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

Touch me...
I hear the sound
Of mandolins

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
