Fix You (4:55)

Cover of X&Y

From X&Y and 70 other releases

Fix You is the fourth track on Coldplay’s third album, X&Y. The song was written by all four members of the band, and was released as the second single from X&Y.

Reportedly, Chris Martin wrote the song for Gwyneth Paltrow after her father’s death. The organ played in the song is said to have been a gift Bruce Paltrow gave to his daughter Gwyneth some years before his death.

Rolling Stone, in their review for X&Y said of Fix You that “one of the best is ‘Fix You’, an unabashedly sentimental song where Martin delivers words of encouragement in a gentle falsetto, proving once more that no band can deliver a stately rock ballad like this one.”

The music video for Fix You was directed by Sophie Muller and included footage from the band’s two night stay at Reebok Stadium in Bolton. The video is now widely regarded as a tribute to the July 7th 2005 London bombings.

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

    Essa música dedico ao meu filho Vinicius, se eu tivesse as ferramentas, se eu tivesse a permissão para construir tudo novamente, eu escolheria nunca estar distante.

    'When you try your best, and dont succeed'............. then you consciously uncouple.... or something. And all those 159 shouters below should get a grip on them selves , and stop being self indulgent........
