Coldplay – Death And All His Friends lyrics

All winter
We got carried
Oh
Way over on the rooftops
Let's get married
All summer we just hurried
So come over
Just be patient
And don't worry
So come over
Just be patient
And don't worry

So come over
Just be patient
And don't worry
And don't worry

No I don't wanna battle
From beginning to end
I don't wanna cycle
Recycle revenge
I don't wanna follow
Death and all his friends

No I don't wanna battle
From beginning to end
I don't wanna cycle
Recycle revenge
I don't wanna follow
Death and all of his friends

    I think chris loves his job and wants everybody to feel loved! That's what a true band should be about. Giving messages to those who feel lonely. When I heard this song I cried because at that moment I felt like somebody cared for me. I met chris once after a concert and he was the sweetest guy ever. I told him how much his music meant to me and he let out the biggest smile I have ever seen and his face just glowed. He thanked me for being a fan of his. He told me if he inspired one person he could inspire everybody. I'm sure he appreciates all of you and your loyalty to the band. *^-^*

    This song is about lovers who experienced the height of love in the winter (we got carried way over the rooftops). They rushed into marriage (let's get married). The winter signifies that even if everything else was dead, they were alive and high on love(over the rooftops). Then they rushed through life (all summer we just hurried) and in their busy life, love was forsaken. Then they started to fight badly and he didn't want it to continue (I don't want to battle from beginning to end). He knew it would lead to a cycle of revenge where you hurt me and I hurt you. Death and it's friends were trying to end their love and he wasn't going to follow (I don't want to follow death and all his friends). Instead, he begged his lover to not be distant, but draw close to him (come on over). He wanted his love to be patient with their relationship (don't worry), and enjoy the comfort his love (come on over).

    The words of this song has significant meaning to me as my son (in hospice) and now a good friend of mine (cancer relapse) are battling terminal diagnoses. It projects what my son refuses to do - he wont give up, he wont die from beginning to end (don't want to battle = wants to live). He wants to live from beginning to end - he will not follow death and all his friends (even though they've tried to carry him away many times) It's about having a stronger will than death, even despite a certain death sentence. It's like Dylan Thomas poem = . Do not go gentle into the good night. Rage, rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    I feel like what they're trying to say here is that we should all just live our lives with a carefree outlook. And we should not succumb ourselves to the vicious cycle that the world has such as revenge because it would only lead us to death, plain death and not a death that comes after a meaningful life. That's what the song is saying to me. We are entitled to our own interpretation so this is just an opinion. By the way, those who commented awfully, you probably haven't heard the music and just read the lines above without listening.

    I recognized the messages in the music and a moment of clarity came to me and without thinking I pounced on it not realizing I was being too hasty. The more I listened the more I learned everything it was the most surreal, fascinating, experience of my life I found myself because of you guys you guys are the four horseman we really are going to change the world. Tears are streaming down my face.
