Paradise - Coldplay



The Experience:

Chris Martin's falsetto sings about childhood hopes. "When she was just a girl, she expected the world."  Instead, life ground the girl's expectations into the dust like "the wheel breaks the butterfly". So the only paradise she has left is when "she ran away in her sleep." 
What we hope for has been so bashed into the ground  that Chris almost doesn't dare to finish the word: "para... para... paradise..." Can we make our dreams come true? Is it true or just forced hopes that "This could be paradise?" 

Music Video:
An elephant's long and hard escape to paradise... Which is ultimately being with his friends. Paradise is never being alone. 

My Take:
I refuse to stop hoping in paradise. If I won't get it in this life, I refuse to stop looking forwards to it in the next.

Ask Yourself:

Do I still hope to make this world paradise? Or have I given up my hopes calling my pessimism "being realistic"? Could this world be paradise? Will I make a difference?

LYRICS:

Ohoohoooh

When she was just a girl
She expected the world
But it flew away from her reach
So she ran away in her sleep

And dreamed of para... para... paradise
Para... para... paradise
Para... para... paradise
Every time she closed her eyes

When she was just a girl
She expected the world
But it flew away from her reach
And the bullets catch in her teeth

Life goes on, it gets so heavy
The wheel breaks the butterfly
Every tear a waterfall, in the night the stormy night
She closed her eyes
In the night the stormy night, away she'd fly

And dreams of para... para... paradise
Para... para... paradise
Para... para... paradise

Ohoohoooh

She dreams of para... para... paradise
Para... para... paradise
Para... para... paradise
Ohoohoooh-ohoh

Lalalalalalala

Still lying underneath the stormy skies
She said oh-oh-oh
I know the sun's set to rise

This could be para... para... paradise
Para... para... paradise
Could be para... para... paradise
Ohoohoooh

This could be para... para... paradise
Para... para... paradise
Could be para... para... paradise
Ohoohoooh-ohoh

This could be para... para... paradise
Para... para... paradise
Could be para... para... paradise

Ohoohoooh
