Emerson, Lake & Palmer — Heart On Ice lyrics

Just take my heart put it on ice
'cause I don't think I could stand another blow
Just one more tumble of the dice
Though it's slipping through my hands
I can't let go

And when the hard rain falls
Whatever you may say
There's no hiding in this jungle
You just can't run away

And I'm sorry when I fell from grace
Unable to conceal
Only passion is a fool to chase
The loneliness I fell

Just take my heart into the night
It no longer needs to see the light of day
Heaven knows I cannot fight
As the edges of my soul get chipped away

Walking down this street
The gutter runs with tears
I would sell my heart
To cross the bridge of compromise

But you cannot walk on broken glass
'cause every step you take
Is just one cut deeper than the last
Just one more heart you break

Just take my heart put it on ice
Your love is a fire, a burning hurricane
We can never cross the river of good-byes
While desire hides in the darkness
Searching for the flame

There were so many days
And still I wonder why
I will never mend these broken wings
No matter how I try
I thought we had it all, but now it seems
We just flickered like a candle
In the cathedral of our dreams

Just take my heart put it on ice
Your love is a fire, a burning hurricane
We can never cross the river of good- byes
While desire hides in the darkness
Searching for the flame

Just take my heart put it on ice
Your love is a fire, a burning hurricane
We can never cross the river of good-byes
While desire hides in the darkness
Searching for the flame
