We boarded up the windows
And we sealed the door shut
And we let the special chicken 
Build a nest right by the window
Your face was glowing
The heat was strong
We ate cold black eggs all day long
In the winter when the wind kicked up

I saw your body moving
Through the incandescent light
You were dancing by yourself there
Your sweater hugged your shoulders and it was alright
We plucked sugar crystals from the cold English air
I had a present for you hidden somewhere
In the winter when the wind kicked up
