A new recording of an old favorite. A soulful tale of betrayal and heartbreak.


You'll go cold on him,
Wait and see—
Just as you always
Go cold on me.
You'll tell him
Your reasons, and you'll say goodbye,
But your face won't show any pain.

You'll go cold on him
Before long.
You'll find someone else,
Right or wrong.
It figures
No fire can keep you warm all night
Without somethin' to feed the burning flame.

Once your kiss was soft and bright,
It lasted until the morning light,
It glowed and shimmered like a summer moon.
Now you smile with someone new
And sparkle like you used to do,
But I can tell you'll start to change your tune.
He doesn't see the evidence, but soon...

You'll go cold on him,
Cold as ice.
It won't matter
How hard he tries.
It's simple--
You haven't got a chance at love,
And you're fated to play this foolish game:
You went cold on me, now you'll go cold on him.
