THE BLEAK AND FROZEN TUNDRA
OF YOUR HEART

Words and Music by James Durst 
1978 PhoeniXongs ASCAP

I wish I had some snowshoes to help me through the snow
Each time you make excuses 'stead of simply sayin' 'no'
Your blizzards just obliterate each brand new course I chart
As I set out on my my journey 'cross
The bleak and frozen tundra of your heart

I'm wand'rin' in a wilderness, my compass long since lost
My mind's a perfect picture of the wastelands I have crossed
I'm goin' 'round in circles, ending up just where I start
With no signs to point directions on
The bleak and frozen tundra of your heart

BRIDGE

Diggin' out my dogsled, my mukluks and my gun
Puttin' on my glasses with the slits to block the sun
Pilin' on provisions for my Huskies and for me
Destination: your igloo by the sea

I'm somewhere east of happiness, I'm somewhere west of pain
Each time I think I know my way, I come stumblin' back again
Without a trail to guide me ev'rytime we are apart
I'm a lost and lone explorer on
The bleak and frozen tundra of your heart

BRIDGE

Diggin' out my dogsled, my mukluks and my gun
Puttin' on my glasses with the slits to block the sun
Pilin' on provisions for my Huskies and for me
Then we head out for your igloo by the sea

You're an icy cold and lifeless glacier borderin' on the plain
Yet some inner voice compels me to explore your grim terrain
Your world is still a territory unexplored in part
Because you're there I seek adventure on
The bleak and frozen tundra of your heart

CODA
Because you're there I seek adventure
I'm a lost and lone explorer
Where's a Mountie when you need one?
On the bleak and frozen tundra
Of your heart
