Coldplay write song for Houston flood victims

Though Coldplay cancelled their show in Houston over Hurricane Harvey last Friday, the city is on their mind.

At a concert in Miami Monday Night, the British Rock Bank performed a song they composed in memory of the flooded Texas City.

“We were supposed to play in Houston on Friday. We were there that morning and we were hopeful it would be okay, but the Hurricane was coming. A lot of people were supposed to come to the concert and we let them down. We are so grateful to people that come to our shows. Cancelling shows is not something we like to do, but we kind of had to. But i hope it is okay with you that we send some of the atmospheric hit tonight over to Texas and over to Houston,” the band’s lead singer Chris Martin told the show.

“Sometimes you might think that as a popular band or whatever, we don’t give a shit about where we are, but we really do, because we understand that we wouldn’t be here without you guys.”

“This is a new song and we’ll never play this again. It’s a one-off and it’s called ‘Houston.’ We gonna sing it in Miami for everybody here, and we are gonna send it over to Texas, ” he added. as they sang.

Last week the band cancelled a show that was scheduled to take place on Friday Night, as Hurricane Harvey approached the city.
“Hi everyone in Houston
We really wanted to play tonight, but sitting here all together watching the news about the storm we feel that we can’t ask anyone to put their safety at risk. So, sadly, we will have to postpone.
We will give details of rescheduling/refunding as soon as we can. We are really sorry for the inconveniences this will cause. Stay safe and see you soon.
Love
Coldplay,” a message on the band’s website reads.

 

Lyrics of Houston #1

“I’m dreamin’ of when I get back to Houston

I’m dreamin’ of that very special place.

I’m dreamin’ of when Houston has no problems

In that city where they send you into space.

I’m dreamin’ of when I get back to Texas

Corpus Christi, Harris County, Galveston.

There’s a harmony that bonds down there in Houston

Oh, Houston, you got to keep on keepin’ on.

From Miami, we are sending love to Houston

We’re praying that you make it through the rain.

I know nothing’s gonna break the will of Houston

Oh, how we can’t wait to go down there again.

I am dreamin’ of when I get back to Texas

Corpus Christi, Harris County, Galveston.

There’s a harmony that bonds down there in Houston

Oh, Houston you got to keep on keepin’ on.

Oh, Houston you got to keep on keepin’ on.

Yea, Houston got to keep on keepin’ on.”
