about

This is a very old song- never really fleshed it out because it is, admittedly, pretty low. That and I wish I could lively up the power chords, sounds a little dated and one dimensional. But I wanted to play around with the Maudlin/ Phaedra vocal layering, so I resurrected it. So here's Maudlin, the lead vocal, feeling all empowered in feeling sorry for herself, and Phaedra, the background vocal, mocking her and grinning maniacally, wailing like a wild but caged animal. Definitely some mad at the world/ disappointed in my fellow human beings vibes here. Trying to put on a pretty face when seething with contempt on the inside. But I suppose we've all been there. I like how this came out.

lyrics

Cold Heart

I stare at these walls every day
Go out and smile through clenched teeth every night
Someone's running as I speak and I'm wishing it was me
And the waves are at my feet but it's too cold to go in deep
But I'll try again to keep the faith
But this town has brought me to my knees
I'm afraid my cold heart is gonna freeze

I try, I really do, to get along
I pretend it's all right when it's all wrong
Cause someone's dream is coming true and I want mine to
I am humble most of the time, but I want more, gimme mine
I'll try again to keep the faith
But this town has brought me to my knees
I'm afraid my cold heart is gonna freeze

Well a dog has more to say than half the people I see today
Cause he's never told a lie and there is nothing he has to hide
But I'll try again to keep the faith
But this town has brought me to my knees
I'm afraid my cold heart is gonna freeze
