"Adventure Of A Lifetime" as written by Chris Martin, Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland and Will Champion....
Turn your magic on, to me she'd say
Everything you want's a dream away
We are legends, every day
That's what she told him

Turn your magic on, to me she'd say
Everything you want's a dream away
Under this pressure, under this weight
We are diamonds

I feel my heart beating
I feel my heart beneath my skin
I feel my heart beating
Oh, you make me feel
Like I'm alive again
Alive again
Oh, you make me feel
Like I'm alive again

Said I can't go on, not in this way
I'm a dream, I die by light of day
Gonna hold up half the sky and say
Only I own me

I feel my heart beating
I feel my heart beneath my skin
Oh, I can feel my heart beating
'Cause you make me feel
Like I'm alive again
Alive again
Oh, you make me feel
Like I'm alive again

Turn your magic on, to me she'd say
Everything you want's a dream away
Under this pressure, under this weight
We are diamonds taking shape
We are diamonds taking shape
(Woo hoo, woo hoo)

If we've only got this life
This adventure oh then I
If we've only got this life
You'll get me through, oh
If we've only got this life
And this adventure, oh then I
Wanna share it with you
With you, with you
Sing it, oh, say yeah!

(Woo hoo, woo hoo)
(Woo hoo, woo hoo)
(Woo hoo, woo hoo)
(Woo hoo, woo hoo)
(Woo hoo, woo hoo)
(Woo hoo, woo hoo)
(Woo hoo, woo hoo)
(Woo hoo, woo hoo)
(Woo hoo, woo hoo)
(Woo hoo, woo hoo)
(Woo hoo, woo hoo)
(Woo hoo, woo hoo)

    General CommentIn an interview, Chris Martin said how this song relates to surviving through a near death experience. He said how he had been in a sandstorm while in a plane over africa and almost died, that's why the lyrics say, " 'cause you make me feel like im alive again."

    My InterpretationWithin the song, "Adventure of a Lifetime" by Coldplay, it seems as if the overarching theme of the song is about feeling 'reborn' again because of a female presence. But, it is not completely certain if she is an actual outside character, or just an extension of the songwriter's imagination. This piece is an energetic, enjoyable song that provides nothing but high spirits, using multiple literary devices throughout the lyrics.
    For example, it states, "Turn your magic on, to me she'd say....Everything you want's a dream away....That's what she told me." Here we see the female presence, referred to as 'her', in action, informing the singer to "turn his magic on." It seems to me as if she his telling him to let loose, and just enjoy himself. In response to that, he states, "Now i feel my heart beating, I feel my heart underneath my skin.." A hyperbole is used to exaggerate his current emotions, by letting go and listening to 'her'.
    As the song continues, the singer, Chris Martin is consistently persuaded to enjoy the moment, as if he were "alive again." In my opinion, I believe the presence of this female is symbolic of living life to the fullest extent, positively influencing every person she affects, including the man in the lyrics, Chris Martin.
    Towards the end of "Adventure of a Lifetime," Martin seems to become attached to her, stating, "If we've only got this life, then this adventure is more than I, wanna' share it with you..." It's like he's finally found someone that makes him feel alive again, and doesn't want to let go of her, whether she's real or not.
    But overall, the style and sounds of this song are very uplifting, and ultimately provide a message to cherish and enjoy life, treating every day like you're alive again.
