Album: Parachutes (2000)
  • Did I drive you away
    I know what you'll say
    You say, oh, sing one we know
    But I promise you this
    I'll always look out for you
    That's what I'll do

    I say oh
    I say oh

    My heart is yours
    It's you that I hold on to
    That's what I do
    And I know I was wrong
    But I won't let you down
    (Oh yeah, yeah, yes I will)

    I say oh
    I cry oh

    And I saw sparks
    Yeah I saw sparks
    And I saw sparks
    Yeah I saw sparks
    Sing it out

    La, la, la, la, oh
    La, la, la, la, oh
    La, la, la, la, oh
    La, la, la, la, oh Writer/s: Guy Rupert Berryman, Jonathan Mark Buckland, William Champion, Christopher Anthony John Martin

  • Andrea from Sønderborg, DenmarkI thought it was illegal to use Coldplay-songs in movies and ads?
  • Hanna from Steamboat, Coi think its an amazing sound and a great song about forgiveness and the fact that you will be let down at some point in your life, but life will go on...
  • Mark from Manila, OtherThis is a good song, but most people don't see that.
  • Laura from Spencerport, NyVery mellowed out song...typical coldplay, but damn, it never ceases to amaze me how well the song is constructed.
