southern winds lyrics – bonfire

dreamin’ by the fire
at the gulf of mexico
somebody’s playin’ a lovesong
with a six string homesick tone

memories of summer
the first time we made love
and a promise left unspoken
i saw in a shooting star

the southern wind was blowin’
as if he wants to say
the words i whispered in my heart
only yesterday

you’re my only one – my risin’ sun
you’re the air i wanna breathe
girl you’re everything i need
my shining star – that’s what you are
and as long my heart will beat
you’ll be everything – everything i need

the fire is still burning
i was humming to the song
couldn’t think of all the words
so i made them up my own

like a secret door that opens
these words just set me free
and the promise left unspoken
was the owner of the key

oh southern wind keep blowin’
please carry me back home
there’s somebody who is waiting
and i’ve gotta let her know

you’re my only one – my risin’ sun
you’re the air i wanna breathe
girl you’re everything i need
my shining star – that’s what you are
and as long my heart will beat
you’ll be everything – everything i need

and when southern winds are blowin’
they might even bring some rain
but the promise left unspoken
will always be the same
