B i o g r a p h y
 (by MacKenzie Wilson)

Coldplay never intended to become England's favorite rock & roll sons when their signature rock melodies ruled the charts throughout 2000. The Brit-rock quartet ó composed of Chris Martin (vocals/piano), Jon Buckland (guitar), Will Champion (drums), and Guy Berryman (bass) ó yearned to mess around a bit, plucking their own acoustics for fun while attending the University College of London. All had been playing instruments since their early teens and had been influenced by the likes of Bob Dylan, the Stone Roses, Neil Young, and My Bloody Valentine. They never imagined taking reign of the U.K.'s ever-changing rock scene. Each member had come from solid households of working-class parents that encouraged music to be played. Martin, the eldest of five, began playing the piano as a young child. He started playing in bands around age 15 and sought solace in the words of Tom Waits. Buckland, on the other hand, was into the heavy guitar work of Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix and was playing guitar by age 11. Scotland native Berryman was into funk instead of indie rock, therefore leaving him to play bass. The multi-instrumentalist, Champion, didn't plan to be a drummer until he joined Coldplay. He favored playing guitar, bass, and the tin whistle, but caught on to playing percussion when the band became official. Coldplay was heart-rending like Travis, passionate like Jeff Buckley, and as fresh as Oasis when they first burst onto the scene, so it was ideal for the press and public to praise them. They played their first gig at a festival for unsigned bands in Manchester, and The Safety EP was issued shortly thereafter. The Brothers and Sisters EP was issued by Fierce Panda and released a year later. Both releases saw only 500 pressings. Their sweet melodies and swooning lyrics landed Coldplay a U.K. deal with Parlophone in April 1999, and the limited-edition five-track, The Blue Room EP, followed that fall. With endearing nods from the media, the dream pop foursome were hailed as the next Travis thanks to their simplistic acoustics and charming personas. Two more EPs, Shiver and Yellow, arrived in spring 2000.

Their full-length debut Parachutes, which earned the band a Mercury Music Prize nomination, was released in the U.K. In November 2000, Parachutes saw a U.S. release with Nettwerk; a month later, "Yellow" was chosen as the theme song for all promo spots for ABC. The well-received hype surrounding the band continued throughout 2001 as well, taking on three Brit Awards nominations and a sold-out ten-date tour of the U.S. in February. Rumors of a split consumed most of the U.S. tour. Martin frequently battled nasty colds and voice exhaustion, which led Coldplay to cancel a series of American dates and scrap a European tour. With all gossip aside, Coldplay resumed playing in summer 2001 and earned additional success with second single "Trouble." By fall, they headed into the studio for a second album. Rumor had it that it might be Coldplay's last album, for the band felt they might not capture such brilliance again. A Rush of Blood to the Head was released in August 2002. The CD/DVD package Live 2003 was issued in fall of that year. This concert album captured the band's show at the Horden Pavilion in Sydney, Australia, and highlighted Coldplay's monumental success worldwide with A Rush of Blood to the Head. They were bonafide pop stars. Martin, specifically, earned a higher notch on the celebrity scale by marrying actress Gwyneth Paltrow in December 2003. Paltrow gave birth to the couple's first daughter, Apple Blythe Alison Martin, the following April. Fatherhood didn't stop Martin from working, for Coldplay began recording material for a third album within weeks. Previously recorded material with long-time producer Ken Nelson was scrapped early on while Danton Supple (Morrissey, the Cure) joined Coldplay to complete the recording of X&Y. "Speed of Sound" marked the band's first single from their long-awaited third effort in spring 2005; the album followed in June.

Donít Panic

Bones, sinking like stones,
All that we fought for,
Homes, places we've grown,
All of us are done for.

And we live in a beautiful world,
Yeah we do, yeah we do,
We live in a beautiful world,

Bones, sinking like stones,
All that we fought for,
And homes, places we've grown,
All of us are done for.

And we live in a beautiful world,
Yeah we do, yeah we do,
We live in a beautiful world.

Here we go, here we go

And we live in a beautiful world,
Yeah we do, yeah we do,
We live in a beautiful world.

 Oh, all that I know,
There's nothing here to run from,
'Cause yeah everybody here's got somebody to lean on.

*** Thanx a lot to Kersal who updated this one ***

Shiver

So I look in your direction
But you pay me no attention do you
I know you don't listen to me
'Cause you say you see straight through me don't you

But on and on, from the moment I wake
'Till the moment I sleep
I'll be there by your side
Just you try and stop me
I'll be waiting in line
Just to see if you care

Did you want me to change
Well I changed for good
And I want you to know
That you'll always get your way
I wanted to say

Don't you shiver
Shiver
Sing it loud and clear
I'll always be waiting for you

So you know how much I need you
But you never even see me do you
And is this my final chance of getting you

But on and on, from the moment I wake
'Till the moment I sleep
I'll be there by your side
Just you try and stop me
I'll be waiting in line
Just to see if you care

Did you want me to change
Well I changed for good
And I want you to know
That you'll always get your way
I wanted to say

Don't you shiver
Don't you shiver
Sing it loud and clear
I'll always be waiting for you

Yeah I'll always be waiting for you
Yeah I'll always be waiting for you
Yeah I'll always be waiting for you
For you
I will always be waiting

And it's you I see
But you don't see me
And it's you I hear
So loud and clear
I sing it loud and clear
And I'll always be waiting for you

So I look in your direction
But you pay me no attention
And you know how much I need you
But you never even see me

*** Thanx a lot to Amar & Raeford & Jayne who corrected some mistakes ***

Spies

I awake to find no peace of mind
I said, how do you live as a fugitive
Down here where I cannot see so clear
I said, what do I know
Show me the right way to go

