Song of the Week: “Fix You” by Coldplay

“Fix You” is a lot of things.  It’s a beautiful song, it’s a moving song, and it’s also a very tricky song.  At first glance, there are some problems with the lyrics.  After all, no matter how hard we try or how well-meaning we are, we can’t fix each other.  We can support each other, we can be there for each other, but only God can repair the flaw all of our souls.  Nevertheless, at its core, “Fix You” has a positive message, one that is uplifting and well put.  When everything goes wrong, when your life falls apart, the value of a friend, someone who will give of themselves until they have nothing left to lift you back up to your feet, is immeasurable.  It’s that kind of selfless love that ultimately shines through in the music and lyrics of “Fix You”, a song that exudes so much triumphant, hopeful energy that you can’t help but smile and sing along.  Video and lyrics after the page break.
