Tribute To Coldplay

Maybe I'm a dork, or maybe I'm just obsessed with the music of Coldplay, but I gave myself a songwriting challenge using only Coldplay lyrics to create an original song. I'm not sure how much sense it makes, but it sounded pretty good when I played it out. It rhymes though! That's gotta mean something, right? lol

Enjoy:

You don’t know how lovely you are
Light a fire, a flame in my heart
Look at the stars, see how they shine for you
I know the sun must set to rise
I started looking for a warning sign
It’s true, look how they shine for you

Those Christmas Lights will guide you home
The Hardest Part was letting go
Nobody said it was easy
Come back and sing to me

The lights go out and I can’t be saved
For some reason I can’t explain
Look at the stars, see how they shine for you
Tears stream down your face
We dream of making our escape
It’s true, look how they shine for you

Those Christmas Lights will guide you home
The Hardest Part was letting go
Nobody said it was easy
Come back and sing to me
Those Christmas Lights will guide you home
The Hardest Part was letting go
Without you it’s a waste of time
Where do we go to draw the line?

Title ideas?

Aw, that was so cute. Maybe we could call it "Hollers of the Smoke"?
