"Cold Day In July" as written by and Richard C Leigh....
The moon is full but my arms are empty
All night long how I've pleaded and cried
You always said the day that you would leave me
Would be a cold day in July

Your bags are packed and not a word is spoken
Guess we said everything with goodbye
Time moves so slow when promises get broken
On this cold day in July

Sun's comin' up, comin' up down on Main Street
Children shout as they're running out to play
Head in my hands here I am standing in my bare feet
Watching you drive away
Watching you drive away

You said that we were gonna last forever
You said our love would never die
Looks like spring and feels like sunny weather
But it's a cold day in July

Oh, sun's comin' up, comin' up down on Main Street
Children shout as they're running out to play
Oh oh, head in my hands here I am standing in my bare feet
Watching you drive away
Watching you drive away

The moon is full but my arms are empty
All night long how I've pleaded and cried
You always said the day that you would leave me
Would be a cold day in July
Here comes that cold day in July

    General CommentI think this song is about a marriage or relationship coming to an end. I believe when talking about a "cold day in July", it is like saying "when pigs fly". The person promised to love them forever and now their leaving them. Now she watches him walk out the door and she is sad while the rest of the world goes on unaffected, yet her world is broken.

    General Commentto me this song can be taken as meaning as losing a loved one through death. The way natalie sang it I thought of how they thought they would always be together but then death took her man away. Life is moving on as she is trying to deal with it.
