The Wild Wind is Silenced

[The Wild Wind is Silenced]

Sadness. She is gone.

Nina Simone dies at the age of 70.

I would listen to her and she'd make me want to cry . . .

Wild Is The Wind

Love me love me love me
Say you do
Let me fly away
With you
For my love is like
The wind
And wild is the wind

Give me more
Than one caress
Satisfy this
Let the wind
Blow through your heart
For wild is the wind

You . . .
Touch me . . .
I hear the sound
Of mandolins
You . . .
Kiss me . . .
With your kiss
My life begins
You're spring to me
All things
To me

Don't you know you're
Life itself
Like a leaf clings
To a tree
Oh my darling,
Cling to me
For we're creatures
Of the wind
And wild is the wind
So wild is the wind

Wild is the wind
Wild is the wind

-- (1957) Dimitri Tiomkin & Ned Washington
