Fix You

"Lights will guide you home/ And ignite your bones/ 
And I will try to fix you"



I had a bad night last night. Actually, it was just a bad moment. But it landed me in tears, no matter how angry I was with myself for crying.

And I expected Sky to be put off or annoyed, because I know I could be that way if the roles were reversed. Instead, he hugged me, and told me I'd always be his girl.

Here's the song that should have been playing in the background.


Fix You by Coldplay lyrics

When you try your best but you don't succeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And high up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down your face
And I

Tears stream down your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face
And I

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you


P.S. Coldplay is one of the best bands ever. Just in case you didn't know...
