Drink from me, drink from me (oh-ah-oh-ah)
Then we'll shoot across the (symphony)
Then we'll shoot across the sky
Drink from me, drink from me (oh-ah-oh-ah)
Then we'll shoot across the (oh-ah-oh-ah)
Symphony
(So high, so high)
Then we'll shoot across the sky

Oh, angels sent from up above
You know you make my world light up
When I was down, when I was hurt
You came to lift me up
Life is a drink, and love's a drug
Oh now I think I must be miles up
When I was hurt, withered, dried up
You came to rain a flood

So drink from me, drink from me
When I was so thirsty
We're on a symphony
Now I just can't get enough
Put your wings on me, wings on me
When I was so heavy
We're on a symphony
When I'm lower, lower, lower, low
Ah-oh-ah-oh-ah
Got me feeling drunk and high
So high, so high
Oh-ah-oh-ah-oh-ah
I'm feeling drunk and high
So high, so high
(Woo)
(Woo-ooo-ooo-woo)

Oh, angels sent from up above
I feel it coursing through my blood
Life is a drink, your love's about
To make the stars come out

Put your wings on me, wings on me
When I was so heavy
We're on a symphony
When I'm lower, lower, lower, low

Ah-oh-ah-oh-ah
Got me feeling drunk and high
So high, so high
Oh-ah-oh-ah-oh-ah
I'm feeling drunk and high
So high, so high

Ah-oh-ah-oh-ah
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
So high, so high
Ah-oh-ah-oh-ah
I'm feeling drunk and high
So high, so high

Then we'll shoot across the sky
Then we'll shoot across the
Then we'll shoot across the sky
Then we'll shoot across the (then we'll shoot)
Then we'll shoot across the sky
Then we'll shoot across the
Then we'll shoot across the sky
Then we'll shoot across the














FROM UP ABOVE= From heaven.

LIGHT UP= Illuminate.

I WAS DOWN= I was feeling sad, depressed.

LIFT ME UP= Help me stand up.

MILES UP= Very very high up. If being down is feeling depressed, being high is feeling euphoric.

WITHERED= Whe a plant or flower witheres, it becomes dry or limp because it doesn't have enough water or because it's dying for some other reason.

FLOOD= /flʌd/ When water covers a place (because it rained too much or because a river overflowed, or because you left your bath tap open, etc.). "To rain a flood" means to rain very very much (so it can flood everything).

WINGS= The "arms" a bird uses to fly.

COURSING= Moving quickly, flowing.

BLOOD= /blʌd/ The rain liquid that flows through your veins inside your body and keep you alive.

YOUR LOVE'S ABOUT TO MAKE...= Your love is going to make... very very soon. (we use TO BE ABOUT... to talk about a very near future, something that is going to happen any moment now).

 

Chris Martin originally wanted this to be a party jam, but his bandmates didn't think that would go down well with their fan base. He told The Wall Street Journal: "The original kernel was that I was listening to Flo Rida or something, and I thought, it's such a shame that Coldplay could never have one of those late-night club songs, like 'Turn Down For What.' What would we call it if we had one? I thought I'd like to have a song called 'Drinks on Me' where you sit on the side of a club and buy everyone drinks because you're so ****ng cool. I was chuckling about that, when this melody came - 'drinks on me, drinks on me' - then the rest of the song came out."

"I presented it to the rest of the band and they said, "We love this song, but there's no way you can sing 'drinks on me.'" So that changed into 'drink from me' and the idea of having an angelic person in your life. Then that turned into asking Beyoncé to sing on it."
