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

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

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

And high up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth

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

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

Tears stream, down your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face
And I..

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




About Fix You

Fix You is the fourth track on Coldplay's third album, X&Y. The song was written by all four members of the band, and was released as the second single from X&Y.

Reportedly, Chris Martin wrote the song for Gwyneth Paltrow after her father's death. The organ played in the song is said to have been a gift Bruce Paltrow gave to his daughter Gwyneth some years before his death.

Rolling Stone, in their review for X&Y said of Fix You that "one of the best [songs on X&Y] is 'Fix You', an unabashedly sentimental song where Martin delivers words of encouragement in a gentle falsetto, proving once more that no band can deliver a stately rock ballad like this one."

The music video for Fix You was directed by Sophie Muller and included footage from the band's two night stay at Reebok Stadium in Bolton. The video is now widely regarded as a tribute to the July 7th 2005 London bombings.
