Hymn For The Weekend

Lyrics

play oh angel sent from up  
play you know you   my world   up
play when I was down, when I was  
play you came to   me up

play life is a drink and love’s a  
play oh now I think I must be   up
play when I was a river   up
play you came to rain a  

play you said ‘drink from me, drink from me’
play when I was so  
play poured on a symphony
play now I just can’t get  
play put your wings on me, on me
play when I was so heavy
play poured on a symphony
play when I’m low low low low

play I oh I oh I
play got me feeling drunk and high
play so high so high
play oh I oh I oh I
play now I’m feeling drunk and high
play so high so high

play oh angel sent from up above
play I feel you coursing through my blood
play life is a drink and your love’s about
play to make the   come  

play put your wings on me, on me
play when I was so heavy
play poured on a symphony
play when I’m low low low low

play I oh I oh I
play you got me feeling drunk and high
play so high so high
play oh I oh I oh I
play now I’m feeling drunk and high
play so high so high

play I oh I oh I
play la la la la la la la
play so high so high

play oh I oh I oh I
play now I’m feeling drunk and high
play so high so high
play that I shoot across the sky
play that I shoot across the
play that I shoot across the sky
play watch me shoot across the….

“Hymn for the Weekend” grew out of a desire for Coldplay to have a club song that people could dance to. Usually club music doesn’t have a lot of depth, but Coldplay manages to pull off depth as well as “pop hit” in “Hymn for the Weekend.”
