Lyrics

Wild Like the Wind (Fishing)

Written By: Monique Topolski-Hill

Wild Like The Wind

He says he's gonna go fishing, or maybe go for a ride

Maybe he'll have a time or two with his buddies by his side

cause he's WILD LIKE THE WIND

He never was one for school, he rather drive in his car

they would find him down by the riverside just strumming on his guitar

cause he's WILD LIKE THE WIND

Now that he's much older, he says he's gonna settle down

and find him a women he could love so much that he would quit

his messing around

cause he's WILD LIKE THE WIND

Harvest Night

Written By: Monique Hill

Harvest Night

The band played a waltz and we dance to a tune
Under the stars and that harvest moon
The wind seemed to whisper a blessing our way
We took our vows, forever we stay
Until the end of time

It was a Harvest night
I always dreamed theired be love by my side
A lover and a friend
Someone so true, I wouldn't have to pretend
someone to hold me tight
On a cold harvest night

Our wedding was simple with family and such
My dress was satin so soft to your touch
now many years passed but the feeling remains
Were getting older but somethings don't change
And it seems it was yesterday
(Repeat Chorus)
As the years pass
We share many things
My cold feet in winter, your garden in spring
Hot summer days and wlaks on the beach
Two cats that live in the house that we keep
I'm so glad I said alright
