(intro music by David Paich; lyrics and music by James Seals and Dan Seals, 1974)
From the albums UNBORN CHILD (1974) and LIFT UP YOUR VOICES AND SING, VOL. 3 (1997).
Windflowers, my father told me not to go near them, he feared them always,
Said they carried him away.
Windflowers, I couldn't wait to touch them, to smell them, I held them closely.
Now I cannot break away.
Their sweet bouquet disappears like a vapor in the desert. Take a warning, son.
Windflowers, their beauty captures every young dreamer who lingers near them.
Ancient windflowers, I love you.
