It Was Cold (The Ruts)

It was cold in the night (It was cold, it was night) I was with you some time ago But you were laughing to hide your crying (You were laughing and you were crying) In shock and dazed, we walked away (The night was black, it was raining) You said "be careful", some lights were shining They came much closer, we started hiding Then it was silent, I heard you breathing But far away, someone was screaming Some dogs were growling, we started running We kept on running until the daylight And it was cold, the smoke was heavy (And it was cold, it was night) Casualties high, no one was ready (I was with you some time ago) It was cold in the night I was with you some time ago You said now no in desperation (You said "be careful", some lights were shining) The world we know in desolation (They came much closer, we started hiding)
