    Hi everyone,
    Ever since the Ghost Stories track list was released, I was intrigued as to what "O" meant. I apologise if this has been answered by Chris in an interview or if there is another thread about it, but I have a theory as to why it seems so important.
    Chris has the "O" tattoo on his hand, along with the G, A and M tattoos. Could O possibly be the initial of Gwyneth's miscarried child? I could be way off the mark here, but the G M A and O are all symmetrical on his body as if the connection between them all is family, and O does seem to be an extremely prominent part of the whole album and artwork. Even the stage is set up in the shape of an O.

    Am I completely wrong here?

    Chris did mention being in awe of the fact that without his music (Apple) wouldn't exist. I think there's a vital connection to his children on this record—you're definitely right about that. Although the story of their relationship is over, their children will always be a symbol of that love. I think that permanence, that eternal change, is part of "O" and the ending. This beautiful thing happened, and there will be proof of that forever.

    Is 'O' a tattoo? I thought it was drawn on...

    The tattoo has something to do with this book:

    He told fans about it last year or so.

    It wasn't an interview, I said he told some fans about it.

    It's a beautiful song! He did mention in an interview that it is a difficult song to listen to because it's so personal... And the added fact that both Apple & Moses sing on the "secret track" & reprise versions of the song respectively.... It means a lot to him. Very personal album all around.

    The question is, what in the world are Apple and Moses singing in O. Really, it's puzzling me to no end.


    EDIT: I'm sorry I'm just being stupid. It's Supposed to be Apple and her friend Mabel and they are singing 'O, don't ever let go' which is probably the most emotional thing I have ever heard, ever. Like, it touched me so much more once i knew the lyrics.
