"Cold Day In The Sun" as written by David Eric Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Christopher A. Shiflett and Nate Mendel....
Take a high dive in to your brain
Made your only cause
Just might wear your welcome out if you don't' let It go

There's nothing that you couldn't say Cauze you Said it all before
Think it's time you walked this lonely road all on Your own

So it's your cold day in the sun
Looks like your bleeding heart has already won

I could take it away
Save you from yourself
You get so lost inside your head like no one else
Looking for someone to blame
Blame me all along
You take the heat but you would never take the Fall

It's your cold day in the sun
Looks like your bleeding heart has already won

You're so afraid that you are the only one
But you are the only one you know
Don't be afraid 'cause you're not the only one
You're not the only one I know

It's your cold day in the sun
Looks like your bleeding heart has already won
It's your cold day in the sun
Looks like your bleeding heart has already won

    General CommentThis song was written and sung by drummer Taylor Hawkins. Dave plays drums on this song.

    Taylor said this song is about an ex-girlfriend.

    General Commenty'know, Taylor's got a pretty good "classic rock"-ish type voice.

    this sounds a lot like an Eagles song from back in the day. I'm glad they brought Taylor to the front for a song, that's pretty cool. a whole new element brought to the front that makes for a sweet little song.

    General Commenti think the meaning's pretty straight forward, about breaking up and blamin each other (him, in this case)
    anyway it is a really feelgood song despite the lyrics and i agree with Childe, he does have a pretty roughish rocker type voice.

    General Commenti was thinkin that exact thing-it does sound like an eagles song. its a change of pace even for an all accoustic disc.

    in your honor is the best cd of the year so far

    General CommentMust be the consensus then - cause I was thinking that this reminds me of something off Desperado.

    Yay for classic rock :D
    Also Foo Fighters!

    General CommentIt's awesome to hear Taylor singing for once (although Dave Grohl's a legend and noone is better than him.) I never knew Taylor had such a good voice. I agree, In Your Honor is definitely the best album of the year - but it can never compare to the earlier foos albums like the colour and the shape - that one's the best.

    General CommentI cant wait until Taylor's CD comes out next month. He has such a great voice. You can hear some of his stuff at taylorhawkins.com.

    General CommentYeah this is definatly my favorite song on IYH Acoustic... I just felt that most of the acoustic cd was really bland and not very inspired, this definatly stood out

    The cold day in the sun is a reference to the break up someone here mentioned... The fact that she's in the sun is her being in the spot light, probably for ending the relationship, it's cold because the relationship has turned to ice and is unaffectionate.
