"Cold Cold Water" as written by and Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn....
I saddled up my pony right
And rode into the ghostly night
It was wide, wide open, wide, wide open

I left the only home I knew
I stayed alive and I found you
Now I take you where the water's deep
And make the air you breathe so sweet

But is it not enough to be complete? Please?
Let me give you everything you need, please?

We found a way, we found a street
Directions sweat under the sheets
And I let you have it, let you have it

But it can be a lonely place
Desire comes, desire fades
There's a bright one caught your fancy eye
It's okay so long as you stay mine

And I'm so number one that it's a shame, a shame
That you let other numbers in the game

Now I suffer for your hungry eye
Oh why must it see more than mine?
It's a light you're after, 'cause light moves faster

But when I ride again into the night
My torch will shoot flames strong and bright
And my absence will remind you of
How tough it is to be in love

And it's not what I think it's what you say, hey
And it works great for you to have your way, hey

But if the west can be a desperate place
You search all day for just a taste
Of the cold, cold water, cold, cold water

And if you think I've gone too long
Listen the sky will sing this song
As it burns up all the memories
That flow like water out of me

    General CommentThis is the best song in her catalog. The scream in the background after "It works great for you to have your way" ... wow, it gives me chills every time! So much emotion packed in there. This is grand.

    General Commenti think "But each of us can be a desperate place" is "But the west can be a desperate place." im not positive..but it makes more sense too. who knows.
