EDDY ARNOLD lyrics - Cold, Cold Heart

EDDY ARNOLD
"Cold, Cold Heart"

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 mem'ry 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 those teardrops start
Why can't I free your doubtful mind
And melt your cold, cold heart.

[Instrumental]

There was a time when I believed
That you belonged to me
But now I see 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...
