Cold Case Love

  • On my roof
    Dark and I'm burning a rose
    I don't need proof
    I'm torn apart and you know
    What you did to me was a crime
    Cold case love
    And I let you reach me one more time
    But that's enough uh

    Your love was breaking the law, but I needed a witness (oh oh)
    So pick me up when it's over, it don't make any difference (oh oh)
    Will it ever be solved?
    Or am I taking the fall?
    Truth was there all along, tell me how did we miss it

    We opened up a cold case love
    And it got the best of us
    And now prints, pictures and white outlines
    Are all that's left at the scene of a crime of a cold case love (oh oh)

    Should've investigated
    But love blinded eyes couldn't see, no
    And then I tried to cage it
    But your love ain't the kind that you can keep
    Release me now 'cause I did my time
    Of this cold case love
    My heart's no longer cold and confined
    I've had enough oh oh

    Your love was breaking the law, but I needed a witness (oh oh)
    So pick me up when it's over, it don't make any difference (oh oh)
    Will it ever be solved?
    Or am I taking the fall? (Ooh no)
    Truth was there all along, tell me how did we miss it
    We opened up a cold case love
    And it got the best of us
    And now prints, pictures and white outlines
    Are all that's left at the scene of a crime
    Of a cold case love oh oh

    We lost our way
    Took this too far
    Now I'll never find the pieces of my heart
    We've lost enough
    Looking for a truth
    That was here all along

    Cold case love
    And it got the best of us
    And now prints, pictures and white outlines
    Are all that's left at the scene of a crime
    Of a cold case love

    We opened up a cold case love
    And it got the best of us
    And now prints, pictures and white outlines
    Are all that's left at the scene of a crime
    Of a cold case love, love Writer/s: JAMES FAUNTLEROY, ROBIN TADROSS, JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE
