Coldplay – A L I E N S (Official Lyric Video)

“All the E.T.’s are phoning home”…watch the pulsating animated lyric video for Coldplay’s latest single ‘ALIENS’, taken from the upcoming Kaleidoscope EP. The single will be available on July 14 (digital) / August 4 (CD & vinyl).

Rolling Stone say, “The plight of aliens (both in the sci-fi as well as the earthly foreigner sense) and the meaning of home are explored in Coldplay’s new animated lyric video for their song “Aliens.” Proceeds from the tune will benefit Migrant Offshore Aid Station (MOAS), which is an international NGO that rescues migrants and refugees distressed at sea in the Mediterranean.”

Aliens Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
We were just about to lose our home
Diamonds ate the radio
Moving in the dead of night
We took photographs just some just so
History has some to know
We were moving at the speed of flight

[Pre-Chorus]
Kids cry
If you want to
That’s alright
If you want to
Hold me
Hold me tight

[Chorus]
Just an alien

[Verse 2]
We were hovering without a home
Millions are UFO
Hovering in hope some scope tonight
Sees the light and says

[Pre-Chorus]
Fly if you want to
That’s alright
But if you want to
Call me
Call this line

[Chorus]
Just an alien
Just an alien
Oh, we just want to get home again

[Bridge]
Tell your leader
Sir or ma’am
We come in peace
We mean no harm
Somewhere out there
In the unknown
All the E.T.’s are phoning home
Watching my life
On the skyline
Crossing your eyes
For a lifetime

[Chorus]
Just an alien
Moving target
Target movement
A patch, a corner
Of the spacetime
Just an alien
Turning toward it
Turning pages
Over Asia
Crossing ages
Just an alien
Oh, we just want to get home again.
