Coldplay - Swallowed In The Sea Lyrics




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
And 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
Or spread it all around
Get lost and then get found
And you'll come back to me
Not swallowed in the sea

Ooh...

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

  3. David Kriz

    I'm not really a Coldplay fan these days, but 0:38-1:13 will always be one of my favorite musical sequences. I wish the whole song were recorded with only that instrumentation.

  4. Zayn Javadd Malik

    Fook, how come I didn't know that this is the original version and the one I downloaded is their acoustic versioooonnn

  5. Christiaan Jellesma

    This is the coldplay i love X&Y , the whole album is just one G-spot eargasm <3 <3 <3

  6. Josue Jamil Machado Bajana

    About two months ago I bought x&y and by then I started collecting CD and vinyl of Coldplay. This is one of my favorites. Just awesome

  7. Ncc0990

    I miss the old Coldplay

  11. Mike Byrne

    Rediscovering Coldplay all over again in 2019.. it's like digging up a time capsule

    David Pisau

    Damn true

    Blair Crace

    It truly is

  12. Jennifer Garner

    Easily one of the hidden gems of Coldplay this song.. it’s just beautiful.. such a shame it doesn’t get the recognition it deserves

  13. Luisana Roa

    Swallowed In The Sea -
    CORRECT LYRICS:

    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,
    and darling that's when I
    decide to go see.

    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
    or spread it all around,
    get lost and then get found
    and you'll come back to me
    not swallowed in the sea.


    Ooohhh...
    Ooohhhh aaah!

    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.

    Ah, what good is it to live
    with nothing left to give?
    Forget, but not forgive
    not loving all you see.

    Ah, 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...

    how tf is this not even over a million

  28. Nate Yeah

    Thank you.......

  29. Holy_ShushCabin

    Wow. It's IMPORTANT for listeners to realize that in this album, the Sea is the collection of women he COULD HAVE fallen for. The Sea appears in White Shadows. Beautiful album in need of attention.

    Henbush

    This song has many interpretations, even by Chris himself. For example when they performed it live in the AHFOD tour Chris said it was about the “power of friendship”, referencing the friendship between Phil Harvey and everything he did for the band

    Feles Mendes

    Grande som

  30. Tanner Peterson

    With what retotion said, I thought I heard almost every song by Coldplay, yet somehow I ended up finding this years after I listened to X&Y and it was my favorite album for years. How you ask? Apparently I didn't remember what all X&Y offered, so when I went back listening to their albums one at a time, I found this in the midst and it is just beautiful.I can't stop, wont stop listening.X&Y to me will always actually be Fix you, or fiX&You, because it helped my wife and I years before it was well known, and when we went to their concert in august last year, I asked her to marry me right after the song finished.Out of what we had in common, Fix you keeping our heads up was one we couldn't deny was the best. We played it when we were together and pushed through together, until we finally got together, then married shortly after hearing the guys play it.This whole album deserves so much more credit than it ever got, but it will always be my favorite, while also forever wishing it was named differently.
