Out in the Cold (Live)

Out in the Cold (Live)

Carole King

Lyrics: 

I only wanted to play
I thought what he didn't know wouldn't hurt him anyway
But he found out
And someone else gave him her hand to hold
And suddenly I find myself
Out in the cold

He trusted me all the time
I thought I could see another man and he would still be mine
Well, yesterday I had a good thing, worth more than gold
Today he's got a truer love and I'm
Out in the cold

I had a love warmer than fire
But I listened to my desire
Now yesterday's dreams are tomorrow's heartaches
I'm payin' for my mistakes

Now girl, take a tip from one who knows
If you open up a new door
You may find the old one's closed
So be true to your good man
Take a lesson from the story I have told
Or you just might get left now
Out in the cold
You just might get left now
Out in the cold
Don't let yourself get left now
Out in the cold