And the spies came out of the water
But you're feeling so bad 'cause you know
That the spies hide out in every corner
But you can't touch them no
'Cause they're all spies

They're all spies

I awake to see that no one is free
We're all fugitives
Look at the way we live
Down here, I cannot sleep from fear, no
I said, which way do I turn
Oh, I forget everything I learn

That the spies came out of the water
But you're feeling so bad cause you know
Though spies hide out in every corner
But you can't touch them, no
'Cause they're all spies

They're all spies

And if we don't hide here
They're going to find us
If we don't hide now
They're gonna catch us where we sleep
And if we don't hide here
They're gonna find us

But the spies came out of the water
But you're feeling so good cause you know
Though spies hide out in every corner
That they can't touch you, no
'Cause they're just spies

They're just spies
They're just spies
They're just spies
They're just spies

Yellow

Look at the stars,
Look how they shine for you,
And everything you do,
Yeah, they were all yellow.

I came along,
I wrote a song for you,
And all the things you do,
And it was called "Yellow."

 So then I took my turn,
Oh what a thing to have done,
And it was all "Yellow."

Your skin
Oh yeah, your skin and bones,
Turn into something beautiful,
You know, you know I love you so,
You know I love you so.

I swam across,
I jumped across for you,
Oh what a thing to do.

 Cos you were all "Yellow,"
I drew a line,
I drew a line for you,
Oh what a thing to do,
And it was all "Yellow."

 Your skin,
Oh yeah your skin and bones,
Turn into something beautiful,
And you know
For you I'd bleed myself dry
For you I'd bleed myself dry

It's true, look how they shine for you,
Look how they shine for you,
Look how they shine for, 
Look how they shine for you,
Look how they shine for you,
Look how they shine.

Look at the stars,
Look how they shine for you,
And all the things that you do.

Trouble

Oh no, I see,
A spider web is tangled up with me,
And I lost my head,
The thought of all the stupid things I said,
Oh no what's this?
A spider web, and I'm caught in the middle,
So I turned to run,
The thought of all the stupid things I've done,

I never meant to cause you trouble,
And I never meant to do you wrong,
And I, well if I ever caused you trouble,
Oh no, I never meant to do you harm.

Oh no I see,
A spider web and it's me in the middle,
So I twist and turn,
But here I am in my little bubble,

Singing, I never meant to cause you trouble,
I never meant to do you wrong,
And I, well if I ever caused you trouble,
Oh no, I never meant to do you harm.

They spun a web for me,
They spun a web for me,
They spun a web for me.

High Speed

Can anybody fly this thing?
Before my head explodes,
Or my head starts to ring.

Weíve been living life inside a bubble,
Weíve been living life inside a bubble.

Confidence in you,
Is confidence in me,
Is confidence in high speed.

Can anybody stop this thing?
Before my head explodes,
Or my head starts to ring.

Weíve been living life inside a bubble,
Weíve been living life inside a bubble.

  Confidence in you,
Is confidence in me,
Is confidence in high speed.

  In high speed,
High speed.

And high speed you on
High speed you on
High speed you on
High speed you on

We Never Change

I want to live life, and never be cruel
I wanna live life, and be good to you

And I wanna fly
I'll never come down
And live my life
And have friends around

We never change do we no, no
We never learn do we
So I wanna live, in a wooden house
I wanna live life, and always be true
I wanna live life, and be good to you

And I wanna fly
But never come down
And live my life
And have friends around

We never change do we
We never learn do we
So I wanna live in a wooden house
And making more friends would be easy

Oh, and I don't have a soul to save
Yes and I sin every single day
We never change do we
We never learn do we

So I want to live in a wooden house
Where making more friends would be easy
I wanna live where the sun comes out

God Put A Smile Upon Your Face

Where do we go, nobody knows
I've got to say I'm on my way down
God give me style and give me grace
God put a smile upon my face

Where do we go to draw the line
I've got to say I wasted all your time
Oh honey honey
Where do I go to fall from grace
God put a smile upon your face yeah

And ah, when you work it out I'm worse than you
Yeah, when you work it out I wanted to
And ah, when you work out where to draw the line
Your guess is as good as mine

Where do we go, nobody knows
Don't ever say you're on your way down when
God gave you style and gave you grace,
And put a smile upon your face oh yeah

And ah, when you work it out I'm worse than you
Yeah, when you work it out I want it to
And ah, when you work out where to draw the line
Your guess is as good as mine.

As good as mine, as good as mine,
As good as mine, as good as mine

The Scientist

Come up to meet you, tell you I'm sorry
You don't know how lovely you are

I had to find you
Tell you I need you
Tell you I set you apart

Tell me your secrets
And ask me your questions
Oh let's go back to the start

Running in circles
Coming up tails
Heads on a silence apart

Nobody said it was easy
It's such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard

Oh take me back to the start

I was just guessing
At numbers and figures
Pulling your puzzles apart

Questions of science
Science and progress
Do not speak as loud as my heart

Tell me you love me
Come back and haunt me
Oh and I rush to the start

Running in circles
Chasing our tails
Coming back as we are

Nobody said it was easy
Oh it's such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be so hard

I'm going back to the start

*** Thanx a lot to TheBestCow & Hugo & Corinne who corrected a mistake ***

Clocks

The lights go out and I can't be saved
Tides that I tried to swim against
Have brought me down upon my knees
Oh I beg, I beg and plead singing

Come out of things unsaid
Shoot an apple off my head and a
Trouble that cant be named
A tiger's waiting to be tamed singing

You are
You are

Confusion never stops
Closing walls and ticking clocks
Gonna come back and take you home
I could not stop that you now know singing

Come out upon my seas,
Cursed missed opportunities
Am I a part of the cure
Or am I part of the disease, singing

You are, you are, you are
You are, you are, you are

And nothing else compares
And nothing else compares
And nothing else compares

You are
You are

Home, home where I wanted to go
Home, home where I wanted to go
Home, home where I wanted to go
Home, home where I wanted to go

Daylight

To my surprise
And my delight
I saw a sunrise
I saw a sunlight.

