Following our recent posting of Mylo Xyloto's Side A lyrics here on Coldplay.com, we're back with the lyrics to the songs on Side B.

MAJOR MINUS

They got one eye watching you
One eye on what you do
So be careful who it is you’re talking to
They got one eye watching you
One eye on what you do
So be careful what it is you’re trying to do
And be careful when you’re walking into view
Just be careful when you’re walking into view

Ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh oooh
Got one eye on the road and one on you
Ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh oooh
Got one eye on the road and one on

They got one eye watching you
One eye on what you do
So be careful 'cos nothing they say is true
No don’t believe a word
It's just us against the world
And we just got to turn up to be heard
Hear the crocodiles ticking round the world
Hear those crocodiles ticking, they go ticking round the world

Ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh oooh
Got one eye on the road and one on you
Ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh oooh
Got one eye on the road and
You could hear them climbing the stairs
Got my right side fighting while my left hides under the chairs

Ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh oooh
Got one eye on the road and one on you
Ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh oooh
Got one eye on the road and one on you

UFO

Lord I don’t know which way I am going
Which way the river’s going to flow
It just seems that upstream I keep rowing
Still got such a long way to go
Still got such a long way to go

And that light hits your eyes
I know I swear we’ll find somewhere
The streets are paved with gold

Bullets fly split the sky
But that's alright sometimes sunlight comes streaming through the holes

Ohohoh

PRINCESS OF CHINA

Once upon a time somebody ran
Somebody ran away saying ‘fast as I can
I got to go, I got to go’
Once upon a time we fell apart
You’re holding in your hands the two halves of my heart
Oh oh oh, ohohohoh

Oh ohohohoh, ohohohohoh, ohohohoh, oh

Once upon a time we burned bright
Now all we ever seem to do is fight
On and on, and on and on and on
Once upon a time on the same side
Once upon a time on the same side in the same game
Now why d’you have to go
Have to go and throw water on my flame?
I could have been a princess, you’d be a king
Could have had a castle and worn a ring

I could have been a princess, you’d be a king
Could have had a castle and worn a ring
But no o o o oh you let me go o o o oh
You stole my star
La, lalala lalalala, lalalalalalala, lalalalalalala,
You stole my star
La, lalala lalalala

'Cos you really hurt me, no you really hurt me
'Cos you really hurt me, no you really hurt me
'Cos you really hurt me, oh-oh you really hurt me
'Cos you really hurt me, oh-oh you really hurt me

-----------------------

UP IN FLAMES

So it’s over
This time I know it’s gone
Saltwater
Tasted it too long

I only know I’m wrong
Now I know it’s gone

Up in flames
Up in flames
Up in flames
We have slowly gone

So it’s over
This time you’re flying on
This time I know no song
Can stop its lonely burn
Can stop it slowly going

Up in flames
Up in flames
Up in flames

We have slowly gone

Up in flames
Up in flames
Up in flames

We have slowly gone
We have slowly gone

Can’t we pour some water on?

-----------------------

DON’T LET IT BREAK YOUR HEART

And if I lost the map
If I lost it all
Or fell into the trap
Then she’d call
‘When you’re tired of racing
And you find you never left the start
Come on baby
Don’t let it break your heart’

Though heavily we bled
Still on we crawl
Try to catch a cannonball
And a slowly burning tide
Through my veins is flowing
From my shipwreck I heard her call

She said ‘When you’re tired of aiming your arrows
Still you never hit the mark
Even in your rains and shadows
Still we’re never going to part
Come on baby
Don’t let it break your heart
Oh oh oh oh oh
Don’t let it break your heart
Oh oh oh oh oh
Don’t let it break your heart

Don’t let it break your heart’

-----------------------

UP WITH THE BIRDS
 
The birds they sang, break of day
'Start again' I hear them say
It's so hard to just walk away
 
The birds they sang, all a choir
'Start again', a little higher
It’s a spark in a sea of grey
 
The sky is blue, dream that lie 'til it's true
Then taking back the punch I threw
My arms turn wings oh those clumsy things
Send me up to that wonderful world
And then I’m up with the birds
 
Send me up to that wonderful world
And then I’m up with the birds
 
Might have to go where they don’t know my name
Float all over the world just to see her again
But I won’t show or feel any pain
Even though all my armour might rust in the rain
A simple plot, but I know one day
Good things are coming our way
A simple plot, but I know one day
Good things are coming our way
Oh yeah!
