Coldplay Violet Hill- Play By Ear


What does Coldplay's song Violet Hill mean?

Coldplay has been known for songs with ambiguous lyrics. "Violet Hill" breaks that trend. It's unquestionably a song about war. And it's the first Coldplay song that sounds angry. "Violet Hill" reminds me of the anti-war protest songs of the 60s and 70s. It is strongly rhythmic, with a driving, slightly discordant electric guitar riff, and a strong drumbeat reminiscent of soldiers marching. An instant hit, "Violet Hill" was downloaded 1.5 million times in its first 3 days on the market.

Chords To Coldplay Violet Hill
VERSE 1:
C#m
Was a long and dark December
From the rooftops I remember
A F#m
There was snow, white snow
C#m
Clearly I remember from the windows
A
They were watching while we froze
F#m
Down below
CHORUS:
A
When the future architecture
B C#m
By a carnival of idiots on show
B
You better lie low
A E C#m F#m B C#m
If you love me, won’t you let me know
VERSE 2:
C#m
Was a long and dark December
When the banks became cathedrals
A F#m
And the frost became gone
C#m
Creased cut stones and bibles
Are all out to fade their rifles
A F#m
And the cross was held aloft
CHORUS:
A
There in me and I’m…
B
When I’m dead and hit the ground
C#m B
Legs are cold, unfold
A E C#m F#m B C#m
If you love me, won’t you let me know
SOLO:
C#m C#m A F#m x2
CHORUS:
A
I don’t wanna be a soldier
B
With a captain of some sinking ship
C#m
With snow
B
Far below
A E C#m F#m B C#m
So, if you love me, why’d you let me go
OUTRO:
E A G#m A
I took my love down to Violet Hill
C#m F#m A
| There we sat in snow
C#m F#m A G#m
All that time she was silenced still
E A E C#m F#m B C#m F#m
So, if you love me, won’t you let me know?
E A E C#m F#m B C#m
If you love me, won’t you let me know?
