Swallowed in the Sea
Coldplay Lyrics


You cut me down a tree
And brought it back to me
And that's what made me see
Where I was going wrong
You put me on a shelf
And kept me for yourself
I can only blame myself
You can only blame me

And I could write a song
A hundred miles long
Well, that's where I belong
And you belong with me

And I could write it down
Or spread it all around
Get lost and then get found
Or swallowed in the sea

You put me on a line
And hung me out to dry
And darling that's when I
Decided to go to sea

You cut me down to size
And opened up my eyes
Made me realize
What I could not see

And I could write a book
The one they'll say that shook
The world, and then it took
It took it back from me

And I could write it down
Or spread it all around
Get lost and then get found
And you'll come back to me
Not swallowed in the sea

Ooh, ooh

And I could write a song
A hundred miles long
Well, that's where I belong
And you belong with me

The streets you're walking on
A thousand houses long
Well, that's where I belong
And you belong with me

Oh what good is it to live
With nothing left to give
Forget but not forgive
Not loving all you see

Oh the streets you're walking on
A thousand houses long
Well that's where I belong
And you belong with me
Not swallowed in the sea

You belong with me
Not swallowed in the sea
Yeah, you belong with me
Not swallowed in the sea

@Edward Paton A man goes into the doctors, walks up to reception and the lady behind the counter says " Good morning, how can I help you?"
The man says " I need to see the Dr I've got a sore Penis".
The receptionist is horrified " you can't come in here saying filthy words like that! Go outside come back in and say something like I've got a sore arm or leg".
The guy goes back out and comes in again.
The receptionist says "Good morning, how can I help you?"
The man says " I need to see the Dr I've got a sore arm"
The receptionist replies " Take a seat, the Dr will call you in a moment.
The guy sits down and then his name is called, he goes into the room and the Dr says Good morning, it says here you've got a sore arm, what seems to be the problem with it?"
The guy says " I can't pee through it"....

Not a necessarily a Coldplay fan, but this song is so good. Definitely my favorite from them.
