Adventure of a Lifetime
Coldplay/Musicfire.in Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Turn your magic on, umi she'd say
Everything you want's a dream away
We are legends, every day
That's what she told him

Turn your magic on, to me she'd say
Everything you want's a dream away
Under this pressure, under this weight
We are diamonds

Now I feel my heart beating
I feel my heart beneath my skin
I feel my heart beating
Oh, you make me feel
Like I'm alive again
Alive again
Oh, you make me feel
Like I'm alive again

Said I can't go on, not in this way
I'm a dream that died by light of day
Gonna hold up half the sky and say
Only I own me

Now I feel my heart beating
I feel my heart beneath my skin
Oh, I can feel my heart beating
'Cause you make me feel
Like I'm alive again
Alive again
Oh, you make me feel
Like I'm alive again

Turn your magic on, umi she'd say
Everything you want's a dream away
Under this pressure, under this weight
We are diamonds taking shape
We are diamonds taking shape
(Woo-ooh, woo-ooh)

If we've only got this life
This adventure, oh then I
And if we've only got this life
You'll get me through, oh
And if we've only got this life
And this adventure, oh then I
Wanna share it with you
With you, with you
Sing it, oh, say yeah

Woo-hoo (woo-hoo)
Woo-hoo (woo-hoo)
Woo-hoo (woo-hoo)
Woo-hoo (woo-hoo)
Woo-hoo (woo-hoo)
Woo-hoo (woo-hoo)
Woo-hoo (woo-hoo)
Woo-hoo (woo-hoo)
Woo-hoo (woo-hoo)
Woo-hoo (woo-hoo)




Woo-hoo (woo-hoo)
Woo-hoo (woo-hoo)

Overall Meaning

The opening lines of the song 'Turn your magic on, umi she'd say, Everything you want's a dream away' appears to be a conversation between two people. The person speaking is encouraging the other to believe in their dreams and to turn on their inner 'magic' to achieve them. The first verse continues with an assertion that they both are legends and that they have the ability to achieve their dreams every day. The second verse begins with the same line as the first, but this time it appears to be a conversation between the two people. They are talking about the pressure and weight that they are under, but also about how they are diamonds that are taking shape.


The chorus is a continuation of the conversation, but it takes on a more personal tone. The singer is talking about how their heart is beating and how the other person is making them feel alive again. This could be interpreted as finding purpose and meaning through a relationship or personal connection. The second half of the chorus repeats the line 'you make me feel like I'm alive again' to drive home the point.


The bridge of the song takes a different direction. The singer is saying that they can't go on as they have been and that they feel like a dream that died by the light of day. They are determined to take control of their life and only answer to themselves. This could be seen as a turning point in the song and a realization of the need for inner strength and resilience to achieve one's dreams.


Overall, the lyrics of 'Adventure of a Lifetime' appear to be a call to action to believe in one's self and to pursue one's dreams. It is a combination of personal empowerment and the power of personal connections to create meaning and purpose.
