Coldplay’s ‘Hurts Like Heaven’

We all have that song which we rock out to in our bedroom, door closed and headphones on. We dance without feeling embarrassed because we ensure that noone’s watching.

Mine is one of the many great songs on Coldplay’s Mylo Xyloto and these are the lyrics:

Written in graffiti on a bridge in a park
‘Do you ever get the feeling that you’re missing the mark?’
It’s so cold, it’s so cold
It’s so cold, it’s so cold

Written up in marker on a factory sign
‘I struggle with the feeling that my life isn’t mine’
It’s so cold, it’s so cold
It’s so cold, it’s so cold

See the arrow that they shot, trying to tear us apart
Fire from my belly and the beat from my heart
Still I won’t let go
Still I won’t let go

You
Ooohooh

‘Cause you do

Oh you, use your heart as a weapon
And it hurts like heaven

On every street, every car, every surface are names
And at the streets arise, i’ll be rather insane
Don’t let them take control
No we won’t let take control

Yes, I feel a little bit nervous,
Yes, I feel nervous and I cannot relax,
How come they’re out to get us?
How come they’re out when they don’t know the facts?

So on concrete canvas under cover of dark
Concrete canvas, I’ll go making my mark
Armed with a spray can soul
I’ll be armed with a spray can soul

You
Ooohooh

Oh, you
Ooohooh

Yes, you
You use your heart as a weapon
And it hurts like heaven

Woho-ooh
Woho-oooh

It’s true
When you
Use your heart as a weapon
It hurts like heaven
