    Sometimes it's really difficult for me to write at a very specific high emotional moment. It doesn't happen to me often. Usually I'll be in a hotel room or a studio somewhere, messing around on an instrument and you discover something and you put a story or lyrics to it. But rarely is it from the scene of an accident, and you go home and you write about the accident.
    For me, this song is leaving the scene of a death accident. It was the lowest time of my life. I literally went home from the court room where my wife and I both decided that we were going to end things. And even though it was civil. It was the lowest point and the darkest and most lost I've ever felt in my life.

    I went home and the piano became like this refuge. I just sat down and started playing and "The Wind" is what came out of it. That was my safety net. It was like I have to go somewhere. I don't know what else to do. I felt completely lost in the middle of the ocean, and I'm just trying to firm up something of what was going on in my life. Some of the lyrics are very straightforward.

    I connected to the early Eastern explorers who were in the middle of the ocean not knowing where they were and not knowing if they was going to fall off the edge of the earth, or if they were going to discover new land, or if they were ever going to see their families again. That was me. So that song was the first time I ever had the scene of the accident song.

    I think the song is about losing oneself, or someone you love like a girlfriend or boyfriend. Not knowing exactly who you are, or where you are going anymore. "Cause i dont know, i dont know where i am, can you tell me without breaking where i bend, will the wind ever come again?" The wind is almost like a reassurance, reminding you that everything is or will be alright.

    John Chapter 3, Verse 8 "The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”
