"Help Is Round the Corner" as written by Guy Rupert Berryman, Jonathan Mark Buckland, William Champion and Christopher Anthony John Martin....
Stuck here
In the middle of no where
With a headache
And a heavy heart

Oh well nothing
Was going quite right here
And I'm tired
I can't play no part

Come on come on
Oh what a stake
I'm in
Come on come on
Why won't it just
Sake in
The help is just around the corner
For us

Oh my head
Just won't stop achin'
I'm sat here lickin' my ruins
I'm shattered
But I really doesn't matter
'Cause my rescue is gonna be here soon

Come on come on
Oh what a stake
I'm in
Come on come on
Why won't it just
Sake in
The help is just around the corner
For us
The help is just around the corner
For us
Oh the help is just around the corner
For us

    General CommentI can't believe no one has commented on this song yet. It's so awesome.

    Obviously, it's a guy at wit's end. He's burned out, strung out, and doesn't know what to do. He's just clinging to the hope that, as the title says, help is just around the corner. I think having the song be just Chris and the guitar makes it so much more personal and emotional. You can just hear the desperation in his voice, the pleading for some relief, even if only for a short while.

    I first heard this song in the MTV movie "Wasted," about the high school students in Plano, TX who died of heroin overdoses. They play it right as the clean kid track-star is about to overdose on his first ingestion of heroin (sorry if I ruined it for you).

    Anyway, it's one of my all-time favourites.

    General Commentyeah, more posts needed on this one. I think song perfectly describes feeling totaly dejected and not being able to do anything but sit there and think how badly its all gone wrong. Even the thought of help is not comforting, whatever that help may be.

    General Commenti thought of the "help just around the corner" as death. if he kills himself, there will be no more pain. that's a whole lot better than what he's going through now.

    General Commenti think he's trying to convince himself that things are going to be ok... whether for himself, or "us" as in maybe the human race as a whole. but he's not really sure. and thats why he's trying to convince himself. "why wont it just sink in?". but he has his doubts.

    General CommentThis song is the most beautiful song I've ever heard! I love Coldplay and this song...
    I think that this is NOT a sad song, because help is just round the corner!!! I know these emotions.

    General CommentI like the fact that you can hear traffic at the end - probably Lonodn trafiic. It shows the song was recorded in an intimate studio, which gives it that feel.

    General Commentits all about this man who is waiting for something to come around the corner and save him. he has obvioulsy got nothing left going for him he has either lost someone or everything. OR this song is about him and his girl who have been through so much and now they arent together but he hasnt given up hope and help is around the corner for them.
    either way its a beautiful song and its a shame its only a b-side track and that not many people will know its beauty.

    My InterpretationI think he may be talking about God. Help is just around the corner for us, with "us" signifying the human race as well as ourselves as individuals, in the form of salvation after death, be that soon in the future or far off. Just my take.
