Cold As Ice

Charted: 24 6
  • You're as cold as ice
    You're willing to sacrifice our love
    You never take advice
    Someday you'll pay the price, I know

    I've seen it before
    It happens all the time
    Closing the door
    You leave the world behind

    You're digging for gold
    Yet throwing away
    A fortune in feelings
    But someday you'll pay

    You're as cold as ice
    You're willing to sacrifice our love
    You want paradise
    But someday you'll pay the price, I know

    I've seen it before
    It happens all the time
    Closing the door
    You leave the world behind

    You're digging for gold
    Yet throwing away
    A fortune in feelings
    But someday you'll pay

    (Cold as ice)
    You know that you are
    (Cold as ice)
    As cold as ice to me
    (Cold as ice)

    (Ooh, ooh, ooh, you're as cold as ice)
    (You're as cold as ice)
    You're as cold as ice
    Cold as ice I know
    Yes, I know
    You're as cold as ice
    Cold as ice I know
    Oh, yes I know
    You're as cold as ice
    Cold as ice I know
    Oh, yes I know Writer/s: LOU GRAMM, MICK JONES
