The Scientist Lyrics - Coldplay

Review The Song (135)



Come up to meet ya, tell you I'm sorry
You don't know how lovely you are
I had to find you, tell you I need you
And tell you I set you apart
Tell me your secrets, and ask me your questions
Oh lets go back to the start
Running in circles, coming up tails
Heads on a science apart
Nobody said it was easy
It's such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard
Oh take me back to the start

I was just guessing at numbers and figures
Pulling the puzzles apart
Questions of science, science and progress
sponsored links
Do not speak as loud as my heart
And tell me you love me, come back and haunt me
Oh and I rush to the start
Running in circles, chasing our tails
Coming back as we are

Nobody said it was easy
Oh it's such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be so hard
I'm going back to the start

Oh ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ah ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh
Oh ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh
Oh ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh

sad but lovely | Reviewer: MKC | 4/20/12

This song touches a side of me that no song ever does, Iam the kind of person who loves songs about betrayal. hate and anything against love. My favourite band is Bullet 4 my Valentine but eveytime I watch or hear this video I cant help it but cry. What this song means to me is that you should appreciate what/who u have coz any day it might be taken away from you.

Awesome lyrics!!!!!!!!

METAL TILL I DIE! WITH TOMMY ON THIS ONE! | Reviewer: Emily | 6/2/11

Right, i'm a huge metal head! I LOVE IRON MAIDEN, METALLICA, literally, i would die for metal! I love this song! it's amazing! people who smash metal are insane! give it a chance, i know there are some mega crap metal bands who try too hard but seriously, you cant beat a little bit of Iron Maiden, Metallica, Bullet, BMTH, Limp Bizkit, Lamb of God, AC/DC, Guns & Roses, Slash, Nirvana etc! theres so many! I really respect people who can understand that some people like more than one genre of music! metal is my main, then this sort (not quite sure which genre this would go in :S) and i dont really hate any of them!!! Emily :) xx

I'm with TIMMY | Reviewer: TOMMY | 5/30/11

yep, some people have a really weird opinion on heavy metal, others on coldplay. I for example think this song is an incoherent mess (i like some of their other ones)
@Moxi Doe: that's not what the song is about, it's what 3 lyrics somewhere in the middle are about

really? | Reviewer: TIMMY | 5/10/11

I'm probably one of the only people who enjoys both Coldplay and metal. I like metal much more than Coldplay, but I still enjoy them. But I'm getting pissed at all of these anti-metal "sophisticated" types commenting here. Hey Neologos: If you think metal is becoming mainstream, you're probably thinking of those annoying skater metalcore bands that I can't stand. Don't let that be the face of metal for you. And String, if you can find one maiden song that sings about dragons, then let me know, because I've heard almost all of their songs and i assure you that there are none.

To each their own... | Reviewer: Moxi Doe | 5/6/11

In life you run in to certain situations, where a song like this that maybe did'nt mean anything before to you suddenly fits perfectly and only then do you actually 'bond' with it. To me this seems like a song to 'the one that got away', wishing to start over exploring unresolved feelings but conflicted by awareness that it's not an option. Kinda heart vs mind thing... no? I love this song.

hhh | Reviewer: jess | 4/28/11

I get that the whole point of saying you're indie or alternative or you don't like mainstream is to be individual and to show that you can listen to whatever you like and it's not crap just because it's not popular.
But why would you hate something just because it is popular? People can relate to it and it brings people joy. What's bad about that?

Right. | Reviewer: Neologos | 4/27/11

Yes, provocative, you are so right about how Coldplay is so repetetive and tedious and mainstream and how Metal is so meaningful. I also love to listen to people screaming lyrics about mindless slaughter and all kinds of violence and stuff. Sarcasm overdose. Seriously, I hate how Metal groups demonize themselves and call themselves some kind of beast while in reality they are just sad, angry humans. Oh and face it: Metal is becoming mainstream as well.

dude | Reviewer: String | 1/31/11

Mr provacative, I understand that you're 15 years old and like to feel rebellious by listening to crap music like Dream Theatre and saying "I HATE MAINSTREAM U GUIZE R SO CONFORMIST SHEEP 4 LYK COLDPLAY" but do please feel free at any point to keep your skullfuckingly retarded opinions to yourself. Iron Maiden sing about dragons for fucks sake.

Music is music, just because you gots to hear a guitar solo and a 50 year old man who dresses like a 14 year old squeal crap lyrics don't mean you got to be a dick because some people simply prefer well written music.

Almost nonsense... but with a wonderful melody | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/10/11

I think most part of this song has no sense at all, but the mix with that wonderful melody gives it such a power...
The meaning reminds me Evanescence's "My Immortal" and "Hello"... sooooo sad!!! :((
