Dermot Kennedy - Heartless Lyrics




In the night, I hear 'em talk
Coldest story ever told
And somewhere far along this road
He lost his soul to a woman so heartless
Mmmh, could you be so heartless?
Mmmh, how could you be so heartless?

How could you be so
Cold as the winter wind when it breeze, yo?
Just remember that you talkin' to me though
Need to watch the way you talkin' to me, yo
I mean, after all the things that we been through
I mean, after all the things we got into
Ayo, I know of some things that you ain't told me
I know 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 – well, I got homies
But in the end, it's still so lonely

In the night, I hear 'em talk
Coldest story ever told
And somewhere far along this road
He lost his soul to a woman so heartless
Mmmh, could you be so heartless?
Mmmh, how could you be so heartless?

How could you be so Dr. Evil?
You're bringin' out a side of me that I don't know
I decided we wasn't gon' speak so
Why we up 3 a.m. on the phone?
Why do 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 leavin' me
They say that they don't see what you see in me
You wait a couple of months, then you gon' see
You'll never find nobody better than me

In the night, I hear 'em talk
Coldest story ever told
And somewhere far along this road
He lost his soul to a woman so heartless
Mmmh, how could you be so heartless?
Mmmh, how could you be so heartless?

Talk and talk and talk and talk
Baby, let's just knock it off
They don't know what we been through
They don't know 'bout me and you
I got somethin' new to see
You just gon' keep hatin' me
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...

I hear 'em talk
Coldest story ever told
And somewhere far along this road
He lost his soul to a woman so heartless
Mmmh, how could you be so heartless?
Mmmh, how could you be so heartless?

Mmmh, how could you be so heartless?
Mmmh, how could you be so heartless?

  9. Emlou S A

    His voice 😍👌

  10. OptimusGraph

    This man never fails to amaze me. What's a genre when you can do it all?

  11. TimDFullman

    I can relate to how he must feel! its as if there are stubborn loves that rather make you look bad to make them look good! aww! how could you be so heartless! its the trash talk i cant be doing with! whats the point! move on forgive it forget the hurt leave only lessons and love! and never hold hard feelings! feelings from the heart forgive easier than from the head! X

  12. Elexi Shipp

    I prefer the Frays version, but this is pretty good. Just slower.

  13. Dwayne Hendricks

    Love Island has the best songs! I have so many great covers from that show.

  14. imnotgay_butineedthemoney

    Love island, honestly im only watching for Marua's accent.

  15. Anestis David

  16. Meg Fernandez

    John Barrett

    Meg Fernandez smash you lady? Snapchat name lady?

  17. Yvonne Wooster

    This song reminds be of my ex boyfriend if you don’t mind imma tell u what it made me feel for him so I listened to this and I thought dam I really need to get contact of him and tell him how I feel and I don’t care about what are family thinks about are age diffrents (13me)(15him when we broke up he’s 16 now imma still 13 ma birthdays August 8th) so I made accounts on an messaging app we have together and I sent him requests. And the accounts all user names were like plstalkireallywouldliketotalktrevor
    Imissyoubabepls
    Iamsorryididotforusbutikitwwsamistake ect
    So I feel like I am the women in this song but I still love this song but it makes me feel guilty for leaving him 😔😘but now I have a girlfriend and me and her are really happy together I am extremely happy I choose to let this side of attraction for girls out i feels amazing and if anyone is reading this that is in a relationship and it just don’t feel right try dating someone the same gender as you or the opposite gender whatever your not in the relationship you don’t feel comfortable in what I am trying to say is if you feel like something isn’t right date the opposite type of person they are 😘



    Alice my gfs thoughts:
    Dear young readers,you can be who you are and who you wanna be just be carefully for who you choose to be with and how you treat them or how they treat you and it is OK to have feelings for girls or boys trans gays lesbians pansexuals ect. Just remember no body can Judge you harder than you can judge your self so pls have a good day 😍😉

  41. Julien Wyatt

    Seems this song was written for Dermot. I actually don't dislike the Kanye version at all, this is more "meaningful" for me though and tells a more meaningful story, despite the lyrics being no different.

