Cold Heart (Shearer)

About Cold Heart

An angry break-up song arising from not seeing a situation for what it was and only for what I wanted it to be. Several relationships down the line I realised the song could be sung about me too. Life seems like that sometimes (okay I'm starting to think all the time): trying to show us both sides of the story (so that we can be more understanding). I guess It's Just Not There is the other side of the coin.

The song has surprised me by being a bit of a "hit" when I play it live: I didn't ever think a "negative" song would be so popular. As it's evolved, it's grown into something that surpasses the original recorded version and I'd like to re-record it soon.


Thanks to Emilia Maria Zbuka for being the "cold heart".

You're so cool
I burn to touch
I thought it was just a cold front
But in the heat of the moment
I soon found out
All you've got is just a cold heart





You're nobody's fool
You don't care too much
I hoped it was just a cold front
But in the heat of the moment
I soon found out
All you've got is just a cold heart



I fell for glacial passion
Under your spell
I thought I was in heaven
Too cold for hell
But in the heat of the moment
I soon found out
All you've got is just a cold heart



It makes me shiver
I was in love with you
You looked so nice
But you're as cold as ice
And in the heat of the moment
I soon found out
All you've got is just a cold heart



What has made you this way?
What is the pain that you've frozen away?
Is there a wound you hide?
Why are you so numb inside?
What has happend to you before?
Could you trust enough to thaw?
Could you shed a melting tear?
Would you ever let anyone get near?



You say you don't want to be tied down
You want to be free and travel around
Well I hope you don't get too travel sick
It's a long way to the Artic



You're an Artic wolf in sheep's disguise
But I've pulled the wool from over my eyes
So go and find yourself a polar bear
Go on, go and see if I care
'Cos all you've got is just a cold heart
All you've got is just a cold heart
All you've got is just a cold heart
All you've got is just a cold heart

Joanne Kelly / Strawberry Sundae Radio Show

Reading DJ Joanne wrote a very nice review of a gig I did in 2012 and has played Something Wild quite a few times on her Strawberry Sunday Radio show. Later in the year I had a great interview with her which can be found here, the success of which I think was largely due to the obvious background work she did in preparation for the interview.


Understandably I'm biased because Joanne has been so favourable but I do think she does a great show if you like indie rock, hearing about upcoming bands and a lot more more besides. Strawberry Sundae is on every Sunday at 7pm for two hours. More details can be found here.
