Willie Nelson - Cold, Cold Heart Lyrics




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 debtful 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 the teardrops start
Why can't I free your debtful mind and melt your cold cold heart

[guitar - piano - steel]

You'll never know how much it hurts to see you sit and cry
You know you need and want my love yet you're afraid to try
Why do you run and hide from life to try it just ain't smart
Why can't I free your debtful mind and melt your cold cold heart
There was a time when I believed that you belonged to me
But now I know 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 debtful mind and melt your 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 memory 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 the teardrops start
    Why can't I free your doubtful mind, and melt your cold cold heart
    You'll never know how much it hurts to see you sit and cry
    You know you need and want my love yet you're afraid to try
    Why do you run and hide from life, to try it just ain't smart
    Why can't I free your doubtful mind and melt your cold cold heart
    There was a time when I believed that you belonged to me
    But now I know 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
