"O" as written by Christopher Anthony John Martin, Guy Rupert Berryman, Jonathan Mark Buckland and William Champion....
A flock of birds
Hovering above
Just a flock of birds
That's how you think of love

And I always
Look up to the sky
Pray before the dawn
'Cause they fly always
Sometimes they arrive
Sometimes they are gone
They fly on

A flock of birds
Hovering above
Into smoke I'm turned
And rise following them up

Still I always
Look up to the sky
Pray before the dawn
'Cause they fly away
One minute they arrive,
Next you know they're gone
They fly on
Fly on

So fly on
Ride through
Maybe one day I'll fly next to you

They fly on
Ride through
Maybe one day I come fly with you
Fly on
Fly on
Fly on

    My InterpretationThis song has only recently came into my listening radar, and I wish I had known this sooner.

    I do agree that this song is about parting with the inevitable part of life, that is death, and taking time to deal with the constant in our lives, that is change. However, it's not always the physical part of death that we're struggling with, as it is also about the struggle to embracing change, which I feel are what the 'flock of birds' referred to. Remember the saying 'birds of a feather flock together'? It's about meeting someone halfway through the change, and as fate would allow, through love, we shall meet again, and fly together towards the sunset. :) It might sound sad at first, but if you feel deeply, you will hear the glint of hope and optimism that resonates in you. This is what love is.

    The actual 'O' song that follows thereafter completes this song, a beautiful closure. I've read somewhere that Chris Martin's daughter's voice was in it!
