"Rainy Day" as written by Christopher Anthony John Martin, Guy Rupert Berryman, Jonathan Mark Buckland and William Champion....
Then there was rain
The sky wore a veil of gold and gray
At night it was the bright of the moon with me
Time was just floating

Then there was rain
This town's foundations are crumbling
To the ground comes a bit of a tumbling
And time just floated away
We can watch it and stay and we can listen

Oh, rainy day, come round
Sometimes I just want it to slow down
And we're separated now
I'm down
But I love it when you come over to the house
I love it when you come over to my house

Then there was rain
And I spent the night with the Queen of Spain
My lonely little heart would've broke again
Times were vicious

Singing, deeper that the knife goes in the more you win
You win but with less than when you begin
Deeper that the knife goes in
Oooooooooooooooh

Ooh, rainy day come round
Sometimes I just want it to slow down
We're separated now
I'm down
But I love it when you come over to the house
I love it when you come over to my house

Aaaaah aaaah aaaaaah
Aaaaah aaaah aaaaaah
Aaaaah aaaah aaaaaah

But I love it when you come over to the house
I love it when you come over to my house
But I love it when you come over to the house
I love it when you come over to my house

    General CommentThe music to this song really sounds like some music from that video game 'The Sims'. Especially The Sims 2.

    Suggestions for those lines that need revising

    "I spent the night with the Queen of Spain
    My lonely little heart would've broke again"

    My OpinionI always think of U2/Bono when I hear these sentences:

    "The deeper that the knife goes in, the more you win
    You end up with less than where you begin"

    Don't know why, there have to be some similarities.

    Song MeaningI think this song is about two people who are separated, but the person singing the song is making the best of the 'rainy day'... the song has an upbeat tempo, which I think can be interpreted as a bright outlook on a situation that may otherwise not be so bright. I think it's about having a bright outlook on a relationship even when the relationship may not be perfect. I don't know, that's just what I get from it.

    General Commentthis song is about a couple who arent together at the moment and the person singing the song (in this case chris) is talking about how "time just floating away" while he isnt with the person he loves.
    "My lonely little heart would've broke again
    Time's still viscous"
    talking about how the time he isnt with her is cruel and vicious.
    "i love it when you come over to my house"
    meaning he loves it when he is with her he is happy when he is with her.
    i love this song so much, my favourite song on the EP.

    the Oh Oh Oh and the last paragraph is my favourite of the whole song just has such a lovely ring to it.
    coldplay have deffinatly done it again.

    My OpinionAnyone else think of Janet Jackson's "Runaway" in the first 15 seconds or so? Just a random thought.

    General Commentsomber + upbeat = this song. I think Chris is talking about his emotions on a "rainy day". They're apart and he misses her.
