Walking On Thin Ice

Walking on thin ice
photo©Allan Tannenbaum Iīm paying the price
For throwing dice in the air
Why must we learn it the hard way
And play the game of life with your heart

I gave you my knife
You gave me my life
Like a gush of wind in my hair
Why do we forget whatīs been said
And play the game of life with our hearts

I may cry some day
But the tears will dry whichever way
And when our hearts return to ashes
Itīll be just a story
Itīll be just a story

"I knew a girl
Who tried to walk across the lake
īCourse it was winter and all this was ice
Thatīs hell of a thing to do, you know
They say this lake is as big as the ocean
I wonder if she knew about it?"
