oh they say people come, 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

like a lion you ran, a goddess you rolled
like an eagle you circled, in perfect purple
so how come things move on, how come cars don’t slow
when it feels like the end of my world
when I should but I can’t let you go?

but when I’m cold, cold
oh when I’m cold, cold
there’s a light that you give me when I’m in shadow
there’s a feeling you give me, an everglow

like brothers in blood, sisters who ride
and we swore on that night we’d be friends til we die
but the changing of winds, and the way waters flow
life as short as the falling of snow
and now I’m gonna miss you I know

but when I’m cold, cold
in water rolled, salt
I know that you’re with me and the way you will show
and you’re with me wherever I go
and you give me this feeling this everglow

oh- I I I I
what I wouldn’t give for just a moment to hold
yeah 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

This is what I think I heard, still not sure about some of it...

Well they say people come
Say people go
This particular diamond
Is extra special

And though you might be gone
And the world may not know
Still I see you
Celestial

Like a lion you ran
Goddess you roll
Like an eagle you circle
And perfect of all

So how come things move on?
How come cars don't slow?
When it feels like the end of my world
When I should but I can’t let you go

But when I'm cold
Cold, and I'm cold, cold
There’s a lot that you give me
In your loving shadow
There’s a feeling within me: everglow

But my brothers in blood
Sisters you ride
And we swore that night we’d
Be friends till we die

But the changing of winds
And the way waters flow
Life is short as the falling of snow
And now I’m gonna miss you I know

But when I'm cold
Cold, you are, the sun
And I know that you’re with me
In a way that won’t show
And you’re with me wherever I go
But you give me this feeling, this everglow

[solo]

Yeah what I wouldn't give for just a moment alone
Yeah I live for this feeling, this everglow

So if you love someone
You should let them know
The light that you left me will everglow

I also hear I'm cold rather then I call :) Pretty sure there's an "m" sound.

^ cool, will wait for more opinions, and re-listen with headphones a bit later and make the changes if needed

I haven't heard the song, but I'm really liking these lyrics. Reminds me a bit of X&Y-era lyrics :wacky:

I'm trying not to listen to it until the album drops... I'm liking the lyrics so far!

I definitely hear cold in there. Well, actually I can't hear if it's cold or call but I clearly hear Chris sing "I'm" and "I'm call" doesn't make sense at all

Edit: Also, I hear celestial instead of extra special in the first verse

Nice lyrics!!

So if you love someone
You should let them know

This song is in C#m key, if you want to play guitar chords or any instrument.

Just listened. It sound a bit like coldplay indeed, but it has a strong generic feeling in it. Its an ok song, good, but just that, nothing speeecial. I believe that the singles will sound more generic on this album but the others will sound a lot more unique
