Coldplay – Everglow (Live at Belasco Theater)

Coldplay’s song EVERGLOW was inspired by Chris Martin’s love for GWYNETH PALTROW!!!

Listen to Coldplay’s new song with Gwyneth Paltrow, ‘Everglow’

Gwynnie and Chris, in better times.

So we were confused when Beats 1 host Zane Lowe premiered Everglow, Coldplay’s song with Gwynne’s vocals, last week.

Because while the song’s lyrics certainly seem inspired by Martin and Paltrow’s relationship…

But when I’m cold, cold
You alone are the sun
And I know that you’re with me, in a way it’ll show
And you’re with me wherever I go
But you give me this feeling, this everglow

…the actual song is mighty light on Gwyneth, save for one shadowy vocal sample. A Martin/Paltrow duet this most certainly isn’t.


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

A Head Full of Dreams track listing

Everglow” is a song by English rock band Coldplay. It was released on 26 November 2015 as promotional single from their upcoming seventh studio album, A Head Full of Dreams.[1] The song features uncredited guest vocals by Gwyneth Paltrow, the ex-wife of Chris Martin.[2]


Martin came up with the idea for the title of the song from a slang word he heard from a surfer. In an interview with Zane Lowe, he explained the origin of the phrase: “I was in the ocean one day with this surfer guy, who spoke just like you’d imagine a surfer guy to speak … This guy spoke like Sean Penn‘s character from Fast Times at Ridgemont High. He was like, ‘Yo dude, I was doing this thing the other day man, it gave me this total everglow!'”.[3]


“Everglow” revolves around a heartfelt piano riff. The track is written in the key of C-sharp minor at 73 BPM and a chord progression that alternates between C#m-A-E-G#m7 and C#m-A-E-B. [4]
