I decided to sing “Fix You” by Coldplay for my final post here at the Wave. ‘Fix You’ has been one of my favorite songs for years now, so I just had to cover it. What I love about this song is the nice acoustic sound it has. Instantly, I fell in love with the rhythm guitar in the background and learned the chords right away. However, what I like most about ‘Fix You’ are the lyrics. These words were written by the lead singer, Chris Martin of Coldplay to help comfort his wife, Gweneth Paltrow after her father had died. I think they serve as a source of comfort not only for her, but for all of us. They remind us that despite all the pain that is present in our lives and the mistakes we’ve made, we can move on and accept them because we will always have another opportunity to do even greater things and succeed. Hope you enjoy!
