  • Lovers, keep on the road you're on
    Runners, until the race is run
    Soldiers, you've got to soldier on
    Sometimes even the right is wrong

    They are turning my head out
    To see what I'm all about
    Keeping my head down
    To see what it feels like now
    But I have no doubt
    One day, we're gonna get out

    Tonight maybe we're gonna run
    Dreaming of the Osaka sun
    Oh, oh,
    Dreaming of when the morning comes

    They are turning my head out
    To see what I'm all about
    Keeping my head down
    To see what it feels like now
    But I have no doubt
    One day the sun will come out


    Reign of love
    I can't let it go
    To the sea I offer
    This heavy load

    Locusts will
    Lift me up
    I'm just a prisoner
    In a reign of love

    Locusts will
    Let us stop
    I wish I'd spoken
    To the reign of love

    Reign of love
    By the church, we're waiting
    Reign of love
    My knees go praying

    How I wish
    I'd spoken up
    Or we'd be carried
    On the reign of love Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind

  • Liesa from Roy, UtI love these songs, they just give a good feeling. Coldplay is such an amazing band.
  • Justin from Roseville, CaMy favorite ingredient of this song is the everlasting, echoing guitar in the background. It soars subtly and untouched throughout the song. Makes one dream of triumph in the face of present hardship. A glistening future that will come true, as long as one keeps pushing forward.
  • Drew from Buffalo, NyI know there not very similar but Pink Floyd's "Summer '68" piano line off of Atom Heart Mother sounds similar to me the "Reign of Love" but a lot slower.
  • Rachel from Boston<3, MaI LOVE these songs. Lovers in Japan has great lyrics and reign of love has beautiful piano work. Chris Martin is truly amazing :)
