the wind and the sun

The words to this song by Jonathan Richman are so achy and true, so simple, yet so special:
Even though I know I am the wind and the sun
I want to turn my back sometimes
Forget the angels sometimes
Do things my own way
Even though I know I am the wind and the sun
I want to put my arm around her
Want to be attached to her
Forget the stars
Even though I know I am the wind
I want to forget
Even though I know I am the sun
I still get afraid sometimes
Afraid
Even though I know I am the wind
Even though I know I am the sun
Buy this song for 99 cents! Heck, buy the whole record, it is magnificent. Truly.
