LYRIC

I tried my best to be just like
The other boys in school
I tried my best to get it right
And died at every June
This mountainside is suicide
This dream will never work
Still the sign upon my headstone, write
“A champion of the world”
I tried my best to stay alight
Fly like a firework
I tried my best to taking flak
But my rocket ship reversed
No referee, don’t stop the fight
Everyone can see I’m hurt
But I’ll stand before conquistadors
‘Til I’m champion of the world
and when I sail
I’m sailing west
(Though I might fail) knowing I might fail
But still I am hoping for the best
(In my dreams) and in my dreams
Onto my chest
She’ll bring the colors and say
“I wandered the whole wide world
But baby, you’re the best”
La, la, la, la, oh
Oh, oh, oh, ay
La, la, la, la
So I’m flying on my bicycle
Heading upwards from the Earth
I am jumping with no parachute
Out into the universe
I am E.T. on my bicycle
With this kid and I want more
I am riding on my rocket ship
And I’m champion of the world

COLDPLAY – ORPHANS

 

LYRIC

Boom boom ka, buba de ka
Boom boom ka, buba de ka
Boom boom ka, buba de ka
Rosaleem of the damascene
Yes, she had eyes like the moon
Would have been on the silver screen
But for the missile monsoon
She went, “Woo woo, woo woo ooh ooh ooh”
Indigo go up to heaven today
“Woo woo, woo woo ooh ooh ooh”
With bombs going boom ba-boom-boom
She say
I want to know when I can go
Back and get drunk with my friends
I want to know when I can go
Back and be young again
Baba would go where the flowers grow
Almond and peach trees in bloom
And he would know just when and what to sow
So golden and opportune
And he went “Woo woo, woo woo ooh ooh ooh”
Tulips the color of honey today
It’s true true, woo woo ooh ooh ooh
With bombs going boom ba-boom-boom
He say
I want to know when I can go
Back and get drunk with my friends
I want to know when I can go
Back and be young again (yeah)
Woo woo, woo woo ooh ooh ooh
Woo woo, woo woo ooh ooh ooh
Cherubim, Seraphim soon
Come sailing us home by the light of the moon
Oh I want to know when I can go
Back and get drunk with my friends
I want to know when I can go
Back and feel home again
Woo woo, woo woo ooh ooh ooh
I guess we’ll be raised on our own then
Woo woo, woo woo ooh ooh ooh
I want to be with you ’til the world ends
I want to be with you ’til the whole world ends
Boom boom ka, buba de ka
Boom boom ka, buba de ka
Boom boom ka, buba de ka
Boom

🎵 COLDPLAY – Champion of the world

After listening to the whole album on spotify I can say that this is the best song on the album. The style of the various songs differs greatly from that of the previous albums. Some may be disappointed by the more classic and less rock style.

In fact I like this album less, where the voices and the choirs take over the music and the voice of Chris Martin. Probably the band had the need to break a bit with the classic pop-rock that made all the songs of real hits.

The first part of the text is in Igbo language, a language of an African ethnic group that lives in Nigeria and the translation is:

What are you talking about, dear God?
For everything
God made it

Lo lo-lo-lo lo oh
Ee-yo-ee-yo-ee-yo-ee-yeah
Lo lo-lo-lo lo

So I’m flying on my bicycle

Out into the universe
I have E.T. on my bicycle
Because giving up won’t work
Now I’m riding on my rocketship
And I’m champion of the world

 

TRADUZIONE TESTO

Gi nwa nke chukwu, gini ka ina ekwu
N’ihi ihe nile
Nke chukwu mere

Ho fatto del mio meglio per essere proprio come
Gli altri ragazzi a scuola
Ho fatto del mio meglio per farlo bene
E morire ad ogni duello
Questo versante è un suicidio
Questo sogno non funzionerà maiAncora una scritta sulla mia lapide, che dice
“Un campione del mondo”

Oh oh-oh
Oh oh-oh-oh oh oh

Ho fatto del mio meglio per stare tranquillo
Volare come un fuoco d’artificio
Ma la mia nave spaziale si è capovolta
Oh, arbitro, non fermare la lotta
Tutti possono vedere che sono ferito
Ma starò davanti ai conquistatori
Fino a quando non sarò campione del mondo

(Quando navigo) E quando navigo
Navigo verso ovest
(So che potrei fallire)Sapendo che potrei fallire
Ma, spero comunque per il meglio
(Nei miei sogni) E nei miei sogni
Sul mio pettoLei appunterà i colori e dirà
“Ho girato il mondo i lungo e in largo ma
Tesoro, tu sei il meglio”

Lo lo-lo-lo lo oh
Ee-yo-ee-yo-ee-yo-ee-yeah
Lo lo-lo-lo lo

Quindi sto volando sulla mia bicicletta
Uscendo dalla Terra
Sto saltando senza il paracadute
Fuori nell’universo
Ho E.T. sulla mia bicicletta
Perché arrendersi non servirà
Ora sto guidando la mia nave spaziale
E io sono il campione del mondo

Tomorrow (22th November) the new Coldplay album is released: ‘EVERDAY LIFE’

Everyday Life is the eighth studio album by British music group Coldplay, scheduled on 22th November 2019 by Parlophone. This is a double album divided into two parts entitled Sunrise and Sunset, both containing eight tracks.

On October 23rd the album’s track list was announced, instead the following day the double single Arabesque / Orphans was published.  On 3th November , the eponymous Everyday Life, the closing track of the album, was extracted as the second single.

Writing for The Daily Telegraph, Neil McCormick acclaimed the experimentation of the album, stating that Everyday Life “feels organic, analogue and playful as Coldplay dip into different musical genres, trying their hands at choral, classical, gospel, blues, folk, African funk, and a blissful slice of doo wop on ‘Cry Cry Cry’, with Martin pitched against his own varispeed falsetto.”

 

 

LYRIC

What in the world are we going to do?
Look at what everybody’s going through
What kind of world do you want it to be?
Am I the future or the history?

‘Cause everyone hurts
Everyone cries
Everyone tells each other all kinds of lies
Everyone falls
Everybody dreams and doubts
Got to keep dancing when the lights go out

How in the world am I going to see?
You as my brother… not my enemy?

‘Cause everyone hurts
Everyone cries
Everyone sees the colour in each other’s eyes
Everyone loves
Everybody gets their hearts ripped out
Got to keep dancing when the lights go out
Gonna keep dancing when the lights go out
Hold tight for everyday life
Hold tight for everyday life

At first light
Throw my arms out open wide
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelu-halle-hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelu-halle-hallelujah
Yes

 

 

TRADUZIONE TESTO
Che abbiamo intenzione di fare in questo mondo?
Guarda cosa stanno passando tutti
Che mondo vorresti che fosse?
Sono il futuro o la storia?

Perché tutti soffrono
Tutti piangono
Tutti si raccontano un sacco di bugie
Tutti cadono
Tutti sognano e hanno dubbi
Bisogna continuare a ballare quando si spengono le luci
Cosa vedrò nel mondo?
Te come un fratello… non come nemico?

Perché tutti fanno male
Tutti piangono
Tutti vedono il colore guardandosi negli occhi
Tutti amano
A tutti viene spezzato il cuore
Bisogna continuare a ballare quando si spengono le luci
Continueremo a ballare quando le luci si spengono
Tenetevi forte per la vita quotidiana
Tenetevi forte per la vita di tutti i giorni

Alle prime luci dell’alba
Spalancherò le braccia
Alleluia
Alleluia
Allelu-alle-Alleluia
Alleluia
Alleluia
Allelu-alle-Alleluia
Si
