Lyrics
I had a love and my love was fair
Fair as a summer's dawn
I lost my love, I never knew where
Suddenly she was gone
The west wind's purple meadow
The night she slipped away
And I seem to glimpse her shadow
When the west wind brushes the day

West wind, can you waken my true love
West wind, can you restore a new love
Speak to her softly of the dream we lost
The theme we lost, the gleam we lost

West wind, can you call back an old love
West wind, can you kindle a cold love
West wind, can the magic of them become out once again
Breathe on the amber
If I try to remember
Then some day at last we
Can recapture the past
