It was so cold in my hands

But I could not let it go

It was so heavy

But I could not drop it

Is this it?

The heart you promised me

Why do I hate it so

But can not let you go?

Oh no

I suppose I'm in trouble now

But hey, I always had someone to turn to

But I guess that doesn't include you

It was so cold in my hands

But I could not let it go

It was so heavy

But I could not drop it

What is this that you've given me?

Not even one sweet memory

I lay on your shoulder

But not feel a thing

I don't even care

What you're thinking

So why can't I let you go?

It was so cold in my hands

But I could not let it go

It was so heavy

But I could not drop it

Honey, I'm not so sure this was wise

Your words, they don't intice

I kiss you in the hallway

And can only think that the taste is bad

I held your hand over and over

But all it did was make my palms sweat

You said that you loved me

But I could only wonder what that meant

And say 'That's nice'
