I remember years ago hearing someone make a joke years ago that Coldplay music was only good to listen to when you were burning incense and writing in your journal. Well, I hate incense, but here I am, listening to them and writing in my version of a journal.
Music has strong memory associations and an often therapeutic effect. I went to this concert with Daniel many years ago, and when I heard this song today it struck a chord with how a lot of us are feeling.
Oh brother I can’t, I can’t get through
I’ve been trying hard to reach you, cause I don’t know what to do
Oh brother I can’t believe it’s true
I’m so scared about the future and I wanna talk to you
Oh I wanna talk to you
You can take a picture of something you see
In the future where will I be?
You can climb a ladder up to the sun
Or write a song nobody has sung
Or do something that’s never been done
Are you lost or incomplete?
Do you feel like a puzzle, you can’t find your missing piece?
Tell me how do you feel?
Well I feel like they’re talking in a language I don’t speak
And they’re talking it to me
