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?

How could you be so
Cold as the winter wind when it breeze yo
Just remember that you talking to me tho'
You need to watch the way you talking to me no
I mean after all the things that we been through
I mean after all the things we got into
And yo I know some things that you ain't told me
And yo I did some things but that's the old me
And now you wanna give me back
And You gon' show me
So you walk around like you don't me
You got a new friend
Well I got homeys
But at the end it's still so lonely

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?

How could you be so Dr. Evil
You're bringing out a side of
Me that I don't know,
I decided we weren't gonna speak so why are up 3 a.m. on the phone,
Why does she be so mad at me for, homey I don't know she's hot and cold,
I won't stop; I won't mess my groove up
Cause I already know how this thing goes,

You run and tell you're friends that you're leavin' me,
They say that they don't see what you see in me,
You wait a couple months then you gone' see,
You'll never find nobody better than me

Coz' 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?
How could you be so heartless, oh

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...
Into the night

Cause 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... yeah

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 be so heartless
Oh, how could be so heartless
How could be so...
So heartless... oh...
How could you be so heartless

    I think that when he preformed this song on Idol people realized that he's really had a chance at winning and I think that Kris's version is better than Kanye's. Great job Kris! I'm glad you won!
    I totally agree with kitty324!
