Lyrics

Whoaaa Whoaaaa Whoaaa Whoaaa Whoaaaa!
Hey all (hey all) welcome to the greatest storm
I know (I know) you have waited much too long
And I (and I) I will be your shining star
I'm here (I'm here) here to conquer near and far
Like the sun (the sun) I run (I run)
Into the heat of day
Like a knight (a knight), I'll fight (I'll fight)
Until the fight is won
In a rage (a rage), I'll save (I'll save)
Each and every, each and every, each and everyone
'Til this war is won
And I live to rule by the sword
Slashing through the
Every inch of the power, the power in you
As I sit, as I stand
By the table I command
My kingdom
I'm the knight of the wind
Whoaaa Whoaaaa Whoaaa Whoaaa Whoaaaa!
Hey all, (hey all) welcome to the end, it's near
I know (I know)
I will bring you pain and fear
On the ground (the ground), to the sky (the sky)
Faced with you and I
In a flash (a flash), I'm gone (I'm gone)
Holding your crown high
In a rage (a rage), I'll save (I'll save)
Each and every, each and every, each and everyone
'Til this war is won
And I live to rule by the sword
Slashing through the
Every inch of the power, the power in you
As I sit, as I stand
By the table I command
My kingdom
I'm the knight of the wind
The knight of the wind
I'm the knight of the wind
Our castle is a massive force
A stronghold of power
My armor stays unbreakable
In battle every hour
(Instrumental)
Whoaaa Whoaaaa Whoaaa Whoaaa Whoaaaa!
Like the sun (the sun ) I run (I run)
Into the heat of day
Like a knight (a knight), I'll fight (I'll fight)
Until the fight is won
In a rage (a rage), I save (I save)
Each and every, each and every, each and everyone
'Til this war is won
And I live to rule by the sword
Slashing through the
Every inch of the power, the power in you
As I sit and stand
By the table I command
My kingdom
I'm the knight of the wind
The knight of the wind

Trivia

  • When Crush 40 performed this song live at Summer of Sonic 2010 in London, they changed the lyrics "by the table I command" to "by the table she commands" to be more sensitive towards the British crowd.[1]
  • Also, in the studio version, the line: "Here to conquer near and far" was changed into "Here to take you near and far".[2]
  • There are several versions of this song that play throughout the game, but the full version is first heard during the credits after the completion of the Knight's Tale story.
  • Jun Senoue created an instrumental version of this song that can only be heard on the game's soundtrack.
  • An acoustic version was also created by Hikaru Tanimoto (featured on the soundtrack as well), with a much slower and more mellow pace. Because of this, the song runs considerably longer, at 5:37.
  • Crush 40 posted an exclusive concert of them performing Knight of the Wind on YouTube, taped at ABS studio in Tokyo, Japan, on 31 October 2008.
