Another love story gone wrong

A chapter in the book Reflections Of Color

A Heart As Cold As Stone

by Brett Matthew West

A Heart As Cold As Stone

There's a bag that I've been packing full of all my memories
I gave my heart and soul to you but you wanted to be free
It's not that I don't love you, God knows how much I do
but, I can't stand no more of what you put me through

You are the one I needed to get me through another day
but, candlelight and roses just got in your way
So, tonight I'm gonna leave you and I'll try not to cry
Losing you and your sweet love ain't how I wanna say goodbye

Saw a story in the paper and the news it wasn't good
They say you found somebody who can love you like they should
I guess that means you won't be coming back again
One more time let's show the world the fool I've always been

Now I lay me down to sleep and I have sweet dreams of you
This is still the hardest thing I'll ever have to do
No matter how the wind blows I never get it right
There's a full moon that is shining on our sea of love tonight

You can't burn both ends of a candle any more than you can stop the rain
When you give your heart away you better watch out for the pain
So many times it happens we let love pass us by
Those brand new wings you're wearing won't help you to fly

High above the heartaches you left here behind
The day that you walked out on me is the day I lost my mind
I know that she is waiting with a heart as cold as stone
but, some day soon you'll wake up and find your new love gone

Well, don't come crying to me when she tears your world in two
Remember that you told me there ain't a thing I do for you
