"Another's Arms" as written by Christopher Anthony John Martin, Guy Rupert Berryman, Jonathan Mark Buckland and William Champion....
Late night watching TV
Used to be you here beside me
Used to be your arms around me
Your body on my body

When the world means nothing to me
Another's arms, another's arms
When the pain just rips right through me
Another's arms, another's arms

Late night watching TV
Used to be you here beside me
Is there someone there to reach me?
Or someone there to find me

When the pain just rips right through me
Another's arms, another's arms
And this's just torture to me
Another's arms, another's arms

Pull yourself into me
Another's arms, another's arms
Love means nothing to me
Another's arms, another's arms

Got to pull you close into me
Another's arms, another's arms
Pull yourself right through me
Another's arms, another's arms

Late night watching TV
Wish that you were here beside me
Wish that your arms were around me
Your body on my body

    My InterpretationThis album is indeed a whole story. Following the story, he is facing a break up. "the world means nothing to me" "the pain just rips right through me". But she's already with another man and he's only wishing to go back with her. "that's just torture to me. Another's arms, another's arms" "Wish that you were here beside me"

    My InterpretationThis is such a great song. It's the best one off of Ghost Stories IMHO. To me, this song has several meanings, but first and foremost I think it refers to Gwyneth Paltrow's adulterous run-ins with another lover. Obviously, Chris is hurt that she is in "another's arms". But the meaning of the song goes beyond this. Not only does it hurt to think about her adulterous behavior, but being with Paltrow isn't the same anymore. Being in "another's arms" is now painful because the relationship is damaged (and Chris is damaged). There is a third meaning, which is Chris himself being in another lover's arms (he himself being an adulterer, because he wants to escape his damaged relationship with Paltrow). But no matter who he's with, it's not the same, and it hurts to be in "another's arms" because he still loves Gwyneth. I imagine either one or all of these scenarios is true, and they inspired Chris to write the song.
