Coldplay Songtext: Swallowed In The Sea

You cut me down a tree
And brought it back to me
And that’s 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, that’s 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 the line
And hung me out to dry
And darling that’s when I
Decided to go to see you

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 they’ll 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 you’ll come back to me
Not swallowed in the sea

And I could write a song
A hundred miles long
Well that’s where I belong
And you belong with me

The streets your walking on
A thousand houses long
Well that’s where I belong
And you belong with me

Oh what good is it to live
With nothing left to give
Forget, but not forgive
Not loving all you see
All the streets you’re walking on
A thousand houses long
Well that’s 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

Coldplay Songtext: White Shadows

When I was a young boy
I tried to listen
And I wanna 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’ll never understand
Little white shadows sparkle and glisten
Part of a system, a plan

All this noise, I’m waking up
All this space I’m taking up
All this sound is breaking up

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 see it
Maybe if you say it you’ll mean it
And when you find it you keep it
In a permanent state
A permanent state

When I was a young boy
I tried to listen
Don’t you wanna feel like that?

You’re part of the human race
All of the stars and the outer space
Part of the system, a plan

All this noise, I’m waking up
All this space I’m taking up
I cannot hear, you’re breaking up

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 see it
Maybe if you say it you’ll mean it
And when you find it you keep it
In a permanent state
A permanent state

I’m swimming on a sea of faces
Tide of the human race, and so
An answer now is what I need

See it in the new sun rising
See it break on your horizon, oh
Come on love, stay with me

Coldplay Songtext: Square One

You’re in control
Is there anywhere you want to go?
You’re in control
Is there anything you want to know?
The future’s for discovering
The space in which we’re traveling

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 doesn’t matter who you are

Under the surface trying to break through
Deciphering the codes in you
I need a compass, draw me a map
I’m on the top, I can’t get back

Whooooaa, whooooaa

The first line on the first page
To the end of the last page (you were looking)
From the start in your own way
You just want somebody listening to what you say
It doesn’t matter who you are
It doesn’t matter who you are

You just want somebody listening to what you say
You just want somebody listening to what you say
It doesn’t matter who you are
It doesn’t matter who you are

Is there anybody out there who
Is lost and hurt and lonely too?
Are they bleeding all your colours into one?
And if you come undone
As if you’ve been run through
Some catapult had fired you
You wonder if your chance will ever come
Or if you’re stuck in square one

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
