Original Song – “Answered The Wind”

Answered The Wind is a rhetorical song where the singer asks his or her soul, the wind, the dark and finally no one at all – questions concerning life and their future. Finally the wind answers back saying “Only time will tell.”  There are always questions about life that we have no answer for and we often flail away trying to find answers to things we can’t know.  I suppose the best response to these questions is always that we’ll never know the answers to some questions in this life, but one day everything will be made known and visible to us for our understanding, “Why is it so, Asked a man to no one at all, Only time will tell, Answered the wind…”

I recorded my original song “Answered The Wind” on Set Two in 1996, and it speaks to life’s questions about the future and where our lives will take us, “Why is it so, Asked a man to no one at all, Only time will tell, Answered the wind…” Enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark

(Note: Gmaj7* and Esus4* represent easier to play versions or ‘shortcuts’ to these two guitar chords.  Emailed versions of these songs lose their chord alignment and formatting, so refer to the original post and/or the scanned lyric sheet as your guide!)
