Coldplay - Midnight Lyrics

In the darkness before the dawn
In the swirling of the storm
When I'm rolling with the punches, and hope is gone
Leave a light, a light on

Millions of miles from home
In the swirling, swimming on
When I'm rolling with the thunder but bleed from thorns
Leave a light, a light on
Leave a light, a light on

Leave a light, a light on
Leave a light, a light on

In the darkness before the dawn
In the darkness before the dawn
Leave a light, a light on
Leave a light, a light on

Rand Lyrics

Coldplay Midnight Comments
  1. Tony Vilaysack

    This song is an expression of regret, sadness, isolation but still trying to believe in the possibility of change. It’s a person’s mind and soul at their weakest point, willing to give everything up to not deal with life’s tortures anymore. The moment between suicidal thoughts and trying to be optimistic.

  2. David RC

    La mejor canción del mundo tenía que ser de la mejor banda del mundo y de todos los tiempos. En lo personal para mi no existe nada, ni nadie que supere la enorme calidad de esta gran banda 😌

  3. Toba

    Who is watching this in midnight, tonight ?

    The only song from the album I ever liked. So memorizing. Great way to snooze to before bed

  8. Jay L1471

    I love lying in my bed at night in the pitch black, just listening to this rhythm, beat and tempo to this song. It just takes me to whole new place. Mind stimulation at it's finest

  44. Gavin Mitchell

    I was singing the part at 2:20 and my dad stormed into my room telling me to stop making those awful sounds. 😥😥😥


    In the darkness before the dawn
    In the swirling of this storm
    When I'm rolling with the punches and hope is gone
    Leave a light, a light on

    Millions of miles from home
    In the swirling swimming on
    When I'm rolling with the thunder but bleed from thorns
    Leave a light, a light on
    Leave a light, a light on

    Leave a light, a light on
    Leave a light, a light on

    In the darkness before the dawn
    In the darkness before the dawn
    Leave a light, a light on
    Leave a light, a light on

  46. Callum Doyle

  51. Fer Vidz

    Midnight subtitulado al español e inglés

  52. Eye Said It

    Goddamn this song is almost like a drug trip but a good high

    Miguel Pacheco

    This was a drug trip for sure. Coldplay was definitely on something when they filmed this music video. I want some of whatever they were having.

  53. Anna Surányi

    Anyone else listening at midnight?🌚

    Azizi Love you

    Anna Surányi 2:00 Am 22th floor,I see the whole city 🌃 and Afghan kush between my fingers.! Lord.!

  56. Sean Kearns

    "The Gang Does Bon Iver"

  57. cyrilusone

    Franchement quand ce premier single est sorti j'ai eu très peur... J'ai cru à un très brutal changement de style musical de la part de Coldplay. Les singles qui ont suivi m'ont rassuré et cette chanson est devenue une perle rare.

  58. Marie Valdovinos

    This song makes me ugly cry every time, tears of joy and wonder 💗🙌🏼

  59. Mark Hughes

    Closed my eyes and thought I was listening it Bon Iver for a sec.

  60. Johanna Adam Fernández

    Chile 2019 noviembre violento. Dios vamos te necesito energía ancestral..

  65. Zain Chaudhary

    Coldplay you are a deeper person with your music beats

  66. Princess Doll

    Love coldplay

  67. Science Lover

    Are these 15k dislikers spreading hate on Earth? Or do they belong to Earth? Even Aliens would like this music...

  68. Deniz Demirel

    When the aliens find us, we need to let them listen to Coldplay so they don't kill us.

    Steamboat Sound

    Perfect escape plan. The Ace up our sleeve.

    Deniz Demirel

    @Steamboat Sound Someone better start a petition. Better safe than sorry. 😂

  69. Redst100

    Such an underrated masterpiece. Also Coldplay’s artistry is very underrated.

  70. Dax 'N' Kiki

    Reminds me of Soleil est pres de moi.

  71. Petra S

    Leave a light, a light on💓

  76. مهدي إي طو


  77. josé Manuel barroso


  78. Anson Hartzler

    This is how autotune should be used. Not to cover up the fact that you can’t sing, but to add an effect that is truly otherworldly to make something absolutely beautiful.

  79. David Harrison

    Amazing! I can't get over this song 😍👍🏾

  80. Mike

    As musica deles me acalma

  81. Gsavage

    Can we just appreciate the power of coldplay's songs. It's amazing.

  90. wahi jo tum soch rahe ho

    Finally found this song

  91. Mirko Pizarro

    I remember when this video was released. and received a lot of bad responses cause the differences between this and Mylo. Now I see, it's a total new classic of them.
    I love this bans so much

  92. Just Add Glasses

    Imagine them making an entire album with these types of songs, would be like Coldplay’s Kid A


    Beautiful _Salute ColdPlaY🎤👈🏼

  94. Iuri

    that's how you change your style, not that overproduced shit that came later

  95. Stupid Mario

    Why did they change the thumbnail back to the original? mistake perhaps?
