Drink from me, drink from me (oh-ah-oh-ah)
Then we'll shoot across the (symphony)
Then we'll shoot across the sky
Drink from me, drink from me (oh-ah-oh-ah)
Then we'll shoot across the (oh-ah-oh-ah)
Symphony
(So high, so high)
Then we'll shoot across the sky

Oh, angels sent from up above
You know you make my world light up
When I was down, when I was hurt
You came to lift me up
Life is a drink, and love's a drug
Oh now I think I must be miles up
When I was hurt, withered, dried up
You came to rain a flood

So drink from me, drink from me
When I was so thirsty
We're on a symphony
Now I just can't get enough
Put your wings on me, wings on me
When I was so heavy
We're on a symphony
When I'm lower, lower, lower, low

Ah-oh-ah-oh-ah
Got me feeling drunk and high
So high, so high
Oh-ah-oh-ah-oh-ah
I'm feeling drunk and high
So high, so high
(Woo)
(Woo-ooo-ooo-woo)

Oh, angels sent from up above
I feel it coursing through my blood
Life is a drink, your love's about
To make the stars come out

Put your wings on me, wings on me
When I was so heavy
We're on a symphony
When I'm lower, lower, lower, low

Ah-oh-ah-oh-ah
Got me feeling drunk and high
So high, so high
Oh-ah-oh-ah-oh-ah
I'm feeling drunk and high
So high, so high

Ah-oh-ah-oh-ah
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
So high, so high
Ah-oh-ah-oh-ah
I'm feeling drunk and high
So high, so high

Then we'll shoot across the sky
Then we'll shoot across the
Then we'll shoot across the sky
Then we'll shoot across the (then we'll shoot)
Then we'll shoot across the sky
Then we'll shoot across the




Then we'll shoot across the sky
Then we'll shoot across the

Overall Meaning

The first verse of "Hymn for the Weekend" by Coldplay ft. Beyoncé talks about sharing a drink with someone, followed by shooting across the sky. The drink is being used as a metaphor for life, and the notion that we need to drink it all in before we shoot across the sky or die. The drink can also mean love, which is like a drug, intoxicating but necessary for survival. The second verse talks about angels that come to the rescue when the singer is down and hurt, lifting her up so she can keep going. The angels are again being used as a metaphor for love, which makes life easier and more bearable. The chorus repeats the metaphor of the drink, and how even in a state of being drunk and high, the love that surrounds us makes us feel high and drunk. The song reinforces the idea that we need love and connection to survive and thrive.


Overall, "Hymn for the Weekend" is a song that explores the themes of love, connection, and the need to drink in life. It uses metaphors of drinking and shooting across the sky to convey a sense of urgency, that we must live life fully and embrace the love that surrounds us. The use of angelic figures and Beyoncé's powerful vocals add a sense of grandeur and epicness to the song, making it an anthem of sorts for the power of love.

Oh, angel sent from up above
You know you make my world light up
When I was down, when I was hurt
You came to lift me up
Life is a drink and love's a drug
Oh now I think I must be miles up
When I was a river dried up
You came to rain a flood

[Pre-Chorus: Chris Martin with Beyoncé]
You said drink from me, drink from me
When I was so thirsty
Poured on a symphony
Now I just can't get enough
Put your wings on me, wings on me
When I was so heavy
Poured on a symphony
When I'm low, low, low, low
I, Oh-I, Oh-I
Got me feeling drunk and high
So high, so high
Oh-I, Oh-I, Oh-I
Now I’m feeling drunk and high
So high, so high
(Woo)
