The coldest shoulder cast in metal Frozen to the bone To rely on hook, line and sinker What a sinker, sinking like a stone You'd be better off alone She saw me on the television, underneath the sun Thought that I was warm like a mother, lover, brother Brother, she was wrong Me, I don't long to belong Time
