"Everglow" as written by Tor Hermansen, Chris Martin, Guy Berryman, Will Champion, Johnny Buckland and Mikkel Eriksen....
We see people coming
See people go
This particular timing is extra special
I know you might be gone
And the world may not know
Still, I see you celestial

Like a lion you ran
Goddess, he wrote
Like an eagle, you circle
Perfect of all
So how come things move on?
How come cars don’t slow?
When it feels like the end of the world
When I should but I can’t let you go

But when I’m cold, cold
When I’m cold, cold
There’s a light that you give me
When I’m in shadows
There’s a feeling of ever, everglow

We’re brothers in that
The sisters you write
When we stroll on like that
Be friends ‘til we die
With the changing of winds
And the way waters flow
Life is shortest in fall, in the snow
I know I’m going to miss you, I know

But when I’m cold, cold
Yeah, all alone, the sun
And I know that you’re with me
And the way you will show, when you’re with me wherever I go
But you give me this feeling, it’s everglow

What I wouldn't give for this moment to hold
Yeah, I live for this feeling, it’s everglow

So if you love someone, you should let them know
Oh, the light that you left me will everglow

    General CommentIt's about someone who's left your life, but you didn't want them to go. It's simple, but it's heartbreaking, and also hopeful, since though they left, the person left a light in him that will always glow. That light could be reassuring words that person told him or just the memory of them in general. Remembering them will help him in times of pain and darkness, which he's thankful for, but the sense of longing reappears at the end with, "So if you love someone, you should let them know," implying that it's better to cherish someone while they're with you now than to only have their memory to hold. To me, this is a more lighthearted parallel of 'O' from Ghost Stories. Very tugging on the heart.

    General CommentLyrics are wrong. Correct lyrics:

    oh they say people come, say people go
    this particular diamond was extra special
    and though you might be gone, and the world may not know
    still I see you, celestial

    like a lion you ran, a goddess you rolled
    like an eagle you circled, in perfect purple
    so how come things move on, how come cars don’t slow
    when it feels like the end of my world
    when I should but I can’t let you go?

    but when I’m cold, cold
    oh when I’m cold, cold
    there’s a light that you give me when I’m in shadow
    there’s a feeling you give me, an everglow

    like brothers in blood, sisters who ride
    and we swore on that night we’d be friends til we die
    but the changing of winds, and the way waters flow
    life as short as the falling of snow
    and now I’m gonna miss you I know

    but when I’m cold, cold
    in water rolled, salt
    I know that you’re with me and the way you will show
    and you’re with me wherever I go
    and you give me this feeling this everglow

    oh- I I I I
    what I wouldn’t give for just a moment to hold
    yeah I live for this feeling this everglow

    so if you love someone, you should let them know
    oh the light that you left me will everglow
