And I open my eyes
As the sun leaves the western sky
Precious memory dies
Once again you are here at my side

Blow wind blow
Through my heart let the four winds blow
And I'm back on the hill
Yes you've gone but you're with me still
Now I'm way down the line
Yes you're gone but you're still on my mind
Blow wind blow

Through my heart let the four winds blow
I've been walking with strangers and talking all out of my mind
While the dogs in the manger, elusive and so hard to find
Conversations with angels, I seek the dimensional key
I been wheeling and dealing whatever will bring you to me

Blow wind blow
Through my heart let the four winds blow
Blow wind blow
Through my heart let the four winds blow
I've been walking with strangers and talking all out of my mind
Now the dogs in the manger, elusive and so hard to find
Conversations with angels, I seek the dimensional key
I been wheeling and dealing whatever will bring you to me

    =Great Line

    I really don't know if you're supposed to take this song literally. Sounds like the persons is a bit insane, which is really good for music....LOL.

    The song also has a western/rock/eerie/ kind of feel to it. To me, it's like someone is standing in line to heaven searching for someone.

    General CommentEzekiel 37:9 - Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.

    From Wikipedia: "Within the system of Thelema founded by Aleister Crowley in 1904, the Holy Guardian Angel is the "Silent Self", representative of one's truest divine nature."... "Even though the HGA is, in a sense, the “higher self”, it is often experienced as a separate being, independent from the adept. In the system of Thelema, the single most important goal is to consciously connect with one’s HGA, a process termed “Knowledge and Conversation.” By doing so, the magician becomes fully aware of his own True Will."

    I'm still working on "dimensional key" maybe the Key of Solomon?

    General CommentThe Four Winds - A. Crowley



    THE South wind said to the palms:
    My lovers sing me psalms;
    But are they as warm as those
    That Laylah's lover knows?

    The North wind said to the firs:
    I have my worshippers;
    But are they as keen as hers?

    The East wind said to the cedars:
    My friends are no seceders;
    But is their faith to me
    As firm as his faith must be?

    The West wind said to the yews:
    My children are pure as dews;
    But what of her lover's muse?

    So to spite the summer weather
    The four winds howled together.

    But a great Voice from above
    Cried: What do you know of love?

    Do you think all nature worth
    The littlest life upon earth? {179}

    I made the germ and the ant,
    The tiger and elephant.

    In the least of these there is more
    Than your elemental war.

    And the lovers whom ye slight
    Are precious in my sight.

    Peace to your mischief-brewing!
    I love to watch their wooing.

    Of all this Laylah heard
    Never a word.

    She lay beneath the trees
    With her lover at her knees.

    He sang of God above
    And of love.

    She lay at his side
    Well satisfied,

    And at set of sun
    They were one.

    Before they slept her pure smile curled;
    "God bless all lovers in the World!"

    And so say I the self-same word;
    Nor doubt God heard.
