Freeze You Out - Sia

The Experience: Sia's snippet gives us the cold rage after fallen love. "I will build a wall... a dam" to shut you out, she promises. Love's heat is intense - when it turns to cold hate, it's just as intense. Can it thaw?



Music Video: Scenes from The Huntsman: Winter's War. 

The meaning of Sia's snippet Cold Love is in the lines "I'm not running again. I will freeze you off." Love gone cold is hard as ice. Love is meant to power our lives. Betrayed love will also be a motor, but in a terrible way. The full lyrics change that: if my heart freezes forever, they will have won. So I won't let it - I won't freeze you out like I have been.

Ask Yourself: Why is love so intense - in hot or cold?

LYRICS:

You know I've been hurt before
Yeah, you know the score and I know you want more
You want me to thaw out
But you know I get ice cold, I get cold
When you don't go slow, but I know you want more
You need me to thaw out

And I know you were worth it
And I know this could work if
I could only let you in
But I'm freezing

I'm not running away
I'm not running away
I will feel the pain and stay
I'm not running again
I'm not running again
Even though I'm scared, baby
And I won't freeze you out
Like I have been
I won't freeze you out
I'm gonna let you in
And I won't freeze you out
Like I have been
I won't freeze you out
My heart is melting

So here's my heart for you to hold
Feel it beat, feel the warm blood flow through my cold
Feel it thaw out
Yeah, I've felt the fear but I push through
It's so worth loving you, you wanted more
And so I thawed out

And I know you were worth it
And I know this could work if
I could only let you in
But I was freezing

I'm not running away
I'm not running away
I will feel the pain and stay
I'm not running again
I'm not running again
Even though I'm scared, baby
And I won't freeze you out
Like I have been
I won't freeze you out
I'm gonna let you in
And I won't freeze you out
Like I have been
I won't freeze you out
My heart is melting

I won't freeze you out, my heart is melting
I won't freeze you out, my heart is melting

I'm not running away
I'm not running away
I will feel the pain and stay
I'm not running again
I'm not running again
Even though I'm scared, baby
And I won't freeze you out
Like I have been
I won't freeze you out
I'm gonna let you in
And I won't freeze you out
Like I have been
I won't freeze you out
My heart is melting
And I won't freeze you out
Like I have been
I won't freeze you out
I'm gonna let you in
And I won't freeze you out
Like I have been
I won't freeze you out
My heart is melting
