Speed of Sound
Coldplay Lyrics


How long before I get in?
Before it starts, before I begin?
How long before you decide?
Before I know what it feels like?

Where to, where do I go?
If you never try, then you'll never know
How long do I have to climb
Up on the side of this mountain of mine?
Look up, I look up at night
Planets are moving at the speed of light
Climb up, up in the trees
Every chance that you get
Is a chance you seize
How long am I gonna stand
With my head stuck under the sand?
I'll start before I can stop
Before I see things the right way up

All that noise, and all that sound
All those places I got found
And birds go flying at the speed of sound
To show you how it all began
Birds came flying from the underground
If you could see it then you'd understand

Ideas that you'll never find
All the inventors could never design
The buildings that you put up
Japan and China all lit up
The sign that I couldn't read
Or a light that I couldn't see
Some things you have to believe
But others are puzzles, puzzling me

All that noise, and all that sound
All those places I got found
And birds go flying at the speed of sound
To show you how it all began
Birds came flying from the underground
If you could see it then you'd understand
Ah, when you see it then you'll understand

All those signs, I knew what they meant
Some things you can invent
And some get made, and some get sent
Ooh

Birds go flying at the speed of sound
To show you how it all began
Birds came flying from the underground
If you could see it then you'd understand
Ah, when you see it then you'll understand

I don't get how people could hate Coldplays songs. I'm obsessed with them.

@zenmoon3 facts man, people hate on mainstream music to seem edgy and cool

@Monstress Monsters Yes it really is not K-pop and is Pop-e

Coldplay have got to be the best band of the 21st Century. They are the U2 of the 21st Century. Chris Martin is the English Bono.

@nitelite78 Who cares if its predictable? And pop ??? Almost all of their songs are Alt-rock. Chris Martin's voice is beautiful and calming for me. I have never heard anything like it.

David Copson

I think they hate the idea of their success.

This song made me realised 2 things:
1. How old I’m getting since the first time i listened to it.
2. How amazing it still is throughout these years.

I’m 59 just hearing it now. Kind of didn’t have a clue about music past 1995. Not bad.

Yes Dear