I am nothing
In the dark
And the clouds burst
To show the daylight

Oooh and the sun will shine
Yeah on this heart of mine
Ooooh and I realise
Who cannot live without
Ooooh come apart without it

On a hilltop
On a sky-rise
Like a firstborn
Child

And at full tilt
And in full flight
Defeat darkness
Breaking daylight

Oooh and the sun will shine
Yeah on this heart of mine
Ooooh and I realise
Who cannot live without
Ooooh and come apart without
Daylight

Slowly breaking through the daylight X10

Green Eyes

Honey you are a rock
Upon which I stand
And I come here to talk
I hope you understand

The green eyes
Yeah the spotlight
Shines upon you

And how could
Anybody
Deny you

I came here with a load
And it feels so much lighter
Now I met you

Honey you should know
That I could never go on
Without you

Green eyes

Honey you are the sea
Upon which I float
And I came here to talk
I think you should know

That green eyes
You're the one that I wanted to find
And anyone who tried to deny you,
Must be out of their mind

Because I came here with a load
And it feels so much lighter since I met you

And honey you should know,
That I could never go on
Without you

Green eyes, green eyes, ohohoh...

Honey you are a rock
Upon which I stand.

A Warning Sign

A warning sign
I missed the good part then I realised
I started looking and the bubble burst
I started looking for excuses

Come on in
I've got to tell you what a state I'm in
I've got to tell you in my loudest tones
That I started looking for a warning sign

When the truth is
I miss you
Yeah the truth is
That I miss you so.

A warning sign
You came back to haunt me and I realised
That you were an island and I passed you by
When you were an island to discover

Come on in
I've got to tell you what a state I'm in
I've got to tell you in my loudest tones
That I started looking for a warning sign

When the truth is
I miss you
Yeah the truth is
That I miss you so

And I'm tired
I should not have let you go

So I crawl back into your open arms
Yes I crawl back into your open arms
And I crawl back into your open arms
Yes I crawl back into your open arms

A Whisper

A whisper, a whisper, a whisper, a whisper
A whisper, a whisper, a whisper, a whisper

I hear the sound of the ticking of clocks
Who remembers your face
Who remember you when you are gone

I hear the sound of the ticking of clocks
Come back and look for me, look for me
When I am lost

Just a whisper, a whisper, a whisper, a whisper
Just a whisper, a whisper, a whisper, a whisper

Night turns to day
And I still have these questions
Bridges will break
Should I go forwards or backwards.
Night turns to day,
And I still get no answers

Just a whisper, a whisper, a whisper, a whisper
Just a whisper, a whisper, a whisper, a whisper

I hear the sound of the ticking of clocks
Who remember your face
Who remembers you when you are gone

I hear the sound of the ticking of clocks
Come back and look for me, look for me
When I am lost

Just a whisper, a whisper, a whisper, a whisper
Just a whisper, a whisper, a whisper, a whisper

A Rush Of Blood To The Head

He said I'm gonna buy this place and burn it down
I'm gonna put it six feet underground
He said "I'm gonna buy this place and watch it fall
Stand here beside me baby in the crumbling walls

Oh I'm gonna buy this place and start a fire
Stand here until I fill all your heart's desires
Because I'm gonna buy this place and see it burn
Do back the things it did to you in return

Ah ah ah, ah ah ah...

He said I'm gonna buy a gun and start a war
If you can tell me something worth fighting for
Oh and I'm gonna buy this place that's what I said
Blame it upon a rush of blood to the head

Honey
All the movements you're starting to make
See me crumble and fall on my face
And I know the mistakes that I made
See it all disappear without a trace.
And they call as they beckon you on
They said start as you mean to go on
Start as you mean to go on

He said "I'm gonna buy this place and see it go
Stand here beside my baby, watch the orange glow
Some will laugh and some just sit and cry
But you just sit down there and you wonder why

So I'm gonna buy a gun and start a war
If you can tell me something worth fighting for
And I'm gonna buy this place that's what I said
Blame it upon a rush of blood to the head
Oh to the head

Honey
All the movements you're starting to make
See me crumble and fall on my face
And I know the mistakes that I made
See it all disappear without a trace.
And they call as they beckon you on
They said start as you mean to go on
As you mean to go on, as you mean to go on

So meet me by the bridge,
Oh meet me by the lane
When am I going to see
That pretty face again

Meet me on the road
Meet me where I said
Blame it all upon
A rush of blood to the head

Amsterdam

Come on, oh my star is fading
And I swerve out of control
If I, if I'd only waited
I'd not be stuck here in this hole.

