Random Lyric Time

Playing with a couple ideas for duchess_webb's new website, and listening to LaTour (one of those bands that I love, but no one else seems to have really heard of)...so you get lyrics, so there, nyah!

LaTour - Cold

...It's cold in here....

(spoken)It may be an attractive face...it may be an exotic place...but I don't want anything if it's cold...
Just when you think you've found someone, a friend or lover, they become part of a world that is turning cold...

False honesty and pure mistrust
are feelings that dwell in every single one of us,
Some can refrain, but others are bold,
The ones that lash out are the ones that are cold,

Hurt and sorrow are what they've inflicted,
Devious and mean is how they're depicted,
When selfishness and greed are the order of the day,
Shield yourself and get out of the way when it's COLD...

It may be an attractive face,
it may be an exotic place, (COLD)
But I don't want anything if it's cold
(COLD)
Just when you think you've found someone,
A friend or lover, they become (COLD)
Part of a world that is turning cold...

...It's cold in here....

People who waive feelings of everybody else
And live in excess, solely for the self,
With no consideration for another one's joy...
Self-importance is all that's employed

It's hard to understand how one becomes like that,
At one time, perhaps, their goodness was intact,
They may have been affected at a point in their existence
When it started getting cold and they lacked the resistance

(COLD)
The feeling almost everywhere,
Possessions are their only care, (COLD)
To have and to want too much is too cold
(COLD)
When it's time to take control,
Turn away and, just like old, (COLD)
The final true exuberance in the cold...

You're not even blind when you're led to believe,
When the truth is known, you're set up to receive
A blow you thought could never be so low
From a trusted friend that went into the cold

Protect yourself from the sorrow and pain,
Cover your head when it starts to rain,
Leave plenty of time to estimate and react,
Prepare to recoil, prepare to retract when it's COLD...

It may be an attractive face,
it may be an exotic place, (COLD)
But I don't want anything if it's cold
(COLD)
Just when you think you've found someone,
A friend or lover, they become (COLD)
Part of a world that is turning cold...

(COLD)
The feeling almost everywhere,
Possessions are their only care, (COLD)
To have and to want too much is too cold
(COLD)
When it's time to take control,
Turn away and, just like old, (COLD)
The final true exuberance in the cold...

(COLD)
