Liner Notes: 

Lyric written in response to Corinne's Sunday evening skirmish, with the theme: Whispering wind.

Took 19 minutes, so obviously needs a tweek or two, or ten Wink

Collabs welcome (please see collab info on my profile page)

Lyrics: 

v1
I am the voice, the muttering you hear
But can never really place
And never really know, it's there.
But it is, because it doesn't ever leave you alone.

Chorus
And I am waiting,
Waiting for my turn, to come
Waiting for the chance, to run
And hide, so still, alone.
I am the voice.
I am the voice of the wind.

v2
I am the voice, the one that drives you mad
When you're watching something cool
But your hair whips in your eyes, so fast.
Only I, calling you to come and follow me.

Chorus
And I am waiting,
Waiting for my turn, to come
Waiting for the chance, to run
And hide, so still, alone.
I am the voice.
I am the voice of the wind.

Bridge
The chance to be still
And sing to myself
It's so strong it's in my will
The chance to be whole
So full of peace
It's so strong it's in my will

Chorus
And I am waiting,
Waiting for my turn, to come
Waiting for the chance, to run
And hide, so still, alone.
I am the voice.
I am the voice of the wind.

Wonderfully rich and beautifully rendered personification of the wind! I love that chorus and could almost see a vision of the wind whispering as I read it. The bridge is absolutely gorgeous in its poetry. Brilliant write!

Looking at the lyrics...oh wow, I love that opening line I am the voice, the muttering you hear...very nice. It doesn't ever leave you alone...yep. Chorus...I am the voice of the wind...nice. v2...the one that drives you mad...yep. Very visual with the hair whipping. The bridge continues to give the wind a personality, one of being an entity or something supernatural. Chorus and out...you killed it Amanda, nice job on this.

there's alot of mystery and intrigue in this lyric- nicely done! atmospheric and thought provoking!

How original; to come from the point of view of the wind seemingly as a disembodied spirit. Great potential for a very cool and somewhat scary song. You might want to collab with acousticmaddie on this one.

I really liked this and now I'm afraid to breath. It's a rather windy night here in São Paulo so, it may not have been the best read... for the faint of heart. I loved the slight threat that appears at times. Very good.
