A flock of birds hovering above
Just a flock of birds,
That's how you think of love
And I always look up to the sky
Pray before the dawn
'Cause they fly away
Sometimes they arrive
Sometimes they are gone
They fly on

A flock of birds hovering above
Into smoke, I'm turned and rise
Following them up
Still I always look up to the sky
Pray before the dawn
'Cause they fly away
One minute they arrive
Next, you know they're gone
They fly on

Fly on, oh
So fly on
Ride through
Maybe one day, I'll fly next to you
Fly on
Ride through
Maybe one day, I can fly with you
Fly on
Fly on
Fly on

(Don't ever let go...
Don't ever let go...
Don't ever let go...
Don't ever let go...)

    MemoryI always thought that this song talked about the loved ones who passed away whose spirit is in the flock of birds that endlessly hover above, to remind every day of your life that there is no death actually.

    A couple of weeks ago I met an incredible guy, a writer. In the beginning it was a crash only but after one day spent together I have totally lost my head over him and my heart too. But rationally I wasn't ready yet. There's still a lot of hurt left to heal.. I should have worked on my problems in the very first place but I didn't... and I told him an orrible thing so he is gone.

    Now, when listening to this song I think about him a lot and I hope to fly next to him one day. I have never had second chances in life. This is my Karma, no second chances, but maybe the karma can change sometimes. I miss him a lot. I think of him every day in a way that I would like him to be always happy and never suffer pain, sorrow, disappointments and stuff like that. Becuse this is exactly what I suffered and this shit polluted my soul.

    When a relation is over is sad, but it is much sadder a relation which ends even before it has started. Please dear friends who eventualy read these idiot lines written by the queen of idiots. When someone cheats on you and betrays your trust, work hard on yourselves to deal with the pain since the very first place.

    Do not hide it in the inner part of your self. Not every one is a liar ready to treat you badly. Trust is needed, always needed. Never say to anyone - "I don't trust you" without a real reason. It is such a horrible thing to listen to. If you want the new coming into your life, ged rid of the old one firstly. I hope to have a second chance. I don't know what I hope. I just feel stupid and childish for having written that. This song has now another meaning too...anyway it is beautiful. Coldplay is my favourite band.
