There's a wild wind blowin'
Down the corner of my street
Every night there the headlights are glowin'
There's a cold war comin'
On the radio I heard
Oh baby, it's a violent world!

Oh love, don't let me go!
Won't you take me where the street lights glow?
I can hear rain coming
I can hear the siren sound
Now my feet won't touch the ground!

Time came a-creepin'
Oh and time's a loaded gun
Every road is a ray of light~
It goes oooooooonnnn
Time only can lead you on
Still it's such a beautiful night!

Oh love, don't let me go!
Won't you take me where the street lights glow?
I can hear rain coming
Like a serenade of sound
Now my feet won't touch the ground!

(Oh oh oh!
Oh oh oh!
Ohh oh! )

Gravity release me,
And never hold me down
Now my feet won't touch the ground!

    I love this song! But, when I got the cd and put it on my iPod I did not get the song with the lyrics. Guess I have to purchase it off iTunes. This song is so wonderful. I wish I could award this song with some sort of nobel peace prize!

    i dont think this is the place for that >.> the main thing about this song is that its LONGER than the first version, which was disappointingly short. the first verse isnt up there so here
    Theres a wild wind blowin
    Down the corner of my street
    Every night there the headlights are glowin
    There's a cold war comin
    On the radio I heard
    Oh baby, it's a violent world
    Oh love, don't let me go
    Won't you take me where the street lights glow
    I can hear rain coming
    I can hear the siren sound
    Now my feet won't touch the ground
    and at the end after the second verse:
    Gravity release me
    And never hold me down
    Now my feet won't touch the ground

    The song is about life and death, which is what the whole viva la vida album is based on. The lyrics are actually incorrect. If you don't believe me, listen to an acoustic version on youtube. Chris martin clearly says, "i can hear it coming" not rain coming. Hence "it" meaning death coming, the sirens sound, now my feet won't touch the ground.

    Very short and I think Coldplay is pretty good, though.
