Downwind

music by Rick Mealey, Paula Naveda, and Josh Walsh

lyrics by Rick Mealey

 

Driving some blue highway out of Lexington, Kentucky

the fragrance hit me blind-side, stopped the car to have a pull

soothed me like a wavebreak, Lord I smiled just like a baby

I closed my eyes and drifted and I filled my lungs up full

 

the air was ripe with citrus as the wind died down to nothing

a wisp of cotton candy or the roses by the bay

and I wonder where you’re headed now and whether you can feel it too

are the clouds as brilliant there or is it night or day

 

all in all

all in all

all and all is gonna be all right

all in all

all in all

everything is gonna be all right

all right

 

relaxing on the van rack with the real fine smoke-and-a-joke now

halfway up and halfway down, the hill, the vibe, our lives

the lightning finds the target and the rain streaks up my windshield

I laugh to feel it cleansing me, I can’t believe my eyes

 

if you were traveling with me now, you’d do what I am doing

you’d go off by yourself and take a good breath of the air

but even though you’re gone now, we still will carry on now

alive to move along now here and there and everywhere

 

all in all

all in all

all and all is gonna be all right

all in all

all in all

everything is gonna be all right

all right

 

pulling in and winding down in Columbia, Missouri

shadows long behind me and a wind is at my back

the evening air embraces me, it coats me like your lover’s touch

it’s you and cotton candy till my memory fades to black

 

all in all

all in all

all and all is gonna be all right

all in all

all in all

everything is gonna be all right

 

it’s all right… all right

 

you and me are gonna be all right

all right

 

it’s gonna be all right now, yeah
