Us Against The World

[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGlqmn2HSTk]YouTube - ‪Coldplay- " Us Against the World " HQ Live @ Rock am Ring festival : Nürburgring, Germany‬‏[/ame]

 

Oh morning come bursting, the clouds, they move.

Lift off this blindfold, let me see again.

And bring back the water that your ships will rid, in my heart, she left (alone/un-whole)*

The tightrope that I'm walking, just sways and ties.

The devil, as he's talking, with those angel's eyes.

And I just wanna be there when the lightning strikes.

(And the Saints gone, what to do?)

And sing slow it down,

Through the chaos as it swirls,*

It's us against the world.

Like a river to a raindrop,

I lost a friend.

My drunkenness isn't (beggin') in a lion's den.

And tonight I know it all has to begin again,

So whatever you do,

Don't let go.

And if we float away,

Fly up to the surface, and just start again.

Lift off with no trouble.

Just erodes in the rain.*

Just sing slow-ow-ow-ow it down.

Oh slow-ow-ow-ow it down.

(instrumental)

Through the chaos as it swirls,*

It's us against the world.

Through the chaos as it swirls,*

It's us against the world.

99% sure that these are the real lyrics (I can't tell what it says exactly in the line with the lion's den, but everything else should be correct):

 

Oh morning come bursting, the clouds, they break

Lift off this blindfold, let me see again

And bring back the water, let your ships row in

In my heart you left a hole

 

The tightrope that I’m walking just sways and ties

The devil as he’s talking with those angel’s eye

And I just want to be there when the lightning strikes

And the saints go marching in

 

And sing slow it down

 

Through chaos as it swirls

It’s us against the world

 

Like a river to a raindrop, I lost a friend

My _____ (h)as a Daniel in a lion’s den

And tonight I know it all has to begin again

So whatever you do, don’t let go

 

And if we could float away

Fly up to the surface and just start again

And lift off before trouble just erodes us in the rain

Just erodes us in the rain

Just erodes us, just erodes us in the rain

 

Sing slow it down

Slow it down

 

Through chaos as it swirls

It’s just us against the world

 

Through chaos as it swirls

It’s us against the world

I agree with the Erodes us in the rain actually!

That sounds correct, I really couldn't make it out last night and I could of sworn it sounded like roses, but now I can hear the erodes us, I'm going to update my lyrics to that. I still have absolutely no clue with the "Lion's den" line though and that "saints one"... :uhoh:

And bring back the water, let your ships row in I think it might be "that your ships rode in" instead

In my heart you left a hole

 

The tightrope that I’m walking just sways and ties

The devil as he’s talking with those angel’s eye

And I just want to be there when the lightning strikes

My _____ (h)as a Daniel in a lion’s den I'm drunken as a ?? in a lion's den?? (I have no idea on this on :uhoh:)

And tonight I know it all has to begin again

So whatever you do, don’t let go

 

And if we could float away

Fly up to the surface and just start again

And lift off before trouble just erodes us in the rain

Just erodes us in the rain

Just erodes us, just erodes us in the rain

 

Sing slow it down

Slow it down

 

Through chaos as it swirls

It’s just us against the world

 

Through chaos as it swirls

It’s us against the world

 

I think that's pretty much correct, except for the part about the lion's den. Amazing song, although I think it could sound even better on piano :awesome:

Us Against The World

 

Oh morning come bursting, the clouds, they move.

Lift off this blindfold, let me see again.

And bring back the water that your ships will rid, in my heart, she left (alone/un-whole)*

The tightrope that I'm walking, just sways and ties.

The devil, as he's talking, with those angel's eyes.

And I just wanna be there when the lightning strikes.

(And the Saints gone, what to do?)

And sing slow it down,

Through the chaos as it swirls,*

It's us against the world.

Like a river to a raindrop,

I lost a friend.

My drunkenness isn't (beggin') in a lion's den.

And tonight I know it all has to begin again,

So whatever you do,

Don't let go.

And if we float away,

Fly up to the surface, and just start again.

Just erodes in the rain.*

Just sing slow-ow-ow-ow it down.

Oh slow-ow-ow-ow it down.

(instrumental)

Through the chaos as it swirls,*

It's us against the world.

Through the chaos as it swirls,*

It's us against the world.

 

LOL! I thought he's been saying, "And I'm going to haul ass to begin again". I was thinking, "There is no way that's what he said."

 

Thanks for the clarification, even if these are just guesses.

My drunken as a Daniel in a lion's den.

So whatever you do,

Don't let go.

And if we could float away,

Fly up to the surface, we just start again.

And Lift off people trouble.

Just erodes us in the rain.*

Just sing slow-ow-ow-ow it down.

Oh slow-ow-ow-ow it down.

(instrumental)

Through the chaos as it swirls,*

It's us against the world.

Pretty sure it's "drunken as a beggar in a lion's den"

 

The lyrics to this are so beautiful, just shows what he can do when he writes from the heart.

 

 

 

Hrmm, that one could work also! :lol:

 

"My drunken head's a devil in a lion's den"

 

or

 

"I'm drunken as a beggar in a lion's den"

 

:uhoh:

"Daniel in a lion's den" has a lot of sense, I've found out it's a reference to the Old Testament of the Bible:

 

In the Deuterocanonical portion of Daniel known as Bel and the Dragon, the prophet Habakkuk is miraculously transported by an angel to take a meal to Daniel while he is in the lions' den.

 

From: Wikipedia - Daniel, the prophet

 

Wow :stunned:

I'm doing this for all the songs, here is my interpretation ;) ... what do you think?

 

Oh morning come bursting, the clouds, they left.

Lift off this blindfold, let me see again.

And bring back the water that your ships role in, in my heart you left a hole.

 

The tightrope that I'm walking, just sways and ties.

The devil, as he's talking, with those angel's eyes.

And I just wanna be there when the lightning strikes.

And the Saints go marchin in

 

And sing slow it down,

Through the chaos as it swirls

It's just us against the world.

 

Like a river to a raindrop,

I lost a friend.

My drunken as a Daniel in a lion's den.

And tonight I know it all has to begin again,

So whatever you do, Don't let go.

 

And if we could float away,

Fly up to the surface, and just start again.

And Lift off people trouble.

Just erodes us in the rain,

Just erodes us in the rain,

Just erodes us into roses in the rain

 

Just sing slow-ow-ow-ow it down.

Oh slow-ow-ow-ow it down.

 

Through the chaos as it swirls,

It's us against the world.

Through the chaos as it swirls,

It's us against the world.
