Funny story about ‘Fix You’…..

Funny story about ‘Fix You’…..
So, Fix You is probably the one song I knew before becoming a fan. Like I knew all the lyrics from when it first came out and everyone sang it and it was big, at least I thought I did.So earlier today, I am listening to music with my sister and Fix You comes on so I sing the bridge “Its History down your face, when you lose someone you can’t replace…” which kinda always made sense to me cause, like, I thought history was like a metaphor, right? So my sister starts laughing uncontrollably and she told me that was the wrong lyrics and we had a heated debate until we actually checked the lyrics.Long story short, I am now $20 poorer.
