[Chorus:]
In the night, I hear 'em talk,
The coldest story ever told
Somewhere far along this road, he lost his soul to a woman so heartless...
How could you be so heartless?
Oh... How could you be so heartless?

[Verse:]
How could you be so, cold as the winter wind when it breeze, yo
Just remember that you talkin' to me though
You need to watch the way you talkin' to me, yo
I mean after all the things that we've been through
I mean after all the things we got into
Hey yo, I know of some things that you ain't told me
Hey yo, I did some things but that's the old me
And now you wanna get me back and you gon' show me
So you walk around like you don't know me
You got a new friend, while I got homies
But in the end it's still so lonely

[Chorus:]
In the night, I hear 'em talk,
The coldest story ever told
Somewhere far along this road, he lost his soul to a woman so heartless...
How could you be so heartless?
Oh... How could you be so heartless?

[Verse 2:]
How could you be so Dr. Evil, you bringin' out a side of me that I don't know...
I decided we weren't gon' speak so
Why we up 3 A. M. On the phone
Why does she be so mad at me fo'
Homie I don't know, she's hot and cold
I won't stop, won't mess my groove up
'Cause I already know how this thing go
You run and tell your friends that you're leaving me
They say that they don't see what you see in me
You wait a couple months then you gon' see
You'll never find nobody better than me

[Chorus:]
In the night, I hear 'em talk,
The coldest story ever told
Somewhere far along this road, he lost his soul to a woman so heartless...
How could you be so heartless?
Oh... How could you be so heartless?

[Verse 3:]
Talkin', talkin', talkin', talk
Baby let's just knock it off
They don't know what we been through
They don't know 'bout me and you
So I got something new to see
And you just gon' keep hatin' me
And we just gon' be enemies
I know you can't believe
I could just leave it wrong
And you can't make it right
I'm gon' take off tonight
Into the night....

[Chorus:]
In the night, I hear 'em talk,
The coldest story ever told
Somewhere far along this road, he lost his soul to a woman so heartless...
How could you be so heartless?
Oh... How could you be so heartless?

    He was a player in a relationship with his lady and as time went on, the lady had been hurt so much that she broke it off and went with other men and he is saying that he has a new relationship but his soul will always be with this women that he is going to forever be in love with. But he will "settle" for the other women and live his life wishing he had been a more faithful man to the women who has captured his soul.

    I believe this song is about how a guy does a girl wrong in the past, she leaves him. But is basically playing him. Because you know revenge is harsh. She tells all of her friends bad things and then one night it gets to him. Hes basically saying he's sorry and he "takes off into the night" which means he left it all behind. I don't know I could be way wrong but its just what I got out of it.
