I want to be bigger stronger drive a faster car
To take me anywhere in seconds
To take me anywhere I want to go
And drive around a faster car
I will settle for nothing less
I will settle for nothing less

I want to be bigger stronger drive a faster car
At the touch of a button
I can go anywhere I want to go
And drive around my faster car
I will settle for nothing less
I will settle for nothing less

I think I want to change my attitude
I think I want to change my oxygen
I think I want to change my air
My atmosphere
I want to choke

I want to be bigger stronger drive a faster car
To take me anywhere in seconds
To take me anywhere I want to go
And drive around my faster car
I will settle for nothing less
I will settle for nothing less

I think I need to change my attitude
I think I want to change my oxygen
I think I want to change my air
My atmosphere
I want to choke

Bigger better
Bigger and better
Bigger and better
Bigger stronger drive a faster car
At the touch of a button
I can go anywhere I want to go

    this has got to be my favourite coldplay song.. the guitar is amazing; especially towards the end, when it just goes mental & then spaces out.

    Guitar is great, the vocals amazing. Rather than society or american society, I think this song is an individual's eternal desire for improvement, and hence lack of satisfaction in life.

    Chris once said this song was written at a state of confusion and that, really, it means nothing. It's obvious what the lyrics are saying but they mean nothing to Chris, the writer of such a great song.

    I agree with Poprocks. Dammit, I can't think of anything original to say.

    For me, it´s only a Chris´s desire. He wants freedom. He wants to get higher. But he can´t.

    Perfect song!

    More mistakes with the Coldplay lyrics.

    Chorus actually goes:

    I think I wanna change my attitude I think I wanna change my oxygen I think I wanna change my air, my atmosphere I wanna choke

    Thankyou I am the master.

    Title Track is completely right. Chris considers this to be a very bad song lyrically.

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

When We Were Young
Blink-182
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
