Lyrics[edit]

Parachutes (2000)[edit]

Here I am and I'll take my time
Here I am and I'll wait in line

Always,
Always...

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

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, if you care

Oh, 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
I sing it loud and clear
I'll always be waiting for you

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

Did I drive you away?
I know what you’ll say
You say, “Oh, sing one we know,”
But I promise you this
I’ll always look out for you
That’s what I’ll do.

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
Cause you were all yellow

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

A Rush of Blood to the Head (2002)[edit]

Oh, I'm gonna buy this place and see it burn
And do back the things it did to you in return

He said I'm gonna buy a gun and start a war..♪♫

Give me one, 'cause one is best
In confusion, confidence
Give me peace of mind and trust
Don't forget the rest of us
Give me strength, reserve control
Give me heart and give me soul
Wounds that heal and cracks that fix
Tell me your own politik


Sing it please, please, please
Come back and sing to me
To me, me

Come on and sing it out, now, now
Come on and sing it out
To me, me
Come back and sing
In my place, in my place
Were lines that I couldn't change
I was lost, oh yeah
Oh yeah


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

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

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 on things unsaid
Shoot an apple off my head and a
Trouble that can't be named
Tigers waiting to be tamed, singing

You are
You are

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

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

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

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

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

Live 2003 (2003)[edit]

"if the sky's gonna fall down let it fall on me..." "Like Moses has power over the sea, you've got that power over me"

X&Y (2005)[edit]

  • Lights will guide you home
    And ignite your bones
    And I will try to fix you
  • Are you lost or incomplete?
    Do you feel like a puzzle, you can't find your missing piece?
    Tell me how do you feel?
    Well I feel like they're talking in a language I don't speak
    And they're talking it to me.

Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends (2008)[edit]

"Cemeteries of London"[edit]

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 lalalalalalalalaiy
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 wandering 'neath the arches where the witches are and they say
There are ghost towns in the ocean
The ocean.
Singing lalalalalalalalaiy
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 lalalalalalalalaiy
And the night over London lay
Singing lalalalalalalalaiy
There's no light over London today.

"Lost!"[edit]

Just because I'm losing
Doesn't mean I'm lost
Doesn't mean I'll stop
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
Ohhh and I'm just waiting 'til the firing stopped
Ohhh and I'm just waiting 'til the shine wears off.

Ohhh and I'm just waiting 'til the firing stopped
Ohhh and I'm just waiting 'til the shine wears off.

"42"[edit]

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, ohh
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, ohh
And since I fell for that spell, I am living there as well, ohh
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...
Those who are dead are not dead, they're just living in my head
Wooohh...

"Lovers in Japan / Reign of Love"[edit]

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 are gonna get out.

Tonight, maybe we're gonna run
Dreaming of the Osaka sun
Ohh, ohh...
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, I can't let go
To the sea I offer this heavy load
Locusts will lift me up
I'm just a prisoner in a reign of love.
Locusts will let us stop
I wish I'd spoken to the reign of love
Reign of love, by the church we're waiting
Reign of love, my knees go praying
How I wish I'd spoken up
Or we'd be carried in the reign of love.

"Yes"[edit]

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 alright
But night makes a fool of us in the daylight.
Then we were dying of frustration
Saying "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 anybody's 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.

"Viva la Vida"[edit]

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
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, my missionary's in a foreign field
For some reason I can't explain
Once you'd 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 missionary's 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.

Oh oh oh oh ohh oh, oh oh oh oh ohh oh
Oh oh oh oh ohh oh, oh oh oh oh ohh oh
Hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing, Roman cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield, my missionary's 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.

"Violet Hill"[edit]

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 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 the snow
All that time she was silent still
So if you love me, won't you let me know?
If you love me, won't you let me know?

"Strawberry Swing"[edit]

They were sitting, they were sitting on the strawberry swing
Every moment was so precious
They were sitting, they were talking under strawberry swing
Everybody was for fighting
Wouldn't wanna waste a thing.
Cold, cold water bring me round
Now my feet won't touch the ground
Cold, cold water, what ya 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 wanna change a thing.
People moving all the time
Inside a perfectly straight line
Don't you wanna just 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 sky
Could be blue, could be grey
Without you I'm just miles away
Could be blue, I don't mind
Without you it's a waste of time.

