Coldplay: “Houston, you got to keep on keepin’ on”

Awesome, Coldplay. Just awesome.

In yesterdays post, How You Can Help Texas Right Now, I said:

Sometimes even the simplest expression of encouragement resonates and becomes a rallying cry.

Coldplay gave us a rallying cry, indeed! The band had to postpone last Friday night’s concert here in Houston because of Hurricane Harvey, and used their spare time to write a song for us, playing it last night in Miami.  The refrain ends with:

Houston, you got to keep on keeping’ on.

Watch it here:

The Lyrics

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.

 

Awesome, just awesome.
