Orphans

Coldplay

Songtext:

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 oh-oh-oh
Indigo up in heaven today
Woo woo, woo woo oh-oh-oh
Bombs going boom ba-boom-boom
She says

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
He went
Woo woo, woo woo oh-oh-oh
Tulips the colour of honey today
It's true, true, woo woo oh-oh-oh
Bombs going boom ba-boom-boom
He says

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 be young again

Woo woo, woo woo oh-oh-oh
Woo woo, woo woo oh-oh-oh

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 oh-oh-oh
I guess we'll be raised on our own then
Woo woo, woo woo oh-oh-oh
I want to be with you 'til the world ends
I want to be with you 'til the whole world ends
