Coldplay – Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall lyrics

I turn the music up, I got my records on
I shut the world outside until the lights come on
Maybe the streets alight, maybe the trees are gone
But I feel my heart start beating to my favorite song

And all the kids they dance, all the kids all night
Until Monday morning feels another life
I turn the music up, I'm on a roll this time
And heaven is in sight, Ooh

I turn the music up, I got my records on
From underneath the rubble sing a rebel song
Don't want to see another generation drop
I'd rather be a comma than a full stop

Maybe I'm in the black, maybe I'm on my knees
Maybe I'm in the gap between the two trapezes
But my heart is beating and my pulses start
Cathedrals in my heart

As we saw, oh, this light
I swear you emerge blinking into
To tell me it's alright

As we soar walls
Every siren is a symphony
And every tear's a waterfall

Is a waterfall, ah
Is a waterfall, ah
Is a waterfall
Every tear is a waterfall, ah

So you can hurt, hurt me bad
But still I'll raise the flag, Wooh

It was a wa-ah-ah-ah-aterfall
A wa-ah-ah-ah-aterfall

Oh, Oh

Every tear
Every tear
Every teardrop is a waterfall

Oh, Oh

Every tear
Every tear
Every teardrop is a waterfall

Every tear
Every tear
Every teardrop is a waterfall

Every tear
Every tear
Every teardrop is a waterfall

    My little brother passed away on sunday and he loved coldplay. This song was one that he played a lot. And so, the meaning of this song for me is: you may be gone, and tears may fall in waterfalls, but no matter where you stand, you can look up and see heaven. Heaven is where my brother dwells--and so, when I look up to heaven, I see him, my every teardrop for him will be waterfall.

    This song to me means every ordinary being has great meaning and purposes regardless its size and form, and that they all have the rights to express themselves in whatever way they want. It should be celebrated that every sentient soul is capable of feeling its own existence and every little emotion symbolizes the significance of its mental and intellectual interaction with the cosmos. Therefore, every teardrop is a waterfall.

    I think this song is a description of how every emotion we have feels so enormous to us. Whether a teardrop is for happiness or sadness, you have an extreme of that emotion to produce a tear, so it's a very important and very beautiful thing, like a waterfall :) I think the beginning of the song is a description of how music can encapsulate your emotions and have a massive effect on them, like music does to me :)
    Just what this song means to me :)

    There is meaning in every sound and in everything. There may just be beauty is what we may perceive as ugly or painful. Whether we are highly successful, or struggling to get by, we all have rough moments, but it will be alright. We should not let those tough times pull us down. But we should be grateful for those moments too. Appreciate that we have another chance to live life to the fullest. Appreciate that you are just hitting a rough patch rather than nearing the dead end. Waterfalls are beautiful after all.

    In the midst of trials and times where we don't know if there's a purpose or a meaning behind it all, this song reminds us of that one moment where we realize that we do have the strength to go on. That beautiful side of indignation that won't let us quit. It's better to pause then to come to a full stop. Every little tear we shed is another big lesson we've learned. Every teardrop is a waterfall.
