Written by Warren Zevon 1995 Zevon Music BMI

Once upon a time these stories always start
There lived a handsome prince and he had a happy heart
And a princess, too--she was a beautiful kid
She said she'd never leave him but she did

Sometimes love is wet and cold
Similar to rain, just a hard to hold
Love can make you sad and blue
If you don't watch out it'll fall all over you

Everybody knows that winter can be nice
You can play in the snow, you can skate on the ice
But you can't skate far when the ice gets thin
'Cause you might fall in

Sometimes love is wet and cold
Similar to rain, just as hard to hold
Love can make you sad and blue
If you don't watch out it'll fall all over you

Gray skies everywhere
Storm clouds know your name
Sadness in the air
Feels like rain

Sometimes love is wet and cold
Similar to rain, just a hard to hold
Love can make you sad and blue
If you don't watch out it'll fall all over you
