"Ice" as written by Thomas Salter and Valerie Poxleitner....
My mouth is frozen so I can't even speak
What a disappointment, I had it perfectly
What I was going to bring up suddenly
Stood like a stone as you stood quietly
You're making it hard for me
All I can do is freeze

What I mean is, all I need is,
Just a little emotion
'Cause all I see is you not feeling
And you're giving me nothing nice
I tried to do you right, why'd you have to go and turn to ice
(Ice)

I don't think you're knowing how hard this is for me
I'm not the type to say sorry constantly
So I swallowed my pride and I got on my knee
But still you just stood there as you stared at me
Your ego is getting old
How did you get so cold

What I mean is, all I need is,
Just a little emotion
'Cause all I see is you not feeling
And you're giving me nothing nice
I tried to do you right, why'd you have to go and turn to ice
(Ice)

I'm looking at you looking at me, what can I do but say sorry
It's a little late but you know I just want you to be happy.
What I got to say to make you let me get away with it this time.
I know you're upset and that you're happy just to sit and hate me,
But I'll make a bet that you'll be better to forget about me,
Even better yet I'll let a little light melt the ice, ice baby!

My mouth is frozen so I can't even speak
I'm not the type to say sorry constantly

What I mean is, all I need is,
Just a little emotion
'Cause all I see is you not feeling
And you're giving me nothing
What I mean is, all I need is,
Just a little emotion
'Cause all I see is you not feeling
And you're giving me nothing nice
I tried to do you right, why'd you have to go
I tried to do you right, why'd you have to go and turn to ice

    General CommentI feel the song is being sung to herself. She's become a cold, hard shell of herself and she's struggling internally to get back that light and emotion that she once had. Perhaps she's become complacent, jaded, who knows.

    Maybe I feel this is the meaning only because I often have these kinda conversations with myself.

    General Commentvery nice song :>

    i think shes singing about a guy.
    how shes done something bad to him
    but shes not quite fond of saying sorry
    and hes still full of himself and he has so much pride
    and he cant forgive her, so shes saying that hes a cold person.

    nice beat, love this song (:<33

    General Commentwhat this boils down to, to me, is that those 3 small words that mean everything. the way it looks is that she wants a little more from her guy friend, not physically but emotionally. she wants him to open up to her, (all i need is, just a little emotion) since shes not getting that, and its obviously desired. and hes solid and cold like a block of ice, not warming up to her, so she gets pissed. and shes angry making apologizing to him. so ya she (this is all hypothetical) leaves the guy friend because she wasnt getting anything at all from him. so he'll stay there being spiteful and angry cause she left him but she might have helped him learn a lesson and to open up in further relationships.

    i love how she ends it with ice, ice baby.

    i love this girl.
