Come on, oh my star is fading
And I swerve out of control
If I, if I'd only waited
I'd not be stuck here in this hole

Come here, oh my star is fading
And I swerve out of control
And I swear I waited and waited
I've got to get out of this hole

But time is on your side
It's on your side now
Not pushing you down and all around
It's no cause for concern

Come on, oh my star is fading
And I see no chance of release
And I know I'm dead on the surface
But I am screaming underneath

And time is on your side
It's on your side now
Not pushing you down and all around
No it's no cause for concern

Stuck on the end of this ball and chain
And I'm on my way back down again
Stood on a bridge, tied to a noose
Sick to the stomach
You can say what you mean
But it won't change a thing
I'm sick of the secrets
Stood on the edge, tied to a noose
You came along and you cut me loose
You came along and you cut me loose
You came along and you cut me loose.

    To liveanddieforcoldplay, I´m glad how you feel about that girl and I hope that it will stay forever and that nothing will come between you 2. I know the feeling so well and I know how great it feels! For us it feels like a kind of heaven on earth and I think it´s beautifull how you put it in words, I was never aible to do that because I always thought there were no words for this special kind of feeling.
    I hope you enjoy it because, every day it can come to an end. Such as I noticed it. Because my special love has been killed in an car accident, a car came and took away his life and mine and the ones of our kids that we always wanted to have.
    Enjoy it for as long as it will last.

    Btw. Beautifull song Coldplay!

    If I had never found this Girl then I would not see life so clearly, I would be a lot more wounded than I already am, I have never met someone so beautiful on the inside, I don't think I ever will, the way this Girl makes me see life in General, the potential it has and the potential in everyone and everything because if I have met someone with so many attributes and someone who makes me see life the way she makes me see it then I have found the human that is living proof to the potential of everything.
