Poetry Tuesday: "I Will Fix You" by Coldplay



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

And 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
And I will try to fix you

And 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 love Coldplay's music. I feel Chris Martin has a good and gentle soul. Like you. Music can go a long way towards "fixing" us.

It reads differently when you consider it might be a veterinarian talking to a dog...though I've never seen a dog cry. ;) (Don't mind me. I'm loopy-tired from a whole 30 minutes' physical labor in the garden yesterday.)

I've heard a couple of Coldplays songs and have liked them but I don't believe I've heard this one.

Nothing like some Coldplay. I wonder who write the lyrics.

Music holds so much emotion for me. Even songs that brought me to tears, years ago, still has the ability to do it now. Maybe it always will.
