My initial interpretation was much different, maybe because I’ve been following the political upheavals in the Middle East and elsewhere very closely. The word “Rebel” and “Next Generation”, and made me feel the song had something to do with the recent political and economic crisis in their entirety. The title “Every teardrop is a waterfall”- emphasizes the fact that no single teardrop is any less massive than an entire waterfall. It compares pain to a material natural phenomenon as massive as a waterfall and tells us, no teardrop will go in vain.
The beginning implies the act of drowning into self-belief, regardless of what the outer environment is, and irrespective of what’s the reality. The words “music” and “song” imply the figurative sounds in ones head distinguishing desires to reality. The second verse goes on to say “and all the kids they dance” meaning some sort of a demonstration. Demonstrating with strong self-belief until triumph. Freedom for the next generation.
A comma often denotes contradiction in sentences, whereas full stop denotes an end. The contradiction means in the sense that, the future will be different from the past. The next verse, depicts the pain and inferiority the person feels, the helplessness he’s been rendered with, yet he believes he’s in the middle to achieving some sort of a success.
Well, this is just my interpretation. I realize mine, sounds quit insane when compared to a lot of yours, but isn’t this the beauty of art? For one this might seem a dance song, for another, this might be a motivational soundtrack. Music is subjective, and this was my opinion.
Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall
There was an error. I was struck by the revolutionary feel of the music and looked up the lyrics. Imagined the Middle East.
Flag jdbenz11 on September 14, Flag musicgypsy on October 18, What an insightful interpretation! Flag UpperKato on October 27, Thanks – I like your thoughts. For me, for some reason, the title resonated with a somewhat different! I guess that’s because, a single teardrop is a waterfall, a single death is tradegy seem to pair up. As you say, the song coldplzy impling that every teardrop is significant. I wonder if the writers were aware of the contrast with this quote? Perhaps not, but it would fit with your theme of revolution; the irony being that Coldplay are not suggesting a million teardrops are just a statistic, they are advocating change, whilst Stalin was talking about repression.
Flag jct on November 08, General Comment In my eyes the song is about looking at life in a positive light regardless of what bad fortune may come your way you accept it and move on staying positive as life is what you make it and from this attitude happiness will be yours.

General Comment This is definitely a better song musically than lyrically. Thankfully, the music is so good that it makes the lyrics tsardrop far better qaterfall they actually are. This will certainly be one of my favorite mainstream hit singles ofregardless of what anyone says about it. This song seems to be about the liberating, revolutionizing power of music. In the first verse, the song’s narrator describes the feeling of losing himself in a great song, to the point that he coldpaly forgets about his world, at least until his reality comes to smack him in the gut.
The second verse shows us that music is the narrator’s form of rebellion- against his reality, regardless of how well things are going for him at the time.
The second half of the song is much more cryptic, however, and is where things start to fall apart lyrically. I still haven’t a clue as to what “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall” is supposed to mean, and it’s kind of odd for a song to have that title when it’s this uplifting.
I think that the chorus is attempting to describe the cathartic experiences that the narrator feels when listening to music, and the take-on-the-world confidence it builds in him, but I’m not entirely sure if Martin actually wanted to say something here or if he was just making stuff up.
Still, a great song from Coldplay, and the summer’s best song so co,dplay. Flag Thyrai on June 25, General Comment every siren is a sympohny And every tear’s a waterfall take the pain and make something beautiful, thats what this song is about. General Comment i think you really get to understand what the song means towards the end.
General Comment Agree with Loose Tongue, its like 5 different genres in one. Very cool, uplifting tune. Can’t wait for the album! My Interpretation After sifting through the comments, I think I’m the only one who doesn’t get the whole “music is wonderful” vibe from this song.
Because he is so shut off from society, everything that happens in his life is magnified completely. Every siren that he hears going down the street is like a symphony to him, and every teardrop is like a waterfall.
He is exempt from this monotonous life. Terdrop “heaven is in sight”, he could watedfall mean he is in complete bliss, or that he feels completely empty, as if near death. He doesn’t want to see another generation lost to this aa, and shuts himself inside.
We apologize for the inconvenience…
He would rather people wonder where he has gone simply disappearing one day than have people know where he ended up e. We as a band have been through some funny incidents in terms of people being aggressive towards us or whatever. And a lot of the record is colpdlay by a kind wsterfall fire which comes from turning that negativity into positivity.
And I think everyone in their life has something like that.
Coldplay – Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall Lyrics | SongMeanings
Missed you, felt you, wish you were here and all the other Pink Floyd songs I love Lady GuyGuy – what a marketing scam that is. Too bad Lambert has no falsetto But talk about your own personal dream cover band!!!
And now he has a place where everybody loves that he is I see a long profitable gig in Vegas. Like you can see it coming with all the turmoil that is escalating currently yes? I just hope they survive as much as I know z tracks that we have hidden with iz spare ipods and watedfall generators down in coldplayy shelter will. So we can still listen to their records “ings” after the light go out and the street catches on fire.
Here is the id of the lyrics. And some of you thought they were to “cutesy”. I feel my heart start beating to my favorite song music is all we will be all we have left to cheer us up And all the kids they dance nothing else to do at night, no MTV to watch anymore. All the kids all night heardrop more mommies and daddies to tell us to go to bed now – whoohoo!
Until Monday morning feels another life because the business world has collapsed – Monday is a brand new way of life I turn the music up ears still ringing from Predator missile blasts I’m on a roll this time no government left to prevent us from taking over the world with LOVE now! And heaven xoldplay in sight we are going to rebuild Heaven on this planet this time – after it burns down from unrest and intolerance I turn the music up, aaaaaah,that’s better tearrdrop ambient rules!!!!
Don’t want to see another generation drop have to rebuild the Earth correctly this time – there not enough resources left to screw up again like all the other generations before us, texrdrop if we blow it this last generation will drop off a cliff I’d rather be a comma, than a full stop some of us will need first-aid, but yet there will be a lot who just suddenly died Maybe I’m in the black ashes from the forest fires, GRBs, nuke plant implosions, etc.
Maybe I’m on my knees praying for the Second Coming to get here now that everything is equalized Maybe I’m in the voldplay between the two trapezes no more government entitlements left so we’re in free-fall and waiting and hoping to land on our feet Sirens will die once the squad car batteries do And every tears a waterfall we are out of water – so every tear is valuable and precious!
Coldllay some tears for the poor in spirit. So that’s the meaning – but its upbeat if you are warrior!!! Stick around and I’ll share my food storage and save a seat in the cave for you General Comment I think Krisko6 pinpointed most of what this song means. I think the lyrics “As we soar walls, every siren is a symphony,and every tear’s a waterfall” means coldlay when listening to music, or this song that takes you away, even the bad things are beautiful and don’t matter.
I think Chris Martin is emphasizing how important music is and, even if just for a few minutes, it can make everything great and your life just blends into the beauty of the music.
