      About "North Winds Blowing"

      Lyrics for The Stranglers - "North Winds Blowing"

      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
