Ode to My Wife

There’s a great line from Nina Simone’s Wild is the Wind:

You kiss me, and with your kiss my life begins.

I love that line.

The whole song after the jump.

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 hungriness
Let the wind blow through your heart
For wild is the wind

You…
Touch me…
I hear the sound of mandolins
You…
Kiss me…
And 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

  1. I so love the Cat Power cover of that song – her voice is just gorgeous.

  2. Cat Power covered that song?? It’s a little tough to cover a Nina Simone tune. That haunting voice of hers.
