  • Every night I have the same old dream
    'Bout you and me and what's in between
    So many changes, so many lies
    Try to run, try to hide

    From everything that I feel inside
    But I can't escape you or your frozen eyes
    Searching in the darkness
    Fading out of sight

    Love was here and gone like a thief in the night
    Stone Cold
    And I thought I knew you so well
    Stone Cold

    Can't break away from your spell
    Another dark and empty night
    If I was wrong I want to make it right
    But you are so distant, so far away

    Your words like ice fall on the ground
    Breaking the silence without a sound
    Oh familiar strangers with nothing to say
    Searching in the darkness

    Fading out of sight
    Love was here and gone like a thief in the night
    Stone Cold
    And I thought I knew you so well

    Stone Cold
    Can't break away from your spell
    You leave me Stone Cold
    Searching in the darkness

    Fading out of sight
    Love was here and gone like a thief in the night
    Stone Cold
    And I thought I knew you so well

    Stone Cold
    Can't break away from your spell
    You're Stone Coldyeah
    I can't break away from your spell

    Stone Cold baby
    I thought I knew you so well
    You're stone coldice cold
    Can't break away from your spell

    (You put me in the deep freeze)
    (Oh baby don't you leave me)
    (Stone cold, your leavin' me cold)
    Stone Cold, I thought I knew you so well

    Stone Cold, xan't break away from your spell Writer/s: Joe Lynn Turner, Ritchie Blackmore, Roger David Glover

  • Don from Sevierville, TnI think this resembles the Foreigner song, Waiting for a Girl Like You (which Joe Lynn Turner would later cover on a solo album). I heard that Ronnie James Dio called the Joe Lynn Turner era Rainbow Foreigner Jr.
  • Rusputtin from Atlanta, GaMy introduction to Rainbow was thru Stone Cold...killer track!
  • Jim from Long Beach, CaThis song is about a cold bitch.
  • Tye from Guthrie, OkAbout a girl who just has no feelings toward you/doesn't care. Empty... no love for you in her heart i dunno..
  • Damar from Pittsburgh, PaThe song's video was directed by Edd Griles who would later did some classic videos from Huey Lewis and Cyndi Lauper.
