Speed of Sound - Coldplay

How long before I get in
Before it starts before I begin
How long before you decide or
Before I know what it feels like
Where to, where do i go?
If you never try then you'll never know
How long do i have to climb
Up on the side of this mountain of mine


Look up, I look up at night
Planets are moving at the speed of light
Climb up, up in the trees
Every chance that you get is a chance you seize
How long am I gonna stand
With my head stuck under the stand
I start before I can stop or
Before I see things the right way up


All that noise and all that sound
All those places I have found
And earth's gone flying at the speed of sound
To show ya how it all began
Birds came flyin from the underground
If you could see it then you'd understand

Ideas that you'll never find
All the inventors could never design
The buildings that you put up
Japan and China all lit up
A sign that I couldn't breathe
or a light, that I couldn't see
Some things you have to believe
Others are puzzles, puzzlin me

All that noise and all that sound
All those places I have found
And earth's gone flying at the speed of sound
To show ya how it all began
Birds came flyin from the underground
If you could see it then you'd understand
Oh when you see it then you'll understand

All those signs I knew what they meant
Somethings you can't invent
Some get made, and some get sent
Earth's gone flying at the speed of sound
To show ya how it all began
Birds came flyin from the underground
If you could see it then you'd understand
Oh when you see it then you'll understand
