"Cold" as written by Rob Thomas and Matthew Serletic....
I will do without
The spaces in between
If you can tell me now
What it means to be

You have been found out
I have been deceived
By the one that I need

Tell me why you gotta be so cold
How'd you get so high
Why you're keeping me low
You dont know, you don't know
Tell me how we're gonna make it last
You're ready to fly
I'm ready to crash
Don't go, don't go, no

You will go without
A better part of me
There will be no doubt
What this all could mean
You will be found out
I can not believe
In the one that I need

Tell me why you gotta be so cold
How'd you get so high
Why you're keeping me low
You don't know, you don't know, don't know
And tell me how we're gonna make it last
You're ready to fly
I'm ready to crash
Don't go, don't go away

Tell me why you gotta be so cold
How'd you get so high
Why you're keeping me low
You don't know, you don't know, you don't know
And tell me how we're gonna make it last
You're ready to fly
I'm ready to crash
Don't go
Yeah, don't go

Tell me why you gotta be so cold
Tell me anything about you I don't know
I don't know by now
Know by now
Tell me how we're gonna make it last
You're ready to fly
I'm ready to crash
Don't go
Yeah, don't go

    General Commenti feel like this song is about being with someone whos sort of using you for whatever reason, like they dont love you but you really love them and there sort of using you to get to a better place if that makes any sense

    "Tell me why you gotta be so cold
    How'd you get so high
    Why you keep me low"

    And even tho there treating you like shit you would rather that then not be with them at all

    General Commenti think its about a a guy who breaks up with a girl even though they are in love. after the relationship is over the guy is going off and having hookups with lots of people while the girl is just stuck there, still moping. and then the guy realizes his mistakes and wants to get back together, but the girl is hesitant and does anyway because she loves him, but stays cautious.

    General Commentyeah, I agree with you bitta, that's how I view this song! it's so intense and wound up, I looove it. it was awesome live, too. =P

    "tell me anything about you I don't know,"

    I love that line.

    I relate to this song, but I wound up having to leave the person. it was just too painful to try anymore... the best part is when that person blames YOU for leaving. yeah, right.. my ass.

    General CommentIt's so sad...MB20 know exactly how to touch me.
    I think it's about someone being mistreated as well...and yet being too attached to let go...while the other person obviously doesn't care that much...
    I've been there and it still hurts a lot.

    General CommentMy favourite line: "I have been deceived by the one that I need" :(

    General CommentHmmm Cold is pretty much about a relationship where the guy loves the girl more than she loves him. The word "fly" could mean that she's ready to leave the relationship and he's basically saying that he doesn't want that, but if she goes, then she's going to regret it: "you will go without, the better part of me" also the whole notion of cold could suggest she doesn't really care too much about what she's doing to his emotional state and feelings.
