"In the Cold, Cold Night" as written by David White and John Madara....
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

    General CommentNo, Meg's not that great of a singer, but this song doesn't require an amazing singer to be good. Meg does a great job with it, on the album and at concerts.
    Anyway, I don't think this song is about death, I think it's about a woman who is in love with a man who other people say is bad, or who doesn't love her.

    General CommentThis song is obviously about her love for an older (possibly) man who other people don't exactly like ("I don't care what other people say. . . I'm gonna love you anyway").

    I like her voice. . . it's not the greatest, but it's very cool and smooth.

    General CommentAhhh, I love this song! Meg's voice is perfect for it, just PERFECT!

    I think the song is about loving a man who other people don't approve of (I don't care what other people say/I'm goin' to love you anyway), and who doesn't yet admit to himself what he feels for her (I can't stand it any longer/I need fuel to make my fire bright/So don't fight it any longer...), but still comes to her in 'the cold cold night'

    But I might be talking DRIVEL!

    General CommentMeg's voice is alright... I liek the way she sings her words and how she inflects." I saw her standing in a corner, on the edge of a burning li-eet"..phrasing.. it makes it more swanky and cool.
