SYMI WIND
(Music and Lyrics by Steve McAndrew)

Verse 1
eyes straining Northwards to the jewel of the aegean sea
itchy feet longing to step once more on the isle where time runs free
via Panormitis or straight to the 'new town' shore
the smell of the herbs, the donkey's call, oh to be caressed once more

Chorus 1
(by the) SYMI WIND, SYMI WIND, SYMI WIND, SYMI WIND

Verse 2
bobbing like a cork at midnight on the waves of sesklia sound
contemplating the depths of all the friendships we have found
phosphor sparks fly from the bow and sparkle in the wake
"parakalo", "ena ouzo my friend", and "yamas" for old times sake

Chorus 2
(and the) SYMI WIND, SYMI WIND, SYMI WIND, SYMI WIND

Middle 8
we hope she staves off time's changing hours
though any friend of symi's will be a friend of ours
will be a true friend of ours

Chorus 3
(and that) SYMI WIND, SYMI WIND, SYMI WIND, SYMI WIND

Verse 3
we climb the kali strata to our rooms on chorio hill
the yialos waves crash wildly, while the pedi waves lie still
conversations with well-etched faces, toothless grins and symi wine
this love will last forever and will stand the test of time

Chorus 4
(fueled by the) SYMI WIND, SYMI WIND, SYMI WIND, SYMI WIND

OUTRO
Blow on forever.............Our SYMI WIND


Comment:- This is yet another version recorded at the request of Steve Smith, a regular returnee to the island of Symi. It has only acoustic guitar and solo vocal and was mixed on the second of February 2018.
