This was on a snowy day
There I am running late
On the way to cut you loose
Thinkin' here comes someone new

And oh, what a shame
So cold and clear
And oh, what a shame
To have been so near

I guess you know what happens next
And I'm guessin' you would laugh at it
Everything I always do
To hole in a mountain out of little ol' you
But I can't help it
You know I've tried
And it's too late anyhow

But if I'd only asked you
I think you would've been mine
And all those burning questions
Would cool off over time

And oh, what a shame
So cold and clear
And oh, what a shame
To have been so near

Now you call to say you run
Every day an hour or more
And every night you dream so clear
Of oleanders lying at your door
Well I'm doing lovely, too
You caught me with the evening news
Did you see about that girl Uptown?
In a certain light she looks a little like you

And oh, what a shame
So cold and clear
And oh, what a shame
To have been so near

But if I'd only asked you
I think you would've been mind
And all those burning questions
Would have cooled off over time
