By the mid-2000s Coldplay was already a widely celebrated band for their rock pop music and thoughtful lyrics. In 2005 they composed a ballad that proved to be a healing balm for the broken hearted when “Fix You” hit the scene. Every verse is a scenario in which anyone can relate. Lyrics like “When you try your best but you don’t succeed” or “When you lose something you can’t replace” cut to the heart of anyone who is grieving loss or suffering hard times. The singer offers one piece of solace, “I will try to fix you”. I have cried my eyes out so many times to this song, but it always leaves me with a sense of comfort that, no matter what I lose, I will not fall to pieces.
