Coldplay

Welcome to “Art Wednesday”. Why Wednesday? Because terrorists do it on Monday (please tell me what that means).

So, I have been obsessed with this new Coldplay album called X&Y. iTunes is telling me that I have listened to it roughly 8 times in the last three days. I beat music repeatedly into my head until my ears bleed. Obsession is the game I play with music.

Anyway, the album is really great and not typically something that I would like this much. Here are the lyrics from the last song on the album. I am pretty sure that the pretty-boy lead singer of the band wrote it for Gwen Paltrow (who has a killer song of her own called “Cruising Together” with Huey Lewis. Do you hear a spouse duet on the way?). The song is a really nice acoustic sound with nice lyrics (as you will see).

Album: X&Y
Song: Til Kingdom Come Lyrics

Steal my heart and hold my tongue.
I feel my time, my time has come.
Let me in, unlock the door.
I’ve never felt this way before.

The wheels just keep on turning,
The drummer begins to drum,
I don’t know which way I’m going,
I don’t know which way I’ve come.

Hold my hand inside your hands,
I need someone who understands.
I need someone, someone who hears,
For you, I’ve waited all these years.

For you, I’d wait ’til kingdom come.
Until my day, my day is done.
And say you’ll come, and set me free,
Just say you’ll wait, you’ll wait for me.

In your tears and in your blood,
In your fire and in your flood,
I hear you laugh, I heard you say,
“I wouldn’t change a single thing.”

The wheels just keep on turning,
The drummers begin to drum,
I don’t know which way I’m going,
I don’t know what I’ve become.

For you, I’d wait ’til kingdom come,
Until my days, my days are done.
Say you’ll come and set me free,
Just say you’ll wait, you’ll wait for me.
Just say you’ll wait, you’ll wait for me.
Just say you’ll wait, you’ll wait for me.
