Story behind 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
