cold as the mountains

I changed two lines in the chorus variant:

fierce as a cornered and desperate rat
deluded as someone who can't stand the truth
frantic as thieves who've been caught in the act

mean as the liar who needs an excuse

DONE ;-)

cold as the mountains - cont.

she takes her time
she ain't no fool
she gets me hot
she plays it cool
and she knows what she wants

cold as the mountains that reach for the sky
tall as the small man asserting his claim
sharp as the gambler who wins without fight
calm as the hunter as he's taking aim

she can be harsh
she can be tough
when in the wrong
she lies and bluffs
like she fights for her life

fierce as a cornered and desperate rat
dashed as the lover who wanted the truth*
frantic as those who've been caught in the act
mean as the liar who needs an excuse

she's a strong-willed
pig-headed beast
she's ill-suited
for poor old me
I can't stand up to her

cold as the mountains that reach for the sky
tall as the small man asserting his claim
sharp as the gambler who wins without fight
calm as the hunter as he's taking aim



As much as I love it I think I may have to replace or rephrase this line as it doesn't go too well with the context.
