Up&Up

「希望に溢れて、世界に対して楽観的で、この15年間に僕達に起こったこと全てを理解するような曲が作りたかった」by クリス。

これまでの最終章である7thアルバムで、1stアルバムと同じメッセージのエンディングを迎えた。(1stアルバム最後の曲はEverything's Not Lost)

ギターソロでノエル・ギャラガーが参加。

コーラスには、メンバーの子供達、ビヨンセ、メリー・クレイトン、ブライアン・イーノ等、バンドの家族や友人が多数参加しています。

クリスの息子モーゼスはタンバリンも担当。


歌詞はジョン・スタインベックの『怒りの葡萄』に影響を受けている。
歌詞和訳は ⇒ こちら

『A Head Full Of Dreams』に影響を与えたとクリスが語っていた本は『怒りの葡萄』の他に『ハーフ・ザ・スカイ』『夜と霧』等があります。

どれも絶句してしまう程悲惨な状況が書かれた本ですが、それを受け入れて、なんとかして乗り越えていく人間の力強さに溢れています。

fixing up a car to drive in it again
searching for the water hoping for the rain
up and up, up and up
down upon the canvas, working meal to meal
waiting for a chance to pick your orange field
up and up, up and up
see a pearl form, a diamond in the rough
see a bird soaring high above the flood
it’s in your blood, it’s in your blood
underneath the storm an umbrella is saying
sitting with the poison takes away the pain
up and up, up and up it’s saying

we’re going to get it get it together right now
going to get it get it together somehow
going to get it get it together and flower
oh oh oh oh oh oh
we’re going to get it get it together I know
going to get it get it together and flow
going to get it get it together and go
up and up and up

lying in the gutter, aiming for the moon
trying to empty out the ocean with a spoon
up and up, up and up
how come people suffer how come people part?
how come people struggle how come people break your heart?
break your heart
yes I want to grow yes I want to feel
yes I want to know show me how to heal it up
heal it up
see the forest there in every seed
angels in the marble waiting to be freed
just need love just need love
when the going is rough saying

we’re going to get it get it together right now
going to get it get it together somehow
going to get it get it together and flower
oh oh oh oh oh oh
we’re going to get it get it together I know
going to get it get it together and flow
going to get it get it together and go
up and up and up

and you can say what is, or fight for it
close your mind or take a risk
you can say it’s mine and clench your fist
or see each sunrise as a gift

we’re going to get it get it together right now
going to get it get it together somehow
going to get it get it together and flower
oh oh oh oh oh oh
we’re going to get it get it together I know
going to get it get it together and flow
going to get it get it together and go
up and up and up

we’re going to get it get it together right now
going to get it get it together somehow
going to get it get it together and flower
oh oh oh oh oh oh
we’re going to get it get it together I know
going to get it get it together and flow
going to get it get it together and go

up and up and up

oh-oh oh, oh-oh oh oh oh oh

fixing up a car to drive in it again
when you’re in pain
when you think you’ve had enough
don’t ever give up
don’t ever give up
