Oh wind please bring my baby back

Oh Wind please bring my baby back by Starroot

1. Why don’t you come back when the owl is crying,
I dream we are close like two eagles flying
Two clouds in the sky are touching each other
I feel you are near, when you’re far away
CH: Oh Wind please bring my baby back, oh wind please bring my baby back
Over mountains and rivers, green fields and through canyons
Oh Wind please bring my baby back, oh wind please bring my baby back.

2. The sun keeps on shining deep in our hearts now
The river starts whispering in crystal clear sounds
The wind blows my message to you in this moment
A rainbow will tell you, I’m waiting for you

CH: Oh Wind please bring my baby back, oh wind please bring my baby back
Over mountains and rivers, green fields and through canyons
Oh Wind please bring my baby back, oh wind please bring my baby back.

3. Blue night in the mountains, I dance in the moonlight
My arms change to wings in shimmering flight
A star falls from heaven, right into the river
I send it to you in my dream tonight.

CH: Oh Wind please bring my baby back, oh wind please bring my baby back
Over mountains and rivers, green fields and through canyons
Oh Wind please bring my baby back, oh wind please bring my baby back.
