Cold, Cold Heart

Album: Cold, Cold Heart (1952)
  • I tried so hard my dear to show that you're my every dream.
    Yet you're afraid each thing I do is just some evil scheme
    A memory from your lonesome past keeps us so far apart
    Why can't I free your doubtful mind and melt your cold cold heart

    Another love before my time made your heart sad and blue
    And so my heart is paying now for things I didn't do
    In anger unkind words are said that make the teardrops start
    Why can't I free your doubtful mind,and melt your cold cold heart

    You'll never know how much it hurts to see you sit and cry
    You know you need and want my love yet you're afraid to try
    Why do you run and hide from life,to try it just ain't smart
    Why can't I free your doubtful mind and melt your cold cold heart

    There was a time when I believed that you belonged to me
    But now I know your heart is shackled to a memory
    The more I learn to care for you,the more we drift apart
    Why can't I free your doubtful mind and melt your cold cold heart Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
