Cold Feet - Tracy Chapman

Written by:Tracy Chapman

 

There was a little boy

Once upon a time

Who in spite of his young age

 

And small size knew his mind

 

For every copper penny

And clover he would find

Make a wish for better days

 

The end of hard times

For no more

 

Cold feet

 

Cold cold cold cold feet

 

His clothes were always clean

 

His face was always scrubbed

There was food on the table

 

Enough to fill him up

His house was full of life

His house was full of love

But when winter days arrived

There was never money enough to shod his

 

Cold feet

 

Cold cold cold cold feet

 

He grew up to be a worker

 

Determined to succeed

He made a life for himself

Free from worldly wants or needs

But with nobody to share the life he'd made

No body to keep him warm

At night when he'd go to sleep

 

He'd sleep alone with his

 

Cold feet

 

Cold cold cold cold feet

 

One night he walked the street

Looking to the heaven's above

Searching for a shooting star

 

A benevolent God

 

When a woman passing by brushed his arm

He turned and found love

He then wished for the courage to ask this stranger

Who she was to not have

 

Cold feet

 

Cold cold cold cold feet

 

One year later he stood beside her

I'll give you everything you want

She said I'll take some love

From my heart to keep your body warm

You won't have

 

Cold feet

 

Cold cold cold cold feet

 

That she'd like the party life

And want the finer things

So he promised more than he could buy

 

He promised her the sun

And moon to not have

 

Cold feet

 

Cold cold cold cold feet

 

He worked day and night

 

His fingers to the bone

 

His worried mind

 

Guilty conscience drive him on

 

He can't give her what she needs

He wants to give her what he thinks she wants

 

Her sad face

 

His empty pockets drive him on

 

And his

Cold feet

 

Cold cold cold cold feet

 

He'd struggled all his life

 

To be an honest man

Proud that the dirt on his palms

Was the soil of the land

Some guys he knew from high school days

Said they had a plan to get rich well quick

 

And they could count him in if he don't have

 

Cold feet

 

Cold cold cold cold feet

 

He thought about their offer

Accepted it without qualms

 

Dreamt about the life he'd buy

The comfort that would come without

 

Cold feet

 

Cold cold cold cold feet

 

He decided to drive the car

 

He decided to carry the gun

To take the biggest risk of all

To prove his loyalty to his friends

He decided to tell his wife

 

Things would soon turn around

He said the little boy is dead

A man stands with you now without

 

Cold feet

 

Cold cold cold cold feet

 

Without

 

Cold feet

 

Cold cold cold cold feet

 

He thought he'd set his clock right

He thought he'd read his watch

He left in such a hurry

He didn't think to wish for luck

Makes no difference if you're early

No difference if you're late

 

When you're out of time

The flowers have been laid

 

You're six feet underground with

 

Cold feet

 

Cold cold cold cold feet
