coldplay’s original words in quotes, shere-akrhan’s words not in quotes

“Just because I’m losing
Doesn’t mean I’m lost
Doesn’t mean I’ll stop
Doesn’t mean I would cross”

“Just because I’m hurting
Doesn’t mean I’m hurt
Doesn’t mean I didn’t get
What I deserved
No better and no worse”

“I just got lost
Every river that I tried to cross
Every door I ever tried was locked
Ohhh and I’m…
Just waiting ’til the shine wears off”

I’m on the corner
Of Fullerton and Pulaski
I just missed my six o’clock ride
I’m looking for a taxi
I don’t carry a side –
Arms are reaching from the curb
Safety’s off while eyes
Fire hydrant stares
Warning flares intended to scare
Away the day is winding down
There’s not a minute to spare
Cling, cling the sound of tin knocking
I got my set of keys
Shaking in my fingertips
What you clocking
The alarm chimes
The end is miles gone
I won’t be able to unlock the dreams
Every turn feels wrong
I can’t even taste it on the lips
And Shere – Akrhan’s mom has always said
There’ll be speed bumps, limits and one ways
Stop lights at junctions
Selfish, selfless, good or bad
I’ll have to make decisions
Then and now, got to have
What it takes, love and hate
And I’m looking for the crossroads
That number I didn’t invest
The time to memorize
Cause I never thought
I’d get lost, hypnotized
While swimming laps
Protected in my own lane
In a bullet – proof vest
Turn after toss, I flip turn
It seems like I got no other choice except to walk
Forever while the streets are whispering fearful talk
And it reminds me that I’m inches from the edge
I don’t have anywhere to duck my head
Feeling lost with a spotlight on my treads
Looking through a lens blurred at the end
I’m lost like Coldplay said

“I just got lost
Every river that I tried to cross
Every door I ever tried was locked
Ohhh and I’m…
Just waiting ’til the shine wears off”

“I just got lost
Every river that I tried to cross
Every door I ever tried was locked
Ohhh and I’m…
Just waiting ’til the shine wears off”

It tastes so good
But I lost the feeling
Over and over
Again it went so well
But kept falling to the bottom of the well
And all I got and know
Is I feel so close to lost
I can hear the echoes
I’m jumping fences to find it
Stealth toned in PF Flyers
Ya – Ya, I’m running like Benny the Jet
From the Beast I’ll discover love
Its collection of memoirs
Cause heroes get remembered
I want to forever glow
Legendary, never, never forget
ET, can I borrow your phone
I dire for home
His glowing finger points to the air
The number one in foam
Saying everyone wants to go
Somewhere different so
Not everyone can fit on the po – dium
I know I can’t glide
Into the finish line
I’ll find my way
Guided by the North Star and street signs
And I’ll take photographs in my mind
Mapmaking with a legend
On the top and right
In case I circle around
I’ll know the distance chasing cars
Like my own tail
I swallow concrete and time
Fill up on wise fairy tales
Wallow until the next time
Cause hollow never shines
And everyone remembers
Legends fall to lost
Along the way
What they find at the end
Is they’d never made a name
If it weren’t for being lost that day
Even a Legend needs to be tamed

“You might be a big fish
In a little pond
Doesn’t mean you’ve won
Cause along may come
A bigger one”

“And you’ll be lost
Every river that you tried to cross
Every gun you ever held went off
Ohhh and I’m…
Just waiting until the firing stopped
Ohhh and I’m…
Just waiting ’til the shine wears off”
