Everglow - Lyrics Decryption

Recommended Posts

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

Life is shortest of falling of snow

 

I'd say Life is short as the falling of snow

 

 

Like that you left me, the everglow

 

I'd say 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

Call or cold? :thinking:

 

I only listened to it twice, but I heard "cold". Call makes more sense, though...

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

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

it's actually, "but when I’m cold, cold/in water rolled, salt"

Think he refers to being tossed into the cold water (and ocean water is salty, so...)
