Cold

You ever stand in the shower

Staring at the wall

And turn the heat up

Because the water’s just not warm enough

And you stare at the wall

You could shampoo up, now

But the water’s just so cold

So you turn the heat up

And stare at the wall

Not that you really see the wall, anyway

But you’re in no hurry

And the soap’s untouched

So you turn up the heat

Because the water’s just so cold

You’re just so cold

And the steam is just so cold

So you turn the heat up

And the wall’s not there

And the water’s not there

And you’re not there

I mean, not really there

And you turn the heat up

Except the handle won’t turn anymore

So you just stand there

And stare at the wall

Just so

Cold
