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.
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
