"Coming In From The Cold" as written by and Bob Marley....
In this life, in this life, in this life
In this, oh sweet life
We're (we're coming in from the cold)
We're coming in, we're coming in (coming in)
We're coming in, we're coming in (coming in)
We're coming in, we're coming in (coming in)
We're coming in, we're coming in (coming in)
We're coming in from the cold

It's you, it's you, it's you I'm talkin' to
Well, you (it's you) you (it's you), you I'm talking to now
Why do you look so sad and forsaken
When one door is closed, don't you know another is open

Would you let the system make you kill your brotherman?
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, dread, no
Would you make the system make you kill your brotherman?
(No, dread, no)
Would you make the system get on top of your head again?
(No, dread, no!)
Well, the biggest man you ever did see was was just a baby

In this life (in this life)
In this (in this life, oh sweet life)
Coming in from the cold
We're coming in, we're coming (coming in), coming in-a (coming in)
Coming in (coming in), ooh (coming in)
Coming in from the cold

It's life (it's life), it's life (it's life), it's life (it's life)
It's wa well, coming in from the cold
We're coming in (coming in), coming in (coming in)
Ooh (coming in), hey (coming in)
Coming in from the cold

It's you, you, you I'm talking
Well, yes, you, bilyabong (it's you)
Ew, you I'm talking to now
Well, why do you look so, look so, look so sad
Look so sad and forsaken?
Don't you know, when one door is closed, when one door is closed
Many more is open?

Well, would you let the system get on top of your head again?
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, dread, no
Would you let the system make you kill your brotherman?
No, dread, no
Well, would you make the system get on top of your head again?
(No, dread, no) no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
Well, the biggest, biggest man you ever, ever
Did-a see was-a was-a once a baby

In this life, in this life, in this life
In this, oh, sweet life
We're (coming in from the cold) from the cold
We're coming in, we're coming in (coming in), coming in (coming in)
Coming in (coming in), wooh, yeah
Coming in from the cold

We're coming in-a, coming in-a, coming in-a, coming in-a
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Coming in from the cold
Coming in (coming in), coming in (coming in)
(Coming in) (coming in)
(Coming in) from the from the cold

    General CommentI belive this song was written when Bob know he had cancer and hadn't long to live. It's about the cycle of life and the progress that has to be made to realise a just world.

    General CommentOne of my favorite songs, I love the lyrics "Well, the biggest man you ever did see was once a baby". That line just makes me smile. it's a really optimistic song for me about the opportunities in this life, i liked how marleyman put it about treating people as if they are "coming in from the cold", and the way marley sings it is awesome too.
