Kitty Wells — 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 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.

--- Instrumental ---

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...
