Walking down the street on a cold night with you
My hands were cold and I thought yours must be too.
So I took your hand and held it tightly
But I realised almost immediately.
It was not your hands that were cold
It was your heart that was like ice, which I knew I could never hold.
Cold, cold night
As cold as ice
As cold as his heart
As cold as my soul
As cold as the glare in our eyes
How and why did we come to this?
We’ve become frozen
We’ve become our coldest
She looks all sweet and kind
And though she may not read minds
She can tell the wrong sort
Even before they start to court.
They wonder why she’s single
Wonder why she wouldn’t mingle
They think of her as a mystery
And ask themselves if she’s in misery.
She’s calm unless provoked
She’s tough as nails when your feelings for her she’ll revoke
She won’t think twice to tell you otherwise
Boy, she will be your demise.
You can wait for as long as you want
Hoping you’ll change her mind, but you know you can’t
When she says “no”, that’s the final word
See, she battles dragons herself and doesn’t need you sword.
Got a chocolate chip cookie ice cream
then ate a strawberry with a vanilla syrup
I may top off with some sprinkles….
gets me through the day, everytime
Cold as ice on a winter day
I lay still, wide awake
The moon has yet to lift me high
From this forsaken place
He led me on and led me out
Fool was I thinking ’twas real
But everything was just for show
A shallow grave I’ve dug for myself
To fall for the lies
Weak was I to hold on to a hope
When there was really none
So on he goes as if nothing has happened
While I am frozen in time
contemplating the heartache
I tried the strawberry full of berries
before going for the rockies of the rocky road
There were cookies in a cream and the pistachio
The coffee crumbled while the mango floated
then I tried the Double Dutch.
Went loco for the choco before diving in
for the banana
Hazel went a little bit nut
and I ate the rainbow
Sprinkled some marshmallow and I’m almost done.
I saved the best for last,
so I slobbered all over vanilla
Adrift in this cold ocean life
I watch you with intensity
You move were the waves take you
and I, an onlooker can only wonder
You would not let me or anyone know
A tip of the iceberg is all that is shown
Your fears you hide, along with happiness
not trusting anyone
You continue to move along, still hiding
and I, still hoping to know more of you
The sun is piercing hot in this tropical weather
Summer is creeping around the corner
Cold drinks abound
Chill under the coconut tree
with Halo-Halo in hand
The heat of the sun is melting the ice cream
while the kids lick as fast as they can
Some dreaded the rain when it was abundant
Now, they ask for it to come
Since the land is dry
and people flock to the malls and the beach
There they stay until the sun bleeds snow
or at least until it melts into the horizon
