Donovan: Catch the Wind, Colours

Donovan (Donovan Phillips Leitch), es un cantautor, poeta y guitarrista escocés nacido el 10 de mayo de 1946, en Maryhill, Glasgow. Emergió a mediados de los '60 como cantante folk, lo que le valió ser llamado el Bob Dylan británico en sus inicios, pero pronto se convirtió en uno de los mayores representantes de la psicodelia de mediados y finales de los sesenta, con un estilo muy personal que fusionaba Jazz, Folk, Rock, y Música étnica.

Catch the Wind

In the chilly hours and minutes,
Of uncertainty, I want to be,
In the warm hold of your loving mind.

To feel you all around me,
And to take your hand, along the sand,
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind.

When sundown pales the sky,
I wanna hide a while, behind your smile,
And everywhere I'd look, your eyes I'd find.

For me to love you now,
Would be the sweetest thing, 'twould make me sing,
Ah, but I may as well, try and catch the wind.

When rain has hung the leaves with tears,
I want you near, to kill my fears
To help me to leave all my blues behind.

For standin' in your heart,
Is where I want to be, and I long to be,
Ah, but I may as well, try and catch the wind.



Colours

Yellow is the colour of my true love's hair
In the mornin' when we rise,
In the mornin' when we rise,
That's the time, that's the time,
I love the best.

Blue's the colour of the sky
In the mornin' when we rise,
In the mornin' when we rise.
That's the time, that's the time
I love the best.

Green's the colour of the sparklin' corn
In the mornin' when we rise,
In the mornin' when we rise.
That's the time, that's the time
I love the best.

Mellow is the feeling that I get
When I see her, mm hmm,
When I see her, uh huh.
That's the time, that's the time
I love the best.

Freedom is a word I rarely use
Without thinkin', mm hmm,
Without thinkin', mm hmm,
Of the time, of the time
When I've been loved.
