It's warm out tonite
But I'm freezing
She said she's moving out
But there's just no good reason
I tried to tell her not to go
I turned the fire up
But it's still twenty below

Whatever happened to the girl I used to know?
Her sunny summer breeze
Turned to frigid blasts of ice and snow
Her stares are ice
And her shoulder's turning cold
What did I do to make her mercury start dropping low

It's not the first time that he's lied to me before
But I know I've had enough
I won't listen to him anymore
If he wants someone else why won't he tell me so?
Cos I'm left out in the cold
And the temperature is twenty below

Cold showers warm me up from nights we spent in bed
That's not lipstick on my collar
And I don't know any pretty redheads
Her accusations sending cold chills up my spine
And I'll always tell the truth
Because melted snowmen never lie

It's not the first time that he's lied to me before
But I know I've had enough
I won't listen to him anymore
If he wants someone else why won't he tell me so?
Cos I'm left out in the cold
And the temperature is twenty below

Twenty below our love is freezing
Why should we carry on if there's just no good reason?
Our frozen tears have turned to snow
My love can't make a spark when your hearts twenty below

Twenty below our love is freezing
Why should we carry on if there's just no good reason?
Our frozen tears have turned to snow
My love can't make a spark when your hearts twenty below

    General Commenti love this song. my exgirlfriend was cheating on me the whole lentgh of our relationship, then blamed our breakup on me. anyway, on the girls part, the last line is, "and my temperature is twenty below".

    General Commentmy ex sent this to me on a mixed CD about a year or so after we broke up. Was he trying to tell me something?? We didn't cheat on each other, but he did break up with me because I was moving really far away.

    General CommentThose are by far the worsy lyrics I have ever heard.

    I'm going to get this song and see if it can redeem itself musically. If not, I'll be back.
