In The Cold, Cold Night

  • I saw you standing in the corner
    On the edge of a burning light
    I saw you standing in the corner
    Come to me again in the cold, cold night

    You make me feel a little older
    Like a full grown woman might
    But when you're gone I grow colder
    Come to me again in the cold, cold night

    I see you walking by my front door
    I hear the creaking of the kitchen floor
    I don't care what other people say
    I'm going to love you, anyway
    Come to me again in the cold, cold night

    I can't stand it any longer
    I need the fuel to make my fire burn bright
    So don't fight it any longer
    Come to me again in the cold, cold night

    And I know that you feel it too
    When my skin turns into glue
    You will know that it's warm inside
    And you'll come run to me, in the cold, cold night Writer/s: DAVID WHITE, JOHN MADARA

  • Autumn from Rome, ItalyYes, I agree, the White Stripes are a minimalist band. Doesn't Jack have some sort of infatuation with the number 3? Anyway, one way to look at the song? If Jack sung this piece, the song surely would have not sold. Meg has a raw tone...and it fits this song, specifically.
  • Adrian from Brookings, SdMeg doesn't have the best singing voice in the world, but even its simple, off-key quality is somehow soothing to the ears. I can see why Jack chose to have her sing it.
  • Dragonkillernz from Christchurch, New ZealandMeg has a fantastic voice, very bluesy.
  • Sheen from Dallas, TxOkay, whoa, Meg can totally play the drums. She just doesn't have the speed and technical prowess that you Mike Portnoy and Neil Peart fans like. This band is supposed to be as minimal as possible, hence Meg's minimalist, childlike style. In other words, I win and you lose.
  • Alex from Perth, Australiaall the songs that meg sings are the worst white stripes songs, she cant sing and she cant play the drums, not even in the slightest, which shows how one great music mind (jack) can carry another person into rock fame.
  • Jon from Oakridge, OrI give this song two thumbs way up.
  • Rene from Chicago, IlI love to hear Meg sing. She has a great, raw voice!
  • Shaun from Not Telling, Txi'm not saying she was horrible...but don't you think Meg was a little, um, bad on the song? She didn't sound good. If you haven't heard this song before then look at a picture of Meg, try to make a good guess of how she sings, then buy Elephant, and listen to this song. You'll probably notice a big difference than what you were thinking of
  • Danny from Sydney, AustraliaThey did this song at big day out. Meg did pretty well and the crowd cheered her on.
