COLD SHOULDER

I used to be your spark
Now I’m just your crying shoulder
We

became one after dark
as the summer nights grew colder
You walked on me then you walked away
I was sick of being a welcome mat
Your stepping stone became a boulder
I was not your ticket, I was

the wrong game to play

Sweet nothings were nothing but lies
Bluffing a disguise
A beautiful mask with crocodile tears in your eyes
My heart

sank at first when I saw the cries
You said that you still care
But find every excuse not to be there
You wanted me to hold onto nothing
and

believe this charade was fair

Lean on me with your crocodile tears
They will turn to ice
I was sedated with your first impression
So I did

not think twice
You were the mistake chosen
causing me to revisit rock bottom
Now my shoulder has frozen
Stuck in a deep freeze like the last

month of autumn
When you forced your goodbye
Upon me, head spinning faster everyday I stood by
Everyday I grow colder and colder
Temperatures

at a record low
You unleashed the demons skating on my cold shoulder
Everyday I grow colder and colder
Temperatures at a record low
Your frozen

tears still remain frosted on my cold shoulder
