Fix Yourself

May 17, 2009

You’ve probably heard the Coldplay song, “Fix You.” Great song. It’s a relationship song, and Chris Martin is presumably singing to his wife about how he’ll take care of her and make things better when they’re bad. Thus, the title of the song.

Now, Chris Martin’s not the world’s best lyricist, but there’s a line in this song that never fails to make me gulp:

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 look for my mistakes

That line in bold kills me. Shivers every time I hear it. Sometimes tears. Because sometimes you have to fix yourself before you can fix anyone else.

I think the world would be a helluva lot better place if more people looked for their own mistakes rather than looking for someone else’s.
