Track 8: So Cold feat. Christoph Bull and Paul Nowell

So Cold

When your heart gets broken, the best thing you can do is let yourself feel sad.  Wallow in it for a little bit if you must, as long as you have an end game.  The idea is to work through the sorrow, not live there permanently.  This song came from my experience with that.  I knew Christoph Bull and Paul Nowell's soulful playing would bring depth and power to the song and I think they certainly did. 

Put my book of poems back on the shelf

return my finest wine back to the cellar

don't need a candle to light up this empty room

I'll just sit in the darkness

Like I'm embalmed in a toom

 

Chorus

You ruined the moonlight

drove the passion out of the night

stole the magic from my sight

and left me cold

left me so cold

left me so cold

left me so cold

 

You said true love is like wine

and it has to wait

We must never rush

the hand of fate

and you knew that I loved you

and hung on your every word

and I waited

yes, I waited

Oh, I waited

so long

until the fire flickered

and died

until the tear trickled

and dried

 

You ruined the moonlight

so cold

and left me cold

left me so cold

so cold

 

And I know there's an ending to this storm

just as soon as I choose to get warm

but for now I feel cold

I feel so cold

I feel so cold

I feel so cold

 

You can't really ruin the moonlight

or drive the passion out of the night

or steal the magic from my sight

or leave me cold

leave me so cold

leave me so cold

leave me so cold

 

Until the fire flickered and died

until the tear trickled and dried

cold, cold, cold
