COLD

I’ll tell you the truth. I’ve been out of control
They took away my blanket. Put me out in the cold.
Even Miami’s got ice on the ground
Man said, “You be a good boy and get out of my town.”

I’d just got to sleep when they turned on the lights.
When things go wrong a man can lose all his rights
I’ll admit it now. I was stealing some things
But it’s not a bad movie. It’s just a bad scene

And we’ll dream a dream of big ice cream
Ice skates and skating rinks
We’ll find out if freezing is warm
and if the struggles of this life are
worth weathering the storm

They say you feel warm when you’re freezing to death
Say what they will, they’re just wasting their breath
If you don’t have the courage to take your own life
Just curl up beside me in the door way tonight

And we’ll dream a dream of big ice cream
Ice skates and breath like steam
We’ll find out if freezing is warm
and if the struggles of this life are
worth weathering the storm

Katy Tom Noyes The line....you feel warm when you're freezing to death.... I was so afraid this was going to happen to my Dad the first night. He thought he could tuff it out. Ended up in his car for warmth. He finally realized the severity and went to my brother's. He didn't want to leave his house

Very compelling, and I think the unusual/quirky arrangement complements the story. Tim Tandy
