“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”
I haven’t really followed Coldplay over the last years. But listening to tracks of their first and second album still brings up the melancholic side of my heart at any time. It simply reminds me of my younger self when life has been more dramatic and there were so many questions about life – and the desperate feeling of never being able to find all the answers.
So today it is way easier for me to laugh about the melancholic feelings and I already know it’s not the purpose of life to find all these answers. Accepting life as life with all its ups and downs and first of all accepting yourself with all your ups and downs – well…from time to time you are just a little kid, sitting in class to learn this. Smile while you are watching yourself. It helps a lot :)
So here’s a really lovely cover version of the song ‘Fix You’ (I know, its from the third coldplay album) by the singer songwriter Jesse Daniel Smith aka I am the sky. And it seems like I am not the only one whose heart is getting touched by these true lyrics. I love it.
