The top floor production can't hide the conservative tendencies
When Chris Martin admitted the other week that he doesn’t make his kids, Apple and Moses, listen to Coldplay at home, it was the latest in an endless line of self-lacerating mumbles. It was typical of a man who consistently reminds us that names, as well as sticks and stones, can hurt. ‘ Yellow ’ might have been the colour that made them but, says the chatter of the blogosphere, it’s...

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
When she was just a girl
She expected the world
But it flew away from her reach so
She ran away in her sleep
I 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
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
Somewhere up above the stars
The wreckage of a universe floats past
Somewhere up above my heart
A tiny little seed is sown,
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 start beating to my favorite song
They got one eye on what you knew
And one eye on what you do
So be careful who it is you're talking to
Lord I don't know which way I am going
Which way the river gonna flow
It's just seems that upstream, I keep rowing
Still got such a long way to go
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
So it's over
This time, I know, it's gone
Tasted it too long
And, if I lost a man,
If I lost it all,
Or fell into the trap,
Would you go.
If I lost the map
If I lost it all
I fell into the trap
The birds they sang
The break of day
Start again I hear them say
It's so hard to just walk away
