Clocks Lyrics

  

Coldplay lyrics for the Grammy Award-winning song "Clocks" from the 2002 album A Rush of Blood to the Head.

 

Clocks Lyrics:

 

The lights go out and I can't be saved

Tides that I tried to swim against

Have brought me down upon my knees

Oh I beg, I beg and plead singing

 

Come out of things unsaid

Shoot an apple off my head

And a trouble that can't be named

A tiger's waiting to be tamed singing

 

You are

You are

 

Confusion never stops

Closing walls and ticking clocks

Gonna come back and take you home

I could not stop that you now know singing

 

Come out upon my seas

Cursed missed opportunities

Am I part of the cure?

Or am I part of the disease? Singing

 

You are

You are

You are

You are

 

And nothing else compares

And nothing else compares

And nothing else compares

 

You are

You are

 

Home, home where I wanted to go

Home, home where I wanted to go

Home, home where I wanted to go

Home, home where I wanted to go

 

Clocks: Background

"Clocks" was written by Coldplay band members Guy Berryman, Johnny Buckland, Will Champion and Chris Martin. Coldplay vocalist Chris Martin developed the main piano melody of "Clocks." Chris Martin's cryptic lyrics for "Clocks" convey a sense of pain, urgency and regret. The dark lyrics coupled with Chris Martin's looped piano melody turned "Clocks" into a worldwide hit single for Coldplay. Despite the infectious melody of "Clocks," Coldplay had originally left "Clocks" off of A Rush of Blood to the Head when the album was presented to Coldplay's record label Parlaphone. After completing a brief tour, where fans with Coldplay tickets heard new material before it was released, Coldplay headed back into the studio to rework songs that did not make the album including "Clocks." Now fans with premium Coldplay tickets can hear Coldplay's most famous single each night on Coldplay's Viva La Vida tour!

 

Clocks: Success

Coldplay released "Clocks" as the third single from their second album, 2002's A Rush of Blood to the Head; the song was Coldplay's second single in the US. "Clocks" became a Top 10 Modern Rock song in both the US and UK in 2003. The song "Clocks" won Coldplay the Record of the Year trophy at the 2004 Grammy Awards. "Clocks" has been used in several US TV shows such as The Sopranos, Third Watch and ER.
