Young @ Heart Chorus

This is the most profoundly beautiful and moving performance I have seen in my life.


And now, the original version, just for comparison's sake:


I had a dream last year that was very similar to this...
Was it a sign?

The lyrics take on such a different meaning...
I was brought to tears.

Fix You

When you try your best but you don't succeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse.

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you loose something you can't replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And high up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Tears stream, down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down your face
And I..

Tears stream, down your face
I promise you I will learn from the mistakes
Tears stream down your face
And I..

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you.


Wow.

Amazing, isn't it?

As soon as I saw this, I knew you would respond to it. It is moving, isn't it.
I have some other stuff to send to you - so watch your mailbox!

This is my favorite Coldplay song and whenever I hear it, I get chills, but it's interesting that the lyrics do take on an entirely different meaning when sung by an older person. Thanks for sharing!
