LP4 Tracklisting

Lukas is a song written during sessions for Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends, but did not make the final cut. The song appears on the handwritten list of songs in the tripleM interview and is also believed to be one of the blacked-out entries in Prospekt's journal entry on September 5th.

The song remains unreleased by Coldplay, but was given by the band to Natalie Imbruglia, along with four other co-written songs. Imbruglia's cover of Lukas is the second track on her 2009 album, Come to Life.

Lyrics

They call him Lukas
Climbing the stairs to talk to you
Coming to tell his story
Every single one of which is true

Hello Lukas
I'm pleased to meet you, now how you do?

So they go driving
Up to the river like lovers do
You smell like the summer
Maybe the summer just smells of you
One day I'm gonna be a famous writer
Some look like love in the afternoon
It was all Lukas could say
Maybe one day we could run away
Run away

Ooh ooh ooh ooh
I thought you'd never ask
Ooh ooh oooh-ooh

Ooh ooh ooh ooh
I thought you'd never ask
Ooh ooh oooh

Now here comes Lukas
He'd done everything you wanted to
It was twenty years later
Come back to do what he promised to
He'd come back to make her happy
But these things don't always wait for you
And poor Lukas was late
For when he got back she've been married a day
Gone away

Ooh ooh ooh ooh
I thought you'd never ask
Ooh ooh oooh-ooh

Ooh ooh ooh ooh
I thought you'd never ask
Ooh ooh oooh

And Lukas would say
For a million lonely people
Another lonely day
For a million hearts that open
A million break
And the world's just a fallen angel
In my wake
High up in heaven you can hear them say
Looking for Lukas 
But Lukas was always running away

Ooh ooh ooh ooh,
Ooh ooh oooh-ooh,
Ooh ooh ooh ooh,
Ooh ooh oooh-ooh
