One Cold Day

Album: Broken Crown Halo (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • This song is dedicated to the late Claudio Leo, who played with the band from 1995-1998 and passed away in January 2013. Lacuna Coil's co-vocalist Andrea Ferro told The Rock Pit: "Marco wrote the music, after we lost our first guitar player Claudio Leo who we'd know since we were kids. When I was 16 or 17 we used to hang out in the same Metal bars, and he was a friend not just a fellow musician. So it's been very tough, and that song has a very special meaning for us."

    "We wrote the lyrics imagining life as a natural passage, we had lots of natural images like the rain and other forces of nature because at the end of the day life and death are both part of the same game, you can't have one without the other," he continued. "And even though no one is ever ready to face it you have to kind of let it go. So we wanted to celebrate his life, his friendship and let him know he will be someone who will always be with us."
