Midge Ure — When The Winds Blow lyrics

Common people living quietly in confusion
Information's giving quite a grand illusion
Hearts are beating, keeping time
To meet a deadline
Faces pressed against the pane
To watch a headline
When the winds blow I will call
When the winds blow I will call
When the winds blow I will call you
We will stand and watch them fall
All our ships are sailing blindly
Under one sun
Sending signals, calling kindly
Reaching no-one
Echoes sound the shifting air
Of empires calling
Hold my hand, the shifting sand
Of empires falling
When the winds blow I will call
When the winds blow I will call
When the winds blow I will call you
We will stand and watch them fall
Oh we'll stand and watch them fall
We confided, then decided not to follow
All the slogans, taunts and charges
Sound so hollow
With open minds across the border
We have waited
But keeping place within this race is complicated
When the winds blow I will call
When the winds blow I will call
When the winds blow I will call you
We will stand and watch them
When the winds blow I will call
When the winds blow I will call
When the winds blow I will call you
We will stand and watch them fall
Oh we'll stand and watch them fall
