Crossfade – Cold lyrics

Looking back at me I see
That I never really got it right
I never stopped to think of you
I'm always wrapped up in
Things I cannot win
You are the antidote that gets me by
Something strong
Like a drug that gets me high

What I really meant to say
Is I'm sorry for the way I am
I never meant to be so cold,
Never meant to be so cold

What I really meant to say
Is I'm sorry for the way I am
I never meant to be so cold,
Never meant to be so cold

To you, I'm sorry about all the lies
Maybe in a different light
You could see me stand on my own again
Cause now I can see
You were the antidote that got me by
Something strong like a drug that got me high

What I really meant to say
Is I'm sorry for the way I am
I never meant to be so cold,
Never meant to be so cold

What I really meant to say
Is I'm sorry for the way I am
I never meant to be so cold,
Never meant to be so cold

I never meant to be so cold

(quitter solo)

I never really wanted you to see
The screwed up side of me that I keep
Locked inside of me so deep
It always seems to get to me
I never really wanted you to go
So many things you should have known
I guess for me there's just no hope
I never meant to be so cold

What I really meant to say
Is I'm sorry for the way I am
I never meant to be so cold,
Never meant to be so cold

What I really meant to say
Is I'm sorry for the way I am
I never meant to be so cold,
Never meant to be so cold

    I think sometimes in relationships, its hard to really break down and show our vulnerable side. So we put up barriers. We put up walls. We put up a cold front to make sure our hearts aren't broken. I think this song is about a guy who did that and didn't realize it until it was too late. He never meant to be so cold, but it just kinda happened.

    She was his Sunshine but he didn't realize it until after he pushed her out of his life. I'm sure she made everything okay. And when she was gone, he realized he had done it all wrong. She was never his priority as she should have been, because he was just wrapped up in other things, in things he couldn't win. In the end, we are who we are and we bring that person to relationships too - sad that he because of how he had been damaged in life could only be cold and not show himself & be present in his love for her & in their relationship.

    This guy felt like a jerk and wants to show his true love that he is really sorry for everything that ever happened. In relationships, its super hard to keep certain things out of the way, and try to focus on the couple themselves. And if the something comes in the way. That can sometimes lead to heartbreak and nonforgiveness. And if the guy really cares about this girl. He will straighten up and show that he really wants to be with her. He just didn't want to show the bad side of him because he wanted to be perfect for her. Well there is no perfect person and there is no perfect relationship. For me. I really wish there was a side that I could see for the guys I've been dating. But sometimes the grass isn't greener on the other side.

    Having gone through a restoration program myself, I really do understand. I saw always knew you holding something back, and being the person I was then, I did what I always do. I thought the worst of you. I thought the worst of everyone. Your family, my family and even your neighbours.
    I always thought about myself. You always said that I'm selfish, and it made me angry. I never thought I was. You were right though. I was consumed in what I wanted. Yes I saw you holding something back. I also saw pain. I also saw trauma and I chose to ignore that. Had I given you your due and pay more attention to you I could've been a better partner. But I failed and accused you of cheating. I know now how that must of hurt. Being accused of cheating while having to deal with what you have be en through, must have been real painful. Yes, I am very sorry and I know that saying is not enough. (Your apology is accepted - thank you). I have much work to do on myself. It's gonna start with complete honesty. That's all I'll say now. One day at a time. Do know I want to do all I can to assure you that this has no impact on how I feel about you and nor on what I want for us. Long time ago, you mentioned couples counseling. I feel we should. To the entire Arendse Family and extended Family. Know that I Love Lisa. I Love her dearly. I cannot function without her. I cannot forgive myself for being a better partner. If by God's grace, Lisa allows me into her life again, I would like each and every one of you to know that I respect her very much. She has proven to be the toughest cookie I know. And she and this experience has taught me much. Lisa I love you. And yes I can look past this. Please know that it's the past, and it has no bearing on who you are. Coming out of this you are nothing short of amazing and woman from across the world should like up to you. It must be hard. And if this is the only way you can tell me. That is fine. To my Family, The Adams, Wyngaards, Williams and Scholtz families. Lisa is my better 3 quarters. Lisa is the woman I want to marry. I Love her that much. And it's my God given responsibility. Yes, I talk to him. Thank you to all of you, I can never thank you enough for what you have done in Lisa's Life as well as mine. Ans Yes, I would love to see these 2 families united. Lisa, I will propose this time. Lisa, the value You add to my life is much more than I deserve. Do know that without you I am lost. You are not just my better 3 quarters, but I also learned that you my sanity as well. Sorry for the hurt I caused You. Sorry for disappointing You. Sorry for not being there for You. Please forgive me and know that a chance at a fresh start will be much appreciated and worth it. I Love You, To infinity and beyond, always and forever, No Matter what!

    We are the way we are. This song shows that in relationships we often take each other for granted and try hard "to stand our ground", while, that way, we actually kill the love, hurt each other, fall apart. And only when one partner says enough and walks away, we realize that relationship is about "being together, compromising, changing our ways rather than trying to prove to be "right" and we are sorry. But - it is too late.
