About the song
The title suggested a song immediately. It took a while to get the story just right -- to keep the tone a little light at the beginning and not reveal what's really going on until the bridge.

AJ Spinella loved the lyric, really responded to it, and put together this demo at Musicians' Collaboration. The musicians all felt it "struck a chord" with them, identifying with the characters.

Guitar/Vocals: Anthony J. Spinella
Orchestration (piano, harp, etc.): Jay Schankman
Bass: Preston Miller
Drums: Jerry Langenfeld
Final Mix: David Timson
Lyrics
OUT IN THE COLD
Lyrics Copyright 2006 by Z. Mulls

(v1)

She hasn�t come home yet
The girls and I play in the snow
Temperature in the twenties
Like it was a December ago

Throwing snowballs and shrieking
Raising holy hell
We hardly notice
How far the mercury fell

(chorus)

Cause Out in the Cold
It�s warm
The temperature�s barely felt
Out in the cold
It�s warm
Enough that a heart can melt
When you�re with the ones you love
You can weather any storm
It�s warm
Out in the cold

(v2)

Amy�s halfway through fifth grade
Always got her face in a book
Kate is sure she�ll find dinosaur bones
If she finds the right place to look

They grab my hat and go running
Playing a game
Putting it on the snowman
And calling him by my name

(repeat chorus)

Cause Out in the Cold
It�s warm
The temperature�s barely felt
Out in the cold
It�s warm
Enough that a heart can melt
When you�re with the ones you love
You can weather any storm
It�s warm
Out in the cold



(bridge)

She comes home and apologizes for being late
Tells the girls to go inside and walks me to the gate
All of the tensions come flooding back
All the suspicions, and the lines of attack

(v3)

We review some arrangements
I leave before starting a spat
The snowman waves in the rearview
Standing guard with my hat

Every year they get older
New line are crossed
I wait out the winter
Fighting against the frost

(new chorus)

Out in the cold
Again
Surrendering by degrees
Out in the cold
Again
Enough that a heart can freeze
When you miss the ones you love
Every hour feels like ten
Again
Out in the cold
