Coldplay – Yes lyrics

When it started we had high hopes
Now my back's on the line
My back's on the ropes

When it started we were alright
But night makes a fool of us in the

Yeah we were dying of frustration
Saying "Lord lead me not into

But it's not easy when she turns you on
Since they've gone

If you'll only, if you'll only say yes
Whether you will's anybody's guess

God only, God knows I'm trying my best
But I'm just so tired of this loneliness

So, up they picked me by the big toe
I was held from the rooftop then they let go

There's only screaming
Let the windows down
As I come to the ground

If you'll only, if you'll only say yes
Whether you will's anybody's guess

God only, God knows she won't let me rest
But I'm just so tired of this loneliness
I've become so tired of this loneliness

    Could be - how deep do you think this is?
    As with all my other comments I posted - I truly believe this album is for Henry viii reign -
    He and Anne Boelyn = their relationship - he had to choose to separate from the catholic church in order to have his marriage to Queen Catherine annuled and then marry Anne- she would not sleep with him until. And he swore himself to her - he would not have a mistress and sent Queen Catherine away while all this went on. And Queen Catherine was Aunt to the Emperor so England was hanging on by the 'big toe' and going to have alot of problems if all this happened.

    This is about him starting out having an affair with someone he love, this made them fools in the eyes of others. He has to stop. This is hard for him because she is tempting him. God knows that he is trying to resist. He is tired of being lonely without her at the end of the song.
