Cold As Stone



She left town early on a FridayHeadin' down to family in New OrleansSaid she needed to feel the sun on her face,Talk it out with herself,Try to get things straight.Lord all I know is I don't wanna breathe.
I wish I was cold as stone,Then I wouldn't feel a thing.I wish I didn't have this heart,Then I wouldn't know the sting of the rain.I could stand strong and still,Watching you walk away.I wouldn't hurt like this,Or feel so all alone.I wish I was cold as stone.
Almost turned around in Mississippi,Pulled over on the shoulder along the way.Thought by now, I'd be fineBut all these tears are blurring every line.And I think back to when you were mine.
I wish I was cold as stone,Then I wouldn't feel a thing.I wish I didn't have this heart,Then I wouldn't know the sting of the rain.I could stand on my ownLetting your memory fadeI wouldn't hurt like this,Or feel so all alone.I wish I was cold as stone.
Yeah, it's gonna take forever to get over you.Oh, and I don't think this pain's gonna go away.Oh, scars left when it's said and done remain.
I wish I was cold as stone.I wish I was cold as stone.
I wish I was cold as stone,Then I wouldn't feel a thing.I wish I didn't have this heart,Then I wouldn't know the sting of the rain.I could stand strong and still,Watching you walk away.I wouldn't hurt like this,Or feel so all alone.I wish I was cold as stone.I wish I was cold as stone.
