"The World Turned Upside Down" as written by Guy Rupert Berryman, William Champion, Christopher Anthony John Martin and Jonathan Mark Buckland....
X and why
The land, sea, rivers, trees
The stars, the sky
That and this
We're part of a bigger plan
Don't know what it is
Don't know what it is

You and me
The land, sun, trees, the sky
The stars, the sea
Three hundred and sixty five degrees
I am the puzzle, you're the missing piece
Hang on a minute, just a minute, please
I'll come
And everything under the sun
And everything under the sun

What is this feeling that I can't explain?
And why am I never gonna sleep again?
What is this thing I've never seen before?
A little boy lost in a breaking storm

Pilots up, and away they fly
Some write your name in the summer sky
Life has really only just begun
Life, it comes
And everything under the sun

X is why
The land, sea, rivers, trees
The stars, the sky
Three hundred and sixty five degrees
All of the surface and the underneath
Searching the measures in this extra key, ah
And everything under the sun
And everything under the sun

What is this feeling that I can't explain?
And why am I never gonna sleep again?
What is this thing I've never seen before?
A little boy lost in a breaking storm

Pilots up, and away they fly
Some write your name in the summer sky
Life has really only just begun
Life, it comes
And everything under the sun

And you don't know that you've been born
Can't see the calm until the storm
Can't tell your right side from your wrong
Can't see the wave you're riding on...

    General CommentFirst off I am not fat..... just thought I'd say that,
    Don't believe me? check my page, it's got pics of me all over

    and second I didnt know if I was jealous because I didn't know what the fuck you were trying to say, in order for someone to be jealous, they have to at least undersatnd what their jealous about....

    I understood nothing about your comment.....it made as much sense as toielt papaer made out of steel wool..

    General CommentCorrection:
    "hide and sob, and away they fly
    to write your name in the summer sky
    life has really only just begun
    life, that comes
    and everything under the sun"

    I heard Chris Martin say in an interview, that he originally wanted to call the album Yin & Yang... but this was a bad idea, so he changed it to X&Y

    Yet this explains alot!
    X&Y can be seen as Ying and Yang
    X&Y in this song is seen as You and Me

    I think that this song is all about so many things being part of one, all under the sun... a unity in nature
    and so, a unity in you and me, man and woman.

    see the philosophy in the whole x&y album... beautiful!

    General CommentWow Loose Tongue.... your finally starting to not sound like a schizophrenic idiot... nice job.... you put together 5 sentances that somewhat flow with one another.... and have something to do with what your talking about.... your making excellent progress... perhaps one day, you'll be a real boy...

    General CommentWhat could have been just another love song is saved by an awesome melody. Really, all of X&Y's b-sides should have been put on the album, because they're all so amazing. Except maybe "Proof," but let's not get into that.

    General CommentWhoa, I can't believe Coldplay made this song. It's so unlike them to make such an upbeat song like this. I really like it. It took some getting used to but I like it. It's catchy...I don't know what its about but it's catchy.

    General Commentcorrection I think its:
    "Pilot's up and away they fly
    to write your name in the summer sky"

    Hide and sob doesn't make much sense
