Coldplay: Glass of Water Lyrics

Updated on May 30, 2013

Glass of Water Song Lyrics

from the Album: Prospekt's March EP

Scared of losing all the time

He wrote it in a letter

He was a friend of mine

He heard you could see your future

Inside a glass of water

The ripples and the rhymes

And he asked "Will I see heaven in mine?"

That is just the way it was

Nothing could be better

And nothing ever was

Oh they say you can see your future

Inside a glass of water

The riddles and the rhymes

Will I see heaven in mine?

Oh oh oh oh aaah

Son

Don't ask

Neither how full nor empty is your glass

Cling

To the mast

Spend your whole life living in the past

Going nowhere fast

So he wrote it on a wall

The hollowest of halos is no halo at all

Televisions selling plastic

Figurines of leaders

Saying nothing at all

And we chimed, stars in heaven align

Oh oh oh oh aah

Son

Don't ask

Neither how full nor empty is your glass

Cling

To the mast

Spend your whole life living in the past

Going nowhere fast

And what are we drinking when we're done?

Glasses of water

      Rob, another great lens on my favorite group Coldplay! I love their sound -- Viva la Vida is still my favorite of theirs -- but I enjoyed giving this one a listen today! PS Great to have you on board the traveling squid! Thank you.
