Chris Martin On Gwyneth Paltrow In ‘Magic’: He Wrote About Her In Coldplay Song

Chris croons about being “broken in two” by his lady love in the new song, but still calls their strained romance “magic.” Could he be talking about Gwyneth breaking his heart by leaving him? With heart-wrenching lines like “I don’t want anybody else but you” and “I can’t get over you,” Chris certainly sounds like a jilted lover.

We hope he isn’t completely devastated by the split but the lyrics don’t lie. Check out the full lyrics to “Magic” and let us know what you think:

Call it magic
Call it true
Call it magic
When I’m with you
And I just got broken
Broken into two
Still I call it magic
When I’m next to youAnd I don’t, and I don’t and I don’t, and I don’t
No, I don’t,
It’s true
I don’t, no, I don’t, no, I don’t, no, I don’t want anybody else but you
I don’t, no, I don’t, no, I don’t, no, I don’t
No, I don’t,
It’s true
I don’t, no, I don’t no, I don’t, no, I don’t want anybody else but you

Ooooh ooh ooh

Call it magic
Cut me into two
And with all your magic
I disappear from view
And I can’t get over
Can’t get over you
Still I call it magic
It’s such a precious jewel

And I don’t, and I don’t and I don’t, and I don’t
No, I don’t,
It’s true
I don’t, no, I don’t, no, I don’t, no, I don’t want anybody else but you
I don’t, no, I don’t, no, I don’t, no, I don’t
No, I don’t,
It’s true
I don’t, no, I don’t, no, I don’t, no, I don’t want anybody else but you

Wanna fall
I fall so far
I wanna fall
I fall so hard
And I call it magic
And I call it true
I call it magic

Ooooh ooh ooh
Ooooh ooh ooh
Ooooh ooh ooh
Ooooh ooh ooh

And if you were to ask me
After all that we’ve been through
Still believe in magic
Oh yes I do
Oh yes I do
Yes I do
Oh yes I do
Of course I do

Chris Martin & Gwyneth Paltrow Break Up

Chris and Gwyneth announced their split on her website, Goop. The parents of Apple, 9, and Moses, 7, wrote a heartfelt statement explaining their decision to part ways.

Below is the full statement that the couple posted, titled “Conscious Uncoupling”:

It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate. We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate. We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been. We are parents first and foremost, to two incredibly wonderful children and we ask for their and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time. We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and co-parent, we will be able to continue in the same manner.

Love,
Gwyneth & Chris

So HollywoodLifers, do YOU think Chris wrote “Magic” about Gwyneth? Let us know.
