Frost and Fire

This song is by Everything but the Girl and appears on the album Eden (1984) and on the album Everything But the Girl (1984).

You take the name of a man you hardly know
And then you grow up and that name has to go
Married with kids and they don't want to know
About the dreams you had let go
You're still waiting for a knight in shining armour
To steal you against your will
And while you're waiting and doing no harm
You know there's plenty of time to kill
When you say you wouldn't change a day
Makes me wonder where I went astray
Satisfied with things that leave me tired we're as unlike as Frost and Fire

And now yourself you start to see in me
Pictures of things you could've been
Torches I find I am bearing for you
When you know you could've carried them too
We give up so easily what little they leave us to lose
And if I didn't have the fire to struggle
I could freeze your shoes
When you say you wouldn't change a day
Makes me wonder where I went astray
Satisfied with things that leave me tired
We're as unlike as Frost and Fire
