"Up & Up" as written by Will Champion, Johnny Buckland, Mikkel Eriksen, Tor Hermansen, Chris Martin and Guy Berryman....
Fixing up a car to drive in it again
Searching for the water, hoping for the rain
Up and up, up and up

Down upon a canvas, working with a wheel
Waiting for a chance to pick your orange peel
Up and up, up and up

See a performer, a diamond in the rough
See a bird soaring high above the flood
It's in your blood, it's in your blood

Underneath the storm an umbrella is saying
Sitting with the poison takes away the pain
Up and up, up and up

Saying we’re gonna get it, get it together
I know we’re gonna get it, get it together somehow
We’re gonna get it, get it together and flow

We’re gonna get it, get it together
I know, we’re gonna get it, get it together and flow
We’re gonna get it, get it together and go
Up, and up, and up

Lying in the gutter, aiming for the moon
Trying to empty out the ocean with a spoon
Up and up, up and up

How can people suffer, how can people part?
How can people struggle
How can people break your heart
Break your heart?

Yes I wanna go, yes I wanna feel
Yes I wanna know, show me how to heal it up, heal it up

See the forest staring at every seed
Angels in the marble waiting to be freed
Just need love, just need love
When the going is rough, saying

We’re gonna get it, get it together
I know we’re gonna get it, get it together somehow
We’re gonna get it, get it together and flow

We’re gonna get it, get it together
I know, we’re gonna get it, get it together and flow
We’re gonna get it, get it together and go

'Cause you can say what is, or fight for it
Close your mind and take the risk
You can say, smile and clench your fist
And see each other as a gift

We’re gonna get it, get it together
I know we’re gonna get it, get it together somehow
We’re gonna get it, get it together and flow

We’re gonna get it, get it together
I know, we’re gonna get it, get it together and flow
We’re gonna get it, get it together and go
Up, and up, and up

We’re gonna get it, get it together
I know we’re gonna get it, get it together somehow
We’re gonna get it, get it together and flow

We’re gonna get it, get it together
I know, we’re gonna get it, get it together and flow
We’re gonna get it, get it together and go
Up, and up, and up

Fixing up a car to drive in it again
When you’re in pain, when you think you’ve had enough
Don’t ever give up
Don’t ever give up

    My InterpretationIn my opinion, of course this song wanna tell us to not give up on what we fight for. the singer encourage themselves to break all the obstacles in their journey.

    Deeper than that, I think it's about how we look at this world, the world we live in. Everyone in this world has their dreams and what they want to do and achieve, but sometimes we just think that the life never gonna change no matter what we do. We think this world and everything in it is so bad. The world has been broken, no matter what we do. We stop to pursue our dreams and purposes.

    But if we watch the music video, Coldplay give us a new perspective of this world. This world isn't as awful as we thought. This world and every human-race activity that happen in it is so beautiful just the way it is. We need to see the world from a new perspective, stop blaming this world/make it as a reason of our circumstances. Do what you can do as hard as you can.

    If we fall, we gonna get up again, up again up and up
