I’m in Melaka Today

I’m in Melaka today, so I have scheduled this post ahead of time. While I’m away I just want to share with you with the lyrics of one of my favourite songs. “Trouble” from Coldplay.

The song starts telling a story of someone having done something wrong… he’s in a situation where he can’t escape the consequences. It’s a song of regret, and a very haunting song. I can’t help repeating the song 4 or 5 times each time it comes up on my playlist.

It starts off with the piano playing the hook of the song… the three chords that will be repeated throughout the song. Halfway through the intro the rest of the band comes in, and then quiets down to focus on Chris’ vocals…

Oh no, I see,
A spider web, it’s tangled up with me,
And I lost my head,
The thought of all the stupid things I said.

Oh no what’s this?
A spider web, and I’m caught in the middle,
I turned to run,
The thought of all the stupid things I’ve done.

I never meant to cause you trouble,
And I never meant to do you wrong,
And I, well if I ever caused you trouble,
Oh no, I never meant to do you harm.

Oh no I see,
A spider web and it’s me in the middle,
So I twist and turn,
But here am I in my little bubble

Singing, I never meant to cause you trouble,
I never meant to do you wrong,
And I, well if I ever caused you trouble,
Oh no, I never meant to do you harm.

They spun a web for me,
They spun a web for me,
They spun a web for me

I’ll be blogging tomorrow about my trip to Melaka.
