Hey guys. First of all, thanks for all the support you brought to France, and especially here to French Coldplayers like me.

I live a mile away from the Bataclan (where the concert took place) and I heard some gunshots yesterday night. It was terrifying.

I felt like writing some few words for the victims... because I'm french, and because I felt inspired by Chris's Fly On performance yesterday as I was watching the news...


Feels then payback

Wish we could live in a world where all the flags have the same color,
So maybe we wouldn't have to deal with that much horror,

And I pray, oh I pray for you my friends I never knew,
Trust me I'm not one of these who will forget about you,

So light up a candle tonight and put it at your window,
That's a simple way to honour them and to show,

How strong our prayers and thoughts converge as one,
And through the night I've changed my tone,

We don't wanna feel the dirt on our knees anymore,
Blood on our sidewalks you'll have to pay for.

Take care friends around the world !

I wanna have fun but I still feel like mourning. Thankfully no one I know has been hurt, but I'm really sad about all this obviously. And moved by the reactions all around the world.

Thank you for starting this thread. I was going back and forth to start a thread in the news section about the horrible events of yesterday. I just could not bring myself to do it. It was just too upsetting. This seems much more appropriate. We wish all of France much love.

Very inspiring words, we all have to stand together now no matter what color race or belief. Only collective love, respect and acceptance can erase hate and violence agains innocent. Keep strong

This thread moved me so much, thank you so much for creating this! I have a lot of good friends in France so I've been sick with worry for the last 2 days...


I hearby light my own candle in the form of a drawing.

A tribute to the victims, I don't know if this is appropriate but I had to draw this

I think no art is inappropriate if it's meant as a way to support people. Beautiful drawing. And great poem.

French people, our thoughts go out to you and your country. (Céline, I'm glad to hear you and your friends/family are OK.) I hope no one gives up their faith in humanity, and everyone is able to find comfort in music in the future, in spite of what happened at the concert.

This thread is the proof there's love and hope in the world. Fans around the world are united to give strength to anyone who needs it. French coldplayers my thoughts are with you. Joueur your words say what I'm feeling even when I'm in the other side of the world. Stay strong and stay safe.

I hardly know what to say - words never seem enough. But I just wanted to be added to this thread.
To all the people in the beautiful city of Paris - I send my love and hope for a peaceful future.
