LyricsEdit

The wind from the north
Fattens the yellow corn
You come into the house
With your dress torn
I can see you now
As through a screen
A smile on your face
Your fingers dripping kerosene

Your hair hangs down
Over me
Your hair casts a shadow
To cover me
I can see you now
As through a screen
The smile on your face
Your fingers dripping kerosene

And the wind from the north
Cools me
The wind from the north
Doesn't fool me
I can see you now
As through a screen
A smile on your face
Your fingers dripping kerosene
