Liner Notes: 

This is not autobiographical, well not currently, maybe in the past once or twice !

The inspiration came simply from the title springing from my fingertips as I sat down to type, and the rest followed pretty quickly after that.

Collab welcome

**************************************************************
Technical bit Sad

Collaborations:
The next bit sounds harsher than it is - it's mainly just to ensure that we are on the same playing field Smile

Please ask me first if you would like to use my lyrics, just in case someone else has already asked and has started working with them.

If you wish to collaborate with a view to the finished song being used outside/after 50/90, please check with me before we start, as I often use my lyrics professionally with non 50/90 co-writers, after 50/90 Smile

If you wish to change my lyrics, please check with me first to ensure I'm happy with the changes. I am usually open to discussion, as that is how collaboration works !

The above isn't meant to sound difficult, it's just a matter of sorting what we are doing before we start, so everyone is happy - communication ! Smile

Many thanks, love and peace,
Amanda Smile

Lyrics: 

ch
It's a cold world
Ice seeps through my skin and spears my heart
It's a cold world
There's a chill that freezes heaven here on earth

v
I've given up with all your games
No more aches and no more pain
Who I am will never be your gain

v
The endless jibes you throw away
Will catch you up on judgement day
I know I will never be your prey

pre ch
Can't you just leave me to myself

ch
It's a cold world
Ice seeps through my skin and spears my heart
It's a cold world
There's a chill that freezes heaven here on earth

br
Everything is coated in the dust of humankind
Doesn't matter now I know
How my life will play on out
Snow blind clouds of laughter drought
That's how I will be defined

ch
It's a cold world
Ice seeps through my skin and spears my heart
It's a cold world
There's a chill that freezes heaven here on earth

It's a cold world
Ice seeps through my skin and spears my heart
It's a cold world
There's a chill that freezes heaven here on earth



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

I like how you keep your writing very simple but you manage to get in some originality too. "Ice spears my heart" and "coated in the dust of humankind" stuck out for me!