    Shane Reich

    The fray did a version better than kanye's first

    Jay Kay

    Shane Reich 100% agree

    LOVE STORY TIME (true story):

    When i was 15 years old. me and my family was on a trip to italy in a camper.
    After about two hours, we stopped at a gas station to refuel and get some drinks.
    When i came out of the store i noticed this girl on the backseat of a car, i was blown away by her beauty. "she's way out of my league" i thought.
    i started walking back to our car and i just couldnt get my eyes off her. her farther was finishing up refueling was getting ready to get into the car, she then turned her head and looked out.
    She noticed me and our eyes met. i could feel how we just stared deep into eachother untill their car started moving. she kept trying to look when they drove off. i had experienced love for a girl for the first time in my life.
    I started to feel really really sad, because what i though i felt, her beautiful eyes and how she looked was already just a memory.

    after 12 days we headed back home. we stopped at a gas station right next to where we lived. i stared out the windows just looking at cars that drove by. suddently my view was blocked by a car that parked on the opposite site of the pump. and there she was. she was right there. i couldn't believe it. i started waving my hand like crazy and i cought her attention, she just began to look very shy and waved back with a cute smile. i quickly took my chance a jumped out of the camper and ran over to got her to roll down the window and i asked for her msn messenger so we could write (this was popular back then when facebookw wasnt born yet) AND I GOT IT!

    The following days we wrote a lot. turned out she lived in a neightbouring town. i could tell that we both were into eachother. we wrote and talked on the phone for hours upon hours every day for the following two weeks. i was invited to this big 16 years birthday party and guess who was also going to be there. yes, she was.
    We drank and talked the evening and night away and at times we just sat and stared into eachothers eyes. occationally we seperated to talk to the others at the party. but we kept coming back to that couch in the corner and just talking and having fun.
    We came to the end of the night. it was early morning and we had to go home. we seperated with a long heartwarming hug and wished eachother a good night.
    the next day i didnt hear from her, she didnt answer me either on the phone or on msn even though she was online.

    The day after she finally called me. asked if i wanted to meet up at my place.
    of cause i would. when she came over we went to my room. i had never had a girl in my room before. i was nervous as hell.
    She looked deep into my eyes and said " you.. i can stop thinking about you" and out of no where she kissed me. geeky neardy me had never kissed a girl before or anything. and as she had already had 2 boyfriends. i was afraid every nanosecond of that kiss. i felt as if i was flying. the butterflies in my stomarch was almost hurting. and from that moment we were a couple.

    7 years went by and our relationship was very good we bought an appartment together. we had out bumbs along the ride like everybody else. but overall we had a healthy relationship.
    The day came when a friend had arranged a night out for the guys because one of our friends was getting merried. we went and had a blast. i talked to a few guys and girls like i always do. not flirting or anything, just having a good time with people i met.
    it was a good night and i ended up sleeping at a friends place because i was too tired to take the bus home.

    The following days she began to be increasingly sad and cold and not least of all very angry all the time. i didnt know what was wrong. and when i came home from work one day. i found a letter on the kitchen table, with a picture of me and her. the letter said " I loved you like i could never imagine was possible, how could you ? "
    I tried calling her, nothing. i drove around to our friends to see if she was there and i couldnt find her. suddently i get a call from her.
    Appearantly one of the girls i talked to when i was out with the guys had told the love of my life a big fat lie. i found out that the girl i talked to at the bar was appearantly the sister of a guy i knew had a huge crush on my girlfriend. and appearantly her words ment more than mine.
    She left me that day. and ignored me from that moment.

    i became distant to my friends, locked myself up in my own appartment. for 2 and a half year. i didnt talk to anyone outside work. and when at work it was nothing more than work related chatter.

    then suddently one day at the mall. i saw her. she stood right there at outside the jewelry store with a man and a stroller. she looked around and noticed me, then continued to reach down into the stroller, pick up a baby and very obviously kiss the baby while looking at me, when reaching for the mans shoulder. he turned his head. and it was the guy whos sister had lied about i had cheated with her. he game me an evil smile and my world broke down.
    i sank down into a deep depression.

    That was 3 years ago. and i've gotten much better.
    i'm back in a good paying job and a few new friends. everything is great again. although im single now. and she left a scar that will never heal.

    I've never paid attention to the original kanye west version of this song.
    but when i heard this version. i just couldn't stop thinking about her.

    Im sharing this because of the emotions i get when i hear this song.

    Thank you for reading!
