15 Heartbreaking Lyrics From Coldplay's 'Ghost Stories'

Last month following his "conscious uncoupling" from Gwyneth Paltrow, Chris Martin told BBC, "I don't want to go through life being scared of it, being scared of love, being scared of rejection, being scared of failure." 

It seemed as though Ghost Stories was going to be a concept record about falling in and out of love. Turns out... it is! Here are some of the most heartbreaking lyrics on the album:

"Always In My Head"

I think of you, I haven't slept / I think I do, I don't forget

My body moves / Goes where I will / But though I try my heart stays still / It never moves


I just got broken / Broken into two / Still I call it magic / When I'm next to you

I don't know want anybody else but you / I can't get over you / Still I call it magic

After all that we've been through / I still believe in magic


All I know / Is that I'm lost 

Whenever you go / All I know / Is that I love you so / So much that it hurts

"True Love"

For a second I was in control / I had it once / I lost it all

I wish you could’ve let me know / What was really going on below / I've lost you now / You've let me go

Tell me you love me / If you don't then lie / Lie to me / Call it true love

"Another's Arms"

Late night watching TV / Wish you were here beside me / Wish your arms were around me / Your body on my body


Flocks of birds / Hovering above / Just a flock of birds / Is how you think of love

One minute they arrive / The next they're gone / Fly on

Fly on / Right through / Maybe one day I'll fly next to you

Fly on / Right through / Maybe one day I can fly with you
