Word Alive, The - Heartless Lyrics

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?
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 yo
You need to watch the way you talking to me you know
I mean after all the things that we been through
I mean after all the things we got into
And yo I know of some things that you ain't told me
And 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
Well I got homies
But in 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?
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 we up 3 a.m. on the phone
Why does she be so mad at me for,
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 goes,
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 months then you gon' see,
You'll never find nobody better than me

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?
How could you be so heartless?

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...

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?
How could you be so heartless?

    Kayne did it so wrong. And it was his song too lol

  14. Elias Morales


    Austin Machovec



    Elias Morales sorry to tell you bud but this is not emo

  15. orange juice

    kanyes probably crying over how hard these guys are ruining his art

    Cuervo 13

    I think they should mourn for sing that crap :D

    gabriel diaz

    +Doge does stuff Kanye is a trash artist and should praise someone for taking his lyrics and doing something good with them

    Vinn Regi

    Kanye and art on the same sentence. My god the heresy...

    Derrick Jee

    this is just as good as The Fray's beautiful Heartless cover, Kanye's original wasn't very good imo, but i'm glad we have these songs because of it.

    Itsyagirl Jordan

    u mean make it better

  16. andre aquino

    Kay Cee

    @Brendan May thank you and happy 4 of july

    Brendan May

    Same to you!

    It’s strange they fear Death

    Kelly Minarik holy fuck man, take a chill pill, you criticize him/her for an already bullshit reason and then exhibit the same qualities you just berated him/her for in a much bigger amount...what a fucking douche


    It’s metalcore or post-hardcore

    Talon Mckay

    I assume you're in grade 11 now judging from that comment you made 3 years ago. Still enjoy metal?

  21. shanobian

    Literally ripped off call us forgottens version
    Witch is a million times better and brutal

    Chris Watts

    Nice profile pic, Trunks is the shit... actually my favorite Dbz character,, Future Trucks technically of course.. but you are wrong about this song, it is the most beautifullestness ever


    @CHRISonTOPofHER WaTtS listen to the cuf one and prepared to be blown away


    @shanobian I'm sorry, but fuck no. I know it's more loyal to the original, but the auto tune ruined their version, but hey that's just my opinion. This one's better to me.

    yeah son

    Funny thing, this was made before that cover...


    +yeah son actually no it wasn't

  22. Owowkiller

    i didnt know this was even a kanye west song. i thought it was twa's song. ;-;

  23. Clay Dude

    Well this version is one of my favorite songs

  24. Clay Dude

    This is one of my favorite songs.

  25. John Smith

    shitest remix i've ever heared

    Bee :

    Your comment is shit.... Just saying.

    Luke McCready

    Shitest? Bruh, learn grammar, at least if you're going to insult post hardcore music do it with some intelligence. Shittiest**


    @Luke McCready Bruh, learn that "Bruh" is not a real word, and that its "Bro" or "Brother". Second, If you're going to be a grammar nazi, then go work for Encyclopedia Britannica, otherwise get out of my face. Finally, Nobody mentioned the slur "Shitest", as you so proclaim. Its simple yet elementary reading skills. Someone who expects to correct everyone else, does not even have the ability to read, And with that I hereby bid you good morrow'.

    Bangtan Bitch

    @4242JCDT Excuse me, but, if you do look at the first comment that started this all, you would be able to clearly see that it does clearly say "shitest" 


    @Sora Anayic Well then I stand corrected. I did not realize that Luke McCreedy did not +reply to me.

  26. Gothic Chick

    Love this version!!!!!!! Much better than the original I think

  27. Arianna Thompson

    This shit is amazing

  28. MetalSynthLegend

    Heartless bitch.

  29. tobias rivera

    better then the original lol but she was indeed heartless

  30. dvzhu

    lol @ people who scream "yo"

  31. Dustin Swain


  32. WarMachineDown

    Fish Dicks!

  33. João de Melo

    Luke Holland

  34. Natalie laurel

    Which you used to look it up..Am I correct..?

  35. Sahil D.

    He didn't correct him on his spelling, dumbass.

  36. Phillip Massie

    this version is okay but I like the fray's version best it has more feeling for what the song is IMO

  37. Elizabeth Mullins

    Took a crappy song and turned it into pure gold.

    Virginia Gagnon

    Elizabeth Mullins have you heard ISMFOF version of rank that? It's awesome 👏🏻

    Sai Teja_

    Exactly opposite actually

  38. JhnnyOpPAI

    what kind a warning is that?

  39. Dustin Reed

    Just goes to prove that a real band that has talent can take a song from garbage talent such as Kayne and make it sick

  40. Austin Henderson

    True they should of called the album metal goes mainstream

  41. chris stokes

    consider your self spared!

  42. hungdaddy13inch

    ive never heard kanye's version.

  43. tristanschlegel

    you do know that "noob" is short for noobice, which is slang for novice right? if you are ever confused about what a word means, there's a book called a dictionary, it tells you the deffiniton to a word.

  44. OneADayFoody

    This version is pretty Diesel.

  45. Shane McGrew

    They just make bad music better. Lol so true

  46. Josiah Pierce

    Man when i turn this on in the gym my mind goes insane, honestly TWA, WCAR are the best bands ever and best to workout to!!

  47. Glen Dekker

    Came on my pandora station, the three band seeds were Dark Tranquility, In Flames, and Trivium

  48. Ken Sayers

    When I was younger I used to listen to Silverstein and other early-mid 2000s post-hardcore bands but now they all are just clones of the one that came before. It's really sad this genre had potential.

  49. FactFollow

    What station do you listen to?

  50. Courtney Woodall

    This is beautiful.

  51. Flux

    fuck kanye west tht asshole is a faggggg

  52. ilostmyhair

    heard kanye west made a cover of this in pop goes punk

  53. Ryan Saseung

    You simply cannot fuck kanye west...
    I love this word alive cover though.

  54. Ryan Sheffield

    word alive

  55. Psychotic Crayon

    This song makes me want to turn into a bald eagle and fly into the sunset with Chuck Norris and Bruce Willis on my back. It's that awesome.

  56. imjoexd

    No. I just like correcting dumb kids, so they hopefully learn from their mistakes.

  57. GGhamma5

    did anyone ask you?

  58. Joey Emanuele

    Yeah, CTW is probably my favourite music video. I love how Affiance don't take themselves seriously and fuck around in that video :)

  59. imjoexd




  60. Joey Emanuele

    I like to see the band's regurgitation of the original lyrics as mockery, that might make you feel better.

  61. TheD4rkSoul

    Yea thanks Kanye for writing the lyrics for The word alive good job :}

  62. DexterISweird

    I do prefer rap/hip-hop over this type of music. But this is WAY better than the original.

  68. Amy Hind

    Didn't actually read it but thanks it's a skill of mine ;)

  69. nathalie alvarado

    Is this their song, or is it a cover?? But still, loved it!

  70. John Smith

    He has to. He had to approve it otherwise kanye could sue.

  71. rain demson

    i wonder if Kanye has seen this....lol

  72. Amy Hind

    kanye west can go fuck himself when it comes to this song because we all know this is WAY better
