It’s not just a song. It’s about you.
It has been 2 years I guess since I had found this song. Thanks to Coldplay for this kind of masterpiece which can’t be found everywhere. Anywhere. This song is always my lifetime favorite song that I’ll always listen in every trip to some places, in every time I write something, in every moment when I have to feel nostalgic and wonderful. And guess, right now I am hearing this song and it flows into my mind. I feel overwhelmed all of sudden.
Some songs are just really fun and joy to listen, some just want you to dance, some are lyrical and touchy and some songs are just remarkable for the way it means to someone. When the first time I listened to Everglow, I fell in love with the dynamic of its music. I googled this song and found that the lyrics were just me. so deep. I don’t know, like just found the pieces of you of that song. I digest every single word and line trying to find and getting onto what Coldplay want the listener to listen.
“Well, they say people come
they 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”
How about that? The first time you read those word, you might think of someone who’s really important to you. Somebody that you want to share everything about this world and beyond. Yeah, believe me, I did that too. Those lines brought me to the reality that people come and go and that’s what people do to you. But you might have someone who you look after and think every second or every breathe that you take. And that person has driven you crazy. You know that she would do what people do to you—come and go—but she is remarkable so if everyone even herself think that she lost her way, you’ll always see her, you’ll always find a way to look after her. Cause she is extra special and you can never lose her even in the dark.
“Like a lion you ran, like Goddess you rolled
Like an eagle you circle, 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”
I think that whoever the person you like will always be the same, doing things like other people do to you. But when there comes to a parting of the person we loved, it’ll never gonna be easy. Even though you know that she never really left you because you have her in your heart but the thing is to not able to see her physically is something that hurt you really bad. But the worst part of being left behind is about the time. It might not hurt so much when you already know that the time of this parting is going to be real. But you might be really so much in pain when she left you while you are going to give the world you have to her. just her. And she left then, you die inside.
“When I’m cold, cold.
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”
That is definitely the feeling that you feel when you met her, you talk to her and you love her. It’s the feeling that so addictive, you want to feel more and more and more and you don’t know how to stop that. You probably have to see what does everglow means. I don’t want to tell you here. I just want you to wonder.
“Like brothers in blood, sisters who ride
We swore on that night we’d be friend till we die
But the changing of wind, and the way waters flow
Life as short as the falling of snow
And now, I’m gonna miss you, I know.”
We don’t have any idea about future even one second ahead of us. like people, I do have a plan for future, for spending my lifetime with someone remarkable. It was really beautiful to fall in love with someone and we do want to have that feeling forever for someone. but there’s nothing eternal. nothing last forever. So, what you have now is just the feeling of missing. empty but grateful that you used to know her. That was just a remarkable moment in your life.
“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”
The feeling that cupid gives to the human being is very fascinating. I mean, when you being in love with someone you’re not just happy. you sort of feel a whole thing in this world very astonishing. and the one you love is the center of that kind of feeling. we had to be grateful that we have felt that kind of feeling. astonishing and wonderful. but we had to be more grateful if that feeling remains in your life, right in your heart. because as I said, people come and go but the feeling of love toward someone you truly will always remain the same, whenever and wherever you are.
The point of what comes up to my mind when I decided to write this was some people are just really important to us. even if they left you or hurt you or did something really bad to you. because they give something that you never find it anywhere. but these people are just truly remarkable for you. so you never want them being or feeling bad about this world and something. They are really remarkable, so you can’t forget them and the feeling when you first met them will still remain the same. no matter what.
“So if you love someone, you should let them know
oh the light that you left me will everglow”
