Everglow by Coldplay

What do you think?

According to an article from The Daily Mail, Chris Martin, the singer from Coldplay was being interviewed by British radio host Zane Lowe, where Chris explains the meaning behind the song “Everglow”.

‘I was in the ocean one day with this surfer guy. He was like, “Yo dude, I was doing this thing the other day, man. It gave me this total everglow!” I was like, “What an amazing word!” 

‘Then the song came completely out. To me, it’s about – whether it’s a loved one or a situation or a friend or a relationship that’s finished, or someone’s passed away – I was really thinking about, after you’ve been through the sadness of something, you also get this everglow. That’s what it’s about.’

 

Lyrics

Well, they say people come
They say people go
This particular diamond was extra special
And though you might be gone, and the world may not know
Still I see you, celestial

And I should but I can’t let you go
But when I’m cold, I’m cold
Yeah, when I’m cold
Cold
There’s a light that you give me when I’m in shadow
There’s a feeling within me, an everglow

Like brothers in blood, or sisters who ride

Yeah we swore on that night we’d be friends ’til we die

But the changing of winds, and the way waters flow 
 
 
Life is short as the falling of snow
And I’m gonna miss you, I know
But when I’m cold, cold
In water rolled, salt
And you’re always with me and the way you will show
And you’re with me wherever I go
And you give me this feeling, this everglow
What I wouldn’t give for just a moment to hold
Because, I live for this feeling, this everglow
So if you love someone, you should let them know
Oh, the light that you left me will everglow
