's both a love song to God, but works just as strongly as a love song to another person. Romantic love, friendly love, familial love, love of God–it's all here in this song because the lyrics are just open enough.

    Snow works well with its religious content because it's not all up in your face GOD JESUS GOD THIS SONG IS ABOUT GOD ISN'T GOD GREAT

    It's subtle but solid in its religious under/overtones, which, as far as I'm concerned, gives it all the more weight with its messages. This is a fantastic song about one's source of inspiration and motivation–be it a lover, a friend, or God. And yes, of course, a thinly-veiled reference to Neal's then-recent born again epiphany.
