Coldplay – Lovers In Japan lyrics

Lovers, keep on the road you're on
Runners, until the race is run
Soldiers, you've got to soldier on
Sometimes even right is wrong

They are turning my head out
To see what I'm all about
Keeping my head down
To see what it feels like now
But I have no doubt
One day, we are gonna get out

Tonight maybe we're gonna run
Dreaming of the Osaka sun
Ohh ohh...
Dreaming of when the morning comes

They are turning my head out
To see what I'm all about
Keeping my head down
To see what it feels like now
But I have no doubt
One day the sun will come out

    The video for this is amazing, I love the way they write in the air with a glowy thingy (can't think what to call it), but it looks like an ethereal ribbon of light, and it fits perfectly with the emotions this song brings out; elation and joy. This is also possibly inspired by Paul's (Paul from the Bible) letters to all the churches about keeping the faith until the end, even if they're smothered with oppression.

    This is another one of Coldplay's many beautiful and great songs. I love the live version of this song when they drop all of the leaves and flowers and stuff.
    What I really love about all of Coldplay's songs is that there is a great meaning to the words. I think that this one is about believing that there is always gonna be a great tomorrow, that the sun is always gonna rise again, and to keep going on and on, never giving up, and living life to it's fullest.
    I'm always filled with happiness when I hear this song for some reason. But that's a good thing, right? This song proves that Coldplay's song's are amazing; D

    This is one of those Coldplay songs that is obtuse and personal at the same time. Martin is a genius at writing lyrics like that.
    Its obviously about aiming for your dreams and keeping on the road. For me it has even more personal resonance.
    Having lived in Japan for nearly 3 years, in a place I loved and now back in England where everything is a deeper shade of grey, I cannot wait to get back. And I have no doubt, the sun will come out.
