It was the night
Cold English night
It was the day
Warm English day
It was the moon shining down on the water so white
It was the moon shining down on the water

It was the house
Old English house
Blind as the night
She's dressed in white
She was so warm, good Lord, how I miss her right now
Just like the moon shining down on the water

Shine, shine unearthly light

It was the night
Cold English night
It was the air
Azure and rare
It was a girl with her face in the shadows so dark
Just like the moon shining down on the water
Just like the moon shining down on the water

Cold English Air                                    17a
I can't explain, don't ask, it's stronger than me   18a
