Coldplay - Champion Of The World Lyrics

Gi nwa nke chukwu, gini ka ina ekwu
N'ihi ihe nile
Nke chukwu mere

I tried my best to be just like
The other boys in school
I tried my best to get it right
And died at every duel
This mountainside is suicide
This dream will never work
Still the sign upon my headstone, write
"A champion of the world"

Oh oh-oh
Oh oh-oh-oh oh oh

I tried my best to stay alight
Fly like a firework
I tried my best at taking flight
But my rocketship reversed
Oh, referee, don't stop the fight
Everyone can see I'm hurt
But I'll stand before conquistadors
Till I'm champion of the world

(When I sail) And when I sail
I'm sailing west
(Know I might fail) Knowing I might fail
But, still I'm hoping for the best
(In my dreams) And in my dreams
Onto my chest
She'll pin the colours and say
"I wandered the whole wide world but
Baby, you're the best"

Lo lo-lo-lo lo oh
Lo lo-lo-lo lo

So I'm flying on my bicycle
Heading upwards from the Earth
I am jumping with no parachute
Out into the universe
I have E.T. on my bicycle
Because giving up won't work
Now I'm riding on my rocketship
And I'm champion of the world

Coldplay Champion Of The World Comments
  1. Aidan Kraus

    The most underrated song on the album. Absolutely love this 🤤

  2. PheBus Ziellonde

    This is one of the most underrated song ever. The music, the lyrics, the emotions they expressed deserves way more credit ;__;

  3. Blanca Hernandez

    Que bella canción

  4. Zenoks6

    ''She'll pin the colours and say'', always that soul touch from Coldplay in almost each song. My favorite one for sure

  5. Stephanie K

    I have E.T. on my bicycle. 🎶 ✨💛

  6. Heather Mc Erlean

    My hubby and I have listened to your music for years. I was there with you from the beginning. I just found this album. I have been playing the whole thing tonight so both hubby and I can listen to it. You've always moved us, touched us, made us laugh, sing, and even cry. We have gotten up and danced to your music, but this album is a new level to us. We love it. It's not just the music, but it's the lyrics, it's the human interests, it's the multiculturalism, and it's the heartfelt messages that are in these songs. We love all of this so far. I cannot say I love it more than my favorites I've had for years, but it's my first time listening. I can say there's going to be a few that become favorites ... close to already <3 Great stuff!

  7. Aditya Singh

  43. Edward Lewis Paxton

    Is there a deadline for them saints to come out and if so when is it?'

    Edward Lewis Paxton

    Yeah they're probably a bunch of pedos too?'

    Edward Lewis Paxton

    I know they'd probably spend billions on how to remove them just at the think tank stage!

  44. Edward Lewis Paxton

    I don't suppose Ariana told you she raped me when I was chloroformed did she?'

  45. Edward Lewis Paxton

    Well if they weren't all spies I might just go for a kiss but I don't know if I want to fly to the moon though cuz they've probably hidden a robot under the dust or summit!?

  46. Edward Lewis Paxton

    Might see if they'll put a bullet in my head sometime protesting that it's not me who's a machine nor the one who you should rage against but that may just be reference to Nazis!?

  47. Edward Lewis Paxton

    They also called me Jimmy hill for a bit as well!'

  48. Edward Lewis Paxton

    Think I'm a ghost still?'

  49. Edward Lewis Paxton

    I am champion of the world horror show covered up by a bunch of hideous cunts!.
