You were so smart then in your jacket and coat
My softest red scarf was warming your throat
Winter was on us at the end of my nose
And I never love England more than when covered in snow

But a friend of mine says it's good to hear you believe in love
Even if said in fear
Well I'll hold you there brother and set you straight
I only believe true love is frail and willing to break

I will come back here, bring me back when I'm old
I want to lay here forever in the cold
I might be cold but I'm just skin and bones
And I never love England more than when covered in snow

I wrote my name in your book, only God knows why
And I bet you that he cracked a smile
And I'm clearing all the crap out of my room
Trying desperately to figure out what it is that makes me blue
And I wrote big letter to you
And it's twenty-two pages front and back
But it's too good to be used
And I try to be a girl who likes to be used
I'm too good for that, there's a mind under this hat
And I called them all and told them I've got to move.

I'm on my own, it's too hard
I'm on my own, it's too hard
Feel like running, feel like running
Run it off

And we will keep you, we will keep you
Little one, safe from harm
Like an extra arm you are part of us

You were so smart then in your jacket and coat
My softest red scarf was warming your throat
Winter will leave us, left the end of my nose
Goodbye old England until next years' snow
