Coldplay – Fix You lyrics

When you try your best, but you don't succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home,
And ignite your bones,
And I will try to fix you,

High up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down your face
And I

Tears stream down your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face
And I

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

    I heard this song several months after my closest sibling, my beloved brother, passed away. He tried in every way to make life better for me, right down to his last breaths. I sobbed when I heard it the first time, like he was singing it to me, and only me. The song means to me that he is watching and listening, and if I will listen too, I will hear the answer clearly.
    Hi, It's Me. Is it You?

    I know it sounds stupid, but my heart hurts when I hear this song. It's on right now! I can't hold myself together. It's hurting my heart! My stomach feels as if I'm going to weep. I can't. Take it! It's so calm and sad. I feel like crying. I feel like closing my eyes and going off to a different world. I don't know why I feel like crying. My throat. It's so painful to feel like this. But do feel like crying of happiness, or sadness? I have tears in my eyes. The song is now over. And now the Live version is on. Wtf? Sorry, I'm just sensitive to sad songs. I can't take the depressing music. At least its not that sad. I mean, I feel sad in a happy feeling.

    This is the very first time I'm posting on the website.
    As everyone else. This song means a helluva lot to me. It's bloody too deep. And it's moving. I just got evicted out of my house a couple months back. Still not gotten out of it. The feeling that prevailed when I saw people throw pots and pans out was terrible. And I will never forget it. And everytime I think of it. I get emotional.
    This song is so clear. To me it means. That after everything that happened, my closest family and best friends will always be there for me, waiting for me to be all happy again. It's so beautiful.

    I completely agree with the previous thoughts! In my case, I wrote this song in a letter to my boyfriend before going on holidays with the message "there's always a way" (lights will guide you home) no matter the problems, and I wanted to let him know that I would always be there to "fix" him when sad. Now We are not toghether any more and paying attention to the part that says "When you're too in love to let it go, if you never try you'll never know what you're worth" I discover how true it is, as I had to let him go cause there's no right to suffering and sometimes the only way to learn from one's mistakes is just losing what you most love. Hope he learns from his mistakes. This song is the saddest ever!

    Last September 30, 2010 me and my man were seperated. He was sentenced to a year in prison and I was sent to jail. He and I were accused of burglery and recieving stolen property. We have done some stupid things in our relationship and made horrible mistakes, but this time we were innocent. The man who pressed charges just got busted for insurance fraud. Now my man is in prison til September 2011 and I need him home with me and our 3 babies under 2 years old. Please lights guide him home. I'm gonna ignite his bone alright. =) As soon as we get in the car! I miss him so much. I look at it like Karma for all the bad stuff. I want to fix him. I will try to fix him and myself for us and our kids. Drugs ruined our life. I'm fixing myself now. Its a process. Man I miss my Christopher. Thank you for this song. It has more meaning to me than I can possibly tell you on this post. Thank You for the inspiration!
