Coldplay - Paradise

[Verse 1]
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'll close her eyes,
In the night the stormy night away she'd fly
.

[Chorus]
And dreams of
Para-para-paradise,
Para-para-paradise,
Para-para-paradise.
Oh oh oh oh oh oh-oh-oh
She'd dream of
Para-para-paradise,
Para-para-paradise,
Para-para-paradise.
Oh oh oh oh oh oh-oh-oh-oh

[Bridge]
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
And so lying underneath those stormy skies,
She'd say, "oh, ohohohoh I know the sun must set to rise"


[Outro]
This could be
Para-para-paradise,
Para-para-paradise,
This could be
Para-para-paradise.
Oh oh oh oh oh oh-oh-oh
This could be
Para-para-paradise,
Para-para-paradise,
This could be
Para-para-paradise,
Oh oh oh oh oh oh-oh-oh-oh

According to the Paradise Songfacts, the song finds Chris Martin singing of a young girl's dashed hopes and dreams of paradise. It appears to be some sort of sequel to Coldplay's previous single, "Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall," whose title is even included in "Paradise"'s lyrics. 'Paradise' became Coldplay's 2nd No.1 hit single on January 1st 2012. It was the follow-up to 'Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall' from their chart-topping, fifth studio album 'Mylo Xyloto'. Chris, Will, Jonny and Guy treated fans to a live performance and scooped the gong for 'Top British Group' at this year's Brit Awards.
