Hidden Gems – Mistral Wind

This band is very well known. Two of the most amazing artists. These sisters are gifted songwriters and performers. Their album Dog and Butterfly was incredibly successful. The title track became a signature ballad hit for them. There is a song, however, that many won’t know. It is an intensely powerful song. Anne Wilson’s voice is one of the most singularly intense instruments that will grab you and shake you to your core. This song is about inspiration, creativity and, often, the craziness that comes with it. I share the song with you, now, and will share something else later. Here is the song Mistral Wind by the band Heart.

“Mistral Wind”

No wind when I took the watch
My ship was still and waitin’
I lay on that mirrored sky
A restless sail or waitin’
I closed my eyes said the
Words of will for the gentle
Breathin’ that moves the seas
Make my sails fill

Whisper waves cloud the glass
Awake at last like a lover
It rushed around the talkin’ sweet
Roll over, roll over, roll over
And in my ear he blew his name
It sound so strange but I heard it plain
Mistral Mistral wind

I have always held the wheel but
I let the wind steal my power
Spin me ’round lose my course
Nights run be like hours
Well, it would show me the way
To the deepest mountains
Too high and beautiful to be
Mistral, mistral wind

All the hours on the watch
I wait for that breeze to move me
And blow me back to that place
Magic space all through me
And I sigh your name
Across the empty water
You made a crazy dreamer out of me
Mistral, mistral, mistral, mistral,
Mistral, mistral
