Weekly Soundtrip: Closing Walls and Ticking Clocks

29 Nov

This week’s “Weekly Soundtrip” has been playing on my ipod nonstop since Sunday. The song comes from a band called Coldplay and it is called Clocks. If you’ve never heard of Coldplay- you are in for a real treat today. This isn’t a new song to me, but I keep replaying it because it is locked in a deep discussion with my soul at the moment.

Piece of Flea: This has been one of the most challenging blogging weeks that I have faced, and I have failed miserably… Not that there are thousands of people chomping at the bit to read my thoughts anyway, but I am disappointed that I didn’t get at least one little thought out there in cyber space.

But it is what it is. I can’t turn back time. I know that. We all know that. And this song is a perfect pairing for that realization: “Closing walls and ticking clocks”. Ordinarily, it’s the instrumental quality of a song that stirs up my emotions, but not Clocks. The music, especially Chris Martin on the piano is amazing, but the lyrics are as familiar to me as air to my lungs right now. I can’t breathe without this song.

If and when you play the video- close your eyes and keep the sound loud enough to wash out the world around you. Just listen. You might feel nothing. If you were me, you’d feel nothing and everything at the same time.

Enjoy and Happy Belated Thanksgiving.


The lights go out and I can’t be saved

Tides that I tried to swim against

Have put me down upon my knees

Oh I beg, I beg and plead singing

Come out of things unsaid

Shoot an apple off my head

And a trouble that can’t be named

A tiger’s waiting to be tamed singing

You are

You are

Confusion never stops

Closing walls and ticking clocks

Gonna come back and take you home

I could not stop that you now know singing

Come out upon my seas

Cursed missed opportunities

Am I a part of the cure?

Or am I part of the disease? Singing

You are

You are

You are

You are

You are

You are

And nothing else compares

And nothing else compares

And nothing else compares

You are

You are

Home, home where I wanted to go

Home, home where I wanted to go

Home, home where I wanted to go

Home, home where I wanted to go

    When you’re listening to your song and feeling down vision this: Pigga fat swaying and bobbing to the music with her signature “giant” goofy smile on her face. She loved your song and I love you!
