From the song Memory:

When the dawn comes
Tonight will be a memory too
And a new day will begin
Burnt out ends of smoky days
The stale court smell of morning
A street lamp dies
Another night is over
Another day is dawning

How do you understand that?

The still cold smell of morning here

The stale cold smell of morning here
