Cemeteries of London
Coldplay Lyrics


At night they would go walking 'till the breaking of the day
The morning is for sleeping
Through the dark streets, they go searching, to see God in their own way
Save the nighttime for your weeping
Your weeping

Singing la lalalalala la la
And the night over London lay

So we rode down to the river, where the toiling ghosts spring
For their curses to be broken
We'd go underneath the arches, where the witches are in the saying
There are ghost towns in the ocean
The ocean

Singing la lalalalala la la
And the night over London lay

God is in the houses and God is in my head
And all the cemeteries in London
I see God come in my garden, but I don't know what he said
For my heart it wasn't open
Not open

Singing la lalalalala la la
And the night over London lay
Singing la lalalalala la la
There's no light over London today.

So we rode down to the river, where the toiling ghosts spring
For their curses to be broken

Bruh all Coldplay's good songs aren't getting the attention they need.

'Course, then there are those who only listen to "Viva La Vida" -

Better be that way at least this fandom is clean without toxic ones.

Sucks they sold out and became a car commercial band. Their albums from Parachutes to this were legitimately incredible and don't get the respect they deserve.

Michael Heikkinen

Fo sho.

If they were more known people literally would have a different opinion on Coldplay

Great song, really, don't know how it hasn't gotten a lot of attention. I used to listen to this song when I was very young and some things still trigger the nostalgia of this song.

Eric McGrane

same man, same. there’s some great music from these guys

Lucas Fernández Réndina

It's incredible, but it works like that...great 2008 atmosphere right?

Raikage Kurama

Same. I forgot all about this song until I started listening to their older playlists
