    In an interview with Metro newspaper, Jay-Z called Chris Martin of Coldplay a "modern day Shakespeare." I mean... that's a pretty big statement, but if Jay-Z said it, it must be true. Right? Here are 10 lyrics that prove Jay is always right.

    1. "Square One" - Outro

    Is there anybody out there who is lost and hurt and lonely too?
    Are they bleeding all your colours into one?
    And if you come undone as if you'd been run through
    Some catapult it fired you
    You wonder if your chance will ever come
    Well, if you're stuck in square one

    2. Fix You - The Whole Song

    Lights will guide you home and ignite your bones
    When you try your best but you don't succeed
    When you get what you want, but not what you need

    3. "What If" - 3rd Verse

    Every step that you take
    Could be your biggest mistake
    It could bend or it could break
    But that's the risk that you take

    4. "Death and All His Friends" - Chorus

    No, I don't wanna battle from beginning to end
    I don't want a cycle of recycled revenge
    I don't wanna follow Death and all of his friends

    5. "42" - 1st Verse

    Those who are dead are not dead
    They're just living in my head
    And since I fell for that spell
    I am living there as well

    6. "Paradise" - 1st Verse

    When she was just a girl
    She expected the world
    But it flew away from her reach
    So she ran away in her sleep

    7. "Trouble" - 1st Verse

    Oh no, I see
    A spider web is tangled up with me
    And I lost my head
    And thought of all the stupid things I'd said

    8. "Spies" - 2nd Verse

    I awake to see that no one is free
    We're all fugitives - look at the way we live
    Down here, I cannot sleep from fear, no
    I said which way do I turn?
    Oh I forget everything I learn

    9. "The Scientist" - Chorus

    Nobody said it was easy
    It's such a shame for us to part
    Nobody said it was easy
    No one ever said it would be this hard
    Oh take me back to the start

    10. "Lost!" - 1st Verse

    Just because I'm losing
    Doesn't mean I'm lost
    Doesn't mean I'll stop
    Doesn't mean I'm across

    Just because I'm hurting
    Doesn't mean I'm hurt
    Doesn't mean I didn't get what I deserved
    No better and no worse
