Fix You

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 some one 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

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 know Coldplay are a cliche. I know that they represent asinine music for the middle classes. But they summed up my mood today as I ripped up paper to the strains of Radio 1. If I never try I'l never know.

Yep...they are wallpaper...but like good wallpaper...I do like fix you. It's how I feel a lot...but it is not my favourite.

They are NOT asinine. They just don't use the potential they have. Anyway, the band that can write "Shiver" can do no wrong in my eyes.
