Fix You

Lyrics

play When you try your best but you don't  
play When you get what you want but not what you  
play When you feel so tired but you can't  
play Stuck in  

play When the tears come   down your face
play When you lose something you can't  
play When you love someone but it goes to  
play Could it be worse?

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

play High up   or down below
play When you're too in love to let it go
play But if you never try you'll never  
play Just what you're  

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

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

play Tears stream down your face
play I   you I will learn from my mistakes
play Tears stream down your face
play And I

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

Blythe Danner, the mother of Gwyneth Paltrow, and former mother-in-law of Chris Martin, stated in an interview that Martin 'wrote the song for Gwyneth when her father died and I weep every time I hear it'.

When writing the song, Martin used an old keyboard that his late father-in-law, Bruce Paltrow, to whom the song is dedicated, gave to his daughter.

Martin said "Fix You is probably the most important song we've ever written". Martin's word is gold.

This song deals with true love, helping someone in your time of need, and learning from your mistakes
The song is about life itself, about going through it, about falling down, making mistakes, falling in love, losing that love,
Just about everything that could go wrong... but in the end, no matter what, "lights will guide you home", wherever that may be, and you will have someone to lean on.

Let it go

To forget about something; to not worry.

  1. I’m sorry that you didn’t get the job you wanted. But you need to let it go so that you can focus on your next interview and your future!
