Cold Shivers

(Ralph Covert -Waterdog Music / ASCAP)

I was thinking about how close we came
Before it slipped away lika coin down the drain
Like a face in the window after you said good-bye

I was looking through an old magazine
When I saw your picture, thought of how much you changed
Like a map of the city rebuilt after the war

And I really don't know how it happened so fast
How we all grew so old, how we felt out of touch
But I still feel cold, cold shivers
'Cause I wanted it so much

And I was thinking how it swept us away
And we were helpless once our choice had been made
Like a bullet in a barrel of a gun that had been fired

And I was searching for the truth I denied
Trying to remember just which times I lied
Lies I repeated so often they seemed true

And I really don't know how it happened so fast
How we all grew so old, how we fell out of touch
But I still feel cold, cold shivers
'Cause I wanted it so much

And I've been looking for the reasons
Why we grew to be so cold
And I've been hoping that the bridges we burned
Were all behind us after all

And I was whistling an old melody
One we used to sing, and it felt incomplete
Like a book you never finished and never put away

And I really don't know how it happened so fast
How we grew so old, how we fell out of touch
But I still feel cold, cold shivers
'Cause I wanted it so much
Cold, cold shivers 'cause I wanted it so much
