SONG: Clocks - Coldplay

Clocks - Coldplay

Composição: Chris Martin / Guy Berryman / Jon Buckland / Will Champion

The lights go out and I can't be saved
Tides that I tried to swim against
Have brought me down upon my knees
Oh I beg, I beg and plead, singing
Come out of things unsaid
Shoot an apple off my head and a
Trouble that can't be named
A tiger's waiting to be tamed, singing
You are
You are
Confusion never stops
Closing walls and ticking clocks
Gonna come back and take you home
I could not stop that you now know, singing
Come out upon my seas
Cursed missed opportunities
Am I a part of the cure?
Or am I part of the disease? Singing
You are, you are, you are
You are, you are, you are
And nothing else compares
Oh nothing else compares
And nothing else compares
You are
You are
Home, home where I wanted to go
Home, home where I wanted to go
Home, home where I wanted to go
Home, home where I wanted to go

Coldplay 

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Coldplay are an English alternative rock band, formed in London in 1997. Chris Martin, who became the lead vocalist and frontman of the band and Jonny Buckland, who became lead guitarist, were looking forward to form a band while at University College London.[1] After forming Pectoralz, Guy Berryman joined the group as a bassist and they changed their name to Starfish afterwards.[2] Will Champion joined as a drummer and backup vocalist who plays various instruments, making the band's lineup complete. Out of the four, one member was considered to be fifth of the group; Phil Harvey has been the group's band manager.[3] The band finally renamed to "Coldplay" in 1998.[4] Tim Rice-Oxley was to be added to the lineup, but he refused to as he is working with Keane.[5] The band later recorded and released three EPs; Safety in 1998, Brothers & Sisters as a single in 1999 and The Blue Room in the same year. The latter was their first release on a major label, after signing to Parlophone.[6]
Coldplay's early material was compared to acts such as Radiohead, Jeff Buckley, U2, and Travis.[7] They achieved worldwide fame with the release of the single "Yellow" in 2000, followed by their debut album released in the same year, Parachutes, which was nominated for the Mercury Prize. The band's second album, A Rush of Blood to the Head (2002), won multiple awards, including NME's Album of the Year. Their next release, X&Y, received a slightly less enthusiastic yet still generally positive reception upon its release in 2005. The band's fourth studio album, Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends (2008), was produced by Brian Eno and released again to largely favourable reviews, earning several Grammy nominations and wins.[8] Coldplay have sold over 50 million records worldwide.[9]
Since the release of Parachutes, Coldplay have drawn influence from other sources, including Echo & the Bunnymen,[10] Kate Bush, George Harrison[11] and Muse[12] on A Rush of Blood to the Head, Johnny Cash and Kraftwerk for X&Y [13] and Blur, Arcade Fire and My Bloody Valentine on Viva la Vida.[14] Coldplay have been an active supporter of various social and political causes, such as Oxfam's Make Trade Fair campaign and Amnesty International. The group have also performed at various charity projects such as Band Aid 20, Live 8, Sound Relief, Hope for Haiti Now: A Global Benefit for Earthquake Relief, and the Teenage Cancer Trust.[15]
