Lyrics

Playing it Cool
And I know best,
Keep your cards close to your chest
Cause when you lay it down you might not be the winner.
And I know that you wanted more in fact
But I froze you out, now there’s just one for dinner.

Chorus
Playin’ it cool as an ice cream on a summer sidewalk
What a fool, didn’t think it through I know that’s my fault
What to do, is the question but I don’t have an answer
But it’s not playin’ it cool

Verses
Gotta hold back, ‘cause you’re vulnerable to attack
When that table turns, you know the milk’s a spiller
I’m afraid of being the only one in love
‘cause when you poor it out, the emptiness is killer

Chorus
Playin’ it cool as an ice cream on a summer sidewalk
What a fool, didn’t think it through I know that’s my fault
What to do, is the question but I don’t have an answer
But it’s not playin’ it cool

Bridge
You can’t avoid the pain
The sunshine or the rain
So you might as well get on with it
There’s nothing to be gained

Chorus
Playin’ it cool as an ice cream on a summer sidewalk
What a fool, didn’t think it through I know that’s my fault
What to do, is the question but I don’t have an answer
But it’s not playin’ it cool
