A Rush of Blood to the Head

Politik

Look at earth from outer space
Everyone has found a place
Give me time and give me space
Give me real; don't give me fake

Give me strength reserve control
Give me heart and give me soul
Give me time; give us a kiss
Tell me your politik

And open up your eyes
Open up your eyes
Open up your eyes
Open up your eyes

Give me one cause one is best
In confusion confidence
Give me peace of mind and trust
Don't forgot the rest of us

Give me strength reserve control
Give me heart and give me soul
Wounds that heal and cracks that fix
Tell me your politik

And open up your eyes
Open up your eyes
Open up your eyes
Open up your eyes
Just open up your eyes

Oh give me love over, love over, love over this
Oh give me love over, love over, love over this

In My Place

Band Quote
"It's probably our favorite song we've ever written so far." - Chris Martin

In my place, in my place
Were lines that I couldn't change
I was lost, oh yeah

And I was lost, I was lost
Crossed lines I shouldn't have crossed
I was lost, oh yeah

Yeah, how long must you wait for it?
Yeah, how long must you pay for it?
Yeah, how long must you wait for it?

I was scared
Tired and under-prepared
But I wait for it
And if you go, if you go
And leave me down here on my own
Then I'll wait for you

Yeah, how long must you wait for it?
Yeah, how long must you pay for it?
Yeah, how long must you wait for it?

Singing please, please, please
Come back and sing to me
Come on and sing it out
Come on and sing it out
Come back and sing

In my place, in my place
Were lines that I couldn't change
And I was lost, oh yeah, oh yeah

God Put A Smile Upon Your Face

Band Quote
"This was a tough song to record. There's a version of it that sounds like Sum41." - Chris Martin

Where do we go
Nobody knows
I've gotta say, I'm on my way down
God give me style and give me grace
God put a smile upon my face

Where do we go to draw the line
I've gotta say I wasted all your time, honey, honey
Where do I go to fall from grace?
God put a smile upon your face

Now when you work it out, I'm worse than you
Yeah when you work it out, I wanted to
Now when you work out where to draw the line
Your guess is as good as mine

Where do we go
Nobody knows
Don't ever say you're on your way down
When god gave you style and give your grace
And put a smile upon your face

Now when you work it out, I'm worse than you
Yeah when you work it out, I wanted to
Now when you work out where to draw the line
Your guess is as good as mine

Where do we go
Nobody knows
Don't ever say you're on your way down
When god gave you style and give your grace
And put a smile upon your face

The Scientist

Come up to meet you, tell you I'm sorry,
You don't know how lovely you are.
I had to find you, tell you I need you,
Tell you I set you apart.

Tell me your secrets and ask me your questions,
Oh lets go back to the start.
Running in circles, coming in tales,
Heads are a science apart.

Nobody said it was easy,
It's such a shame for us to part.
Nobody said it was easy,
No one ever said it would be this hard

Oh take me back to the start.

I was just guessing at numbers and figures,
Pulling your puzzles apart.
Questions of science, science and progress,
Do not speak as loud as my heart.

Tell me you love me, come back and haunt me,
Oh and I rush to the start.
Running in circles, chasing tails,
And coming back as we are.

Nobody said it was easy,
It's such a shame for us to part.
Nobody said it was easy,
Noone ever said it would be so hard.

I'm going back to the start.

Clocks

Lights go out and I cant be seen,
Tides that I tried to swim against,
Have 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 cant be named,
Tigers waiting to be tamed.

Singing
You are
You are

Confusion it never stops,
Closing walls and ticking clocks,
Gonna come back and take you home,
I could not stop the tune I know singing.

Come out upon my seas,
Cursed missed opportunities,
Am I a part of the cure,
Or am I part of the disease?

Singing
You are
You are
You are
You are
You are
You are

And nothing else compares
And nothing else compares
And nothing else compares

You are
You are

Home, home where I wanted to go
Home, home where I wanted to go
Home, home where I wanted to go
Home, home where I wanted to go

Daylight

To my surprise,
And my delight,
I saw a sunrise,
I saw a sunlight.

I am nothing,
In the dark.
And the clouds burst,
To show the daylight.

Oooh and the sun will shine,
Yeah, on this heart of mine.
Ooh and I realize,
Who cannot live without,
Ooh come apart without.

On a hilltop,
On a sky-rise,
Like a firstborn,
Child.

And at full tilt,
And in full flight,
Defeat darkness,
Breaking daylight.

Oooh and the sun will shine,
Yeah, on this heart of mine.
Ooh and I realize,
Who cannot live without,
Ooh come apart without.
Daylight.

Slowly breaking through the daylight. (Repeat)

Green Eyes

Honey you are a rock,
Upon which I stand.
And I come here to talk,
I hope you understand.

