Here are some emotional, meaningful, inspirational quotes from Coldplay’s song lyrics.

  • Coldplay’s “What If”
    • “Every step that you take could be your biggest mistake. It could bend or it could break. That’s the risk that you take. “
    • “Let’s take a breath, jump over the side. How can you know it if you don’t even try.”
    • “Let’s take a breath, jump over the side. You know that darkness always turns into light.”
  • Coldplay’s “Fix You”
    • “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?”
    • “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.”
  • Coldplay’s “Swallowed In The Sea”
    • “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 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.”
    • “Oh what good is it to live with nothing left to give. Forget but not forgive. Not loving all you see.”
  • Coldplay’s “Paradise”
    • “When she was just a girl, she expected the world. But it flew away from her reach, so she ran away in her sleep, and dreamed of paradise, every time she closed her eyes.”
    • “Life goes on, it gets so heavy. The wheel breaks the butterfly. Every tear a waterfall. In the night, the stormy, she’d close her eyes. In the night, the stormy night, away she’d fly, and dream of paradise.”
    • “And so lying underneath those stormy skies, she’d say ‘Oh I know the sun must set to rise.'”
  • Coldplay’s “Talk”
    • “Are you lost or incomplete? Do you feel like a puzzle, you can’t find your missing piece? Tell me how do you feel? Well, I feel like they’re talking in a language I don’t speak, and they’re talking it to me.”
    • “So you don’t know where you’re going, and you wanna talk. And you feel like you’re going where you’ve been before. You tell anyone who’ll listen but you feel ignored. Nothing’s really making any sense at all. Let’s talk.”
  • Coldplay’s “Viva La Vida”
    • “I used to rule the world. Seas would rise when I gave the word. Now in the morning I sleep alone. Sweep the streets I used to own.”
    • “One minute I held the key, next the walls were closed on me. And I discovered that my castles stand upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand.”
    • “Once you’d gone there was never, never an honest word. And that was when I ruled the world.”
  • Coldplay’s “Everglow”
    • “Oh they say people come, say people go. This particular diamond was extra special. And though you might be gone, and the world may not know, still I see you celestial.”
    • “So how come things move on. How come cars don’t slow, when it feels like the end of my world? When I should but I can’t let you go?”
    • “When I’m cold, cold. There’s a light that you give me, when I’m in shadow. There’s a feeling within me, an everglow.”
    • “What I wouldn’t give for just a moment to hold. Yeah, I live for this feeling, this everglow.”
    • “So if you love someone, you should let them know. Oh, the light that you left me will everglow.”
