    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

    This is what I think I heard, still not sure about some of it...

    Well they say people come
    Say people go
    This particular diamond
    Is extra special

    And though you might be gone
    And the world may not know
    Still I see you
    Celestial

    Like a lion you ran
    Goddess you roll
    Like an eagle you circle
    And perfect of all

    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, and I'm cold, cold
    There’s a lot that you give me
    In your loving shadow
    There’s a feeling within me: everglow

    But my brothers in blood
    Sisters you ride
    And we swore that night we’d
    Be friends till we die

    But the changing of winds
    And the way waters flow
    Life is short as the falling of snow
    And now I’m gonna miss you I know

    But when I'm cold
    Cold, you are, the sun
    And I know that you’re with me
    In a way that won’t show
    And you’re with me wherever I go
    But you give me this feeling, this everglow

    [solo]

    Yeah what I wouldn't give for just a moment alone
    Yeah I live for this feeling, this everglow

    So if you love someone
    You should let them know
    The light that you left me will everglow

    I also hear I'm cold rather then I call :) Pretty sure there's an "m" sound.

    ^ cool, will wait for more opinions, and re-listen with headphones a bit later and make the changes if needed

    I haven't heard the song, but I'm really liking these lyrics. Reminds me a bit of X&Y-era lyrics :wacky:

    I only listened to it twice, but I heard "cold". Call makes more sense, though...

    I definitely hear cold in there. Well, actually I can't hear if it's cold or call but I clearly hear Chris sing "I'm" and "I'm call" doesn't make sense at all

    Edit: Also, I hear celestial instead of extra special in the first verse

    This song is in C#m key, if you want to play guitar chords or any instrument.

    Just listened. It sound a bit like coldplay indeed, but it has a strong generic feeling in it. Its an ok song, good, but just that, nothing speeecial. I believe that the singles will sound more generic on this album but the others will sound a lot more unique

    it's actually, "but when I’m cold, cold/in water rolled, salt"
