Cold as Ice" is an Amy Ray song from the 1986 EP. The last time I
heard it performed was in the early summer of 1991. The lyrics are
>from the EP lyric sheet.
Cold as Ice
I don't think you understand
The rhythm of my heart
There's a strong line to mind and soul
And I feel it tearing apart.
I've been searching for new words
To tell you in a different way...
When I told you I'd hang on forever,
I threw my choice away...
It's cold as ice, I can't let go
It's cold as ice, but I need your love.
And I wish I could have been the first one
Oh, to walk out the door,
But the more I find myself to blame,
The less there is to come back for.
You wish you could have been the last one
To tell me how you really feel.
When you closed the door, oh, deep inside my heart
It still seemed so sincere.
If there's a message to this madness
Well it still seems quite unclear...
If I really need to save myself,
Why can't I just walk out of here???
There's a message in your eyes
And you make it perfectly plain,
Either I leave your heart behind
Or crack beneath this freezing rain.
