Me and the wind are celebrating your loss 
Me and the wind are pulling kites and pushing tress 
Me and the wind are celebrating your loss 
Me and the wind are feeling freer than air should ever be

And when you lured me into your syrup 
All I could think of was what a lovely way for me to go 
I never really realised that 

Just like the struggling summer flies that 
I was drowning no matter how sweet or how slow 

Have I been such a fool 
Have I been sitting on your stool 
While you cracked the whip

I danced imprisoned in your drumbeat 
Your tune of spring had me whirling like a mad march 
Merry hare 
It never really came to mind that 

The strings of your instrument were strangling me 
Inside their snare 

Have I been such a fool 
Have I been sitting on your stool 
While you held the hoop 
While you held the hoop 

Now that I'm out and I'm shouting in doorways 
Freed from a love more like murder 
I should be singing but in liberation 
Feel like a ship with no rudder 

Me and the wind are celebrating your loss 
Have I been such a fool
