Glass of Water
by Coldplay



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
With ripples and the rhymes
He asked "Will I see heaven in mine?"

Oh that is just the way it was,
And nothing could be better,
And nothing ever was.
And they say you can see your future,
Inside a glass of water,
With riddles and the rhymes
But "will I see heaven in mine?"
Oh, oh, oh

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
And Televisions selling plastic figurines of leaders
Saying nothing at all
And you chime
Stars in heaven align
Oh

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

What are we drinking when we're done, just glasses of water.
