Carole King – Out In The Cold lyrics

I only wanted to play,
I thought what he didn't know
Wouldn't hurt him anyway.
But he found out and
Someone else gave him her hand to hold.
And suddenly I find myself out in the cold.
He trusted me all the time.
I thought I could see another man
And he would still be mine.
Well yesterday I had a good thing
Worth more than gold.
Today he's got a truer love and I'm out in the cold.
I had a love warmer than fire.
But I listened to my desire.
Now yesterday's dreams are tomorrow's hearache
I'm paying, paying for my mistake.
Now, girl, take a tip from one who knows.
If you open up a new door
You may find the old one's closed.
So be true to your good man
Take a lesson from this story I have told.
Or you just might get left now
Out in the cold.
You just might get left now
Out in the cold.
Don't let yourself get left now
Out in the cold.
Don't let yourself get left now
Out in the cold.
