Thursday Inspiration — Cold As Ice

For this week’s Thursday Inspiration prompt, Jim Adams has given us the word “cold” and the above photo to serve as our inspiration. Seeing the word and the picture Jim presented, the 1977 song, “Cold As Ice” by British-American rock band Foreigner, came to mind. It was written by band members Lou Gramm and Mick Jones, and peaked at number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The song describes a woman who is materialistic and selfish, with the singer warning that her behavior will come back to haunt her someday.

I featured this song back in April of 2019 for Jim Adams’ Song Lyric Sunday prompt, but it’s a great classic rock song, so I hope he’ll forgive me for using it again.

You're as cold as ice
You're willing to sacrifice our love
You never take advice
Someday you'll pay the price, I know

I've seen it before
It happens all the time
Closing the door
You leave the world behind

You're digging for gold
Yet throwing away
A fortune in feelings
But someday you'll pay

You're as cold as ice
You're willing to sacrifice our love
You want paradise
But someday you'll pay the price, I know

I've seen it before
It happens all the time
Closing the door
You leave the world behind

You're digging for gold
Yet throwing away
A fortune in feelings
But someday you'll pay

(Cold as ice)
You know that you are
(Cold as ice)
As cold as ice to me
(Cold as ice)

(Ooh, ooh, ooh, you're as cold as ice)
(You're as cold as ice)
You're as cold as ice
Cold as ice I know
Yes, I know
You're as cold as ice
Cold as ice I know
Oh, yes I know
You're as cold as ice
Cold as ice I know
Oh, yes I know

    Foreigner made some great music, and I am always happy to listen to them. This song goes great with the prompt Fandango, thanks for participating.

    It’s being said that Jada Pinket S is psychopathic or narcissistic such that Will snapped — but that this isn’t an excuse for what he did on Sunday or for his non-apology apology wherein he blamed everyone [including “god”], other than Jada, except himself.
