"Everything's Not Lost" as written by Guy Rupert Berryman, Jonathan Mark Buckland, William Champion and Christopher Anthony John Martin....
When I'm counting up my demons
Saw there was one for every day
With the good ones on my shoulder
I drove the other ones away

If you ever feel neglected
If you think all is lost
I'll be counting up my demons yeah
Hoping everything's not lost

When you thought that it was over
You could feel it all around
Everybody's out to get you
Don't you let it drag you down

'Cause if you ever feel neglected
If you think that all is lost
I'll be counting up my demons yeah
Hoping everything's not lost

If you ever feel neglected
If you think all is lost
I'll be counting up my demons yeah
Hoping everything's not lost

Singing out
Oh oh oh yeah, oh oh yeah, oh oh yeah
Everything's not lost

Come on yeah oh oh yeah come on yeah
Everything's not lost

Oh oh oh yeah oh oh yeah oh oh yeah
And everything's not lost

Come on yeah oh oh yeah come on yeah
Come on yeah oh oh yeah come on yeah
Everything's not lost

Sing out yeah oh oh yeah come on yeah
Everything's not lost

Come on yeah oh oh yeah sing out yeah
Everything's not lost

Now I never meant to do you wrong
But that's what I came here to say
But if I was wrong, then I'm sorry
I don't let it stand in our way
'Cause my head just hates when I think of
The things that I shouldn't have done
But life is for living, we all know
And I don't wanna live it alone

Sing out, ah ah
Sing ah ah ah
And just sing ah ah ah ah ah

    General Commentyou are and i am stronger than the demons of insecurity, fear, doubt, anger, frustration, jealousy. and if you emphasize the demons of optimism, strength, confidence, and love you will not be let down.
    its all a matter of doing it....

    General CommentI just love the way how Coldplay songs, and especially this song, can lift you up. That the song slowly moves from an depressive to a more optimistic sound. It first connects to your sad feelings(if you feel depressed) like it understands you.

    A great!! song!

    General Commentthis song along many others from coldplay has a way of making you zone out of your problems and travel on a euphoric adventure of musical greatness. the amazing lyrics coupled with chris's soothing voice is an experience that can't receive it's proper justice from my words. it would take coldplay themselves to write a song describing the feeling you get when listening to their music.. someone also said earlier that there is no need for drugs or alcohol, just pop in some coldplay... i concur

    General CommentI can't believe that no one else has commented this song. I think that this song is very well written and I like it a lot. I think that it has a nice little Emo sound to it and I enjoy listening to it a lot. I think that Coldplay is a pretty good band. They have some good usic with a nice Emo toon to it. At least that's wut I think. Well I just thought this song was pretty good and it suprised me when I saw that no one really had commented this song. O well I guess. I'm really into Emo and Old Skool Punk and I think that the instrumental and lyrics to this song are Emo in a way so that's like one of the main reasons I like it.:)
