"The Wind" as written by Warren Zevon and Jorge A. Calderon....
(Ooh)

These city lights illuminate your breath
As you tell of all the ways that you feel dead

December left you cold and alone
I'm sorry but I have enough to fear on my own

Dying to care
I'm searching for some solace in this air

(Ooh)

But the wind, it cuts to my bone
The wind, this hollow breath of cold

The snowflakes fall like ashes into dirt
Like every hope that rose and dissolved into hurt

Dying to care
I'm searching for some solace in this air

(Ooh)

But the wind, it cuts to my bone
The wind, this hollow breath of cold
The wind, it cuts to my bone
The wind, in winter’s arms I feel at home

And I won’t let go
But I will take you with me
Right to the end

But the wind, it cuts to my bone
The wind, this hollow breath of cold
The wind, it cuts to my bone
The wind, in winter’s arms I feel at home
I feel at home

    General CommentSeems like a Christmas song in general.
    I feel like The Wind represents the throes that the world offers you, and when he says "I won't let go", he's talking about family & what's important.

    I guess the intro is about an acquaintance venting his problems, so he says he has enough problems of his own..word.
