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.

    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.

    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 :)

    It's about forgiveness, and how relieving it is, and how much you can do with it. As well as the willingness to accept what is right, and reject what the author thinks is wrong.
    At the beginning he seems a little uneasy, and the only thing keeping him afloat is his music. And he feels that as long as he sticks by his "music" (his morals) that he is going to be doing right from now on.
    Then it says he doubts, "maybe im in the black, maybe i'm on my knees" but he sticks to his guns and refuses the bad ideas that the world (two trapezes), is flinging at him, and pulls through with his "music".
    "as we saw , oh this light" can represent god's light. And after he has been comforted by god he is able to "soar walls" (vanquish his enemies) and cries many tears of joy after that.
    At the end he adds that even though you may hurt him, he will always do what he thinks is right.

    The singer is hurt emotionally, and he shuts the world out. But still, he's crying, and every tear is a waterfall. And then, obviously, a girl emerges. I can't quite explain the line that starts with "so you can hurt, hurt me bad, bu still i'll raise the flag. " possibly saying that she can hurt him really bad, but he still will love her? I don't know about that one. That's what it means, at least to me.