Come here, oh my star is fading
And I swerve out of control
And I swear I waited and waited,
I've got to get out of this hole

But time is on your side
It's on your side now
Not pushing you down and all around
It's no cause for concern

Come on, oh my star is fading
And I see no chance of release
I know I'm dead on the surface
But I'm screaming underneath

And time is on your side
It's on your side now
Not pushing you down and all around
It's no cause for concern

Stuck on the end of this ball and chain
And I'm on my way back down again
Stood on a bridge, tied to a noose
Sick to the stomach
You can say what you mean
But it won't change a thing
I'm sick of the secrets

Stood on the edge
Tied to a noose
You came along
And you cut me loose

You came along
And you cut me loose
You came along
And you cut me loose

X & Y

Square one

Youíre in control
Is there anywhere you want to go
Youíre in control
Is there anything you want to know
The futureís for discovering
The space in which we're travelling

From the top of the first page
To the end of the last day
From the start in your own way
You just want
Somebody listening to what you say
It doesnít matter who you are

Under the surface trying to break through
Deciphering the codes in you
I need a compass, draw me a map
Iím on the top, I canít get back

The first line of the first page
To the end of the last place
You were looking
From the start in your own way
You just want
Somebody listening to what you say
It doesnít matter who you are

You just want somebody listening to what you say
You just want somebody listening to what you say
It doesnít matter who you are
It doesnít matter who you are

Is there anybody out there who
Is lost and hurt and lonely too
Are they bleeding all your colors into one
And if you come undone
As if youíd been run through
Some catapult it fired you
You wonder if your chance will ever come
Or if youíre stuck in square one

What if

What if there was no light
Nothing wrong, nothing right
What if there was no time
And no reason or rhyme
What if you should decide
That you donít want me there by your side
That you donít want me there in your life

What if I got it wrong
And no poem or song
Could put right what I got wrong
Or make you feel I belong
What if you should decide
That you donít want me there by your side
That you donít want me there in your life

Oooh, thatís right
Letís take a breath, jump over the side
Oooh, thatís right
How can you know it if you donít even try
Oooh, thatís right

Every step that you take
Could be your biggest mistake
It could bend or it could break
But thatís the risk that you take
What if you should decide
That you donít want me there in your life
That you donít want me there by your side

Ooh, thatís right
Letís take a breath, jump over the side
Ooh, thatís right
How can you know it when you donít even try
Ooh, thatís right

Ooh, thatís right
Letís take a breath, jump over the side
Ooh, thatís right
You know the darkness always turns into light
Ooh, thatís right

White shadows

When I was a young boy I tried to listen
And I want to feel like that
Little white shadows blink and miss them
Part of a system, I am

If you ever feel like something's missing
Things you never understand
Little white shadows sparkle and glisten
Part of a system, a plan

All this noise iím waking up
All this space iím taking up
All the sound is breaking up
Oh oh oh oh...

Maybe you'll get what you wanted
Maybe you'll stumble upon it
Everything you ever wanted
In a permanent state
Maybe you'll know when you've seen it
Maybe if you say it youíll mean it
And when you find it you'll keep it
In a permanent state
A permanent state

When I was a young boy I tried to listen
Donít you want to feel like that
Youíre part of the human race
All of the stars in the outer space
Part of a system, a plan

All this noise iím waking up
All the space iím taking up
I cannot hear you're breaking up
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh...

Maybe you'll get what you wanted
Maybe you'll stumble upon it
Everything you ever wanted
In a permanent state
Maybe you'll know when you've seen it
Maybe if you'll say it youíll mean it
And when you'll find it you'll keep it
In a permanent state
A permanent state

Swim out on a sea of faces
The tide of the human races
Oh, an answer now is what I need
See it in the new sun rise and
See it breaking on your horizon
Oh, come on love, stay with me

Fix you

When you try your best but you donít succeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you canít sleep
Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you canít replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
Could it be worse

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And high up above or down below
When youíre too in love to let it go
But if you never try youíll never know
Just what youíre worth

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down your face
And iÖ
Tears stream down your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face
And iÖ

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

*** Thanx a lot to Tasha who fixed (!) this one ***

Talk

Oh, brother, I canít, I canít get through
Iíve been trying hard to reach you
Cause I donít know what to do
Oh, brother, I canít believe itís true
Iím so scared about the future
And I want to talk to you
Oh, I want to talk to you

You could take a picture of something you see
In the future where will I be
You could climb a ladder up to the sun
Or write a song nobody had sung
Or do something thatís never been done

Are you lost or incomplete
Do you feel like a puzzle
You canít find your missing piece
Tell me how you feel
Well, I feel like theyíre talking in a language I donít speak
And theyíre talking it to me

So you take a picture of something you see
In the future where will I be
You could climb a ladder up to the sun
Or write a song nobody had sung
Or do something thatís never been done
Or do something thatís never been done

So you donít know where youíre going
And you want to talk
And you feel like youíre going where youíve been before
You'll tell anyone whoíll listen but you feel ignored
And nothingís really making any sense at all
Letís talk, letís talk
Letís talk, letís talk

X & Y

Trying hard to speak and
Fighting with my weak hand
Driven to distraction
Itís all part of the plan
When something is broken
And you try to fix it
Trying to repair it
Any way you can

I dive in at the deep end
You become my best friend
I want to love you but I donít know if I can
I know something is broken and iím trying to fix it
Trying to repair it any way I can

Oooh, oooh...
You and me are floating on a tidal wave
Together
You and me are drifting into outer space
And singing oooh, oooh...

You and me are floating on a tidal wave
Together
You and me are drifting into outer space
You and me are floating on a tidal wave
Together
You and me are drifting into outer space
And singing oooh, oooh
Oooh, oooh...

Speed of sound

How long before I get in
Before it starts, before I begin
How long before you decide
Before I know what it feels like
Where to, where do I go
If you never try then youíll never know
How long do I have to climb
Up on the side of this mountain of mine

Look up, I look up at night
Planets are moving at the speed of light
Climb up, up in the trees
Every chance that you get is a chance you seize
How long am I gonna stand
With my head stuck under the sand
Iíll start before I can stop
Or before I see things the right way up

All that noise and all that sound
All those places I got found
And birds go flying at the speed of sound
To show you how it all began
Birds came flying from the underground
If you could see it, then youíd understand

Ideas that youíll never find
All the inventors could never design
The buildings that you put up
All Japan and China, all lit up
A sign that I couldnít read
Or a light that I couldnít see
Some things you have to believe
But others are puzzles, puzzling me

All that noise and all that sound
All those places I got found
And birds go flying at the speed of sound
To show you how it all began
Birds came flying from the underground
If you could see it, then youíd understand
Ah, when you see it, then youíll understand

All those signs I knew what they meant
Some things you canít invent
Some get made and some get sent
Oh, oh, oh...

