The Cold

from by Broken Arm



Winter's coming, see it in your eyes,
and I can't help from showing you my lack of surprise.
A stare so cold it froze my smile, clear to me you care.
All my time is mine to spend but I must never spend it there.
And later in the evening, our blanket made of snow,
we lay so close together, our chill we dared not show.

Oh I can't bear the cold anymore.

And so I lit a single candle and tried to warm my hand,
holding it so close to me, as close as I could stand.
I tried to tell us both we could see this winter through,
but just like me you could only see that we had better end it soon.
Cause I had never said goodbye to the girl who'd made me warm,
no longer could I fool you, saying we were torn.
