Lyrics for Cold as Ice by Foreigner:

Verse 1
You're as cold as ice
You're willing to sacrifice our love
You never take advice
Some day, you'll pay the price
I know

Chorus
I've seen it before, it happens all the time (Ooh-ooh)
You're closing the door, you leave the world behind
You're digging for gold, you're throwing away (Ah, ah)
A fortune in feelings but, some day, you'll pay

Verse 2
You're as cold as ice
You're willing to sacrifice our love
You want paradise
But some day, you'll pay the price
I know

Chorus
I've seen it before, it happens all the time (Ooh-ooh)
You're closing the door, you leave the world behind
You're digging for gold, you're throwing away (Ah, ah)
A fortune in feelings but, some day, you'll pay

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

Outro
Ooh, ooh, ooh, cold as, cold as ice
You're as cold as ice
You're as cold as ice, cold as ice, I know
You're as cold as ice, yes I know
You're as cold as ice, cold as ice, I know
You're as cold as ice, oh, yes I know
You're as cold as ice, cold as ice, I know
You're as cold as ice, oh, yes I know
You're as cold as ice, cold as ice

Song Facts

This song describes a lover who is materialistic and selfish, with the singer warning that their behavior will come back to haunt them someday.

Foreigner’s guitarist Mick Jones, who formed the band in 1976 and wrote this song with lead singer Lou Gramm, said:

Subconsciously you draw from stuff, things that happened in your past, things that came out of relationships, the pain and the heartache of love that is intense and then so deep, and then suddenly you lose it. The whole gamut of emotional feeling that you go through in a relationship. Sometimes they end, and sometimes they last, and when it’s the final breakup, you’re left with the memories of that relationship. So I go for that quite a bit. You’re kind of digging down deep into your well of significant things that you recall from sometimes near tragedy that you go through at the time."
