Best coldplay lyrics songs


  • 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 science 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

  • ===========================

  • When you try your best but you don't succeed
  • When you get what you want but not what you need
  • When you feel so tired but you can't sleep
  • Stuck in reverse

  • When the tears come streaming down your face
  • When you lose something you can't replace
  • When you love someone but it goes to waste
  • Could it be worse?

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

  • High up above or down below
  • When you're too in love to let it go
  • But if you never try you'll never know
  • Just what you're 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 I

  • Tears stream down your face
  • I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
  • Tears stream down your face
  • And I

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

  • ===========================

  • 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 enemy's eyes
  • Listen 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 are ringing
  • Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
  • Be my mirror, my sword and shield
  • My missionaries in a foreign field

  • ===========================
  • For some reason I can't explain
  • Once you're gone there was never
  • Never an honest word
  • But that was when I ruled the world

  • It was the wicked and wild wind
  • Blew down the doors to let me in
  • Shattered windows and the sound of drums
  • People couldn't believe what I'd 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 are ringing
  • Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
  • Be my mirror, my sword and shield
  • My missionaries in a foreign field

  • For some reason I can't explain
  • I know Saint Peter won't call my name
  • Never an honest word
  • But that was when I ruled the world
  • Woahahahah oh, woahahah oh
  • Woahahahah oh, woahahah oh,
  • Woahahahah

  • I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
  • Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
  • Be my mirror, my sword and shield
  • My missionaries in a foreign field

  • For some reason I can't explain
  • I know Saint Peter won't call my name
  • Never an honest word
  • But that was when I ruled the world

  • ooooooh ooh oooooh oh ooooooh oh oooooh ooh.

  • 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 the fox
  • Became God

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

  • Bury me in armour
  • When I'm dead and hit the ground
  • My nerves are poles that unfold

  • If you love me
  • Won't you let me know?

  • I don't want to be a soldier
  • With 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 the time she was silent and still

  • If you love me
  • Won't you let me know?

  • If you love me
  • Won't you let me know?

  • 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 with those angel's eyes
  • And I just want to be there when the lightning strikes
  • And the saints go marching in

  • 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 as a 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
  • And 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

  • Sing 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

  • 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

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

  • As 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 I'll raise the flag

  • Oh

  • 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

  • Every tear
  • Every tear
  • Every teardrop is a waterfall

  • 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
  • I saw the lights go down and standing in front of me

  • In my scarecrow dreams
  • When they smashed my heart into smithereens
  • Be a bright red rose come bursting the concrete
  • Be the cartoon heart

  • Light a fire, light a spark
  • Light a fire, a flame in my heart

  • We'll run wild oh

  • We'll be glowing in the dark

  • All the boys, all the girls
  • All that matters in the world
  • All the boys, all the girls
  • All that matters that occurs
  • All the highs, all the lows
  • As the room is spinning, oh

  • We'll be glowing in the dark

  • Living innocent wild
  • We'll be glowing in the dark

  • A spider web it's 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

  • From up above I heard
  • The angels sing to me these words
  • And sometimes in your eyes
  • I see the beauty in the world

  • Oh, now I'm floating so high
  • I blossom and die
  • Send your storm and your lightning to strike
  • Me between the eyes
  • Eyes

  • Sometimes the stars decide
  • To reflect in puddles in the dirt
  • When I look in your eyes
  • I forget all about what hurts

  • Oh, now I'm floating so high
  • I blossom and die
  • Send your storm and your lightning to strike
  • Me between the eyes
  • And cry

  • Believe in miracles

  • At night they would go walking 'till 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 nighttime for your weeping
  • Your weeping

  • Singing la lalalalala la la
  • And the night over London lay

  • So we rode down to the river, where the toiling ghosts spring
  • For their curses to be broken
  • We'd go underneath the arches, where the witches are in the saying
  • There are ghost towns in the ocean
  • The ocean

  • Singing la lalalalala la la
  • And the night over London lay

  • God is in the houses and God is in my head
  • And all the cemeteries in London
  • I see God come in my garden, but I don't know what he said
  • For my heart it wasn't open
  • Not open

  • Singing la lalalalala la la
  • And the night over London lay
  • Singing la lalalalala la la
  • There's no light over London today.

  • In the darkness before the dawn
  • In the swirling of this storm
  • When I'm rolling with the punches and hope is gone

  • And the hardest part
  • Was letting go, not taking part
  • 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 cloud
  • 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

  • And I tried to sing
  • But I couldn't think of anything
  • And that was the hardest part

  • I could feel it go down
  • You left the sweetest taste in my mouth
  • You're 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's just comes undone
  • And everything is torn apart

  • Oh and it's the part
  • That's the hardest part
  • Yeah that's the hardest part
  • That's the hardest part
