QuotesEdit

Andy (on the demo): “I bought my (ex) wife a flute and I was going to use it. Lots of you seem to think that this song is about Terry Chambers leaving XTC. I can see your logic. Words like ‘snare’, ‘stool’, ‘imprisoned in your drumbeat’ etc. Any connection is purely unconscious from my end, I was simply looking for ways to describe breaking free from a restrictive relationship. Do you know, you put a bloody good case for it though. Now you've got me doubting my own intentions.”

LyricsEdit

Me and the wind are celebrating your loss

Me and the wind are pulling kites and pushing tress

Me and the wind are celebrating your loss

Me and the wind are feeling freer than air should ever be

Should ever be should ever be should ever


And when you lured me into your syrup

All I could think of was what a lovely way

for me to go

I never really realised that

Just like the struggling summer flies that

I was drowning no matter how sweet or how slow


Have I been such a fool

Have I been sitting on your stool

While you cracked the whip

While you cracked the whip


Me and the wind are celebrating your loss

Me and the wind are pulling kites and pushing tress

Me and the wind are celebrating your loss

Me and the wind are feeling freer than air should ever be

Should ever be should ever be should ever


I danced imprisoned in your drumbeat

Your tune of spring had me whirling like a mad march

Merry hare

It never really came to mind that

just as the huntress wires bind that

The strings of your instrument were strangling me

Inside their snare


Have I been such a fool

Have I been sitting on your stool

While you held the hoop

While you held the hoop


Now that I'm out and I'm shouting in doorways

Freed from a love more like murder

I should be singing but in liberation

Feel like a ship with no rudder


Me and the wind are celebrating your loss

Have I been such a fool

Me and the wind are celebrating your loss

Have I been such a fool

Me and the wind are celebrating your loss

Have I been such a fool

Me and the wind are celebrating your loss

Have I been such a fool
