The Stranglers – North Winds Blowing Lyrics

Lyrics

I saw an orange road burning
I saw a youth on fire
I saw metal machines that were turning on
A generation that hadn't yet tired

I heard of two generations that were
Being murdered
In a Europe that was shrouded in black
I witnessed the birth pains of new nations
When the chosen people finally went back

North Winds Blowing
I wish they'd blow you all away
North Winds Blowing
I wish they'd blow you all away

I saw a freedom in the shape of disease
And mainly men had to quench their desire
And while a few could do just as they please
I saw kid's whose bellies were all on fire
And then all is dead and war is over
When hollow victory has been won
Who will join in the celebration of
An evil that can't be undone

North Winds Blowing
I wish they'd blow you all away
North Winds Blowing
I wish they'd blow you all away

I use to dream about destruction
Now that I feel it getting near
I spend my time watching the ocean
And waves are all I want to hear

I wish I was a believer
I'd spend less time maybe
In being sad
So many laws against disbelieving
I don't know who's good or who's bad

North Winds Blowing
Blow all away
Blow away
