Charlie Brown
Coldplay Lyrics


Stole a key
Took a car downtown where the lost boys meet
Took a car downtown and took what they offered me
To set me free

I saw the lights go down at the end of the scene
I saw the lights go down and standing in front of me

In my scarecrow dreams
When they smashed my heart into smithereens
Be a bright red rose come bursting the concrete
Be a cartoon heart

Light a fire, a fire, a spark
Light a fire, a flame in my heart

We'll run riot
We'll be glowing in the dark
We'll be glowing in the dark

All the boys, all the girls
All that matters in the world
All the boys, all the girls
All that matters that occurs
All the highs, all the lows
As the room a-spinning goes

We'll run riot
We'll be glowing in the dark

Ooh ooh ooh
So we'll soar
Luminous and wired
We'll be glowing in the dark

[Intro]
Oooo, wooo

[Verse 1]
Stole a key
Took a car downtown where the lost boys meet
Took a car downtown and took what they offered me
To set me free
I saw the lights go down at the end of the scene
Saw the lights go down and standing in front of me

[Hook]
Oooo-ooo-ooo

[Verse 2]
In my scarecrow dreams
When they smash my heart into smithereens
Be a bright red rose come bursting through concrete
Be a cartoon heart
Light a fire, a fire, a spark
Light a fire, a flame in my heart
We’ll run wild
We’ll be glowing in the dark

[Hook]
Oooo-ooo-ooo
We’ll be glowing in the dark
A-woo,-a-wooooo


[Bridge]
All the boys, all the girls
All that matters in the world
All the boys, all the girls
All the madness that occurs
All the highs, all the lows
As the room a-spinning goes
We’ll run riot
We’ll be glowing in the dark

[Hook]
Oooo-ooo-ooo

[Outro]
So we’ll soar
Luminous and wired
We’ll be glowing in the dark

Coldplay have said before that the song had nothing to do with the cartoon character. But I wonder:

”In my scarecrow dreams
When they smashed my heart into smithereens
Be a bright red rose come bursting the concrete
Be a cartoon heart
Light a fire, a fire, a spark
Light a fire, a flame in my heart”

That does seem like a reference to Charlie being an outsider and when he falls in love with the little redhaired girl.

Charlie Brown - Lyrics

Wooh, ooh ooh ooh

Stole a key
Took a car downtown where the lost boys meet
Took a car downtown and took what they offered me
To set me free
I saw the lights go down at the end of the scene
Saw the lights go down and standing in front of me

Poh ooh ooh

In my scarecrow dreams
When they smash my heart into smithereens
Be a bright red rose come bursting the concrete
Be a cartoon heart
Light a fire a fire a spark
Light a fire a flame in my heart
We'll run wild
We'll be glowing in the dark
Oooh ooh ooh
We'll be glowing in the dark
A-woo-a-wooooo

All the boys, all the girls, all that matters in the world
All the boys, all the girls, all the madness that occurs
All the highs all the lows, as the room a-spinning goes
We'll run riot, we'll be glowing in the dark

Ooooh, ooooh, ooooh
So we'll soar
Luminous and wired
We'll be glowing in the dark



Obs: Please stream Coldplay's last album #EverydayLife, they didnt divulge it enough, it's amazing and deserve so much more

Stole a key
Took a car downtown where the lost boys meet
Took a car downtown and took what they offered me
To set me free

I saw the lights go down at the end of the scene
I saw the lights go down and standing in front of me

In my scarecrow dreams
When they smashed my heart into smithereens
Be a bright red rose come bursting the concrete
Be the cartoon heart

Light a fire, light a spark
Light a fire, a flame in my heart

We'll run wild oh
We'll be glowing in the dark
We'll be glowing in the dark

All the boys, all the girls
All that matters in the world
All the boys, all the girls
All that matters that occurs
All the highs, all the lows
As the room is spinning, oh

We'll run wild
We'll be glowing in the dark

Living innocent wild
We'll be glowing in the dark
