Cowboy Junkies-Cold Tea Blues

If I pour your cup, that is friendship
If I add you milk, that is manners
If I stop there, claiming ignorance of taste
That is tea

If I pour your cup, that is friendship
If I add you milk, that is manners
If I stop there, claiming ignorance of taste
That is tea

But if I measure the sugar
To satisfy your expectant tongue
Then that is love

But if I measure the sugar
To satisfy your expectant tongue
Then that is love
Sitting untouched and growing cold

  1. A beautiful song, pamela. I love her voice.

  2. Oh I love this – had not heard it before. I love her voice, too! Thanks, Pamela.

  3. The song says so much in so few words. A sadness and longing that is palpable…breathed in and out slowly.

  4. First time to hear this singer. Glad you introduced me.

  5. Margo Timmins has a voice like an angel for me. She soothes my worried heart.

  6. Great song to hear Pamelita! The repetitions give an effect of wanting to be together and nearer to each other. Wonderful!
