Cold Anger On
by Karen Robinson

Second hand wedding dress, third hand man. Stars in her eyes and a wedding band
House in the country, ten mile ride. Who knew? Who knew? with Jekyll & Hyde

Smile on his face, Devil in his eyes. She never knew if there’d be charm or lies
Cigarette burns in the shape of flowers. She hid… hid for hours

He came home with a cold anger on. He came home with a cold anger on
Sticks and stones can break her bones, and words break heart and soul

Gave up her babies to the County for care. Kept a packed suitcase hidden upstairs
Talked to the Mountie. He’d seen it all before. Tried to run, tried to run a dozen times or more

And once she even tried to end it with propane. But she came back… came back again
Half numb, hardly thinking, but it’s gotta be done. Keep quiet…… Can’t breathe... can’t breathe in here

He came home with a cold anger on. He came home with a cold anger on
Sticks and stones could break his bones, but words won’t save her soul.

Heavy…sharp…fear…pulsing in her head. Grabbed the few dollars hidden under the bed
She ran down the lane as fast as fright. Ran… ran for her babies…into the night

He’ll come home with a cold anger on. Yes, he’ll come home but she’ll be gone.
‘Cause she ran down the lane as fast as fright. Ran… ran for her babies…into the night.
