“Human Heart” by Coldplay, We are KING, and Jacob Collier should have been used in Netflix’s Bridgerton Season 2 because it perfectly encapsulates Kate Sharma and Anthony Bridgerton’s relationship. It would’ve been especially perfect for their first dance in “Victory” because it captures who they are individually and as a couple. And for those who don’t know, it’s a song Jonathan Bailey and Simone Ashley used while rehearsing.
Coldplay never fails to capture the essence of romance in their music through beautifully relatable lyrics that hit straight to all our bones. And with “Human Heart” in particular, it captures much of the toxicity in the world—the things we’re taught that mess with us more often than not.
Okay but hear us out when it comes to the lyrics and the point we’re trying to make.
Boys, Boys Don’t Cry
Boys Keep It All Inside
I Try To Hide It Underneath
Still, My Heart Starts To Beat
Girls Can Make-Believe
Girls Wear It On Their Sleeve
Thought I Could Pretend For Trying Sake
Still, My Heart Had To Break
Are we wrong!? Is this not Kate and Anthony’s song? Do the lyrics not get to the heart of who they are beautifully? Coldplay wrote “Human Heart” for Kate and Anthony, but they didn’t know it at the time. I wish you didn’t run away. But in all seriousness, even if you don’t agree with the comparisons we are making here, “Human Heart” by Coldplay, We are KING, and Jacob Collier is one of the most beautiful songs ever written, and it deserves your unyielding adoration.
Heartbreak proves what we’ve endured, and that’s the case with most love stories—hearts break before they heal, and there’s great beauty in that.
