She came on to him like a slow moving cold front
His beer was warmer than the look in her eye
She sat on a stool he said "what do you want"
She said "give me a love that don't freeze up inside"

He said I have melted some hearts in my time dear
But to sit next to you, lord I shiver and shake
And if I knew love, don't think I'd be here
Asking myself if I have what it takes

To melt your icy blue heart
Should I start
To turn what's been frozen for years
Into a river of tears

These days we all play cool calm and collected
Why, our lips could turn blue shootin' the breeze
But under the frost thought he detected
A warm blush of red and a touch of her knees

He said girl you've a beauty like I've never witnessed
And I've seen the northern lights dance in the air
But I've felt the cold follow the first kiss
And there's not enough heat in the fire burning there

To melt your icy blue heart
Should I start
To turn what's been frozen for years
Into a river of tears

To melt your icy blue heart
Should I start
To turn what's been frozen for years
Into a river of tears
