In the night I hear them talk
The coldest story ever told

from Kanye West – Heartless Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

These lines represent the voices in Kanye’s head when he goes to sleep at night. He tells this in VH1’s Storytellers series.

In these first few lines, Kanye follows very subtly the entonation for the first couple of lines of Stevie Wonder’s “Part Time Lover”.
