When I First Froze

May 2, 2016

I remember when I first froze 
I was buried in those winter snows 
I couldn't move or turn about 
My love was gone and I was crying out 
That oh what I couldn't do 
Was hold on love to you 
Though I wanted to 
So I held on in the cold 
With my shadow growing tall 
For I wanted you always 
And I wanted you to stay 

Why does my sun go down? 
I feel you now 
Though I couldn't then 

The sun it took its time with me 
And though it thawed me out and set me free 
With what I stood to lose or stood to gain 
I knew full well that I'd freeze again 
Oh what I couldn't do 
Was hold on to you 
Though I wanted to 
So I held on in the cold 
While the world about me froze 
For I wanted you always 
And I wanted you to stay
