Cold Where My Love Used to Be 

  

Summer skyline turning purple in the haze – 

Wonder why my blues are just like yesterday's. 

City is warm, 

But it's cold where my love used to be. 

  

Dinner table never seemed so big before – 

Won't be able to touch knees there anymore. 

Coffee cup's warm, 

But it's cold where my love used to be. 

  

Will I stay in? 

Will I go out tonight? 

Make some calls and see who's free – 

Why can't I be alone with me? 

  

Bedroom curtains turning gold against the sun – 

Now I'm certain what was in my arms is gone. 

Pillow is warm, 

But it's cold where my love used to be. 

  

Will I keep running 

Away from my blues? 

See a movie, watch T.V. 

Why can't I have a laugh on me? 

  

Open window looking down on ev'ry day – 

Have I been so closed that all I see is grey? 

My heart is warm 

But it's cold where my love used to be.
