“Christmas Lights” by Coldplay

Good quote in Coldplay’s take on a christmas song/carol.

Related question: Can “nouveau” christmas songs be called carols, or are the “carols” the ones where Bing is singing about the white christmas’ he used to know, or Nat is roasting chestnuts on the open fire?

Related Answer: I don’t really care, but this seems more like a song than a carol. Maybe the answer lies in whether or not people dressed in Olde English garb would sing this at your doorstep and take up your precious time away from whatever else you were doing? Yes, maybe the answer lies there.

Quote from song/carol/musical interpretation of a rhyming lyrical composition titled “Christmas Lights”, by Coldplay:

“A group of candles on air flicker
Oh they flicker and they float
And I’m up here holding on
To all those chandeliers of hope

Like some drunken Elvis singing
I go singing out of tune
Saying how I always loved you darling
And I always will”
