Electricity/When I Grow up

 

I can't really explain it
I haven't got the words
It's a feeling that you can't control
I suppose its like forgetting,
Losing who you are,
And at the same time,
Something makes you whole,
Its like that there's a music,
Playing in your ear,
And I'm listening, and I'm listening
And then I disappear

And then I feel a change
Like a fire deep inside
Something bursting me wide open
Impossible to hide

And suddenly I'm flying
Flying like a bird
Like electricity
Electricity
Sparks inside of me
And I'm free, I'm free

When I grow up

I will be tall enough to reach the branches

that I need to reach to climb the trees you get to climb

when you’re grown up.

And when I grow up

I will be smart enough to answer all the questions

that you need to know the answers to

before you’re grown up.

And when I grow up I will eat sweets every day

On the way to work and I will go to bed late every night.

And I will wake up when the sun comes up

and I will watch cartoons until my eyes go square

and I won’t care cos I’ll be all grown up.

when I grow up.

When I grow up (When I grow up) When I grow up

I will be strong enough to carry all

the heavy things you have to haul around with you

when you’re a grown up.

and when I grow up (When I grow up) When I grow up

I will be brave enough to fight the creatures

that you have to fight beneath the bed each night

to be a grown up.

And when I grow up (and when I grow up)

I will have treats every day

and I’ll play with things

that mum pretends that mums don’t think are fun.

And I will wake up (and I will wake up)

when the sun comes up and I will spend all day

just lying in the sun and I won’t burn cos I’ll be all grown up.

when I grow up.

When I grow up

I will be brave enough to fight the creatures

that you have to fight beneath the bed each night

to be a grown up.

Just because you find that life’s not fair

it doesn’t mean that you just have to grin and bear it,

if you always take it on the chin and wear it

nothing will change .

Just because I find myself in this story

doesn’t mean that every thing is written for me,

If I think the ending is fixed already

I might as well be saying I think that it’s o k

and that’s not right

and if it’s not right You have to put it right.

But nobody else is going to put it right for me,

Nobody but me is going to change my storry,

Sometimes you have to be a little bit naughty!

Coldplay 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

 

I used to roll the dice
Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes
Listened as the crowd would sing
Now the old king is dead long live the king
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

 

I hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing
Roman cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can't explain
Once you'd gone there was never
Never an honest word

And that was when I ruled the world

 

It was a wicked and wild wind
Blew down the doors to let me in
Shattered windows and the sound of drums
People couldn't believe what I'd become
Revolutionaries wait
For my head on a silver plate
Just a puppet on a lonely string
Oh who would ever want to be king?

 

I hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing
Roman cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can't explain
I know St Peter won't call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world

Oh oh oh oh ohh oh [x5]

 

Hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing
Roman cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can't explain
I know St Peter won't call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world

I’m Still Standing

 

You could never know what it's like
Your blood like winter freezes just like ice
And there's a cold lonely light that shines from you
You'll wind up like the wreck you hide behind that mask you use

And did you think this fool could never win
Well look at me, I'm coming back again
I got a taste of love in a simple way
And if you need to know while I'm still standing you just fade away.

 

Don't you know I'm still standing better than I ever did,
Looking like a true survivor, feeling like a little kid
I'm still standing after all this time,
Picking up the pieces of my life without you on my mind,

I'm still standing- yeah yeah yeah
I'm still standing - yeah yeah yeah

 

Once I never could hope to win
You starting down the road leaving me again
The threats you made were meant to cut me down
And if our love was just a circus you'd be a clown by now

 

Don't you know I'm still standing better than I ever did
Looking like a true survivor, feeling like a little kid
I'm still standing after all this time
Picking up the pieces of my life without you on my mind

I'm still standing yeah yeah yeah
I'm still standing yeah yeah yeah

 

Don't you know I'm still standing better than I ever did
Looking like a true survivor, feeling like a little kid
I'm still standing after all this time
Picking up the pieces of my life without you on my mind

I'm still standing yeah yeah yeah
I'm still standing yeah yeah yeah
