  • In the night, I hear 'em talk
    The coldest story ever told
    Somewhere far along this road, he lost his soul to a woman so heartless
    How could you be so heartless?
    Oh, how could you be so heartless?

    How could you be so, cold as the winter wind when it breeze, yo
    Just remember that you talkin' to me though
    You know need to watch the way you talkin' to me, yo
    I mean after all the things that we've been through
    I mean after all the things we got into
    Hey yo, I know of some things that you ain't told me
    Hey yo, I did some things but that's the old me
    And now you wanna get me back and you goin' show me
    So you walk around like you don't know me
    You got a new friend, well I got homies
    But in the end it's still so lonely

    In the night, I hear 'em talk
    The coldest story ever told
    Somewhere far along this road, he lost his soul to a woman so heartless
    How could you be so heartless?
    Oh, how could you be so heartless?

    How could be so Dr. Evil, you bringin' out a side of me that I don't know
    I decided we weren't goin' speak so
    Why we up three A.M. on the phone
    Why does she be so mad at me for
    Homie I don't know, she's hot and cold
    I won't stop, I won't mess my groove up
    Cause I already know how this thing go
    You run and tell your friends that you're leaving me
    They say that they don't see what you see in me
    You wait a couple months then you gon' see
    You'll never find nobody better than me

    In the night, I hear 'em talk
    The coldest story ever told
    Somewhere far along this road, he lost his soul to a woman so heartless
    How could you be so heartless?
    Oh, how could you be so heartless?

    Talkin', talkin', talkin', talk
    Baby let's just knock it off
    They don't know what we been through
    They don't know 'bout me and you
    So I got something new to see
    And you just goin' keep hatin' me
    And we just goin' be enemies
    I know you can't believe
    I could just leave it wrong
    And you can't make it right
    I'm goin' take off tonight
    Into the night

    In the night, I hear 'em talk
    The coldest story ever told
    Somewhere far along this road, he lost his soul to a woman so heartless
    How could you be so heartless?
    Oh, how could you be so heartless? Writer/s: Benjamin Hudson McIldowie, Ernest Dion Wilson, Jeffrey Bhasker, Kanye Omari West, Malik Yusef El Shabazz Jones, Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi

  • Tiffany from Sydney, Australia:) AWESOME song!
  • Tessa from Washingtonville, PaCool song, one of my favorites.
  • Vynsint from St. Louis, MoThere's a cover of it done by The Fray, which is actually pretty good. it took Kanye's really good tune, and made it just as good with a different melody and tone. I like them both.
