I love Coldplay and really like their newest song Violet Hill. After reading through the lyrics, I think the song is about a soldier going off to war and questioning why his loved one let him go if they really loved him. Almost like the soldier was testing the loved one and was hoping they would have stopped him from going or at least begged him to stay. I may be way off but that’s what I think, what do you?

Violet Hill Lyrics

Was a long and dark December
From the rooftops I remember
There was snow, white snow

Clearly I remember
From the windows they were watching
While we froze down below

When the future’s architectured
By a carnival of idiots on show
You’d better lie low

If you love me
Won’t you let me know?

Was a long and dark December
When the banks became cathedrals
And the fog
Became God

Priests clutched onto bibles
Hollowed out to fit their rifles
And the cross was held aloft

Bury me in honor
When I’m dead and hit the ground
My Love is opposed when unfold

If you love me
Won’t you let me know?

I don’t want to be a soldier
With the captain of some sinking ship
With snow, far below

If you love me
Why’d you let me go?

I took my love down to Violet Hill
There we sat in snow
All that time she was silent still

So if you love me
Won’t you let me know?

If you love me,
Won’t you let me know?
