I came across, “Cold Kisses” and was impressed by it. “Cold Kisses” is on Richard Thompson’s album, “Action Packed,” which was released in 2001. The album is a retrospective look at Thompson’s time with Capitol Records and brings together songs from each of the albums that he recorded for that label.

Here I am in your room going through your stuff
Said you’d be gone five minutes, that’s time enough
Here in your drawer there’s lacy things
Old credit cards and beads and bangles and rings

But I think I’ve found what I’m looking for
Hidden away at the back of the drawer
Here’s the life that you led before

Old photographs of the life you led
Arm in arm with Mr. X, Y, and Zed
Old boyfriends big and small
Got to see how I measure up to them all

There is a place we all must start love
Who were you holding in that fond embrace
I’ve found a door into your heart love
And do you still feel the warmth of cold kisses?

Here I am behind enemy lines
Looking for secrets, looking for signs
Old boyfriends, big and small
Got to see how I measure up to them all

This one’s handsome, not too bright
This one’s clever with his hands alright
Tougher than me if it came to a fight

And this one’s a poet, a bit of a wet
Bit of a gypsy, a bit of a threat
I wonder if she’s got over him yet

Old passions frozen in the second
Who were you holding in that fond embrace
Hearts have a past that must be reckoned
And do you still feel the warmth of cold kisses?

Time to put the past away
That’s your footstep in the street I’d say
Tie the ribbon back around it
Everything just the way I found it

And I can hear you turn the key
And my head’s buried when you see me
In a Margaret Miller mystery

And do you still feel the warmth of cold kisses?
Do you still feel the warmth of cold kisses?

Songwriters: Richard John Thompson
