Speed Of Sound

Coldplay
How long before I get in,
Before it starts, before I begin?
How long before you decide,
But 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 sand?
I'll start before I can stop,
But before I see things the right way up.

All that noise and all that sound.
All those places I got found.
And birds go flying at the speed of sound
To show you how it all began.
Birds came flying 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.

The sign that I couldn't read
Or a light that I couldn't see.
Some things you have to believe,
But others are puzzles, puzzling me.

All that noise and all that sound.
All those places I got found.
And birds go flying at the speed of sound
To show you how it all began.

Birds came flying from the underground.
If you could see it then you'd understand.
Ah, when you see it then you'll understand.

All those signs—
I knew what they meant.
Some things you can invent.
Some get made, and some get sent.
Ooh.

And birds go flying at the speed of sound
To show you how it all began.
Birds came flying from the underground.
If you could see it then you'd understand.
Ah, when you see it then you'll understand.
