"Cold (But I'm Still Here)" as written by Lloyd Fitzgerald Brown and Delroy Mcclean....
Hello, I'm your martyr, will you be my gangster
Can you feel my trigger hand, moving further down your back
When you hide, hide inside that body
But just remember that when I touch you
The more you shake, the more you give away

Cold, but I'm still here, blind, ‘cause I'm so blind, say never
We're far from comfortable this time
Cold, now we're so cold, mine, and you're not mine, say never
We're far from obvious this time

Wait, another minute here, time will kill us after all
Now can you feel its second hand wrapped around your neck
So fall into my eyes and fall into my lies
But don't you forget
The more you turn away, the more I want you to stay

Cold, but I'm still here, blind, ‘cause I'm so blind, say never
We're far from comfortable this time
Cold, now we're so cold, mine, and you're not mine, say never
We're far from obvious this time

You're so endearing, you're so beautiful,
Well I don't look like they do, and I don't love like they do
But I don't hate like they do
Am I ever on your mind?

Cold, but I'm still here, blind, ‘cause I'm so blind, say never
We're far from comfortable this time
Cold, now we're so cold, mine, and you're not mine, say never
We're far from obvious this time

Cold, you broke me from the very first night
I'd love you ‘til the day that I die
I'm far too comfortable this time
Cold, I loved you from the very first night
You broke me ‘til the day that I die
I'm far too obvious this time

    General Commentthis song is awesome. it's one of those songs that you can listen to over & over again and the chorus never gets annoying. i agree with Desaperecida, his voice is really really sexyy.

    General Commenti agree with what you guys are saying about this song. but i also think that it could be about a stalker singing to whom he is stalking.

    "when you hide, hide inside that body
    but just remember that when I touch you
    the more you shake, the more you give away "
    "but don’t you forget
    the more you turn away, the more I want you to stay"

    it works...

    General CommentThis song has been on my playlist for ages but i only really listened to it today for the first time. I've been playing it for the past hour on repeat.

    this do perfectly describes how i feel. I fell for the wrong guy (of course).... and even when he's being cold, I'm still here

    He reads me so easily and even though I pretend and try to hide my feelings, when I'm around him or we touch, I cant hide it.... when you hide, hide inside that body
    but just remember that when I touch you
    the more you shake, the more you give away......

    General CommentThis song is so powerful (especially with vocals) and full of meaning. It's amazing what poetry can do. Anyone who has lost the one they love -- potentially to another -- and would do anything to be with that person again can relate to this. Love it!

    General CommentThe official meaning of this song from their mySpace:

    Why are you so cold? Why am I still here? It's because I am blind to the fact that you're not mine and that time will kill us after all. You go to leave and I say wait, I say hold on. There is no point though. The second hand of time has come by and sliced it's way through us, it's wrapped itself around our necks and will keep choking until we give up. I was too comfortable when we started and I'm too obvious now. I will be your martyr, I will be your sacrifice. There's one in everyone's life. The one who you need to use to figure yourself out, it's not on purpose but it exists nonetheless.

    You've changed, you wont be my little gangster anymore. I always thought that was an endearing name for you, I always thought you were beautiful. You say things are different now and you dont feel that way for me or my consortium. Well maybe you should remember something, the more that you shake when I touch you, the more you give away. The look in your eyes tells me everything I need to know. Your look will fall into my eyes. You should probably reflect on that a bit, you should probably look a little deeper. I have a new name for you, it's social hypochondriac. I would explain but I dont care to at this point, besides you should know your own flaws more than anyone.

    You have your new league of desire now don't you. And I dont look like they do, I dont love like they do, I dont hurt like they do, I dont fuck like they do, I dont hate like they do, I dont act like they do, I dont believe like they do, I dont sin like they do, I dont feel safe like they do. So this is where you have to go, is it? I can't follow, I can't walk through the enemy's lines, the first wave is always filled with the least important soldiers anyway. They are cut down from the front, their trigger hands are always anticipating the next move. If you sit still it will flow down your back and you'll feel it in a whole new way. You'll shake in a whole new way. They will curse you in hades and praise you in heaven. You will fall into the lies, you will sit there on your knees and be broken until the day that you die. I will love you until then.