And birds go flying at the speed of sound
To show you how it all began
Birds came flying from the underground
If you could see it, then youíd understand
Ah, when you see it, then youíll understand

A message

My song is love
Love to the loveless shown
And it goes up
You donít have to be alone

Your heavy heart
Is made of stone
And itís so hard to see clearly
You donít have to be on your own
You donít have to be on your own

And iím not gonna take it back
And iím not gonna say I donít mean that
Youíre the target that iím aiming at
And I'll get that message home

My song is love
My song is love unknown
And iím on fire for you, clearly
You donít have to be alone
You donít have to be on your own

And iím not gonna take it back
And iím not gonna say I donít mean that
Youíre the target that iím aiming at
And iím nothing on my own
Got to get that message home

And iím not going to stand and wait
Not gonna leave it until itís much too late
Oh, on a platform iím gonna stand and say
That iím nothing on my own
And I love you, please come home

My song is love, is love unknown
And iíve got to get that message home

Low

You see the world in black and white
No color or light
You think youíll never get it right
But youíre wrong, you might
The sky could fall, could fall on me
The parting of the sea
But you mean more, mean more to me
Than any color I can see

All you ever wanted was love
But you never looked hard enough
Itís never gonna give itself up
All you ever wanted to be
Living in perfect symmetry
Nothing is as down or as up
As us

You see the world in black and white
Not painted right
You see no meaning to your life
You should try
You should try

All you ever wanted was love
But you never looked hard enough
Itís never gonna give itself up
All you ever wanted to be
Living in perfect symmetry
Nothing is as down or as up
Donít you want to see it come soon
Floating in a big white balloon
Or given on your own silver spoon
Donít you want to see it come down
There for throwing your arms around
And say "you're not a moment too soon"

Cause I feel low
Cause I feel low
Oh, yeah, I feel low
Oh, no
Oh

Cause I feel low
Cause I feel low
Oh, yeah, I feel low
Oh, no
Oh

The hardest part

And the hardest part was letting go, not taking part
It was the hardest part
And the strangest thing was waiting for that bell to ring
It was the strangest start

I could feel it go down
Bittersweet I could taste in my mouth
Silver lining the clouds
Oh, and I
I wish that I could work it out

And the hardest part was letting go, not taking part
You really broke my heart, oh
And I tried to sing but I couldnít think of anything
And that was the hardest part
Oh, oh

I could feel it go down
You left the sweetest taste in my mouth
The silver lining the clouds
Oh and I, Oh and I,
I wonder what it's all about
I wonder what it's all about

Everything I know is wrong
Everything I do, it just comes undone
And everything is torn apart
Oh, and thatís the hardest part
Thatís the hardest part
Yeah, thatís the hardest part
Thatís the hardest part

Swallowed in the sea

You cut me down a tree and brought it back to me
And thatís what made me see where I was going wrong
You put me on a shelf and kept me for yourself
I can only blame myself, you can only blame me

And I could write a song a hundred miles long
Well, thatís where I belong and you belong with me
And I could write it down or spread it all around
Get lost and then get found
Or swallowed in the sea

You put me on a line and hung me out to dry
And darling, thatís when I decide to go to sea
You cut me down to size and opened up my eyes
Made me realize what I could not see

And I could write a book, the one theyíll say that shook
The world and then it took, it took it back from me
And I could write it down or spread it all around
Get lost and then get found
And youíll come back to me
Not swallowed in the sea

And I could write a song a hundred miles long
Well, thatís where I belong and you belong with me
The streets youíre walking on a thousand houses long
Well, thatís where I belong and you belong with me
Ah, what good is it to live with nothing left to give
Forget but not forgive
Not loving all you see
Oh, the streets youíre walking on a thousand houses long
Well, thatís where I belong and you belong with me
Not swallowed in the sea
You belong with me, not swallowed in the sea
Yeah, you belong with me, not swallowed in the sea

*** Thanx a lot to Cellowraith who updated this one ***

Twisted logic

Sunlight opened up my eyes
To see for the first time
It opened them up
And tonight
Rivers will run dry
And not for the first time
Rivers will run

Hundreds of years in the future
There could be computers
Looking for life on earth
Donít fight for the wrong side
Say what you feel like
Say how you feel

Youíll go backwards
But then youíll go forwards again
Youíll go backwards
But then youíll go

Created then drilled and invaded
If somebody made it
Someone will mess it up
And you are not wrong to
Ask who does this belong to
It belongs to all of us

Youíll go backwards
But then youíll go forwards again
Youíll go backwards
But then youíll go forwards
Youíll go backwards
But then youíll go forwards again
Youíll go backwards
But then youíll go forwards

'Til kingdom come

One... Two...
Still my heart and hold my tongue
I feel my time, my time has come
Let me in, unlock the door
I never felt this way before

And the wheels just keep on turning
The drummer begins to drum
I donít know which way iím going
I donít know which way iíve come

Hold my head inside your hands
I need someone who understands
I need someone, someone who hears
For you iíve waited all these years

For you iíd wait til kingdom come
Until my day, my day is done
And say youíll come and set me free
Just say youíll wait, youíll wait for me

In your tears and in your blood
In your fire and in your flood
I hear you laugh, I heard you sing
I wouldnít change a single thing

