I came across this song by Coldplay entitled "Clocks" for the first time in Rockstar Supernova. It was being performed by one of the contestants. I loved the song so much that I ended up downloading all of Coldplay's albums. The piano parts of the song give me goosebumps. This is one of those songs where I love the instrumental construction of the song more than the song's lyrical meaning. But I love the lyrics of the song as well. So I thought I would share it with all of you here.
As always, I try to find the music video of the song in YouTube, coupled with the lyrics of the song.
Lights go out and I can't be saved
Tides that I tried to swim against
You've put me down upon my knees
Oh I beg, I beg and plead (singing)
Come out of things unsaid, shoot an apple off my head (and a)
Trouble that can't be named, a tiger's waiting to be tamed (singing)
You are, you are
Confusion never stops, closing walls and ticking clocks (gonna)
Come back and take you home, I could not stop that you now know (singing)
Come out upon my seas, curse missed opportunities (am I)
A part of the cure, or am I part of the disease (singing)
You are [4x] (singing)
You are [2x]
And nothing else compares
Oh no nothing else compares
Oh and nothing else compares
You are [continues in background]
Home, home, where I wanted to go [2x](I went)
Home, home, where I wanted to go (I went)
Home, home, where I wanted to go
The song is actually best listened/watched live. Damn, I wish I was that good of a musician to get up on stage like that and perform so well. How I wish. Check out the live version below.
