Lyrics for Paradise by Coldplay:

Instrumental Intro

Verse 1
Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh
When she was just a girl
She expected the world
But it flew away from her reach
So she ran away in her sleep

Chorus
And dreamed of para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise
Every time she closed her eyes

Verse 2
Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh
When she was just a girl
She expected the world
But it flew away from her reach
And the bullets catch in her teeth
Life goes on, it gets so heavy
The wheel breaks the butterfly
Every tear, a waterfall
In the night, the stormy night, she'd close her eyes
In the night, the stormy night, away she'd fly

Chorus
And dream of para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise
Oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
She'd dream of para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise
Oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

Bridge
La, la-la, la-la-la
La, la-la, la-la-la
La, la-la, la-la-la, la-la
So lying underneath those stormy skies
She said, "Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh I know the sun must set to rise"

Chorus
This could be para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise
This could be para-para-paradise
Oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
This could be para-para-paradise
Para-para-paradise
This could be para-para-paradise
Oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

Instrumental Break

Chorus
This could be para-para-paradise
This could be para-para-paradise
This could be para-para-paradise
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh-oh

Outro
Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh...

Song Facts

The third track and lead single off Mylo Xyloto, Coldplay makes a true masterpiece of the song “Paradise”. With its jittery synths, orchestral hooks, thunderous drumming, and falsetto vocals by frontman Chris Martin, this is a win-win for everyone, and critics and fans alike.

The song is about how the real world can be escaped through dreams and paradise. In context of the album’s concept, it shows how the rebel leader Fly is just some shuteye away. The song describes her obstacles in life, and how she first noticed that the government system in Silencia is corrupted, due to Major Minus.
