Swallowed

Do you remember in what context you gave me this song? Now I am giving this back to you because you brought me out of that state but the ungrateful wretch that I am, I have brought you into that state….

My love, even now I can only selfishly plead for you to remain for my sake.. I do not see so much of self-worth to hold you back.. yet you have to stay for this orphaned waif..

Coldplay – Swallowed in the sea

“You cut me down a tree and brought it back to me

and that’s what made me see where I was going wrong

You put me on a shelf and kept me for yourself

I can only blame myself, you can only blame me

and I could write a song a hundred miles long

Well that’s where I belong and you belong with me

and I could write it down or spread it all around

Get lost and then get found or swallowed in the sea

You put me on a line and hung me out to dry

Darling that’s when I decided to go to see you

You cut me down to size and opened up my eyes

Made me realize what I could not see

and I could write a book, the one they’ll say that shook the world

and then it took, it took it back from me

and I could write it down and spread it all around

Get lost and then get found and you’ll come back to me

Not swallowed in the sea

Oohhhhh Ahhhhhh

and I could write a song a hundred miles long

Well that’s where I belong and you belong with me

The streets you’re walking on, a thousand houses long

Well that’s where I belong and you belong with me

Oh what good is it to live with nothing left to give

Forget but not forgive, not loving all you see

Oh the streets you’re walking on a thousand houses long

Well that’s where I belong and you belong with me

Not swallowed in the sea

You belong with me, not swallowed in the sea

Yeah you belong with me

Not swallowed in the sea.”

    “and I could write a book, the one they’ll say that shook the world

    and I could write it down and spread it all around
    Get lost and then get found and you’ll come back to me
    Not swallowed in the sea”

    Those are nice lines!
