A Rush Of Blood To The Head Lyrics - Coldplay

Review The Song (10)



You said I'm gonna buy this place and burn it down
I'm gonna put it six feet underground
I'm gonna buy this place and watch it fall
Stand here beside me baby in the crumbling walls
Oh I'm gonna buy this place and start a fire
Stand here until I fill all your hearts desire
Because I'm gonna buy this place and see it burn
And do back the things it did to you in return

Huuuhhhh [x4]

You said I'm gonna buy a gun and start a war
If you can tell me something worth fighting for
Oh and I'm gonna buy this place is what I said
Blame it upon a rush of blood to the head

Honey, all the movements you're starting to make
See me crumble and fall on my face
And I know the mistakes that I've made
See it all disappear without a trace
And they call as they beckon you on
They say start as you need to go on
Start as you need to go on

Said I'm gonna buy this place and see it go
Stand here beside me baby, watch the orange glow
Some'll laugh and some just sit and cry
You just sit down there and you wonder why

So I'm gonna buy a gun and start a war
If you can tell me something worth fighting for
I'm gonna buy this place is what I said
Blame it upon a rush of blood to the head
Oh to the head

Honey, all the movements you're starting to make
See me crumble and fall on my face
And I know the mistakes that I've made
See it all disappear without a trace
And they call as they beckon you on
They say start as you need to go on
As you need to go on
As you need to go on

So meet me by the bridge
Meet me by the lane
When am I gonna see that pretty face again
Oh meet me on the road
Meet me where I said
Blame it all upon a rush of blood to the head

Not under-rated. Not over-played | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/17/09

I don't understand how people get that Viva La Vida has no feeling behind it. Just because it gives off a different vibe doesn't mean that it isn't just as good as the other albums. It doesn't change the fact that the boys aren't just as involved in the band and that they aren't just as good at performing amazing shows.

If you like Coldplay, you like Coldplay...none of this "I only like their old stuff" because it's all Coldplay.

Viva La Vida gives me the chills just like X&Y did, just like A Rush of Blood to the Head did, just like Parachutes did, just like all of their singles did.

Timeless? | Reviewer: The Cretin | 10/8/2008

to that review: i couldnt ever agree more! you just stole my own thoughts and wrote them down..
c'mon chris, coldplay first 2 cds and b sides of that era were just beautifull, dont panic, shiver, spies, sparks (and not to bring the obvious), high speed, green eyes, a warning sing, a whisper (even if it was repetitive it had its mysterious charm) amsterdam..
and b sides: crests of waves, only superstition, animals, see you soon, no more keeping my feet on the ground

they lost what made them so special.. now you can tell they write the lyrics and they dont feel them, its like an empty emotion, shiver makes me shiver everytime i listen to it, but their newer songs make me feel absolutely nothing...


if you are into old coldplay: www.youtube.com/user/carcassgrindcorpsesc there are a few drum covers made by me there



Not underrated, but not overplayed either | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/26/08

actually i didnt hate x and y, all the songs were great u just gotta get used to the album, u assaulted coldplay but no reasons, same with rolling stones, i dont have a bad taste in music cuz i love pink floyd, zeppelin and the beatles but coldplay has potential, this is only their fourth album, pink floyd ( btw) had 13



Timeless? | Reviewer: The Cretin | 10/8/08

Coldplay underrated? I have NO idea what the former 'review' is boasting about. Coldplay is severely overplayed. Don't get me wrong, Rush of the Blood to the Head is, undeniably, a classic album. It has strength and poignancy. However, X&Y meanders into extreme commercialism, the 'give them what we've got... again' mentality adopted by RHCP and Silverchair. Truly disappointing. Granted, they had some fabulous tracks on X&Y, but many of them reeked of the same formulaic arrangements. And Viva La Vida? Kudos to Coldplay for trying to break their mold, but they did so extremely awkwardly. Truly beautiful moments are spoiled by bizarre time changes and awkward lyrics. Yes, Chris Martin, you CAN sing differently, but should you?

You thought you might be a ghost
You thought you might be a ghost
You didn’t get to heaven but you made it close
You didn’t get to heaven but you made it close

You thought you might be a ghost
You thought you might be a ghost
You didn’t get to heaven but you made it close
You didn’t get to heaven but you o-o-ooh, o-o-ooh
Oh oh…

Please. Just please stop. And the title track, Viva la Vida? Can we stop that annoying back tune for just TWO seconds? Did the synth break and get stuck on a loop?

Coldplay... We hardly knew ye.



The gods of Rock music...... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/19/08

ColdPlay is definitely under-rated and deserve way more recognition than they are getting. Their music is classic and timeless; all the way from Parachutes to Viva la Vida! ColdPlay's music epitomizes life in it's inherently dynamic nature....mellow and abrasive...
Their music speaks to me and I love the esoteric artistry especially in their lyrics. Their music draw a lot of emotional energy which is what any good music should do.
ColdPlay surely is the standard great music should be measured by.
'A rush of blood to the head' blew my mind with its depth the first time I heard it as all the music by ColdPlay do anyway....
ColdPlay have definitely earned the title- gods of Rock music...undisputedly!
Viva ColdPlay...The best Rock band ever!!!

Oh, this song makes me shiver all over my arms and legs.. and my head to. The hair on my head is kind of moving when I listen to this song, 'cuz I shiver so much. The music and lyrics are so great, it could make me cry anytime. There's not many songs that's really touching one like this, imo.



I LOVE THIS SONG | Reviewer: lillian gilsvik | 11/2/07

I love this song. It makes me feel that the whole world is connectet... it's electric I'm crying when I leastening to it! It fill me up and explodes in my body like a flower!



fair_fact | Reviewer: siamak | 4/3/07

this song is something
it is electrifying
and no one could hate in my opinion
I love this band.
hope they get more successful than this!




Whooo. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/19/05

I didn't recognize it as Coldplay the first time through. It isn't their usual 'feel good' song. In fact it's rather nihilistic. But the lyrics really get to me. I like to play this song with Clocks, then this song with Speed of Sound. For balance. Like music therapy.

Don't look at me that way.



Top Song | Reviewer: Joshua | 7/25/04

This Song Is Another Great Song By Coldplay I Love Listening To It And Do All Their Music.
