Christmas night
Another fight
Tears we cried a flood
Got all kinds of poison in
Of poison in my blood


Took my feet
To Oxford street
Trying to right a wrong

"Just walk away", those windows say
But I can't believe she's gone


When you're still waiting for the snow to fall
It doesn't really feel like Christmas at all

Up above candles on air flicker
Oh they flicker and they flow
And I'm up here holding on to all those chandeliers of hope

Like some drunken Elvis singing
I go singing out of tune
Singing how I always loved you darling
And I always will

Oh when you're still waiting for the snow to fall
It doesn't really feel like Christmas at all
Still waiting for the snow to fall
It doesn't really feel like Christmas at all

Those Christmas lights
Light up the street
Down where the sea and city meet
May all your troubles soon be gone
Oh Christmas lights
Keep shining on

Those Christmas lights
Light up the street
Maybe they'll bring her back to me
Then all my troubles will be gone
Oh Christmas lights
Keep shining on

Oh woah oh oh oh oh oho

Oh Christmas lights
Light up the street
Light up the fireworks in me
May all your troubles soon be gone
Those Christmas lights
Keep shining on

    Just listened and watched the video today loved it haven't seen Coldplay in awhile or maybe I've been too busy to check their stuff out anyway, I love it a great song. Chris looks different with his hair all gone though

    The snow falling represents to him the hope and joy of christmas. His love not being with him is like the snow not falling. But, the christmas lights, the candles (not cameras), the chandeliers, they all give him just enough hope to keep holding on. He hopes they will revive him to keep going til he sees his troubles gone.

    For some reason, i see it into my childhood, where christmas is painful for me because my mother chose a man over her own offsprings... It's hard to deal with that memory... So i see it as separating from her... Idk it just mostly speak in the first few lyrics, another fight... Ily coldplay