The green eyes,
Yeah the spotlight,
Shines upon you,
And how could anybody deny you?

I came here with a load,
And it feels so much lighter now I've met you.
Honey you should know,
I could never go on without you...

Green eyes...

Honey you are the sea,
Upon which I float,
And I came here to talk,
I think you should know.

The green eyes,
You're the one that I wanted to find.
And anybody who tried to deny you,
Must be out of their minds.

'Cause I came here with a load,
And it feels so much lighter since I met you.
Honey you should know,
That I could never go on without you.
Green Eyes...
Green Eyes...

Honey you are the rock upon which I stand.

Warning Sign

A warning sign
I missed the good part, then I realised
I started looking and the bubble burst
I started looking for excuses

Come on in
I've got to tell you what a state I'm in
I've got to tell you in my loudest tones
That I started looking for a warning sign

But the truth is, I miss you
Yeah the truth is, that I miss you so

A warning sign
You came back to haunt me, and I realised
That you were an island, and I passed you by
And you were an island to discover

Come on in
I've got to tell you what a state I'm in
I've got to tell you in my loudest tones
That I started looking for a warning sign

But the truth is, I miss you
Yeah the truth is, that I miss you so
And I'm tired; I should not have let you go

So I crawl back into your open arms
Yes, I crawl back into your open arms
And I crawl back into your open arms
Yes, I crawl back into your open arms

A Whisper

A whisper, a whisper, a whisper, a whisper
A whisper, a whisper, a whisper, a whisper

I hear a sound,
The ticking of clocks,
I remember your face,
Remember to see where you are not.

I hear the sound,
The ticking of clocks,
Come back and look for me, look for me,
When I am lost.

Just a whisper, a whisper, a whisper, a whisper
Just a whisper, a whisper, a whisper, a whisper

Night turns to day,
And I still can't go back to you.

Night turns to day,
Should I go forward to come back to you.

Night turns to day,
And I still can't go back to you.

Just a whisper, a whisper, a whisper, a whisper
Just a whisper, a whisper, a whisper, a whisper

I hear the sound,
The ticking of clocks,
I remember your face,
Remember to see when you are lost.

I hear the sound,
The ticking of clocks,
Come back and look for me, look for me,
When I am lost.

Just a whisper, a whisper, a whisper, a whisper
Just a whisper, a whisper, a whisper, a whisper

A Rush of Blood to the Head

You said 'I'm gonna buy this place and burn it down,
I'm gonna put it six feet underground.'
You said 'I'm gonna buy this place and watch it fall,
Stand here beside me baby in the crumbling walls.'

Oh I'm gonna buy this place and start a fire,
Stand here until I fill all your hearts desire.
'Cause I'm gonna buy this place and see it burn,
And do back the things it did to you in return.

You said 'I'm gonna buy a gun and start a war,
If you can tell me something worth fighting for.'
Oh and I'm gonna buy this place is what I said,
Blame it upon a rush of blood to the head.

For me.
All the movements have started to fade,
See me crumble and fall on my face.
And I know the mistakes that I've made,
See it all disappear without trace.
And they call us, they beckon you on,
They said 'start as you mean to go on.'

You said 'I'm gonna buy this place and see it go,
Stand here beside me baby, watch the orange glow.'
Some will laugh and some just sit and cry,
But you just sit down there and you wonder why.

So I'm gonna buy a gun and start a war,
If you can tell me something worth fighting for.
And I'm gonna buy this place is what I said,
Blame it upon a rush of blood to the head, oh to the head.

For me.
All the movements have started to fade,
See me crumble and fall on my face.
And I know the mistakes that I've made,
See it all disappear without trace.
And they call us, they beckon you on,
They said 'start as you mean to go on.'

So meet me by the bridge,
Meet me by the lake,
When am I going to see,
That pretty face again?
Meet me on the road,
Meet me where I stand,
Blame it all upon a rush of blood to the head.

Amsterdam

Come on, oh my star is fading
And I swerve out of control
And if I, if I'd only waited
I'd not be stuck here in this hole

Come here, of my star is fading
And I swerve out of control
And I swear I waited and waited
I've got to get out of this hole

But time is on your side
It's on your side
Now I'm pushing you down
And all around
It's no cause for concern

Come on, oh my star is fading
And I see no chance of release
I know I'm dead on the surface
But I'm screaming underneath

And time is on your side
It's on your side now
Not pushing you down
And all around
Oh, it's no cause for concern

Stuck on the end of this ball and chain
And I'm on my way back down again
Stood on the edge; tied to a noose
Sick to the stomach
Say what you mean but it won't change a thing
I'm sick of the secrets
Stood on the edge; tied to the noose
And you came along and you cut me loose