"Death and All His Friends"[edit]

All winter we got carried
Oh, way 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 want to 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 to 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.

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.

Prospekt's March (2008)[edit]

"Life in Technicolor ii"[edit]

There's a wild wind blowing down the corner of my street
Every night there the headlights are glowing
There's a cold war coming, on the radio I heard
Baby, it's a violent world.
Oh love, don't let me go
Won't you take me where the streetlights glow
I could hear it coming, I could hear the sirens sound
Now my feet won't touch the ground.

Time came a-creepin', oh and time's a loaded gun
Every road is a ray of light
It goes o-o-on, time only can lead you on
Still it's such a beautiful night.
Oh love, don't let me go
Won't you take me where the streetlights glow
I could hear it coming, like a serenade of sound
Now my feet won't touch the ground.

Ohhh ohh-whoh
Gravity release me, and don't ever hold me down
Now my feet won't touch the ground.

"Glass of Water"[edit]

Scared of losing all the time, he wrote it in a letter
He was a friend of mine
He heard you could see your future inside a glass of water
The ripples and the rhymes
And he asked, "Will I see heaven in mine?"
That is just the way it was
Nothing could be better and nothing ever was
Oh, they say you could see your future inside a glass of water
The riddles and the rhymes.
Will I see heaven in mine?
Oh oh oh ah son, don't ask
Neither how full nor empty is your glass
Cling... to the mast
Spend your whole life living in the past
Going nowhere fast.

So he wrote it on a wall
The hollowest of halos is no halo at all
Televisions selling plastic figurines of leaders
Saying nothing at all.
And you chime, star in heaven align
Oh oh oh ah son, don't ask
Neither how full nor empty is your glass
Cling... to the mast
Spend your whole life living in the past
Going nowhere fast.

Oh, what are we drinking when we're done?
Glasses of water...

"Rainy Day"[edit]

Then there was rain
The sky wore a veil of gold and green
Night is the bride of a lonely day
Time just floated.
Then there was rain
The sound foundations are crumbling
To the ground comes a pyramid tumbling
Time just floated away
We watch it and stay and we can listen.
Oh, rainy day come round
Sometimes I just want it to slow down
And we're separated now, I'm down
But I love it when you come over to the house
I love it when you come over to my house.

Then there was rain
I spent the night with the queen of Spain
My lonely little heart well it broke again
Time so vicious
The deeper that the knife goes in, the more you win
You end up with less than where you begin
The deeper that the knife goes in
Oooohhhh...
Oh, rainy day come round
Sometimes I just want it to slow down
And we're separated now, I'm down
But I love it when you come over to the house
I love it when you come over to my house.
But I love it when you come over to the house
I love it when you come over to my house
I love it when you come over to the house
I love it when you come over to my house.

"Prospekt's March/Poppyfields"[edit]

Smoke is rising from the houses
People burying their dead
I ask somebody what the time is
But time doesn't matter to them yet.
People talking without speaking
Trying to take what they can get
I ask you if you remember
Prospekt, how could I forget?
Drums, here it comes
Don't you wish that life can be as simple
As fish swimming round in a barrel
When you've got the gun?
Oh when I run, here it comes
We're just two little figures in a soup bowl
Trying to get to any kind of control
But I wasn't one.
Now here I lie on my own in a separate sky
Here I lie on my own in a separate sky
I don't wanna die on my own here tonight
But here I lie on my own in a separate sky.

"Lost+"[edit]

Martin: Just because I'm losing
Doesn't mean I'm lost
Doesn't mean I'll stop
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
Ohhh and I'm just waiting 'til the firing stopped
Ohhh and I'm just waiting 'til the shine wears off
Jay-Z: Yeah... just waitin' til the... yeah
Aha, I got you, uh...
With the same sword they knight you, they gon' good night you with
Shit, that's only half if they like you
That ain't even the half what they might do
Don't believe me, ask Michael.
See Martin, see Malcolm
See Biggie, see Pac, see success and its outcome
See Jesus, see Judas
See Caesar, see Brutus, see success is like suicide.
Suicide, it's a suicide
If you succeed, prepare to be crucified, uh
Media meddles, niggas sue you, you settle
Every step you take, they remind you you're ghetto.
So it's tough being Bobby Brown
To be Bobby then, you have to be Bobby now
And the question is, "Is to have had and lost"
"Better than not having at all?"
Because I'm...
Martin: Ohhh and I'm just waiting 'til the shine wears off
Ohhh and I'm just waiting 'til the shine wears off.

