Goodbye England (Covered In Snow) Lyrics

Goodbye England (Covered In Snow) - Laura Marling

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

But I never love England more than when covered in snow

 

And a friend of mine says it's good to hear you

Believe in love even if set in fear

Well I'll hold you there brother and set you straight

 

I wont make believe that 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 stuff out of my room

Trying desperately to figure out what it is that makes me blue

And I wrote an epic letter to you

 

But it's 22 pages front and back and it's too good to be used

And I tried 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

 

Feel like running

Feel like running

 

Running 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

 

And my softest red scarf was warming your throat

 

Winter will leave us

 

Left the end of my nose

 

So goodbye old England 'till next years snow
