Now I never meant to do you wrong
Yeah that's what I came here to say

Well, if I was wrong well then I'm sorry
But don't let it stand in our way

But my head just aches when I think of
The things that I shouldn't have done

But life is for living we all know
And I don't want to live it alone

And you sing
ahhhhh, ahhhh, ahhhh
And you sing
ahhhh, ahhhh, ahhhh
And you sing
ahhhh, ahhhh, ahhhh ahhhh

    General CommentThis is a beautiful song about how bad he feels for doing someone wrong and how he misses them so much. He knows "Life is for Living" but he doesn't care because he would rather be dead than without them.

    Coldplay lyrics are often simple but they are so powerful because of the music and vocals, and this song is no exception. I think the "Ah, ah, oh"'s at the end are something like cries of regret and sorrow.
