FIX YOU - COLDPLAY



When you try your best but you don't succeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can't sleep

Stuck in reverse


And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste

Could it be worse?


Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And high up above or down below

When you're too in love to let it go

But if you never try you'll never know

Just what you're worth


Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones

And I will try to fix you


Tears stream down your face

When you lose something you cannot replace

Tears stream down your face

And I

Tears stream down your face

I promise you I will learn from my mistakes

Tears stream down your face

And I

Lights will guide you home

And ignite your bones

And I will try to fix you

Sort of presupposes that you are broken...

hey you know, dianne..
at first i thought you had written this ..
then i played the video and realized they are lyrics to a song ..
you see ...
i've always thought that some of your poetry could be set to song ..

as your rottweiler, i recommend that you listen to joni mitchell "court and spark". listening to it last night i was reminded, again and again, of you. go ahead...cry your eyes out. then, pick up your sword.

Serious song - that is part of the problem, put on "Muskrat Love" and remember as a blogger you have a built in support group. Might not be able to fix you, but maybe we can offer some companionship and cheer.

Lee said...

I'm with /t. It doesn't sound like something I would want to have done, if I was me.

dianne said...

Dear j cosmo , my spirit is broken. ♥

dianne said...

Thank you dearest Foamie , yes song lyrics are poetry set to music; I'm hoping to come up with something poetic soon my friend. ♥

J Cosmo Newbery said...

Bruised, battered even, these I can believe. But broken? No.

dianne said...

Thanks dearest K9 , that is a beautiful song...the tears keep flowing and why I dont know, but please dont go worrying about me, that is not what I want.
I am just sharing some of my favourite songs with you, sad ones yes, 'cause that's how I feel.
And as you are my protective rottweiler, when I am finished crying I will don my protective armour and take up my sword and slay any undeserving princes, or knights or whomever trespasses upon the realm of my heart. I am so tired of princes who turn out to be frogs. ♥♥

dianne said...

Thank you dear Lee , in saying 'ignite your bones' I feel it is a metaphor, meaning you will be warmed to your very core, warmed to your bones, to bring back the fire to your very being. ♥

dianne said...

Thank you dear Phos , I dont expect anyone to fix me nor do I want anyone to be concerned about me, nor is this an attention seeking prank...I just wanted to go and dig a hole and bury myself in it and shut out the world so that I couldn't feel the hurt.
But it didn't work and I miss you all so here I am with my half baked attempt at blogging so I have someone to reach out to.I really appreciate the offer of companionship and cheer and encouraging words, they do help. ♥

dianne said...

Yes j cosmo , broken. ♥

dianne said...

Thanks dear /t. for your humour, you are a funny fellow.

I think I should stay well away from electricity, because I dont think tears and power outlets are a good mix. ♥

I am so tired of myself, I'm digging deep but coming up empty. And I feel like such a failure when you all send me these messages of kindness hoping for a spark of the old me which I cannot find at the moment, so maybe I should just go away or post something and you dont have to waste your time making a comment, I really dont know what to do. You dont have to post a comment you know. ♥

J Cosmo Newbery said...

I only post comments on blogs I care about.

dianne said...

Thank you dear j cosmo that is comforting to know. ♥