"Now My Feet Won't Touch the Ground"[edit]

Let me go boys, let me go
Push my boat from the highest cliff to the sea below
Rocks are waiting boys, if rocks await
Swoop down from the sky and catch me like a bird of prey.
Now my feet won't touch the ground
Now my head won't stop
You wait a lifetime to be found
Now my feet won't touch the ground.

Singing, now my feet won't touch the ground
Now my head won't stop
You wait a lifetime to be found
Now my feet won't touch the ground
Now my feet won't touch the ground.

Mylo Xyloto (2011)[edit]

"Hurts Like Heaven"[edit]

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 that 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
You-u-u oohooh...
'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 them take control
No, we won't let them 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 concrete canvas undercover of dark
On concrete canvas, I'll go making my mark
Armed with a spray can soul
I'll be armed with a spray can soul
You-u-u oohooh...
Oh, you-u-u oohooh...
'Cause you use your heart as a weapon
And it hurts like heaven.

Woho-ooh woho-oooh
It's true, when you
Use your heart as a weapon
And it hurts like heaven.

"Paradise"[edit]

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.
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 dream of para-para-paradise, para-para-paradise, para-para-paradise
Oh oh oh oh oh oh-oh-oh
She'd dream of para-para-paradise, para-para-paradise, para-para-paradise
Oh oh oh oh oh oh-oh-oh-oh

Lalalalalalalalalalala
And so lying underneath those stormy skies
She'd say, "oh, ohohohoh I know the sun must set to rise"
This could be para-para-paradise, para-para-paradise, could be para-para-paradise
Oh oh oh oh oh oh-oh-oh
This could be para-para-paradise, para-para-paradise, could be para-para-paradise
Oh oh oh oh oh oh-oh-oh-oh
This could be para-para-paradise, para-para-paradise, could be para-para-paradise
Oh oh oh oh oh oh-oh-oh-oh...

"Charlie Brown"[edit]

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.
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.
Oooh ooh ooh
We'll be glowing in the dark
A-woo-a-wooooo...
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.

Ooooh, ooooh, ooooh
So we'll soar
Luminous and wired
We'll be glowing in the dark.

"Us Against the World"[edit]

Oh, morning come bursting the clouds, amen
Lift off this blindfold, let me see again
And 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-ow-ow-ow 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
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
And sing slow-ow-ow-ow it down
Slow-ow-ow-ow it down
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"[edit]

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 stop beating to my favorite 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'll 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, ah
Is a waterfall, ah ah ah
Is a-is a waterfall, every tear
Is a waterfall, ah ah ah
So you can hurt, hurt me bad
But still I'll raise the flag
It was a wa-wa-wa-wa-waterfall
A wa-wa-wa-wa-wa-terfall!

Every tear, every tear
Every teardrop is a waterfall
Every tear, every tear
Every teardrop is a waterfall...

"Major Minus"[edit]

They got one eye watching you, and one on what you do
So be careful who it is you're talking to
They got one eye watching you, one on what you do
So be careful what it is you're tryin' to do.
And be careful when you're walking into view
Just be careful when you're walking into view
Ooh-ooh-oooh, ooh-ooh-oooh-oooh
Got one eye on the road and one on you
Ooh-ooh-oooh, ooh-ooh-oooh-oooh
Got one eye on the road and one on…

They got one eye watching you, and one on what you do
So be careful 'cause nothing they say is true
Bu-but don't believe a word, it's just us against the world
And we just gotta turn to be heard.
Hear the crocodiles ticking 'round the world
Hear those crocodiles ticking, they go ticking 'round the world
Ooh-ooh-oooh, oh-ooh-oooh-oooh
Got one eye on the road and one on you
Ooh-ooh-oooh, ooh-ooh-oooh-oooh
Got one eye on the road and one on
I can hear them climbing the stairs
I got my right side fighting while my left hides under the chairs...

Ooh-ooh-oooh, oh-ooh-oooh-oooh
Got one eye on the road and one on you
Ooh-ooh-oooh, ooh-ooh-oooh-oooh
Got one eye on the road and one on you.

"U.F.O."[edit]

Lord, I don't know which way I am going
Which way the river's going to 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.
And 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
Ohohoh...

