About Cold Case Love

"Cold Case Love" is a song recorded by Barbadian singer Rihanna for her fourth studio album, Rated R (2009). It was written and produced by The Y's (Justin Timberlake, Robin Tadross and James Fauntleroy II). Following Chris Brown's assault on Rihanna, she started working on the sound of her new album. Timberlake who co-wrote "Cold Case Love" labeled the sound of Rihanna's new project as a step forward for the singer. In February 2010, Rihanna admitted that the song's lyrics are about her complicated relationship with Brown. An R&B song, "Cold Case Love" has an instrumentation infused with a simple piano pattern, thumping bassline, violin and viola strings and electric guitar licks. Lyrically, it is a "melancholic and mature farewell" to a failed relationship. "Cold Case Love" received acclaim from contemporary music critics who labeled the song as a highlight on Rated R and additionally praised Rihanna's vocals. The singer performed the song on her 2013 worldwide concert tour, Diamonds World Tour, in a medley with "Take a Bow" and "Hate That I Love You".

On my roof
Dark and I'm burning a rose
I don't need proof
I'm torn apart and you know
What you did to me was a crime
Cold case love
And I let you reach me one more time
But that's enough uh

Your love was breaking the law, but I needed a witness (oh oh)
So pick me up when it's over, it don't make any difference (oh oh)
Will it ever be solved?
Or am I taking the fall?
Truth was there all along, tell me how did we miss it

We opened up a cold case love
And it got the best of us
And now prints, pictures and white outlines
Are all that's left at the scene of a crime of a cold case love (oh oh)

Should've investigated
But love blinded eyes couldn't see, no
And then I tried to cage it
But your love ain't the kind that you can keep
Release me now 'cause I did my time
Of this cold case love
My heart's no longer cold and confined
I've had enough oh oh

Your love was breaking the law, but I needed a witness (oh oh)
So pick me up when it's over, it don't make any difference (oh oh)
Will it ever be solved?
Or am I taking the fall? (Ooh no)
Truth was there all along, tell me how did we miss it
We opened up a cold case love
And it got the best of us
And now prints, pictures and white outlines
Are all that's left at the scene of a crime
Of a cold case love oh oh

We lost our way
Took this too far
Now I'll never find the pieces of my heart
We've lost enough
Looking for a truth
That was here all along

Cold case love
And it got the best of us
And now prints, pictures and white outlines
Are all that's left at the scene of a crime
Of a cold case love

We opened up a cold case love
And it got the best of us
And now prints, pictures and white outlines
Are all that's left at the scene of a crime
Of a cold case love, love
