Interesting words from a impressive young artist.

I wonder where this Chris Martin's heart and mind are with our Lord Jesus Christ. Seems he may have had a bad time of it with a legalistic Church over there in England. Not sure. I shall pray for him to meet, and even come to, Jesus Christ, the Lord and Savior of the world. There he will find truth, grace, real joy, genuine peace, and most of all a love that is beyond understanding. He will also experience a heavy sorrow, not like the sorrow of this world.


"When it started we had high hopes;
now my back's on the line, my back's on the ropes...
When it started we were alright,
but night makes a fool of us in daylight.

There we were dying of frustration,
saying, "Lord lead me not into temptation."
But it's not easy when she turns you on...
since they've gone.

If you'd only, if you'd only say yes.
Whether you will is anybody's guess.
God only, God knows I'm trying my best,
but I'm just so tired of this loneliness.

So up they picked me by the big toe;
I was held from the rooftop, then they let it go.
Dizzily screaming let the windows down,
as I crawl to the ground.

If you'd only, if you'd only say yes.
Whether you will is anybody's guess.
God only, God knows she won't let me rest,
but I'm just so tired of this loneliness.
I've become so tired of this loneliness."


The second part of the tune is a whole new song really. He is definiitely a unique musician, and artist, and band, for it's not just Chris Martin is it.

Good thoughts! Coldplay's one of my fav bands and this is one of my top ten songs of theirs. Coldplay is one of those groups I like to listen to simply because the hauntingly beautiful music and because the longing for something more, something deeper comes through so strongly. It reminds me what so many people in this world are experiencing. What lostness. What emptiness.

Good thoughts from you as well. Thanks for popping by.
Coldplay is quite a good band, and Chris Martin is one of the exceptional artist we have in our day.

God bless.
