Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Interesting Facts ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

In my place, in my place
Were lines that I couldn't change
I was lost, oh yeah

I was lost, I was lost
Crossed lines I shouldn't have crossed
I was lost, oh yeah
Yeah how long must you wait for it?
Yeah how long must you pay for it?
Yeah how long must you wait for it?
Oh for it

I was scared, I was scared
Tired and under prepared
But I wait for it

If you go, if you go
Leave me down here on my own
Then I'll wait for you (yeah)

Yeah how long must you wait for it?
Yeah how long must you pay for it?
Yeah how long must you wait for it?
Oh for it

Sing it, please, please, please
Come back and sing to me, to me, me
Come on and sing it out, now, now
Come on and sing it out, to me, me
Come back and sing it

In my place, in my place




Were lines that I couldn't change
And I was lost, oh yeah, oh yeah

Overall Meaning

The opening lyrics to Coldplay's "In My Place" reflect a deep sense of regret and reflection. The singer realizes that there were certain lines that he couldn't change in his life, mistakes he had made that could never be altered or undone. He was lost, both figuratively and possibly even literally, as he had crossed lines he shouldn't have crossed. The repetition of the phrase, "I was lost" emphasizes the singer's sense of being adrift, unsure of where to go or what to do to make things right.


The chorus of the song asks how long one must wait and pay for their mistakes. The singer acknowledges that he was scared and underprepared for the consequences of his actions, but he still waits for the chance to make things right. The repetition of the phrase, "oh for it" further emphasizes the singer's longing for redemption and the hope that he can make amends.


The bridge of the song takes on a pleading tone, with the singer begging for someone to come back and sing to him. This could be interpreted in a few different ways - perhaps the singer is hoping for someone to bring him comfort during a difficult time, or maybe he's asking for forgiveness from someone he's wronged, hoping they'll return and begin to heal the rift between them.


Overall, "In My Place" is a melancholy reflection on regret and hope for redemption. It's a song that speaks to the universality of human experience, as we all have moments we wish we could go back and change.

Fire in the sky lyrics. โœจ๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽผ

Yeah, yeah, yeah

You was cruisin' with your top down, Fourth of July
I was movin' down the block, we got caught at the light
Out my window, I was shootin' my shot
Watchin' fireworks in the sky
In the summers we let the top down, soak up the light
All I wanted was just to lock down the love of my life
Nice and simple, like a midnight drive
Watchin' fireworks in the sky

I'm callin' it now
I'm callin' it now
I'm callin' it now
You'll find love with me somehow, yeah somehow
I'm callin' it now

We was movin' kinda fast but the feelin' was right
We should cruise up to Nevada, get married tonight
Life is simple, long as you in my life
Watchin' fireworks in the sky
In the summers we spent the nights makin' love in the park
We was buzzin' off cherry wine, lookin' up at the stars
I felt blissful how you felt in my arms
Woke up, you was singin' a song like

I'm callin' it now
I'm callin' it now
I'm callin' it now
You'll find love with me somehow, yeah somehow
I'm callin' it now

Ooh, ooh-ooh
Every line, every word, every noun and verb, can't define you
Ooh, ooh-ooh
You were shy but you told me to pull over and I'm right behind you

I'm callin' it now
I'm callin' it now
I'm callin' it now
You'll find love with me somehow, yeah somehow
I'm callin' it now (ah, ah, ah)

I'm callin' it now
I'm callin' it now
I'm callin' it now
You'll find love with me somehow, yeah somehow
I'm callin' it now (ah)

Fire in the sky (yeah)
Now I can see brighter days
Fire in the sky
Now I can see brighter days

Absolutely loved this song at the end of the movie. It fit perfectly. Sounds like a late night drive song

mango

haha I havent watched it yet and knew it had to do something with the outro. How was it? Im excited to watch it.

NJ223Gaming

@mango I loved it. Some of the best hand to hand combat we've ever seen in the MCU, if not the best. Characters were likeable and the story was believable. The family dynamic really made you feel what was going on. My only gripe was the film score being generic and underwhelming like most MCU films, but other than that I loved it.

Ayesha Sha Sha!

@NJ223Gaming totally agree with your points! The combat scenes were incredible... And I definitely think this will be my driving song for the rest of the summer we have left!

Zieppy

@mango Imo, one of the best movies I've ever watched

Andrew Hurst

Factsss and the fact that I watched this late at night was a vibe

I don't know how he does it. Everything he touches is gold. Anderson .Paak is very quickly becoming a great. Super awesome.
