"How You See the World" as written by Guy Rupert Berryman, William Champion, Christopher Anthony John Martin and Jonathan Mark Buckland....
Are you missing something?
Looking for something?
Tired of everything
Searching and struggling
Are you worried about it?
Do you wanna talk about it?
Oh You're gonna get it right some time

There's so much to be scared of
And not much to make sense of
Are you running in a circle?
You can't be too careful
And you can't relate it
'Cause it's complicated
Oh You're gonna get it right some time
You're gonna get it right some time

It's how you see the world
How many times can you see?
You can't believe what you learn

It's how you see the world
Don't you worry yourself
Your not gonna get hurt

Oh

Is there something missing?
There's nobody listening
Are you scared of what you don't know?
don't wanna end up on your own?
You need conversation
And information

Oh

Gonna get it right sometimes
You just wanna get it right sometimes

It's how you see the world
How many times have you heard?
You can't believe a word

It's how you see the world
Don't you worry yourself
'Cause nobody can learn

Oh
Oh
Oh

That's how you see the world
That's how you see the world

    General CommentThis is about the meaning of life. Searching for the way you see the world. Searching for Jesus.

    General CommentWhen life becomes almost like an illusion to you, it takes a lot for you place yourself back in reality. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite Coldplay songs ever. It boggles my mind that they didn't release it on X&Y. However, there is something intimate about keeping it a rather unknown song. I'm currently going through a hard time in my life, and just listening to this song keeps the flame going. It's as if Chris is singing this song specifically to the listener, helping them track down exactly what is causing these feelings.

    This song, along with most other Coldplay songs, is psychologically healing.

    General CommentCM is not a religious guy. I much doubt its about looking for Jesus. Probably just trying to find where he belongs in life, the right way to go. Super song

    General CommentAbsolutely amazing lyrics, at the moment really fitting for my state of mind.

    I would say this song is pretty self explanatory, you can't quite put your finger on what's bothering you, why you feel the way you do, but you will be assured.

    Probably the wrong meaning, its the way I see it though. When I first heard the song the lyrics just made my ears prick, they are so amazing, by far one of the best Coldplay songs :)

    General Commenti saw them perform this song and i was so proud to be a fan who actually new what song it was rather than being a band-wagoner. i really love this song. The lyrics are amazing and it makes you look at life from a persepective and makes you realize how you actually percieve things.
