The Cold Embrace Alex Hamilton
Every little bit hurts ..
E L B H.
Every nite I cry Every nite I sigh
” ” I wonder why oh you treat me cold
Yet you won’t let me go – –
E L B H E L H C E L H C [Every little hurt counts]
You say your [sic] coming home yet you
never phone leave me all alone
my love is strong for you I do wrong – –
I can’t . . Take this lonlyness [sic] you give
me. I can’t go on giving my life away
come back to me darling
you’ll see I can give you all
the things that you wanted me for.
If you will stay with me

To you I am a toy and your [sic] the boy
Who has to say when I can play you
you hurt me desert me.
