Coldplay Songtext: Death And All His Friends

Coldplay Songtext: 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 don’t worry
So come over, just be patient and don’t worry

So come over, just be patient and don’t worry
And don’t worry

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

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

Coldplay Songtext: Violet Hill

Coldplay Songtext: 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 I’m 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?

Coldplay Songtext: Yes

Coldplay Songtext: Yes

When it started, we had high hopes
Now my back’s on the line, my back’s on the ropes
When it started, we were allright
But night makes a fool of us in the daylight

There we were dying of frustration
Singing Lord lead me not into temptation
But it’s not easy when she turns you on
Sin stay gone.

If you’d only, if you’d only say yes
Whether you will’s anybodys guess
God, only God knows I’m trying my best
But I’m just so tired of this loneliness

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 you’d only, if you’d only say yes
Whether you will’s anybody’s guess
God, only God knows she won’t let me rest
But I’m just so tired of this loneliness
I’ve become so tired of this loneliness

Coldplay Songtext: Reign Of Love

Coldplay Songtext: Reign Of Love

Reign of love
I can’t let go
To the sea I offer this heavy load
Locust wind
Lift me up
I’m just a prisoner in a reign of love

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

Reign of love by the church we’re waiting
Reign of love on my knees go praying
How I wish, I’d spoken up
Away get carried on a reign of love

Coldplay Songtext: Lovers In Japan

Coldplay Songtext: Lovers In Japan:
(Video aufrufen)

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 going to get out.

Tonight, maybe we’re gonna run
Dreaming of the Osaka sun
Ohohoh ohohohoh
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.

Coldplay Songtext: 42

Coldplay Songtext: 42

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, oh

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, ohooho
And since I fell for that spell
I am living there as well, ohooho

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, ohooho

Ohooho

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

Coldplay Songtext: Strawberry Swing

Coldplay Songtext: Strawberry Swing

They were sitting
They were sitting in 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 around
Now my feet won’t touch the ground
Cold cold water, whatcha say?
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 ‚til the morning
Wouldn’t want to change a thing

People moving all the time
Inside a perfectly straight line
Don’t you wanna just curve away?
And it’s such, it’s such a perfect day
It’s such a perfect day

Ahhaahh…

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

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

Coldplay Songtext: Lost

Coldplay Songtext: 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
Oho and I’m just waiting till 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 till the firing’s stopped
Oh and I’m just waiting till the shine wears off

Oh and I’m just waiting till the shine wears off
Oh and I’m just waiting till the shine wears off

Coldplay Songtext: Cemeteries Of London

Coldplay Songtext: 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 lala lalala lalalay
And the night over London lay

So we rode down to the river
Where Victorian 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 lala lalala lalalay
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 don’t know what he said
For my heart, it wasn’t open

Not open
Singing lala lalala lalalay
And the night over London lay

Singing lala lalala lalalay
There’s no light over London today

Coldplay Songtext: Viva La Vida

Coldplay Songtext: 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 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 a-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´ve gone 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 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 a-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 St. Peter won’t call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world

Ohh… Ohhh…. Ohhhhoo

Hear Jerusalem bells a-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 St. Peter won’t call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world
