Coldplay X&Y

Been listening to this CD on my ipod and really enjoying it finally. I listened to it before but didn't like it. Then it was one of the few CD I had in my car, and when I put it in I found that I really liked it. I liked it for so many reasons. First of all Coldplay is likely my most favorite band, so the style and musicality is right up my alley, but more than that the lyrics contain actual thought. They are compelling and say alot about the state of our human race. I find myself connecting on so many levels that the last time I listened to this CD I cried. You know how sometimes other people, books, poetry, music, etc. expresses something inside you that has been untouchable, unexplainable...well I suppose that's sort of what happened.


Clearly I have been depressed lately, something I'm due to explore in counseling very soon...so understand that if you are reading this, that at this very moment I am aware that much of my recent states of being are simply big pity parties, but I'm having a hard time shaking that off. So that's just where I am. Take it or leave it.


So many of these songs touched the depth of feeling I've had sloshing around in my for awhile, but track four had me balling the other day. You'll see...


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 you 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


High up above or down below
When your 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 could not replace
Tears stream down your face
And I...


Tears stream down your face
I promise you I will look for the 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 thought it was so neat when I read that they (Coldplay)are your favorite! I have loved them since the first album. Daniel and I went to see them in Kansas City when we were living there. Hands down the best concert I have ever seen!

And by far FIX YOU is my favorite song on the new CD! The lyrics are very representative of my life. I identify with you more than you know. Of course, I did not go through the eye of a hurricane last year! I love you and hope to chat with you about all of this soon!

FIX YOU IS SOOOOOOOO GOOD!!!! I have loved that song since I've gotten the CD. I too, posted it on my blog when I'm having a bad day. Ah, yes - the world of depression. You're going through it in a different way - but I too have been struggling lately. Sometimes music can do wonders - especially soft touch the soul music - like Coldplay.

I hope you continue to work towards feeling better. It's hard, I know.

Hugs!
