YouTube Video of My Day

While off to my internship as a law clerk in downtown Long Beach today, the new Coldplay single, Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall, graced my morning with its delightful presence in the gloom of the early morning. When I got back home, I decided to frolic down memory lane and listen to as many Coldplay songs as I could get my hands on. I did and, thus, remembered the awesomeness of all the songs from Yellow to Fix You to Viva La Vida. After looking up the music video for Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall, I realized that it totally made my day brighter and wanted to share it with you. :)

The Lyrics

I turn the music up, I got my records on
I shut the world outside until the lights come on
Maybe the streets alight, maybe the trees are gone
But I feel my heart start beating to my favorite song

And all the kids they dance, all the kids all night
Until Monday morning feels another life
I turn the music up, I'm on a roll this time
And heaven is in sight, Ooh

I turn the music up, I got my records on
From underneath a rubble sing a rebel song
Don't want to see another generation drop
I'd rather be a comma than a full stop
Maybe I'm in the black, maybe I'm on my knees
Maybe I'm in the gap between the two trapezes
But my heart is beating and my pulses start
Cathedrals in my heart

As we saw, oh, this light
I swear you emerge blinking into
To tell me it's alright

As we soar walls
Every siren is a symphony
And every tear's a waterfall

Is a waterfall, ah
Is a waterfall, ah
Is always a waterfall
Every tear is always a waterfall, ah

So you can hurt, hurt me bad
But still I'll raise the flag, Ooh

It was a wa-ah-ah-ah-aterfall
A wa-ah-ah-ah-aterfall

Oh, Oh

Every tear
Every tear
Every teardrop is a waterfall

My favorite part is about shutting the world out through music. Yes, it can bring people together but it's so therapeutically your own when it's just you and your thoughts and the lyrics.

Also, Coldplay will be headlining a benefit concert with proceeds going to the GRAMMY Foundation which would benefit high school music educational programs. Click here for more information.

Are you a fan of Coldplay? Do you have a favorite song?
