  1. Cold Hard Truth

From the recording Line, Rope, Etc.

Lyrics

You could write a book with words we've wasted
You could walk a mile in circles we've gone round
It’s hard to let it go once you've tasted
A love as sweet as what we once had found
You've had one foot out the door for a while now
So your freedom's just another step to take
I ain't asking you to love me
I ain't trying to make things right
I just want to hold you for one more night

Chorus
So baby stay
And come what may
One more time let's melt that cold hard truth away

Five long years and nothing left but sorrow
You say that you don't want to lose one minute more
Let it slide tonight and leave tomorrow
This boat has sunk
So let's just drift to shore

Chorus

The sun was high
We found no shade
So one more time let's melt that cold hard truth away
One more time let's melt that cold hard truth away
One last time let's melt that cold hard truth away
