Coldplay – Èkó

Èkó

[Verse 1]
Joseph rode in on a beam of light
Stray dogs to welcome him, fights, corrugate cathedrals
The sight of the pilgrim
Going nowhere in millions of cars

Lagos a dream in the distance
From promises he'd made behind
Where there was no harvest
But he missed the sky and its circus
And countless the stars

[Chorus]
In Africa, the rivers are perfectly deep and beautifully wide
In Africa, the Mothers will sing you to sleep
And say "it's alright, child, it's alright"

[Chorus]
In Africa, we dance in the water and hold each other so tight
In Africa, the Mothers will sing you to sleep
And say "it's alright child, it's alright"

[Verse 2]
Joseph rode in on a beam of light
Dreamed of his queen by his side
There'll be a beautiful sunset
And you'll be a beautiful bride
