I Envy the Wind Lyrics

by Lila Downs

I envy the wind
That whispers in your ear
That calls through the winter
That freezes your fingers

That moves through your hair
That cracks your lips
Chills you to the bone
I envy the wind

I envy the rain
That falls on your face
That wets your eyelashes
That dampens your skin

That touches your tongue
Soaks through your shirt
Drips down your back
I envy the rain

I envy the sun
That brightens your summer
That warms your body
Holds you in heat

That makes your day stronger
Makes you hot
Makes you sweat
I envy the sun

I envy the wind
I envy the rain
I envy the sun
I envy the wind
