Magic
Coldplay/Musicfire.in Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Call it magic, call it true
I call it magic when I'm with you
And I just got broken, broken into two
Still I call it magic, when I'm next to you

And I don't, and I don't, and I don't, and I don't
No I don't, it's true
I don't, no, I don't, no, I don't, no, I don't
Want anybody else but you

I don't, no, I don't, no, I don't, no, I don't
No I don't, it's true
I don't, no, I don't, no, I don't, no, I don't
Want anybody else but you

Ooh ooh ooh

Call it magic, cut me into two
And with all your magic, I disappear from view
And I can't get over, can't get over you
Still, I call it magic, such a precious truth

And I don't, and I don't, and I don't, and I don't
No I don't, it's true
I don't, no, I don't, no, I don't, no, I don't
Want anybody else but you

I don't, no, I don't, no, I don't, no, I don't
No I don't, it's true
I don't, no, I don't, no, I don't, no, I don't
Want anybody else but you

Wanna fall, I fall so far
I wanna fall, fall so hard
And I call it magic
And I call it true
Call it magic

Ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh

And if you were to ask me
After all that we've been through
Still believe in magic?
Well yes, I do
Oh yes, I do
Oh yes, I do




Oh yes, I do
Of course I do

Overall Meaning

The song "Magic" by Coldplay is an expression of the power of love and its ability to transform a person's life. The singer calls it "magic" when he is with his lover and even though he feels broken, he still calls it magic when he is next to her. The lyrics reflect the idea that love has the power to heal and make a person feel whole again, even when they have been shattered.


The repetition of the lines "I don't want anybody else but you" emphasizes the singer's devotion to his lover and reinforces the idea that they are meant to be together. The chorus, with its upbeat melody and repeated use of the word "magic," creates an optimistic tone that celebrates the transformative power of love.


In the final verse, the singer affirms his belief in magic despite any challenges they may have faced in their relationship. The song is a declaration that, even though love can be complicated and painful, it is ultimately worth it because of the joy and fulfillment it brings to life.

I first heard this song when i was at a very dark and low point in my life. My parents were on the verge of a divorce and were both leaning on me for emotional support, i had become disillusioned with my university studies (and life in general), and I had lost the first love of my life. I felt lost and in a lot of pain, which later led to a depression.

Many people criticized me for listening to this and other Coldplay songs claiming that they were only "furthering my sadness". But this was far from it - Coldplay spoke the pains that i had in my heart that i couldn't find the words to express- they allowed me to voice my vulnerability, my angst, my anxiety, my pain and sadness and get them off my chest and just be...

Coldplay helped show me that i could share the sadness with others so that they would understand and it didn't have to be messy or pitiful, but could be deep, haunting and profound...and maybe, in that way, also encourage others to share the sadness in their hearts, be honest with themselves, get it off their chests and be unshackled.

I started writing poetry and being precise about my feelings through my words.

Coldplay helped me save myself.

Drowning in despair isn't always what kills us - it's being unable to find the words and to share what we're going through and ask for help from those around us.
The inability to say, "Please help me... I'm drowning and I don't know what to do...", is what really kills us.

Oh no, I see
A spider web is tangled up with me
And I lost my head
And thought of all the stupid things I'd said
Oh no, what's this?
A spider web and I'm caught in the middle
So I turned to run
The thought of all the stupid things I've done
And I, I never meant to cause you trouble
And I, I never meant to do you wrong
And I, well if I ever caused you trouble
Oh no, I never meant to do you harm
Oh no, I see
A spider web and it's me in the middle
So I twist and turn
Here am I in my little bubble
Singing out, I never meant to cause you trouble
And I, I never meant to do you wrong
And I, well, if I ever caused you trouble
Oh, no, I never meant to do you harm
They spun a web for me
They spun a web for me
They spun a web for me

October 13th 2009, this song got me out of a very, very dark time of my life, I was about to decide to end everything and that’s that, but had a Parachutes CD in the car playing this soundtrack, when it came to “they spun a web for me”; I put the pills and the whisky down, then, decided to rebuild my life, onwards upwards and outwards. 12 years later I’m an entrepreneur, married with kids, loving life, being free in my mind. I thank Coldplay for saving me. I thank Guy, Jonny, Will and Chris for writing and sharing this masterpiece to the world.
