Us Against the World

Aside from Paradise, my favourite song in Coldplay's latest album Mylo Xyloto will have to be Us Against the World. It's a really beautiful song and somehow for me is very uplifting. It's one of those great songs that give me goosebumps and in my humble opinion, I prefer it much much much better live! According to Chris Martin, "The whole thing is supposed to be a kind of story so they all fit together and that is the two characters from the previous two songs when they meet each other. It's about meeting someone you love and feeling powerful, when you meet someone and suddenly everything feels alright again." (Click here for source)

So... What are you trying to say Mr. Martin? Are you saying that these two lovers met in Paradise, fell in love, met again in Charlie Brown and then again in Us Against the World? I'd love to meet someone like that! But I want my story to begin with Shiver, fall in love, Yellow and then Us Against the World! Is there any Coldplay fan out there who would love to meet someone that way? (Pick me pick me pick me!!! *angkat tangan macam orang gila*) Hehehe.

Anyways, here's the lyrics! Enjoy! :)

Oh morning come bursting the clouds, amen. Lift off this blindfold, let me see again. And bring back the water, let your ships roll in, in my heart she left a hole. The tightrope that I'm walking just sways and ties. The devil as he's talking with those angel's eyes. And I just wanna be there when the lightning strikes. And the saints go marching in. And sing slow it down. Through chaos as it swirls. It's us against the world. Like a river to a raindrop I lost a friend. My drunken has a Daniel in a lion's den. And tonight I know it all has to begin again. So whatever you do, don't let go. And if we could float away, fly up to the surface and just start again. And lift off before trouble just erodes us in the rain, just erodes us in the rain, just erodes us, and see roses in the rain. Sing slow it down, slow it down. Through chaos as it swirls, it's us against the world. Through chaos as it swirls, it's us against the world.
