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!

    I don’t have any idea what I would be if I didn’t know this Girl. The way she makes me see life and look at life is just breath gasping, because I wouldn’t be anything without her. I would have no insight of such a Girl so therefore I would be a piece of driftwood, being plunged from shore to shore, I just don’t know what the odds were of me finding this Girl , I just will never believe how I did it, what this Girl tells me and opens up my eyes to about the special things in life, the attributes of life the Girl is a Goddess, she makes me feel whole, she makes me see all the good in people and all the good in all areas of life, without her I would have such little knowledge but my own. She makes me feel like lightening, she makes me feel how every man wants to feel, she makes me feel so worthy and so alive, she makes me feel like the world is a really good place, she makes me wonder how God created such a soul, she makes me realize there is good in everyone, she makes e so many of the things people don’t see, with her I can see clearly, with her I can hear the Desire and hear the ambition in people’s eyes, with her I have so many of the answers for myself and the world that people spend years upon years of finding, with her I feel like a God, with her I feel so happy and good, with her there is this star there that is shining so brightly as a representation of my love for her.

    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.

    This song to my own personal understanding and viewing is about someone who has held a lot of hurt for a very long time inside of them, over time that hurt has built up and up and that person has become so hurt inside that it forms into an anger and a hatred. That person is calling out from inside for help, but cannot turn to anyone for it because that person has to be the one that person gives themselves to, to fall in love with because they have never been helped or felt cared for in their life. THerefore until that person is assured the peson he wants to give it to is the right person he has to hold it inside because otherwise it will come out to the wrong person. The song tells us a lot about the hurt inside, " and I know I'm dead on the surface, But I am screaming underneath." The song explains the person has become so hurt and tired the point of giving up has found them but beofre they have given up completely on their lives, a whole new life for them is created through happines because someone they love has come into their lives and has saved them from it. by helping them and lifitng them up and for this they will lalways be repayed for it with the lvove that has become a result of the pain.
