Music Lyrics #3 – Everything’s Not Lost (Coldplay)


I admit to having a bias when it comes to Coldplay and their music. I have been a fan for so long now and think their early songs had maybe more power, particularly in the lyrics. While their song, Fix You, might be a logical spot on here (and maybe I will put it here in the future) I recall “Everything’s Not Lost” touching me through powerful lyrics and strong vocals.

So, here is Chris Martin and Coldplay sharing a song we should all remember when feeling lost in bullying issues or in our own lives. We just remember that when we feel neglected, everything’s not lost.

When I’m counting up my demons
Saw there was one for every day
With the good ones on my shoulder
I drove the other ones away

If you ever feel neglected
If you think all is lost
I’ll be counting up my demons yeah
Hoping everything’s not lost

When you thought that it was over
You could feel it all around
Everybody’s out to get you
Don’t you let it drag you down

Cause if you ever feel neglected
If you think that all is lost
I’ll be counting up my demons yeah
Hoping everything’s not lost

If you ever feel neglected
If you think all is lost
I’ll be counting up my demons yeah
Hoping everything’s not lost

Singing out
Oh oh oh yeah, oh oh yeah, oh oh yeah
Everything’s not lost

Come on yeah oh oh yeah come on yeah
Everything’s not lost

Oh oh oh yeah oh oh yeah oh oh yeah
And everything’s not lost

Come on yeah oh oh yeah come on yeah
Come on yeah oh oh yeah come on yeah
Everything’s not lost

Sing out yeah oh oh yeah come on yeah
Everything’s not lost

Come on yeah oh oh yeah sing out yeah
Everything’s not lost

  1. I never thought that they will play this again on their concert. Well, anyways, this song is a whole lot better for managing bullying rather than songs that actually depicts bullying. I listened to Fort Minor ‘Slip Out the Back’ and it sent shivers down my spine. It has to be about bullying. You guys might wanna give it a try but I don’t know . . . . . .

  2. One more thing, even though ‘Fix You’ is a touching song (it touches me too actually), it’s a bit overrated I think, I agree with this article. Coldplay has very good songs if you feel like in the mood to reflect your life; from relationships to other things. I’m a Coldplayer sooooo yes, I do know a lot of their songs.

  3. I also forgot to mention that on the album cut of this song, they add the hidden song called “Life is Worth Living” (appropriate) at the end of it. The lyrics go:

    “Now i never meant to do you wrong that’s what i came here to say that if i was wrong then i’m sorry don’t let it stand in our way ‘cos my head just aches when i think of the things that i shouldn’t have done but life is for living we all know and i don’t want to live it alone.”

    Very appropriate
