"Magic" as written by Christopher Anthony John Martin, Guy Rupert Berryman, Jonathan Mark Buckland and William Champion....
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

    Song MeaningIt's very simple, it's about a break up:
    "And I just got broken, broken into two"

    and the singer can't get over the other person:
    "And I can't get over, can't get over you"

    and the singer doesn't want anyone else:
    "I don't, no, I don't, no, I don't, no, I don't want anybody else but you"

    and he believes someday they'll be together again:
    "And if you were to ask me after all that we've been through "Still believe in magic?"
    Well yes, I do. Of course I do"

    General CommentIt's obviously about Chris Martin's (lead singer) recent separation with actress Gweneth Paltrow

    My InterpretationIt is about a couple who keep coming together and falling apart. The guy keep swaying from breaking into two to being next to you(her Significant other). And he doesn't understand why this happens, why every time they fight, then why does he still want her only and then why they always get together again and then again fall apart. Hence, he calls this whole sequence of events as magic. With her magic she can make her or break her. It is like he never existed to something like he is her life. And the guy questions sometimes his love, sometimes he thinks maybe because they fight so much, maybe aren't meant for each other, and then when they do get together, he feels she is one he wants. Hence, even though after all that he is been through, he loves her and believes such love can only be magical and hence he believes in magic.

    General CommentI love this song. I was not a fan of midnight, and was extremely disappointed, but magic gave me a lot of faith that the album would actually be quite good. As for the meaning. Its simply taking about how in love he is with this other person, and he's both broken over the fact that its not mutual, but he's also in wonder with the beauty of their relationship and how he feels when he's around her.

    My InterpretationI think this song describes the feeling of falling in love and the moments you share with that person. "Call it magic or call it true"

    General CommentAgree with Sophia, very very obviously about Martin's separation.

    Really beautiful track though, my heart goes out to him because there's obviously still feelings there and so much emotion in this track. The last verse brings tears to my eyes.

    Song MeaningTo me this song is about a relationship and being so in love/infatuated with your significant other. Both of them have this chemistry or "magic" that is unexplainable, and you can't really explain it until you experience it.

    General CommentIts simple, he’s talking about the love he had for a woman after a breakup, it’s heartbreaking and beautiful.

    He calls it as magic, an indescribable phenomena, something that people talk about but never really believe until they’ve witnessed it and it stays with you, this thing you can never really explain, I think its captivating to describe his love in this way, and still he claims even after they’ve broken up he still believes. Its beautiful.
