About the song
"Lady Ice" features bass player Mark Egan with his very distinctive fretless sound, plus percussion by David Van Tieghem from New York. Its been written that when Yasmin Le Bon first heard this song, was the moment she fell in love with Simon.
Lady Ice slips into her soul Lady Ice leaves a house so cold Lady Ice did you know That the world was lonely too Drifting snows Searching plains and high TUrning stones as she looks For the heart somebody stole She knows the violation In lovers arms without occasion But who knows where to find A true heart for Lady Ice Mesmerised In the candle flame Compromised by the cruel bands Of steel around her breasts She knows the desolation Of lover's arms their isolation But who knows where to find A true heart for Lady Ice Lady's eyes slip away To the part she plays in school She knows of roles and hideaways Suppose she knows but turns away She knows where to find A true heart for Lady Ice Lady Ice Step outside your soul lady Ice do you know That the world is frightened too
