UPDATE: And finally the confirmation at Coldplay.com that the single Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall will be released this Friday (between Saturday and Sunday for UK :( )!



Official Lyrics:

I TURN THE MUSIC UP, I GOT MY RECORDS ON
I SHUT THE WORLD OUTSIDE UNTIL THE LIGHTS COME ON
MAYBE THE STREETS ALIGHT, MAYBE THE TREES ARE GONE
I FEEL MY HEART START BEATING TO MY FAVOURITE SONG

AND ALL THE KIDS THEY DANCE, ALL THE KIDS ALL NIGHT
UNTIL MONDAY MORNING FEELS ANOTHER LIFE
I TURN THE MUSIC UP
I'M ON A ROLL THIS TIME
AND HEAVEN IS IN SIGHT

I TURN THE MUSIC UP, I GOT MY RECORDS ON
FROM UNDERNEATH THE RUBBLE SING A REBEL SONG
DON'T WANT TO SEE ANOTHER GENERATION DROP
I'D RATHER BE A COMMA THAN A FULL STOP

MAYBE I'M IN THE BLACK, MAYBE I'M ON MY KNEES
MAYBE I'M IN THE GAP BETWEEN THE TWO TRAPEZES
BUT MY HEART IS BEATING AND MY PULSES START
CATHEDRALS IN MY HEART

AND WE SAW OH THIS LIGHT I SWEAR YOU, EMERGE BLINKING INTO
TO TELL ME IT'S ALRIGHT
AS WE SOAR WALLS, EVERY SIREN IS A SYMPHONY
AND EVERY TEAR'S A WATERFALL
IS A WATERFALL
OH
IS A WATERFALL
OH OH OH
IS A IS A WATERFALL
EVERY TEAR
IS A WATERFALL
OH OH OH

SO YOU CAN HURT, HURT ME BAD
BUT STILL I'LL RAISE THE FLAG

OH
IT WAS A WA WA WA WA WA-ATERFALL
A WA WA WA WA WA-ATERFALL

EVERY TEAR
EVERY TEAR
EVERY TEARDROP IS A WATERFALL

EVERY TEAR
EVERY TEAR
EVERY TEARDROP IS A WATERFALL

Over the past couple of days Coldplay have been leaving cryptic posts on various social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, Ping..) with videos and various GIF images containing what appear to be future lyrics of an upcoming single or song from LP5. The images and video are below


So far we have:

I turn the music up
I got my records on
I shut the world outside until the lights come on

Maybe the streets alight
Maybe the trees are gone
I feel my heart start beating to my favourite song

And all the kids they dance
All the kids all night
Until Monday morning feels another life

I turn the music up
I'm on a roll this time
and heaven is in sight

I turn the music up
I got my records on
From underneath the rubble sing a rebel song
Don't wanna see another generation drop
I'd rather be a comma than a full stop

Maybe I'm in the black
Maybe I'm on my knees
Maybe I'm in the gap
Between two trapezes

But my heart is beating and my pulses start
Cathedrals in my heart
And we saw oh this light
I swear you, emerge blinking into to tell me it's alright
As we soar walls, every siren is a symphony
And every tear's a waterfall


UPDATE: Reversing the audio of the final video sounds like what the actual bass riff should be.. you can download here

I did download the 720p version and made screencaps tho, here they are (clickable thumbnails):













The second "kids" seems to be next to "night", you can see a darker shadow in the shape of the star constellation on the right corner. :)

This would've been the best track on Viva la Vida.

The walking guy in colour is strangely addictive. Looks like the result of someone somehow transferring themselves into a lost video game world.

you're right. If indeed it is lyrics. Not the best Coldplay lyrics. But as always, we have to wait and see.

The lyrics sound like something Noel Gallagher would conceive.

The title of this video could be: The sound of silence (but Simon & Garfunkel made a song with that title).

Could "I turn the music up/I got my records on/I shut the world outside until the lights come on" be the album name? A-la Mew?

I really took my time before pushing play, thinking "this is it! new Coldplay sounds". And was kind of disappointed, even though the colourful man look cool.
