Song lyrics
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

This Coldplay song is awesome. Tears roll down my face each time I hear this song. At first this was just because of the music and voices. Then I listened to the lyrics and I understood why my tears roll down. I know just two other songs (both from the 80's), that cannot keep me dry: Willow (Joan Armatrading) and So Strong (Labi Siffre).

I'm so emotionally attached to this song, it's almost difficult hearing it. But I love it!

This is one of the best songs ever. We actually did a cover of this on YouTube if anyone is interested in checking it out. Here is the link: http://youtu.be/5KFQH31atic

Hope we did this song at least a little bit of justice. Hope you enjoy!

Rilla's song if there ever was one (this and "Talk" obviously. Coldplay were put on this earth to write and compose songs for "Rilla of Ingleside", and that's a fact).

Beautifully worded lyrics for life's moments when we try our best, but don't succeed.

But these are the moments where the winners raise themselves and give their best once again, until they succeed!

if you know your music then you know this is prob the greatest song ever made. with so much to think of, almost every line relates to a person in every way. And the build up is great, with the end calming back down again, just pure genius....keep up the good work...my fave song yet!!

okay, so, every site says that the lyrics are "tears stream down your face, i promise you i will learn from my mistakes" but i swear, if you listen to that song closely (please do this cause i think those lyrics are wrong), it says "tears stream down your face, i promise you i will look for the mistakes".

plus, it makes a lot more sense.
like he's saying that he'll try to fix the "mistake" that made whoever cry.
maybe it's just me but that's what it seems like.

i've promised myself that if any boy told me "lights will guide you home and ignite your bones... and i'll try to fix you" i'd marry him the most romantic song ever...and chris's voice....
