A Sky Full of Stars – Coldplay

Lyrics:

Cause you’re a sky, ’cause you’re a sky full of stars
I’m gonna give you my heart
‘Cause you’re a sky, ’cause you’re a sky full of stars
‘Cause you light up the path

I don’t care, go on and tear me apart
I don’t care if you do, ooh
‘Cause in a sky, ’cause in a sky full of stars
I think I saw you

‘Cause you’re a sky, ’cause you’re a sky full of stars
I wanna die in your arms
‘Cause you get lighter the more it gets dark
I’m gonna give you my heart

I don’t care, go on and tear me apart
I don’t care if you do, ooh
‘Cause in a sky, ’cause in a sky full of stars
I think I see you
I think I see you

‘Cause you’re a sky, you’re a sky full of stars
Such a heavenly view
You’re such a heavenly view

Description:

Coldplay has always had a place in my heart since I was younger.  It’s interesting, in fact, how they have come to cater their music to what the people want over time.  If one looks at “Clocks” to “Viva La Vida” to “Paradise” and now “A Sky Full of Stars,” the progression is drastic, but it seems to make sense.  By no means am I finding this change distasteful — rather, I think very few artists have been able to pull it off by lasting this long and making their debut during such a period of change in artistic demand.  The chords are a mild variant of your standard I-V-vi-IV progression (I highly recommend watching this video), and it’s a bright song at that.