"Princess of China"[edit]

Martin: 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
Oh oh oh, ohohohoh...
Rihanna: Once upon a time we burned bright
Now all we ever seem to do is fight
On and on
Both: 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
Rihanna: Now why d'you have to go
Have to go and throw water on my flame?
I could have been a princess, you'd be a king
Could have had a castle and worn a ring
But no-o-o-o-oh, you let me go-o-o-o-oh
I could have been a princess, you'd be a king
Could have had a castle and worn a ring
But no-o-o-o-oh, you let me go-o-o-o-oh
Both: You stole my star
La, lalala lalalala, lalalalalalala, lalalalalalala
You stole my star
La, lalala lalalala...

'Cos you really hurt me, no you really hurt me
'Cos you really hurt me, no you really hurt me
'Cos you really hurt me, oh-oh you really hurt me
'Cos you really hurt me, oh-oh you really hurt me.

"Up In Flames"[edit]

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
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
We have slowly gone
Can't we pour some water on?

"Don't Let It Break Your Heart"[edit]

And if I lost a map, if I lost it all
I 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.
Though heavily we bled, still on we crawl
Try to catch a cannonball
And a slow burning tide, ooh
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 never hit the mark, ohh
Even in your rains and shadows
Still we're never gonna part, ahh
Come on baby, don't let it break your heart
Don't let it break your heart
Don't let it break your heart
Don't let it break your heart.

"Up With the Birds"[edit]

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 'til 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.

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!

Ghost Stories (2014)[edit]

"Always in My Head"[edit]

I think of you
I haven't slept
I think I do
But I don't forget.
My body moves, goes where I will
But though I try my heart stays still
It never moves, just won't be led
And so my mouth waters to be fed.
And you're always in my head
You're always in my head
You're always in my head
You're always in my head.
You're always in my head
Always in my
Always in my...
This, I guess...
Is to tell you you're chosen out from the rest...

"Magic"[edit]

Call it magic, call it true
I call it magic when I'm with you
And I just got broken, broken into two
Still I call it magic when I'm next to you.
And I don't and I don't and I don't and I don't, no I don't, it's true
I don't, no I don't, no I don't, no I don't want anybody else but you
I don't, no I don't, no I don't, no I don't, no I don't, it's true
I don't, no I don't, no I don't, no I don't want anybody else but you.
Ooh ooh ooh...

Call it magic, cut me into two
And with all your magic, I disappear from view
And I can't get over, can't get over you
Still I call it magic, such a precious jewel.
And I don't and I don't and I don't and I don't, no I don't, it's true
I don't, no I don't, no I don't, no I don't want anybody else but you
I don't, no I don't, no I don't, no I don't, no I don't, it's true
I don't, no I don't, no I don't, no I don't want anybody else but you.
Want to fall, fall so far
I want to fall, fall so hard
And I call it magic, and I call it true
I call it mahh... ma-ma-magic

And if you were to ask me
After all that we've been through
Still believe in magic?
Yes, I do
Oh yes, I do
Oh yes, I do
Oh yes, I do
Of course I do.

"Ink"[edit]

Got a tattoo said "together thru life"
Carved in your name with my pocket knife
And you wonder when you wake up will it be alright, oh oh ohh-oh
Feels like there's something broken inside.
All I know, all I know
Is that I'm lost whenever you go
All I know is that I love you so
So much that it hurts.

Got a tattoo and the pain's alright
Oooh-woooh
Just want a way of keeping you inside
Ohhh, ohhh
All I know, all I know
Is that I'm lost in your fire below
All I know is that I love you so
So much that it hurts.
I see the road begin to climb
I see your stars begin to shine
I see your colours and I'm dying of thirst
All I know is that I love you so
So much that it hurts.
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah!
So much that it hurts
So much that it hurts.

"True Love"[edit]

For a second I was in control
I had it once, I lost it though
And all along the fire below
Would rise
And I wish you could have let me know
What's really going on below
I've lost you now, you let me go
But one last time.
Tell me you love me
If you don't, then lie
Oh, lie to me.

Remember once upon a time
When I was yours and you were blind
A fire would sparkle in your eyes
And mine...
So tell me you love me
If you don't then lie
Oh, lie to me
Just tell me you love me
If you don't then lie
Oh, lie to me
If you don't then lie
Oh, lie to me.
Call it true, call it true love
Call it true, call it true love.

