Here we go again guys... (thanks for the parcial lyrics, felicote :))
I made some edits in felicote's lyrics.

As usual, underscores means I don't know, (???) means I'm not sure of it, square brackets means another possiblity.

At _____ you'd go walking
'Til the breaking of the day (???)
The morning is for sleeping

Through the dark streets they go searching
To see God in their own way
Save the night time for your weeping
Your weeping

Singing La la la la la la laaeey
And the night over London ____

So we rolled down to the river
With a towel to go swimming (???)
Further curses to be broken

We go wonder neath the arches
Where the witches are missing (???)
There are Ghost Towns in the ocean
The ocean

Singing La la la la la la laaeey
And the night over London ____

(Guitar Solo)

God is in the houses
And God is in my head
And all the cemeteries in London

I say "God come in my garden" [I see God come in my garder] (???)
but I dont know what He said
For my ____ wasn't open
Not open

Singing la la la la la la laaeey
And the night over London ____
Singing la la la la la la laaeey
There's no light over London today

Bold text are the lyric changes that I heard:


At night they would go walking
'Til the breaking of the day
The morning is for sleeping

Through the dark streets they go searching
To see God in their own way
Save the night time for your weeping
Your weeping

Singing La la la la la la laaeey
And the night over London hey

So we rode down to the river
With a towel to go swimming (???)- I want to know what he says after "With a..." it's bugging me!
Further curses to be broken

We go wander neath the arches
Where the witches are missing
There are Ghost Towns in the ocean
The ocean

Singing La la la la la la laaeey
And the night over London hey

(Guitar Solo)

God is in the houses
And God is in my head
And all the cemeteries in London

I say "God come in my garden"
but I dont know what He said
For my heart(???) wasn't open
Not open

Singing la la la la la la laaeey
And the night over London hey
Singing la la la la la la laaeey
There's no light over London today

This is what I hear:

At night they would go walking
'Til the breaking of the day
The morning is for sleeping

Through the dark streets they go searching
To see God in their own way
Save the night time for your weeping
Your weeping

Singing La la la la la la laaeey
And the night over London lay

So we rode down to the river
With a towel to go swimming (???) Definitely not, but I can't hear what it is. Really frustrating :\
For their curses to be broken

We go wander 'neath the arches
Where the witches are missing
There are Ghost Towns in the ocean
The ocean

Singing La la la la la la laaeey
And the night over London lay

(Guitar Solo)

God is in the houses
And God is in my head
And all the cemeteries in London

I say "God come in my garden"
but I dont know what He said
For my heart wasn't open
Not open

Singing la la la la la la laaeey
And the night over London lay
Singing la la la la la la laaeey
There's no light over London today

I think that "With a towel to go swimming" is wrong too. The "towel" part i'm sure it's right, but IDK if it's "swimming", AAARGH, IT'S KILLING ME :veryangry2:

this is what i got

So we rode down to the river
Where the toiling ghosts spring (not sure about "toiling")
For their curses to be broken

This is closest to what I'm hearing, too! I thought it was "swing" instead of "spring" at first, but spring makes more sense in context :)

I think the final version is this

At night they'd go walking
'Til the breaking of the day
The morning is for sleeping

Through the dark streets they go searching
To see God in their own way
Save the night time for your weeping
Your weeping

Singing La la la la la la laaeey
And the night over London, hey

So we rode down to the river
Where the toiling ghosts spring
For their curses to be broken

We go wonder 'neath the arches
Where the witches are missing
There are Ghost Towns in the ocean
The ocean

Singing La la la la la la laaeey
And the night over London lay

(Guitar Solo)

God is in the houses
And God is in my head
And all the cemeteries in London

I see God come in my garden
but I dont know what He said
For my heart wasn't open
Not open

Singing la la la la la la laaeey
And the night over London lay
Singing la la la la la la laaeey
There's no light over London today
Consense? Tell it now, or object forever!

here are the lyrics from WikiColdplay:

http://wiki.coldplaying.com/index.php/Cemeteries_Of_London

At night they would go walking ‘til the breaking of the day,
The morning is for sleeping
Through the dark streets they go searching to see God in their own way,
Save the nighttime for your weeping
Your weeping

Singing la lalalalala la lé...
And the night over London lay

So we rode down to the river where the toiling ghosts spring,
For their curses to be broken
We’d go underneath the arches where the witches are in the saying,
There are ghost towns in the ocean
The ocean

Singing la lalalalala la lé...
And the night over London lay

God is in the houses and God is in my head, and all the cemeteries in London
I see God come in my garden, but I don’t know what he said,
For my heart it wasn’t open
Not open

Singing la lalalalala la lé...
And the night over London lay

Singing la lalalalala la lé...
There’s no light over London today…

For their curses to be broken

imo

at night they would go walking till the breaking of the day
the morning is for sleeping
through the dark streets they'd go searching to see god in their own way
save the night time for your weepin'
your weeping

singing la la la la la la la la lay
and the night over london lay

so we rode down to the river
where victorian ghosts pray (rofl at suggestions)
for their curses to be broken
we'd go underneath the arches (under/wander?)
where the witches are and they say
there are ghosts towns in the ocean
the ocean

singing...

(Gtr solo - which is fn awesome)

God is in the houses
And God is in my head
And all the cemeteries of london

I see God come in my garden
but I don't know what he said
for my heart it wasn't open
not open

singing...
singing... there's no light over london today
