Cold Wind

 

 

I followed my dreams down a dead end road

Where the rainbow ends

            but there isn't no gold

I squandered my money

            abandoned my friends

Chasing a vision that died in the wind

Chasing a vision that died in the wind

 

Ooh oooh it's a cold wind that blows

When you've played your hand

            but you've got nothing to show

Walk away now

            while you still can

But you know you won't

            you were born to toss

                        your hat in the ring once again

 

I followed my dreams down a dead end road

Where the rainbow ends

            but there isn't no gold

I squandered my money

            abandoned my friends

Chasing a vision that died in the wind

Chasing a vision that died in the wind

 

Ooh oooh it's a cold wind that cries

For the prisoner

            of a hope that never dies

Reach out now

            for a fading glimmer of light

From the guiding star

            of a cause that's lost

                        that leads you into the night

 

I followed my dreams down a dead end road

Where the rainbow ends

            but there isn't no gold

I squandered my money

            abandoned my friends

Chasing a vision that died in the wind

Chasing a vision that died in the wind
