Coldplay – When I Need A Friend lyrics
[Verse 1: Chris Martin and Choir]
Holy, Holy
Dove descend
Soft and slowly
When I'm near the end

[Verse 2: Chris Martin and Choir]
Holy, Holy
Dark defend
Shield me, show me
When I need a friend


[Chorus: Chris Martin and Choir]
Slowly, slowly
Violence, end
Love reign o'er me
When I need a friend

[Outro: Sample from the film 'Everything Is Incredible']
Hombre, mire
Ah, propiamente
Para toda la gente ha sido motivo de burla
Por que todo el mundo piensa que es una cosa imposible
Que es cuestión de locos
El problema es que todo es increíble
Y la gente no lo acepta

    I think this song is about desiring the presence of the Holy Spirit.
    The spirit of God is our friend,
    a protector from darkness and violence
    and gives us a sense of being loved.
    ( The dove is a picture of the Holy Spirit. When Jesus was baptised the spirit descended on him in the form of a dove.)
