Coldplay – Birds lyrics

Been standing in the corner
Studying the lights
The dreaming of escape
Will keep you up at night

But someone had put the flares up
Got me in the rays so guess I better stay
"Uh uh, no come on!" You say

"It's a fools gold thunder
It's just warring rain
Don't let the fears just start
'What if I won't see you again'

Around here you never
Want to sleep all night
So start falling in love, start the riot
And come on, rage with me

We don't need words, we'll be birds
Got to make our own key"

Only got this moment, you and me
Guilty of nothing but geography

Come on raise it
Come on and raise this noise
For the million people, who got not one voice

Come on it's not over!
If you mean it say loud
Come on all for love
Out from the underground away with me

We don't need words
Close your eyes and see
We'll be birds flying free
Holding on in the mystery

Fearless through this you said
We'll go through this together
So when you fly won't you - won't you take me too?
In this world so cruel I think you're so cool
