honey, it's been a long time coming, and I can't stop now
such a long time running, and I can't stop now
do you hear my heart beating?

can you hear that sound?
'cause I can't help thinking that I don't look down

.

and then I looked up at the sun and I could see
oh, the way that gravity turns for you and me
and then I looked up at the sky
.
and saw the sun
and the way that gravity turns on everyone
on everyone; baby,

.

it's been a long time waiting, such a long, long time
and I can't stop smiling, oh I can't stop now
do you hear my heart beating?
do you hear that sound?
'cause I can't stop crying and I won't look down;
and then I looked up at the sun and I could see

.
.
oh, the way that gravity turns on you and me
and then I looked up at the sun and saw the sky
and the way that gravity pulls on you and I
on you and I

I would have said I wasn't a fan of Coldplay--but I really like this one.
Very nice over a cuppa coffee in the wee light of morning. :-)

Thank you, ma'am.

I, like the view said...

oh, but mel, it's making me cry. . .

(possibly I was sad already this morning, before this)

. . .reminds me of one of those things that "just was"

)-:

might have to listen to The Penguin Cafe Orchestra's Bean Fields to cheer myself up

and that's the trick, eh, about being down - look up

Don't you feel it growin', day by day
People gettin' ready for the news
Some are happy, some are sad
Oh, we got to let the music play
What the people need
Is a way to make em smile
It ain't so hard to do if you know how
Gotta get a message
Get it on through
Oh now mama, don't you ask me why

Oh, oh, listen to the music
Oh, oh, listen to the music
Oh, oh, listen to the music
All the time

Well I know, you know better
Everything I say
Meet me in the country for a day
Well be happy
And well dance
Oh, were gonna dance our blues away
And if I'm feelin' good to you
And you're feelin good to me
There ain't nothin we cant do or say
Feelin' good, feeling fine
Oh, baby, let the music play

Oh, oh, listen to the music
Oh, oh, listen to the music
Oh, oh, listen to the music
All the time

Like a lazy flowing river
Surrounding castles in the sky
And the crowd is growing bigger
Listn'n' for the happy sounds
And I got to let them fly

Oh, oh, listen to the music
Oh, oh, listen to the music
Oh, oh, listen to the music
All the time

It's a great song. It does what it's suppose to do, eh? It connects us and moves us.

Inches and seconds--
At our own pace.......'member?

it is a lovely...if melancholy...melody...

there are songs that take me to what "just was"...

I was gonna type..."music is magical" cause sometimes it feels that way...and I like the way it sounds when I say....music is magical...but it is more than that.

at least for me...music is intrinsic
