Follow the Sun

As we enter May, with summer just around the corner, our next featured song embraces the warmth that lies ahead. “Follow the Sun” by Xavier Rudd focuses on humanity’s connection to nature and the peace that comes with slowing down to connect with the earth, focusing on the here and now, and remembering the promise of a new day to come. The song resonates calm, warmth, and the peace found within the elements of the earth. It’s a wonderful reminder in our busy lives to slow down and absorb the beauty of the world around us. Lyrics to “Follow the Sun” can be found at the bottom of the post.

“Follow the Sun” by Xavier Rudd

Follow, follow the sun
And which way the wind blows
When this day is done
Breathe, breathe in the air
Set your intentions
Dream with care
Tomorrow’s a new day for everyone
A brand new moon and brand new sun

So follow, follow the sun
The direction of the birds
The direction of love
Breathe, breathe in the air
Cherish this moment
Cherish this breath
Tomorrow’s a new day day for everyone
A brand new moon, brand new sun

When you feel life coming down on you like a heavy weight
When you feel this crazy society adding to the strain
Take a stroll to the nearest water’s edge, remember your place
Many moons have risen and fallen long, long before you came
So which way is the wind blowing
What does your heart say

So follow, follow the sun
And which way the wind blows
When this day is done
