Song Lyric Sunday – A Head Full of Dreams by Coldplay

I’ve posted a Coldplay song before, and I remember when I was researching that post, I thought it would be so much fun to see them live.  I didn’t buy tickets and I wasn’t planning on going when they came into town, but my company has a suite at the venue they played in, and ten minutes before the end of work on the day before the concert, my boss walked over to my desk and just handed me two tickets.

I was so excited!  I texted my fiance to see if he wanted to go with me, but his first response was, “Who’s Coldplay?”  So, I told him I was going to take my son instead. Andru knew and liked a grand total of one song by Coldplay, but he was just as excited as I was when I told him.

At first, Andru wouldn’t stand up, but I was on my feet for 90% of the two hours they played.  It was such a great concert!  Andru finally stood up about half way through and he stayed on his feet through the rest of it (especially after they finally played “his” song).

I love what they stand for and the message they spread.  I realized at the concert, though, that many of the songs I knew and liked were older.  They played this song at the concert, but I hadn’t heard it before.  It is such a brilliant song, though, and I hope you guys like it as much as I do!

Lyrics found at

oh I think I landed
in a world I hadn’t seen
when I’m feeling ordinary
when I don’t know what I mean

oh I think I landed
where there are miracles at work
for the thirst and for the hunger
come the conference of birds

saying it’s true, it’s not what it seems
leave your broken windows open
and in the light just streams
and you get a head, a head full of dreams
you can see the change you wanted
be what you want to be
and you get a head, a head full of dreams
into life I’ve just been spoken
with a head full, a head full of dreams

oh I think I landed
where there are miracles at work
when you got me open-handed
when you got me lost for words
I sing oh-oh-oh

A head full of dreams
A head full of dreams
Into life I’ve just been woken
With a head full, a head full of dreams
