Glass of Water
Coldplay Lyrics


Scared of losing all the time
He wrote it in a letter
He was a friend of mine
He heard you could see your future
Inside a glass of water
With ripples and the rhymes
He asked will I see heaven in mine?

Oh that is just the way it was
And nothing could be better
And nothing ever was
And they say you can see your future
Inside a glass of water
With riddles and the rhymes
But will I see heaven in mine?
Oh, oh, oh

Son, don't ask,
Neither how full nor empty is your glass
Cling to the mast
Spend your whole life living in the past
Going nowhere fast

So he wrote it on a wall
The hollowest of halos
Is no halo at all
And Televisions selling plastic figurines of leaders
Saying nothing at all
And you chime
Stars in heaven align
Oh

Son, don't ask,
Neither how full nor empty is your glass
Cling to the mast
Spend your whole life living in the past
Going nowhere fast

What are we drinking when we're done, just glasses of water

​@Benjamin Hanssen it's not his favorite Coldplay song anymore, but at one point he did say that. He always changes his answer when asked what his favorite Coldplay song is. During AHFOD era I think he was saying Up&Up

Benjamin Hanssen

where did he say that

Bogbert

This has to be one of the best Coldplay songs :) A lot of the older ones are unbelievably great, but this one is the best of the best
