  • Stole a key
    Took a car downtown where the lost boys meet
    Took a car downtown and took what they offered me
    To set me free

    I saw the lights go down at the end of the scene
    I saw the lights go down and standing in front of me

    In my scarecrow dreams
    When they smashed my heart into smithereens
    Be a bright red rose come bursting the concrete
    Be a cartoon heart

    Light a fire, a fire, a spark
    Light a fire, a flame in my heart

    We'll run riot
    We'll be glowing in the dark
    We'll be glowing in the dark

    All the boys, all the girls
    All that matters in the world
    All the boys, all the girls
    All that matters that occurs
    All the highs, all the lows
    As the room a-spinning goes

    We'll run riot
    We'll be glowing in the dark

    Ooh ooh ooh
    So we'll soar
    Luminous and wired
    We'll be glowing in the darkWriter/s: BRIAN PETER GEORGE ENO, GUY BERRYMAN, JONATHAN MARK BUCKLAND, WILLIAM CHAMPION, CHRISTOPHER ANTHONY JOHN MARTIN

    Be a bright red rose come bursting the concrete... <3
  • Exaltvanline from Aix En Provence - FrOk so let's give the artists a break while asking them what message they'd eventually be trying to deliver when they wrote song X or Y... To me, some songs are just like paintings : We all witness them in a very different way because of where we each stand in time and place in our lives when they hit us. I also believe each time Coldplay performs a song such as "Charlie Brown" (or any other as a matter of fact) context will always bring a particular, unic, dimension to the original creation. In my case, I will always remember these words during the Glasgow concert as my bracelet (and the magical fluorescent sparkling live crowd around me) started to illuminate : "We'll be glowing in the dark"... Anyways long live Coldplay!!!
  • Alejandro from Miramar, FlSo this song has nothing to do with Charlie Brown from Peanuts, then?