And the wheels just keep on turning
The drummers begin to drum
I donít know which way iím going
I donít know what iíve become

For you iíd wait til kingdom come
Until my days, my days are done
Say youíll come and set me free
Just say youíll wait, youíll wait for me
Just say youíll wait, youíll wait for me
Just say youíll wait, youíll wait for me

*** Thanx a lot to Kris & John & Steph who corrected a mistake ***

How you see the world

( Japan bonus track )

Are you missing something
Looking for something
Tired of everything
Searching and struggling
Are you worried about it
Do you wanna talk about it
Oh you're gonna get it right some time

Theres so much to be scared of
And not much to make sense of
Are you running in a circle
You can't be too careful
And you can't relate it
'Cause it's complicated
Oh you're gonna get it right some time
You're gonna get it right some time

It's how you see the world
How many times can you say
You can't believe what you learn

It's how you see the world
Don't you worry yourself
Your not gonna get hurt

Oooohhhhh...

Is there something missing
There's nobody listening
Are you scared of what you don't know
Dont wanna end up on your own
You need conversation
And information

Ohhhhhhhhh...

Gonna get it right sometimes
You just wanna get it right sometimes

It's how you see the world
How many times have you heard
You can't believe a word

It's how you see the world
Don't you worry yourself
'Cos nobody can learn

Oooooh
Oooooh
Ooooooooh

That's how you see the world
That's how you see the world

*** Thanx a lot to Aaron who corrected a little mistake ***

Viva La Vida Or Death And All His

Cemeteries of London

At night they would go walking
Til the breaking of the day
The morning is for sleeping

Through the dark streets they go searching
To see God in their own way
Save the night time for your weeping
Your weeping

Singing la la la la la la la le
And the night over London lay

So we rode down to the river
Where Victoria ghosts pray
For their curses to be broken

We go underneath the arches
Where the witches are and they say
There are ghost towns in the ocean
The ocean

Singing la la la la la la la le
And the night over London lay

God is in the houses
And God is in my head
And all the cemeteries of London

I see God come in my garden
But I donít know what he said
For my heart it wasnít open
Not open

Singing la la la la la la la le
And the night over London lay

Singing la la la la la la la le
Thereís no light over London today

Lost!

Just because I'm losing
Doesn't mean I'm lost
Doesn't mean I've stopped
Doesn't mean I'm across

Just because I'm hurting
Doesn't mean I'm hurt
Doesn't mean I didn't get what I deserved
No better and no worse

I just got lost
Every river that I tried to cross
Every door I ever tried was locked
Oh and I'm just waiting 'til the shine wears off

You might be a big fish
In a little pond
Doesn't mean you've won
'Cause along will come
A bigger one

And you'll be lost
Every river that you tried to cross
Every gun you ever held went off
Oh and I'm just waiting 'til the firing's stopped
Oh and I'm just waiting 'til the shine wears off

Oh and I'm just waiting 'til the shine wears off
Oh and I'm just waiting 'til the shine wears off

Those who are dead are not dead
They're just living in my head
And since I fell for that spell
I am living there as well

Time is so short
And I'm sure
There must be something more

Those who are dead are not dead
They're just living in my head
And since I fell for that spell
I am living there as well

Time is so short
And I'm sure
There must be something more

You thought you might be a ghost
You thought you might be a ghost
You didn't get to heaven but you made it close
You didn't get to heaven but you made it close

You thought you might be a ghost
You thought you might be a ghost
You didn't get to heaven but you made it close
You didn't get to heaven but you oh-oh, oh-oh

Those who are dead are not dead
They're just living in my head

Lovers in Japan

Lovers, keep on the road you're on
Runners until the race is run
Soldiers, you've got to soldier on
Sometimes even the right is wrong

They are turning my head out
To see what I'm all about
Keeping my head down
To see what it feels like now
But I have no doubt
One day we're gonna get out

Tonight maybe we're gonna run
Dreaming of the Osaka sun
Oh oh oh
Dreaming of when the morning comes

They are turning my head out
To see what I'm all about
Keeping my head down
To see what it feels like now
But I have no doubt
One day the sun will come out

Reign of love

Reign of love
I canít let go
To the sea I offer
This heavy load

Locust wind
Lift me up
Iím just a prisoner
In a reign of love

Locust wind
Let us stop
How I wish Iíd spoken up
To a reign of love

Reign of love
By the church, weíre waiting
Reign of love
On my knees go praying

How I wish Iíd spoken up
Away get carried
On a reign of love

Yes

When it started we had high hopes
Now my backís on the line
My backís on the ropes

When it started we were alright
But night makes a fool of us
In daylight

There we were dying of frustration
Saying Lord lead me not into temptation
But itís not easy when she turns you on
Sin, stay gone

If youíd only, if youíd only say ďYesĒ
Whether you will's anybodyís guess
God only God knows Iím trying my best
But Iím just so tired of this loneliness

Hey

So up they picked me by the big toe
I was held from the rooftop then they let go
Dizzily screaming 'Let the windows down'
As I crawl to the ground

If youíd only, if youíd only say ďYesĒ
Whether you will's anybodyís guess
God only God knows she wonít let me rest
But Iím just so tired of this loneliness
Iíve become so tired of this loneliness

Chinese sleep chant :
Ah sleep
I need
Sleep satisfies
Sleep satisfies (x2)

Sleep, sleep, sleep
Sleep, sleep
Sleep satisfies
Sleep satisfies

Fall asleep
Fall asleep
Sleep mystifies
Sleep mystifies

Fall asleep
Fall asleep
Sleep satisfies
Sleep satisfies

Sleep, sleep, sleep
Sleep, sleep
Sleep satisfies
Sleep satisfies

Viva la vida

I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning I sleep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own

