What are the official lyrics in the chorus?

We're gonna get it, get it together right now

Gonna get it, get it together somehow

Gonna get it, get it together and flower

We're gonna get it, get it together I know

Gonna get it, get it together and flow

Gonna get it, get it together and go up and up

Regarding the crappy piano sounds... I've noticed the pianos in general sound more lo-fi on this album. That's not a bad thing necessarily; Chris chose to tour with a keyboard sound from 1999 (kawaii mp9000) from 2002-2012 on his yamaha Gt20 controller. The real upright piano they use now doesn't sound better or worse... just different. I'd say it's an artistic choice on these recordings and it doesn't really bother me.

I was super disappointed on my first listen. It's grown on me since, and I do have to say the thing I love most about it is the transition from Chris to Jonny's solo. It flows well and seems like DAAHF's cousin in that regard. I still prefer the live version, but things change. I remember hating the studio version of HLH back in the day and now it's all I can listen to!

who sings 'believe in love', the last line of the song? Is it Annabelle Wallis? Interesting choice. Also, which of the solos in the song is Jonny's and which is Noel's?

At first I thought Noel was the first one, but the 2nd one sounds like classic Noel as he bends the notes. However Chris did say in an interview he wanted Jonny to do a solo like Noel and Noel to do one like Jonny...so I am not sure!

This track is outstanding.

Everything I had read here led me to believe this was ruined and inferior to the live version. Not true.

I thought the piano was all but gone.

Again - so far from the truth.

This (along with Amazing Day) is one of my least favourites on the album.... but maybe I need to experience it live (just skimmed through the comments). The rest of the record is a stellar effort. Anyone else notice the "aah-aaah-aaaah"s also appear in the song 'Keep On Moving' by Five? Haha.

I loved the liver version of the song. I thought to be a lock-in favorite on the album. Now, I'm not sure. It's a great piece but I thought the live version was better than the studio version.

This is so true and in the beginning I was nearly upset! But now that I´ve listened to the album a few times one track after the other I can see how the production on Up&Up fits with the rest. If they had gone for the live version and crescendo exploding piano in the end, it would have been great but out of sync with the album as a whole imo.

I really appreciate how they made the 'Believe in love' line so subtle at the end of the song. Yes, if you hear the studio version before hearing the live version and know nothing about the end, you probably wouldn't even recognize it. But once you know it's there and can hear the words, it becomes really special. It's like you're waking up from a dream, and the final message is almost subliminal.

 

One thing I love about Coldplay is that they can take a lovely ending like that and make you feel a whole different way about it live. And both versions can be great in their own ways.

Really? I'm almost certain the first solo is Noel's! The second one to me sounds very like a Jonny solo.

OK, it's definitely growing on me. But probably due to the guitar solos... that's the best part of the track. Really looking forward to seeing/hearing it live. I can imagine the Manchester dates will be special, Noel will probably join!

I would be shocked if Noels solos isn't the second one. It sounds like classic Oasis.

 

But Jonny played Noelesque and Noel play Jonnyesque , right? So we kinda have to switch them to find out who played what hehe

Official:

 

Up&Up

 

 

 

fixing up a car to drive in it again

searching for the water hoping for the rain

up and up, up and up

down upon the canvas, working meal to meal

waiting for a chance to pick your orange field

up and up, up and up

see a pearl form, a diamond in the rough

see a bird soaring high above the flood

it’s in your blood, it’s in your blood

underneath the storm an umbrella is saying

sitting with the poison takes away the pain

up and up, up and up it’s saying

 

we’re going to get it get it together right now

going to get it get it together somehow

going to get it get it together and flower

oh oh oh oh oh oh

we’re going to get it get it together I know

going to get it get it together and flow

going to get it get it together and go

up and up and up

 

lying in the gutter, aiming for the moon

trying to empty out the ocean with a spoon

up and up, up and up

how come people suffer how come people part?

how come people struggle how come people break your heart?

break your heart

yes I want to grow yes I want to feel

yes I want to know show me how to heal it up

heal it up

see the forest there in every seed

angels in the marble waiting to be freed

just need love just need love

when the going is rough saying

 

we’re going to get it get it together right now

going to get it get it together somehow

going to get it get it together and flower

oh oh oh oh oh oh

we’re going to get it get it together I know

going to get it get it together and flow

going to get it get it together and go

up and up and up

 

and you can say what is, or fight for it

close your mind or take a risk

you can say it’s mine and clench your fist

or see each sunrise as a gift

 

we’re going to get it get it together right now

going to get it get it together somehow

going to get it get it together and flower

oh oh oh oh oh oh

we’re going to get it get it together I know

going to get it get it together and flow

going to get it get it together and go

up and up and up

 

we’re going to get it get it together right now

going to get it get it together somehow

going to get it get it together and flower

oh oh oh oh oh oh

we’re going to get it get it together I know

going to get it get it together and flow

going to get it get it together and go

 

up and up and up

 

oh-oh oh, oh-oh oh oh oh oh

 

fixing up a car to drive in it again

when you’re in pain

when you think you’ve had enough

don’t ever give up

don’t ever give up

And they say Coldplay lyrics are going downhill. This is actually inspiring

Beautiful lyrics indeed!

 

My uneducated guess would be that Noel's solo is the first one. Will they ever resolve this mystery?