"Midnight"[edit]

In the darkness before the dawn
In the swirling of the storm
When I'm rolling with the punches and hope is gone
Leave a light, a light on.
Millions of miles from home
In the swirling swimming on
When I'm rolling with the thunder but bleed from thorns
Leave a light, a light on
Leave a light, a light on.
Leave a light, a light on
Leave a light, a light on.

In the darkness before the dawn
In the darkness before the dawn
Leave a light, a light on
Leave a light, a light on.

"Another's Arms"[edit]

Late night watching TV
Used to be you here beside me
Used to be your arms around me
Your body on my body.
When the world means nothing to me
Another's arms, another's arms
When the pain just rips right through me
Another's arms, another's arms.

Late night watching TV
Used to be you here beside me
Is there someone there to reach me
Or someone there to find me?
When the pain just rips right through me
Another's arms, another's arms
And that's just torture to me
Another's arms, another's arms
Pull yourself into me
Another's arms, another's arms
When the world means nothing to me
Another's arms, another's arms.

Got to pull you close into me
Another's arms, another's arms
Pull yourself right through me
Another's arms, another's arms.
Late night watching TV
Wish that you were here beside me
Wish that your arms were around me
Your body on my body...

"Oceans"[edit]

Wait for your call love, the call never came
Ready to fall up, ready to claim
And I'm ready for it all love, ready for the pain
Meet under sun and meet me again
In the rain, in the rain.
Behind the walls, love, I'm trying to change
And I'm ready for it all, love, I'm ready for the change
Meet me in blue sky, meet me again
In the rain, the rain, the rain
In the rain, the rain...
Got to find yourself alone in this world
To find yourself alone...

"A Sky Full of Stars"[edit]

Cause you're a sky, cause you're a sky full of stars
I'm gonna give you my heart
Cause you're a sky, cause you're a sky full of stars
Cause you light up the path.
And I don't care, go on and tear me apart
I don't care if you do-oo-oo
Cause in a sky, cause in a sky full of stars
I think I saw you.

Cause you're a sky, cause you're a sky full of stars
I want to die in your arms
Cause you get lighter the more it gets dark
I'm gonna give you my heart.
And I don't care, go on and tear me apart
I don't care if you do-oo-oo
Cause in a sky, cause in a sky full of stars
I think I see you
I think I see you.

Cause you're a sky, you're a sky full of stars
Such a heavenly view
You're such a heavenly view.

"O"[edit]

Flock of birds
Hovering above
Just a flock of birds
That's how you think of love.
And I always
Look up to the sky, pray before the dawn
Cause they fly always
Sometimes they arrive, sometimes they are gone
They fly on.

Flock of birds
Hovering above
Into smoke I'm turned and rise
Following them up.
Still I always
Look up to the sky, pray before the dawn
Cause they fly away
One minute they arrive, next you know they're gone
They fly on
Fly on.
So fly on, ride through
Maybe one day I'll fly next to you
Fly on, ride through
Maybe one day I can fly with you
Fly on, fly on
Fly on...

A Head Full of Dreams (2015)[edit]

"A Head Full of Dreams"[edit]

Oh, I think I landed in a world I hadn't seen
When I'm feeling ordinary, when I don't know what I mean
Oh, I think I landed where there are miracles at work
For the thirst and for the hunger come the conference of birds.
Saying it's true, it's not what it seems
Leave your broken windows open and in the light just streams
And you get a head, a head full of dreams
You can see the change you wanted, be what you want to be
And you get a head, a head full of dreams
Into life I’ve just been spoken, with a head full, a head full of dreams.
Oh, I think I landed where there are miracles at work
When you got me open-handed, when you got me lost for words
I sing oh-oh-oh-ohh
Ohhh-oh-oh-ohh...
A head full of dreams
A head full of dreams
Into life I've just been spoken
With a head full, a head full of dreams.

"Birds"[edit]

Been standing in the corner, studying the lights
The dreaming of escape will keep you up at night
But someone had put the flares up and got me in the rays
So, I guess I'd better stay; "Uh-uh no, come on", you say.
It's a fool's gold thunder, it's just a warring rain
Don't let the fears just start "what if I won't see you again"
Around here you never want to sleep all night
So start falling in love, start the riot and
Come on, rage with me
We don't need words
And we'll be birds
Got to make our own key.

