The title of the song tells us that there is a scientist. A scientist is considered smart, someone who knows how to put things together and come up with a solution. Maybe it is him that is the scientist as he is the one who is singing, and refers to himself in the song.(Verse 1)"Come up to meet you, Tell you I'm sorry, You don't know how lovely you are."From him saying he wants to say sorry, that gives us the idea that he has done the wrong and ended the relationship. The next line is a realization of how much he appreciates her."I had to find you, Tell you I need you, Tell you I set you apart."He felt like he had to find her, and tell her how much he needs her in his life. He wants to tell her that it was him that set the situation and tore them apart."Tell me your secrets, Ask me your questions, Oh, let's go back to the start."He wants her to do all the things they did before. To trust him with her secrets that no one else knows. To go back and have that reminiscent relationship and to go back to the start, to when it was good and strong."Runnin' in circles, Comin' up tails, It's only science apart."These lyrics tell us that he's been losing his mind and pacing back and forth from the break up and that they just need to realize that it's science. They have enough chemistry to come together.(Chorus)"Nobody said it was easy, It's such a shame for us to part. Nobody said it was easy, No one ever said it would be this hard. Oh, take me back to the start."He's realizing that nobody ever said it was hard or easy with break ups. Maybe he has nobody to give him advice. He thinks it's a shame, a tragedy for them to move on. The last line he is asking for time to take him back to the past, and to relive the times. Or maybe start all over again, a clean slate.(Verse 2)"I was just guessing, At numbers and figures, Pulling the puzzles apart."This shows that he was being immature, and just messing around with the relationship, not thinking before he made decisions. Forgetting the consequences of his actions."Questions of science, Science and progress, could not speak as loud as my heart."The obvious, all the answers and question couldn't describe what he's feeling. He's in pain."Tell me you love me, Come back and haunt me, Oh, and I rush to the start." He's imagining her being there with him, wherever he is, and her memory is so alive to him that he is almost hallucinating. Like she's his drug. He may not even want her there but her presence is haunting him. Her image just makes him want to go back to when it first began. "Runnin' in circles, Chasin' tails, Comin' back as we are."From all his thinking, he's imagining them uniting again.(Chorus)"Nobody said it was easy, Oh, it's such a shame for us to part. Nobody said it was easy, No one ever said it would be so hard. I'm goin' back to the start."The chorus is the same as the last, but notice that it changes in the last line. He's going back to the start now, whether that's imagining it unhealthily, or going to ask her to get back with him. But from the first lines of lyrics to the rest of the song, we get the idea that she didn't take him back. The way he sings towards the end of the song shows his pain and that he's grieving.Overall, I think this song is really touching and gives a real feel of regret and desperation to be with someone. Someone who doesn't feel the same as you, and you feel so alone in the situation that you end up living your life "going back to the start." It sends a message, that you should think before you make a decision and not to be a fool and get yourself into a mess that you can't get your self out of. Not to hurt yourself.
Coldplay Nobody Said It Was Easy
Everything is open to interpretation-it's personal. For me it has two meanings. The first is the lyrics about love and the breakup of a relationship with a girlfriend. The second meaning for me is very difficult to listen to at times. It has to do with the relationship I had with my mother. The last night when the doctor told my father and I that she would die in an hour maybe five hours (they were keeping her alive with drugs-she had a d.N.R.- her sickly body was so frail that cpr would not be possible anyway). I would walk out to the car and listen to a rush of blood to the head. Then when I felt strong enough I would go back to her room. I was in my late twenties when I had a severe problem with substance abuse. This took it's toll on my mother. Mentally, physically, financially and monetarily."running in cirles." "coming back as we were." my repeated attempts to drink like a normal person(not to mention drugs) "nobody said it was easy." trying to get back the healthy adult relationship we had. And most of all watching her take her last breath and dealing with her death. "i'm going back to the start." wishing things could go back to the way they were before the damage I caused-that she chose to endure due to unconditional love. "tell you I'm sorry." I never got the chance. " come back to haunt me." regret, remorse about what I could not change before she died. "tell me you love me." when I didn't feel I deserved it she randomly said: "I love you." shocking to me but wonderful at the same time-knowing she had forgiven me. Thats a gift that keeps me going during hard times. "you don't know how lovely you are." she was a rare slice. I have not met many people as special as she was. She was an amazing human being. One who will always be greatly missed. I could go on but I think you get the general idea.
