The Hardest Part

6 09 2012

Really digging this song at the moment.  I realized that all of Coldplay’s songs that have a line or two about heartbreak (some more subtle than others), and that’s why I really like some of their songs.  I wouldn’t call myself a fan, but every once in a while, I’ll have a Coldplay craving and there’s that one perfect song that just fits my mood.

One of my favourite parts in “The Hardest Part” is the bridge before the end, the part that goes like this:

Everything I know is wrong
Everything I do just comes undone
And everything is torn apart
Oh and it’s the hardest part

I’ll let you think about why that is.

Note: the video is 8 minutes long but the actual song is about 4 and a half minutes.  I suppose that silence is there for you to think about what you just heard and to digest it thoughtfully, which of course, you’d be doing anyway, right?
