yeess...that´s pretty much it, but I can repeat the question for those who so wish (everyone else close your eyes). What is a zephyr? There, I said it. I really would appriciate some answers (one is more than enough, if correct). Or then maybe I should go get a dictonary instead? Näähh..it´s probably easier this way...

A breath of wind or a mild west wind.

A zephyr is a - somewhat poetical - synonym for a small breeze. "Zephyrus" (stressed on either the 1st or the 2nd syllable, I don't know) was, afaik, the name of some minor deity or something in Greek mythology.

EDIT: Obviously the time I spent looking in the dictionary was too long... :P

Thank you very much. Now I finally understand (hmm - do I really?) what "The Zephyr Song" (RHCP) is all about. And by the way...has anyone ever seen such on missplaced topic as this one, anyway?

Seen what?

Don't expect the expected
expect the unexpected
if you expect the expected
I expect you will remain unexpected.

Who knows?

What I want to know is what in the hell the Chili Peppers were smoking when they wrote that song.
