Coldplay "Lost!"(Acoustic Version)

I've always been in love with Coldplay, but this one took me to a place that I can't refuse. Off of their latest album Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends, "Lost!" (Acoustic Version) reminds me of Joni Mitchell's classic "River", which Herbie Hancock and Corinne Bailey Rae did a spectacular rendition of on Hancock's River: The Joni Letters album of 2007, taking home a Grammy for "Best Contemporary Jazz Album" and the first Jazz album in 43 years to take home a Grammy for "Best Album of the Year". We debuted "Lost" from Coldplay last week on New Music Wednesday, the winner in the listeners poll! Since many of you enjoyed the track...I thought I'd share the acoustic version with you. It's a song with a meditative aura that takes you to a place of optimistic repent. Take a listen. [audio=1] My reflection of the acoustic version of "Lost", is to keep sight of your ambition; realize there may be rivers we don't know how to cross. If we are able to create a path within the struggles of life, that lead us to live our passion with the ability to focus and grow...the bridges appear. If you grasp onto something too tight you just may polish the shine off; we all get lost every now and then. Paranoia will eat you alive. Don't let the leeches sink into you and suck you down to size. Be fabulous! Being confident in your own skin is a wonderful accomplishment.
