Drink from me, drink from me (oh-ah-oh-ah)
Then we'll shoot across the (symphony)
Then we'll shoot across the sky
Drink from me, drink from me (oh-ah-oh-ah)
Then we'll shoot across the (oh-ah-oh-ah)
Symphony
(So high, so high)
Then we'll shoot across the sky

Oh, angels sent from up above
You know you make my world light up
When I was down, when I was hurt
You came to lift me up
Life is a drink, and love's a drug
Oh now I think I must be miles up
When I was hurt, withered, dried up
You came to rain a flood

So drink from me, drink from me
When I was so thirsty
We're on a symphony
Now I just can't get enough
Put your wings on me, wings on me
When I was so heavy
We're on a symphony
When I'm lower, lower, lower, low

Ah-oh-ah-oh-ah
Got me feeling drunk and high
So high, so high
Oh-ah-oh-ah-oh-ah
I'm feeling drunk and high
So high, so high
(Woo)
(Woo-ooo-ooo-woo)

Oh, angels sent from up above
I feel it coursing through my blood
Life is a drink, your love's about
To make the stars come out

Put your wings on me, wings on me
When I was so heavy
We're on a symphony
When I'm lower, lower, lower, low

Ah-oh-ah-oh-ah
Got me feeling drunk and high
So high, so high
Oh-ah-oh-ah-oh-ah
I'm feeling drunk and high
So high, so high

Ah-oh-ah-oh-ah
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
So high, so high
Ah-oh-ah-oh-ah
I'm feeling drunk and high
So high, so high

Then we'll shoot across the sky
Then we'll shoot across the
Then we'll shoot across the sky
Then we'll shoot across the (then we'll shoot)
Then we'll shoot across the sky
Then we'll shoot across the
Then we'll shoot across the sky
Then we'll shoot across the

    My OpinionColdplay... They have always been a legendary band for me. They have meaningful and poetic lyrics, emotional songs as well as a conceptual style. Or maybe I should say they used to have. When I first heard this song on the radio I thought it was pretty good and I'd soo get addicted to it. I tagged it only to find out it was a Coldplay song. First I couldn't believe this was Coldplay's because it's so out of style and so pop that I thought Coldplay couldn't have become a superficial band like this. And the real dissapointment was when I checked the lyrics. Remebering the times I had a great time analyzin'Clocks's lyrics I was broken apart with the song's superficial lurics about money, drugs and drinks: stuff that only unqualified artists sing about. To sum up, I hope that Coldplay will realize that they have a lot of fans even if they don't become a band whi make music for the sake of money, not for the sake of art and emotions.

    General CommentDamn it coldplay what happened? The part two albums have been so meh. You used to make songs that I would listen to in a quite room with a warm light in mild winters with the aroma of coffee lingering around my lips. Sulking into sadness and then being lifted up and caressed by the lyrics and the soulful instrumentals, that's d what coldplay used to be....

    My Opinionnot the usual Coldplay stuff indeed but not necessarily less than everything they've put out so far. i particularly enjoy this song and find it beautiful. you know why? this is a happy song, a celebration of feeling fine in a great interpretation. sure there is drink and drug in the lyrics but you know what music is about. you interpret it the way you want, every people is affected differently by music. for me this line says it all: "life is a drink, and love's a drug" i feel high and drunk without drinks or drugs, you're here to uplift me and make me happy.

    to sum up, Chris might have wanted to write a a hardcore party song but it turned out to be a hymn for the weekend. don't be so negative, people, and believe in Coldplay. they know what they're doing.

    General CommentPer Chris Martin:
    "The original kernel was that I was listening to Flo Rida or something, and I thought, it’s such a shame that Coldplay could never have one of those late-night club songs, like “Turn Down for What.” What would we call it if we had one? I thought I’d like to have a song called “Drinks on Me” where you sit on the side of a club and buy everyone drinks because you’re so f—ing cool. I was chuckling about that, when this melody came—“drinks on me, drinks on me”—then the rest of the song came out. I presented it to the rest of the band and they said, “We love this song, but there’s no way you can sing ‘drinks on me.’” So that changed into “drink from me” and the idea of having an angelic person in your life. Then that turned into asking Beyoncé to sing on it."

    When first hearing this song, I loved it. The bass, the tone changes, everything. I thought it was odd that Coldplay would be putting out a song about drinking but upon listening to the lyrics, it's pretty obvious that it isn't about the typical way you talk about getting drunk and high.
    The thing I really love is just how it ends up feeling like an explosion of love and happiness. It feels like a love song but it's something that you can dance to and just feel euphoric when you're with that one person that lifts you up, smiling next to you. I also like that the video follows this theme.

    For me, this song feels like Paradise. Both songs are immersive and both remind me that there are angels and paradise somewhere to be found (even if just in your dreams).
