One irrelevant thought
That started out as a spark
Could be a poisonous dart
That leaves a permanent mark
That's ice cold in the day and burns in the dark
And makes you never wanna see her face again
The jealousy and paranoia of the idea of infidelity can lead a person to do crazy things—it may even drive one’s significant other to the arms of another and become a sort of self-fulfilling prophecy.
Being “Ice cold in the day” suggests walking around emotionally numb while going about your daily routine, while “burn[ing] in the dark” is the emotion that washes over you before you fall asleep and you have nothing to distract yourself from the pain.