I used to roll the dice
Feel the fear in my enemyís eyes
Listened as the crowd would sing
Now the old king is dead, long live the king

One minute I held the key
Next the walls were closed on me
And I discovered that my castles stand
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand

I hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing
Roman cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
Missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can't explain
Once you'd go there was never
Never an honest word
And that was when I ruled the world

It was a wicked and wild wind
Blew down the doors to let me in
Shattered windows and the sound of drums
People couldnít believe what Iíd become

Revolutionaries wait
For my head on a silver plate
Just a puppet on a lonely string
Oh who would ever want to be king

I hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing
Roman cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
Missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I canít explain
I know Saint Peter won't call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world

Hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing
Roman cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
Missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I canít explain
I know Saint Peter won't call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world

Violet Hill

Was a long and dark December
From the rooftops I remember
There was snow, white snow

Clearly I remember
From the windows they were watching
While we froze down below

When the future's architectured
By a carnival of idiots on show
You'd better lie low

If you love me
Won't you let me know

Was a long and dark December
When the banks became cathedrals
And a fox became God

Priests clutched onto bibles
Hollowed out to fit their rifles
And a cross was held aloft

Bury me in armour
When Iím dead and hit the ground
My nerves are poles that unfroze

And if you love me
Won't you let me know

I don't want to be a soldier
Who the captain of some sinking ship
Would stow, far below

So if you love me
Why d'you let me go

I took my love down to violet hill
There we sat in snow
All that time she was silent still

Said if you love me
Won't you let me know

If you love me
Won't you let me know

Strawberry swing

They were sitting
They were sitting on the strawberry swing
Every moment was so precious

They were sitting
They were talking in the strawberry swing
Everybody was for fighting
Wouldn't want to waste a thing

Cold, cold water
Bring me round
Now my feet won't touch the ground

Cold, cold water
What you say
When it's such
It's such a perfect day
It's such a perfect day

I remember
We were walking up to strawberry swing
I can't wait until the morning
Wouldn't want to change a thing

People leaving all the time
Inside a perfectly straight line
Don't you wanna curve away
When It's such
It's such a perfect day
It's such a perfect day

Now the sky could be blue
I don't mind
Without you it's a waste of time

Could be blue
I don't mind
Without you it's a waste of time

Now the sky could be blue
Could be grey
Without you I'm just miles away

Oh the sky could be blue
I don't mind
Without you it's a waste of time

Death and all his friends

All winter
We got carried
Away over on the rooftops let's get married

All summer we just hurried
So come over just be patient and donít worry
So come over just be patient and donít worry

So come over just be patient and donít worry
And donít worry

Try, try...

No, I don't want a battle from beginning to end
I don't want a cycle of recycled revenge
I don't want to follow death and all of his friends

No, I don't want a battle from beginning to end
I don't want a cycle of recycled revenge
I don't want to follow death and all of his friends

The escapist :
And in the end
We lie awake
And we dream
We'll make an escape

And in the end
We lie awake
And we dream
We'll make an escape


Mylo Xyloto

Hurts Like Heaven

Written in graffiti on a bridge in a park
"Do you ever get the feeling that you're missing the mark"
It's so cold, it's so cold
It's so cold, it's so cold

Written up in marker on a factory sign
"I struggle with the feeling that my life isn't mine"
It's so cold, it's so cold
It's so cold, it's so cold

See the arrow they shot, trying to tear us apart
Take the fire from my belly and the beat from my heart
Still I won't let go
Still I won't let go
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Of you
Cause you do
Oh you use your heart as a weapon
And it hurts like heaven

On every street, every car, every surface a name
Tonight the streets are ours
And we're writing and saying
Don't let 'em take control
No, we won't let 'em take control

Yes, I feel a little bit nervous
Yes, I feel nervous and I cannot relax
How come they're out to get us
How come they're out when they don't know the facts

So on a concrete canvas under cover of dark
On a concrete canvas, I'll go making my mark
Armed with the spraycan soul
I'll be armed with a spraycan soul

You
Oh, you
'Cause you, you use your heart as a weapon
And it hurts like heaven

Yeah it's true
When you
Use your heart as a weapon
Then it hurts like heaven
And it hurts like heaven

Paradise

When she was just a girl
She expected the world
But it flew away from her reach
So she ran away in her sleep
And dreamed of para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise
Every time she closed her eyes
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
When she was just a girl
She expected the world
But it flew away from her reach
And the bullets catch in her teeth
Life goes on, it gets so heavy
The wheel breaks the butterfly
Every tear a waterfall
In the night, the stormy night
She'll close her eyes
In the night, the stormy night
Away she'd fly

And dreams of para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise

She'd dream of para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise

And so lying underneath those stormy skies
She'd say oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
I know the sun must set to rise

This could be para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise

This could be para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise

This could be para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise

Charlie Brown

Stole a key
Took a car downtown where the lost boys meet
Took a car downtown and took what they offered me
To set me free

I saw the lights go down at the end of the scene
Saw the lights go down and standing in front of me

In my scarecrow dreams
When they smash my heart into smithereens
Be a bright red rose come bursting the concrete
Be a cartoon heart
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Light a fire, a fire, a spark
Light a fire, a flame in my heart
We'll run wild
We'll be glowing in the dark
Weíll be glowing in the dark

All the boys, all the girls
All that matters in the world
All the boys, all the girls
All the madness that occurs
All the highs, all the lows
As the room a-spinning goes

