Kris Delmhorst's official video for "Wind's Gonna Find a Way" from her upcoming album 'Long Day In the Milky Way' due out August 14, 2020. Pre-order - HERE!

"'Wind’s Gonna Find a Way' is about persistence, about playing the long game, making yourself inexorable. I wrote this song almost exactly a year ago, but I think it resonates with the present moment in any number of interesting ways. It speaks to the slow work of untangling the stubborn knots in a life, or a history; of devoting yourself to a path, whether it’s creative work or some other calling, or just the rocky journey of being alive." - Kris Delmhorst

Lyrics:

Long day in the Milky Way, hammering my heart against a heavy door
All doubt round about, any use to wonder what the pounding’s for
Don’t worry ‘cause ooh, wind’s gonna find a way
I don’t need no radio, gonna listen to the branches sigh
I know all there is to know about the history of decline

All night chasing fireflies, try to get one more before the dawn
Lord knows it’s a tiny glow to ever light the way for someone further on
Don’t worry ‘cause ooh, wind’s gonna find a way
Don’t want to see no video, I remember every shade of your eye
No one ever really knows about the mystery of desire

Keep on pushing and you find a way through
Keep on pushing and you find a way

No shame in the long game, look around and see that time is all we got
Slow hands in the shadowlands, patient fingers working at the patient knots
Don’t worry ‘cause ooh, wind’s gonna find a way
Can’t you feel the undertow, wants to pull you to the deeper sea
I found out long ago about the power it has over me

Keep on pushing and you find a way through
Keep on pushing and you find a way through
Keep on pushing and you find a way through
Keep on pushing and you find a way
