STONE COLD SOBER (Gordon Lightfoot) As recorded Gordon Lightfoot 1999 If you really knew how many times I've tried to help you Make your mind up in the matters of the heart, you'd not be bothered By the miscues or the bad trips, that seem to come and plague us Having thought it over, I sure would like to talk to you again. I was stone cold sober, it was daylight in October When you reached across the table, put your hand upon my shoulder And my lips were warm with kissing, while we found the missing pieces To all the empty spaces, I sure would like to talk that way again. We have soared above the clouds, we've heard the angels breathing While we made love in the morning, there was never talk of leaving We would lie that way for hours with our arms around each other It was all so easy, I sure would like to talk to you again. (bridge) 'Cause I'm stone cold sober, the daylight has crossed over In the night, a touch of sadness We had it comin', had it goin' way back then. I was stone cold sober when I woke the morning after Having shattered the illusions of the object of my passion With a will made out of iron and a mind that is her own Having thought it over, I sure would like to talk to her again. We had it comin', had it goin' way back then. I hope that we can see each other often, then our points of view Will blend into each other, like the sea and the horizon The sun will shine upon us as we live our lives forever Havin' thought it over, I sure would like to talk to you again.
