You possibly can’t deny that Coldplay’s music Sparks is considered one of their most intimate and delightful songs ever. Recorded on their 2000 Parachutes launch this music is probably considered one of their extra forgotten tunes when put up in opposition to their extra Rock hits. Sooner or later I used to be sitting in a darkened lounge on a cool summer time night on Mass. Ave. in Boston and the music performed all through the room. I discovered myself questioning “what do the lyrics to Coldplay’s music Sparks actually imply?”
I took a better look and this is what I got here up with…
At first look there is a sure melancholy and darkness that exist on this music. While you take heed to the music itself you might have a gradual 6/8 really feel on the acoustic guitar adopted by a lightweight shuffle on the drums and a gorgeous repeating bass line that brings the entire music collectively. The singer, Chris Martin, virtually talks his means by way of the music, barely permitting the phrases to exit his mouth. It creates a really somber and unhappy impact. (Good music for any darkened lounge.)
The primary verse the place he says “Did I drive you away?… However I promise you this I will all the time look out for you” is a promise that although he is pushed this particular person away he assures he’ll nonetheless look out for them. He admits he is executed a unsuitable however tries to appropriate it by making that promise. This can be a very sincere and honest music that does not conceal any truths.
The strains “My coronary heart is yours. It is you that I maintain on to. That is what I do” are, at first, very candy and loving. However at second look, may also be seen as an addict who cannot let go of what they’re hooked on. It would not in all probability appear this manner if it weren’t for the strains that come later within the verse the place he says: “I will not allow you to down” however then within the subsequent line comes proper again and says “Yeah I’ll, sure I’ll”. Everyone knows an addict all the time has the most effective of intentions to give up their behavior however as quickly because the craving hits they go proper again to the dependancy.
It is virtually as if he is saying that although he does have the most effective of intentions, he nonetheless is aware of himself – he is aware of that regardless of how onerous he tries he is nonetheless going to fail her. He cannot refuse who he’s. It is quite a bit like that story of the scorpion and the frog the place regardless of how a lot the scorpion guarantees to not sting the frog, he can not help it when he does as a result of he is aware of in the long run, he is a scorpion.
