A Message

One of my favourite Coldplay songs is "A Message", which starts with one of my favourite lines: "My song is love." As wonderful as that song's message is, this one might have an equally special one. I stumbled upon it again, and really think it might be one of the prettier concepts I've ever heard. The slow, soothing ease of the beautiful lyrical beginning, then the uplifting build-up and the choral boom of the ending. It's just one of those very meaningful grand finales that caps off a wonderful album. Hopefully you can find some meaning in it also.


Death and All His Friends - Coldplay

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 wanna battle from beginning to end;
I don't wanna cycle, recycle revenge;
I don't wanna follow death and all his friends.

No I don't wanna battle from beginning to end;
I don't wanna cycle, recycle revenge;
I don't wanna follow death and all of his friends.