"Come up to meet you Tell you I'm sorry You don't know how lovely you are I had to find you... Tell you I need you Tell you I set you apart"The song talks about a couple that split apart. The man makes the decision to find the woman to meet her and apologize and tell her that he needs her, because she isn't like anybody else. Or perhaps she is just different than any other relationship he's been before. "Tell me your secrets And ask me your questions Oh let's go back to the start... "He asks that she opens up to him with her secrets, and for her to ask him questions. Perhaps the reason why they broke up was because he wasn't open enough about his past and he suggests to start again by sharing their past. "Running in circles; coming in tails Heads on a silence apart"He's been trying to figure out where the relationship fell short. He thought or even bet on "tails" as in a coin toss, that the relationship was something, but in reality the relationship was "heads" resulting on a silence and apart from each other. "Nobody said it was easy It's such a shame for us to part Nobody said it was easy No one ever said it would be this hard Oh take me back to the start"He says that nobody ever told him that a relationship could ever be as hard as it turned out and wishes to start over again. Perhaps this time knowing where his mistake was he'll do things differently and make things easier. He regrets that because they couldn't make things work a good relationship was lost. "I was just guessing at numbers and figures Pulling your puzzles apart Questions of science; science and progress Do not speak as loud as my heart"During the relationship he never really knew what he was doing. He just "guessed" at figuring out the girl's enigmas, dissecting her or analyzing her so he could understand her. The questions of science are relatively easier to answer than figuring out his feelings for her, while at the same time, his heart can't say it louder and clearer enough than the facts that science and progress provide. Tell me you love me Come back and haunt me Oh and I rush to the start Running in circles, chasing our tails Coming back as we are He wants her to tell him she loves him and seek him. He wants her to be the one who's after him and he won't hesitate this time. Hell rush to start over again. Running in circles, meaning that they will still have no clue of how to work a relationship, chasing their tails, still trying out their luck (as in a coin toss, heads or tails), going back to how they were before, the way they are, assuming he doesn't want her to change anything about her.
From me another way of interpreting this song: I believe, the topic isn't any relationship between a man, a scientist and a woman. The song is about the divorce of religion and science. Since Descartes the human mind is divided by the human body. The scientist in this song apologizes to god for don't believing in him: "Come up to meet you, Tell you I'm sorry, You don't know how lovely you are."He wants to meet with god or the values god is described by. "I had to find you, Tell you I need you, Tell you I set you apart."Here the scientist realises that he needs god to explain the world as a functional concept."Tell me your secrets, Ask me your questions, Oh, let's go back to the start."He wants to start again and to see the world not in just the way science thinks, but to connect both ways of thinking. Without god science is "Runnin' in circles, Comin' up tails, [...]" and it's a shame for all the years they were apart: "Nobody said it was easy, It's such a shame for us to part. Nobody said it was easy, No one ever said it would be this hard. Oh, take me back to the start."The typical "Oh" can also be seen as a direct pray to god like an "Oh Lord"."I was just guessing, At numbers and figures, Pulling the puzzles apart."Without god it's just guessing what science does and that nothing speaks louder than god in his heart: "Questions of science, Science and progress, could not speak as loud as my heart.""Tell me you love me, Come back and haunt me, Oh, and I rush to the start." He prays that god will forgive him and that he is going to come back, so that science and religion can be reunited:"Runnin' in circles, Chasin' tails, Comin' back as we are."I think only in this way of interpretation, the title makes sense. I'm sorry for my english, I am from Germany(not that I would be proud of it :D) 041b061a72
