Song Lyric Sunday – Paradise by Coldplay

Coldplay is an amazing band and I’ve always loved them.  I had a certain song in mind when I started writing this post, but then I kept listening to all the songs I love and it got to a point I really couldn’t decide.  I think that’s why I love lyrics so much though.  I finally decided to go with the one that spoke to my heart in a way that the others didn’t.

Sometimes you hear a song and it sounds like they are singing about you, your struggles, your life… that’s what I felt when I read the lyrics to this song and listened to it again today.  The lyric “and so lying underneath those stormy skies, she’d say, ‘oh, ohohohoh I know the sun must set to rise'” is amazing and brought tears to my eyes.  I’ve had a pretty stormy life, but there have been moments of paradise along the way.  Sometimes I believe that’s the best we can hope for.

But, don’t stop dreaming because sometimes the sun rises and your life is the peaceful paradise you always dreamed of.

Feel free to post a Coldplay song (because I just can’t get enough of them!) or a song that speaks to your heart and tells your life story.  I love sharing music and appreciate those who share music with me every Sunday, and for those of you who just started.

Paradise by Coldplay
Written by Colplay
Lyrics found at AZ Lyrics

When she was just a girl
She expected the world
But it flew away from her reach so
She ran away in her sleep
And dreamed of
Para-para-paradise, Para-para-paradise, Para-para-paradise
Every time she closed her eyes

When she was just a girl
She expected the world
But it flew away from her reach
And the bullets catch in her teeth
Life goes on, it gets so heavy
The wheel breaks the butterfly
Every tear a waterfall
In the night the stormy night she’ll close her eyes
In the night the stormy night away she’d fly

And dreams of
Para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise
Oh oh oh oh oh oh-oh-oh
She’d dream of
Para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise
Oh oh oh oh oh oh-oh-oh-oh

Lalalalalalalalalalala
And so lying underneath those stormy skies
She’d say, “oh, ohohohoh I know the sun must set to rise”

This could be
Para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise
Oh oh oh oh oh oh-oh-oh

This could be
Para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise
Oh oh oh oh oh oh-oh-oh

This could be
Para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise
Oh oh oh oh oh oh-oh-oh
