(+Lyrics + meaning + translation) Music review: Outside by Lyta  

What is the song Outside by Lyta all about?

 First, what does “Cold” mean?

The well-known meaning of “Cold” is something that is of low temperature. 

However, in the context of this song, cold means something unfriendly, harsh, hostile, uncaring, and so on.

In this song “Outside” by Lyta, the artist talks about the difficulty and hostility one faces outside before becoming successful. Cold outside means it is not easy outside

According to him, in a bid to be successful in life, he left home and struggled before becoming successful. Lyta faced the outside world which was filled with hostility. He says only those outside can understand the experience.

He further implores God to send his blessings his way so things can be rosy for him and he can eat good food, wear good clothes and be generous to people.
