Hymn for the Weekend
Coldplay Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Me, drink from me, drink from me (oh I-)
Shoot across the symphony (oh I-, oh I-)
That we shoot across the sky
Drink from me, drink from me (I-, oh I-, oh I-)
That we shoot across the (I'm feeling drunk and high)
Symphony
(So high, so high)
That we shoot across the s- (drink from)

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

You said, "Drink from me, drink from me"
When I was so thirsty
Pour on a symphony
Now I just can't get enough
Put your wings on me, wings on me
When I was so heavy
Pour 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), so high (so high)
Oh I-, oh I-, oh I-
Now I'm feeling drunk and high
So high (so high), so high (so high)
(Woo)
(Ooh)

Oh, angel sent from up above
I feel you 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
Pour 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 (so high)
Oh I-, oh I-, oh I-
Now I'm feeling drunk and high
So high (so high), so high (so high)

I-, oh I-, oh I-
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
So high, so high
I-, oh I-, oh I-
Now I'm feeling drunk and high
So high (so high), so high (so high)

That we shoot across the sky
That we shoot across the
That we shoot across the sky
That we shoot across the (that we shoot, yeah)
That we shoot across the sky
That we shoot across the




That we shoot across the sky
That we shoot across the

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Coldplay's "Hymn for the Weekend" describe the feeling of being uplifted and inspired by someone who is like an angel sent from above. The singer of the song is grateful to this person for being there to lift them up when they were feeling down and hurt. The song compares life to a drink and love to a drug that can make you feel like you're "miles up" or "drunk and high." The imagery is continued with the metaphor of "shooting across the sky" like a symphony, which suggests a euphoric and grand feeling.


The chorus of the song repeats the phrase "drink from me" which could be interpreted as a plea to drink from the well of the person's love, or to partake in their positive energy. The lyrics "when I was so heavy" and "when I'm low, low, low, low" suggest that the singer is someone who struggles with feelings of depression or anxiety, and that this angel-like figure in their life is what keeps them going. The song ends with a repeated refrain of "that we shoot across the sky" which reinforces the feeling of exhilaration and transcendence that the song is trying to evoke.


Overall, "Hymn for the Weekend" is a song about the ways that love and inspiration can lift us up and make us feel alive. It's a celebration of the power of positive energy and the way that it can transform our lives.
