Cool Hand        

You fake it for the money        
I take it coz I can    
smile - but it sure ain’t funny
how this deal got out of hand     

You suck it up for livin’
thrive on my flesh ‘n’ blood
stop - but you just keep cuttin’            
I’d walk if my weakness could

Gotta go - before I stay    
before it’s all too late

You’re the cool hand
that holds me - 
you’re the cruel hand
that chokes me - 
I’m the fool who
won’t walk away
day after day

I’ll leave you cold one morning
you’ll miss me when I’m gone
now - this clock starts ticking
those dark days are still to come

You’re the cool hand
that holds me - 
you’re the cruel hand
that chokes me - 
I’m the fool who
won’t walk away
day after day

I’ve found new hope
from a voice I met inside
when you wake - I’ll be gone
no more hurt to hide

You’re the cool hand
that holds me - 
you’re the cruel hand
that chokes me - 
I’m the fool who
won’t walk away
day after day
