When I First Froze


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
