"Coldest Winter" as written by and Roland Orzabal....
On lonely nights I start to fade
(On lonely nights I start to fade)
Her love is a thousand miles away
(Her love is a thousand miles away)
Memories made in the coldest winter
Goodbye my friend will I ever love again

Memories made in the coldest winter

It's 4am and I can't sleep
(It's 4am and I can't sleep)
Her love is all that I can see
(Her love is all that I can see)
Memories made in the coldest winter
Goodbye my friend will I ever love again

Memories made in the coldest winter
Winter, winter

Goodbye my friend will I ever love again
Goodbye my friend will I ever love again
Goodbye my friend will I ever love again

If spring can take the snow away
(If spring can take the snow away)
Can it melt away all of our mistakes
(Can it melt away all of our mistakes)
Memories made in the coldest winter
Goodbye my friend I won't ever love again

Never again

    General Commenti love how he samples from Tears for Fears 1983 album Hurting with the song Memories Fade. Such a genius sample that would go unnoticed. Great song, and while its about his mom anyone can definitely use this for a break-up scenario. Absolutely awesome, fans of this song will love Streetlights.

    the cd is great btw, get it

    General CommentWow! Great song. kanye has said he just can't use his regular style to express how hes felt this last year and this is a great example of that. I really disagree with those who feel this album is a bad one bc of his new style. He captures complete human emotion with his voice. Do you really want him to rap about all the stuff hes gone through this last year? Coldest winter is about his mother as previously stated and its noted as the only one about her. Theres a great picture inside the album booklet. it should make the haters of the cd feel they have misjudged the way they feel about kanyes approach to the 808s and heartbreak.

    General Comment"On lonely nights, I start to fade. Her love's a thousand miles away."

    Right off the bat, this song hits hard and doesn't let go. Can't believe there's only three comments on one of the best songs he's ever made. The fact that he samples TfF - my second favorite band ever - doesn't hurt either. Really love this, really relate to it. Perfect climax for the album.

    Song MeaningThe song meaning isnt so simple. Its not about his mom nor his ex girlfriend, the girl running is supposed to be kanye. he's basically running from the illuminati (the hooded people). And when he jumps off the cliff, he's actually selling his soul to the devil. thats why you see hands in the background shaped like clouds, and the fact that his face turns evil in the end
