Icy Blue Heart
written by John Hiatt
She came onto him like a slow movin' cold front
His beer was warmer than the look in her eyes
She sat on a stool, he said, "What do you want?"
She said, "Give me a love that don't freeze up inside."
He said, "I have melted some hearts in my time dear
But to sit next to you, Lord, I shiver and shake
And if I knew love, well, I don't think I'd be here
Askin' myself if I've got what it takes."
To melt your icy blue heart
Should I start?
To turn what's been frozen for years
Into a river of tears
"These days we all play cool, calm and collected
Why, our lips could turn blue just shooting the breeze"
But under the frost, well, he thought he detected
A warm blush of red and a touch of her knee
He said, "Girl, you're a beauty like I've never witnessed
And I've seen the Northern Lights dance in the air
But I've felt the cold that can follow the first kiss
And there's not enough heat in the fires burning there."
