I only wanted to play
I thought what he didn't know wouldn't hurt him anyway
But he found out and someone else gave him her hand to hold
And suddenly I find myself out in the cold

He trusted me all the time
I thought I could see another man and he would still be mine
Well yesterday I had a good thing worth more than gold
Today he's got a truer love and I'm out in the cold

I had a love warmer than fire, but I listened to my desire
Now yesterday's dreams are tomorrow's heart aches
I'm payin' for my mistakes, now girl, take a tip from one who knows
If you open up a new door, you may find the old one's closed

So be true to your good man
Take a lesson from the story I have told
Or you just might get a left now out in the cold
You just might get a left now out in the cold

Don't let yourself get left now out in the cold
Don't let yourself get a left now out in the cold

King, Carole