We'll run riot
We'll be glowing in the dark

So we'll soar
Luminous and wired
We'll be glowing in the dark

Us Against the World

Oh morning come bursting the clouds amen
Lift off this blindfold, let me see again
Bring back the water, let your ships roll in
In my heart she left a hole

The tightrope that I'm walking just sways and ties
The devil as he's talking to those angel's eyes
And I just want to be there when the lightening strikes
And the saints go marching in
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
And sing
Slow it down
Through chaos as it swirls
It's us against the world

Like a river to a raindrop, I lost a friend
My drunken hazard Daniel in a lion's den
And tonight I know it all has to begin again
So whatever you do, don't let go

And if we could float away
Fly up to the surface and just start again
Lift off before trouble just erodes us in the rain
Just erodes us in the rain
Just erodes us and see roses in the rain saying

Slow it down
Slow it down

Through chaos as it swirls
It's us against the world

Through chaos as it swirls
It's us against the world
Through chaos as it swirls
It's us against the world

Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall

I turn the music up, I got my records on
I shut the world outside until the lights come on
Maybe the streets alight, maybe the trees are gone
I feel my heart start beating to my favourite song

And all the kids they dance, all the kids all night
Until Monday morning feels another life
I turn the music up
I'm on a roll this time
And heaven is in sight
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
I turn the music up, I got my records on
From underneath the rubble sing a rebel song
Don't want to see another generation drop
I'd rather be a comma than a full stop

Maybe Iím in the black, maybe Iím on my knees
Maybe Iím in the gap between the two trapezes
But my heart is beating and my pulses start
Cathedrals in my heart

And we saw oh this light
I swear you, emerge blinking into
To tell me it's alright
As we soar walls
Every siren is a symphony
And every tear's a waterfall
Is a waterfall
Oh
Is a waterfall
Oh oh oh
Is a is a waterfall
Every tear
Is a waterfall
Oh oh oh

So you can hurt, hurt me bad
But still Iíll raise the flag

Oh
It was a wa wa wa wa wa-aterfall
A wa wa wa wa wa-aterfall

Every tear
Every tear
Every teardrop is a waterfall

Every tear
Every tear
Every teardrop is a waterfall

Major Minus

They got one eye watching you
One eye on what you do
So be careful who it is you're talking to

They got one eye watching you
One eye on what you do
So be careful what it is you're trying to do

And be careful when you're walking into view
Just be careful when you're walking into view

Got one eye on the road and one on you
Got one eye on the road and one on
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
They got one eye watching you
One eye on what you do
So be careful cause nothing they say is true

No, don't believe a word
It's just us against the world
And we just got to turn up to be heard

Hear the crocodiles ticking round the world
Hear those crocodiles ticking, they go ticking round the world

Got one eye on the road and one on you
Got one eye on the road and one on

She can hear them climbing the stairs
I got my right side fighting
While my left hides under the chairs

Got one eye on the road and one on you
Got one eye on the road and one on you

U.F.O.

Lord I don't know which way I am going
Which way the river's gonna flow
It just seems that upstream, I keep rowing
Still got such a long way to go
Still got such a long way to go
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Then that light hits your eyes
I know, I swear we'll find somewhere
The streets are paved with gold

Bullets fly split the sky
But that's alright, sometimes
Sunlight comes streaming through the holes

Princess of China

Once upon a time somebody ran
Somebody ran away saying "fast as I can
I got to go, I got to go"

Once upon a time, we fell apart
You're holding in your hands the two halves of my heart

Once upon a time, we burned bright
Now all we ever seem to do is fight
On and on, and on and on and on

Once upon a time, on the same side
Once upon a time, on the same side
In the same game
Now why do you have to go
Have to go and throw water on my flame
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
I could have been a princess, you'd be a king
Could have had a castle and worn a ring
But no, you let me go
I could have been a princess, you'd be a king
Could have had a castle and worn a ring
But no, you let me go

You stole my star
La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la
You stole my star
La la la la la la

'Cause you really hurt me
No, you really hurt me
'Cause you really hurt me
No, you really hurt me
'Cause you really hurt me
You really hurt me, oh
'Cause you really hurt me
You really hurt me

Up In Flames

So it's over
This time I know it's gone
Saltwater
Tasted it too long

I only know I'm wrong
Now I know it's gone
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Up in flames
Up in flames
Up in flames
We have slowly gone

So it's over
This time you're flying on
This time I know no song
Can stop its lonely burn
Can stop it slowly going

Up in flames
Up in flames
Up in flames
We have slowly gone

Up in flames
Up in flames
Up in flames
We have slowly gone

Can't we pour some water on

Don't Let It Break Your Heart

And if I lost a map
If I lost it all
Or fell into the trap
Then she'd call

"When you're tired of racing
And you find you never left the start
Come on baby, don't let it break your heart"
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Though heavily we bled
Still on we crawl
Try to catch a cannonball
And a slowly burning tide
Through my veins is flowing
From my shipwreck I heard her call
And she said

"When you're tired of aiming your arrows
Still you'll never hit the mark
Even in your rain and shadows
Still we're never going to part
Come on baby don't let it break your heart
Don't let it break your heart"

Up With The Birds

The birds they sang, break of day
Start again I hear them say
It's so hard to just walk away

The birds they sang, all a choir
Start again, a little higher
It's a spark in a sea of grey

The sky is blue, dream that lie till it's true
Then taking back the punch I threw
My arms turn wings
Oh those clumsy things
Send me up to that wonderful world
And then I'm up with the birds
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Might have to go
Where they don't know my name
Float all over the world
Just to see her again
But I won't show or feel any pain
Even though all my armour might rust in the rain

A simple plot
But I know one day
Good things are coming our way

A simple plot
But I know one day
Good things are coming our way
Oh yeah
