A Sky Full of Stars
Coldplay Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

'Cause you're a sky, 'cause you're a sky full of stars
I'm gonna give you my heart
'Cause you're a sky, 'cause you're a sky full of stars
'Cause you light up the path

I don't care, go on and tear me apart
I don't care if you do, ooh-ooh-ooh
'Cause in a sky, 'cause in a sky full of stars
I think I saw you

'Cause you're a sky, 'cause you're a sky full of stars
I wanna die in your arms, oh-oh
'Cause you get lighter the more it gets dark
I'm gonna give you my heart, oh

I don't care, go on and tear me apart
I don't care if you do, ooh-ooh-ooh
'Cause in a sky, 'cause in a sky full of stars
I think I see you
I think I see you

'Cause you're a sky, you're a sky full of stars
Such a heavenly view
You're such a heavenly view





Yeah, yeah, yeah, woo

Overall Meaning

The opening lines "Cause you're a sky, 'cause you're a sky full of stars" suggest that the subject of the song is someone who is exceptional and shines brighter than the rest. This person is so special that the singer is willing to open his heart to them "I'm gonna give you my heart". The lyric "I'm gonna give you my heart" demonstrates the level of affection the singer has for this person. It is perhaps suggesting that this person is so unique and vibrant that they are the holder of the singer's heart, therefore, they can hold the key to his happiness.


The line "Cause you get lighter the more it gets dark" hints that the person in the song brings light to the singer's life. The harder things get for the singer or the darker the world seems, the more the person shines. The lyric "I wanna die in your arms" represents the depth of feeling the singer has for this person as he wants to spend his life with them. The last verse suggests that the person is ironically like a star as they are a "heavenly view".

Coldplay en 20 años me enseño qué:
- Las cosas no serían tan fáciles
- Que las estrellas brillan por nosotros
- Que de algún modo todos lo vamos a lograr
- Que nunca nos demos por vencido
- Que podemos usar nuestro poder para hacer un mundo mejor
- Que si fallamos, podemos arreglarlo.
- Que si nunca intentamos nunca lo sabremos
- Que podemos cruzar el cielo entero por alguien
- El verdadero amor también existe.
- Que siempre hay alguien especial en nuestra cabeza
- Que pronto habrá un paraíso
Y tantas cosas infinitas que se reducen a que todos tenemos un "poder superior" (Higher power)
Gracias coldplay, siempre seras mi banda favorita. ❤️✨