Only got this moment, you and me
Guilty of nothing, but geography
Come on and raise it, come on and raise this noise
For the million people who got not one voice
Come on, it's not over! If you mean it say loud
Come on all for love out from the underground
Away with me
We don't need words
Close your eyes and see
And we'll be birds, flying free
Holding on in the mystery.
Fearless through this
You said we'll go through this together
When you fly, won't you
Won't you take me too?
In this world so cruel
I think you're so cool.

"Hymn for the Weekend"[edit]

Oh, angels sent from up above
You know you make my world light up
When I was down, when I was hurt
You came to lift me up.
Life is a drink and love's a drug
Oh, now I think I must be miles up
When I was a river dried up
You came to rain a flood.
You said "drink from me, drink from me" when I was so thirsty
Poured on a symphony, now I just can't get enough
Put your wings on me, wings on me when I was so heavy
We're on a symphony when I’m lower, lower, lower, low
Ah-oh-ah-oh-ah
Got me feeling drunk and high, so high, so high
Oh, ah-oh-ah-oh-ah
I'm feeling drunk and high, so high, so high.

Oh, angels sent from up above
I feel you coursing through my blood
Life is a drink and your love's about
To make the stars come out.
Put your wings on me, wings on me when I was so heavy
We're on a symphony when I'm lower, lower, lower, low
Ah-oh-ah-oh-ah
Got me feeling drunk and high, so high, so high
Ah-oh-ah-oh-ah
I'm feeling drunk and high, so high, so high.
Ah-oh-ah-oh-ah, la la la la la la la
So high, so high
Ah-oh-ah-oh-ah
I'm feeling drunk and high, so high, so high.
Let me shoot across the sky
Let me shoot across the
Let me shoot across the sky
Let me shoot across the...

"Everglow"[edit]

Oh, they say people come, say people go
This particular diamond was extra special
And though you might be gone, and the world may not know
Still I see you, celestial.
Like a lion you ran, a goddess you rolled
Like an eagle you circled in perfect purple
So how come things move on, how come cars don't slow
When it feels like the end of my world
When I should but I can't let you go?
But when I'm cold, cold
When I'm cold, cold
There's a light that you give me when I'm in shadow
There's a feeling you give me, an everglow.

Like brothers in blood, sisters who ride
And we swore on that night we'd be friends till we died
But the changing of winds, and the way waters flow
Life as short as the falling of snow
And now I'm gonna miss you, I know.
But when I'm cold, cold
In water-rolled... salt
And I know that you're with me and the way you will show
And you're with me wherever I go
And you give me this feeling, this everglow!
What I wouldn’t give for just a moment to hold
Yeah, I live for this feeling, this everglow...
So if you love someone, you should let them know
Oh, the light that you left me will everglow.

"Adventure of a Lifetime"[edit]

Turn your magic on, Umi she'd say
Everything you want's a dream away
We are legends every day
That's what she told me.
Turn your magic on, to me she'd say
Everything you want's a dream away
Under this pressure, under this weight
We are diamonds.
Now I feel my heart beating
I feel my heart underneath my skin
And I can feel my heart beating
'Oh, you make me feel... like I'm alive again
Alive again!
Oh, you make me feel...
Like I'm alive again.

Said I can't go on, not in this way
I'm a dream that died by light of day
Gonna hold up half the sky and say
Only I own me
And I feel my heart beating
I feel my heart underneath my skin
Oh, I can feel my heart beating
'Cause you make me feel... like I'm alive again
Alive again!
Oh, you make me feel
Like I'm alive again.
Turn your magic on, to me she'd say
Everything you want's a dream away
Under this pressure under this weight
We are diamonds taking shape
We are diamonds taking shape

If we've only got this life
This adventure, oh then I
And if we've only got this life
You get me through, ahh
And if we've only got this life
This adventure, oh then I
Want to share it with you
With you, with you
Yeah I do!
Woohoo, woohoo
Woohoo, woohoo...

"Fun"[edit]

"Kaleidoscope"[edit]

This being human is a guest house
Every morning a new arrival
A joy, a depression, a meanness
Some momentary awareness comes
As an unexpected visitor
Welcome and entertain them all!
be grateful for whoever comes
Because each has been sent as a guide.
