I know it means a lot to Chris. Represents his insecurities and the difficulty of accepting the realities of his relationship with his wife. But also love, and other themes of life.

You are watching: Fly on coldplay lyrics

I have listened to it at least 1000 times. (Most likely underestimating) and I still find deeper meanings between the lyrics.

Overall it’s an enjoyable song without even listening that closely to the lyrics.

Best part is the silence on the extended version before the message of not giving up. And believing in love. You almost forget you listening and then it starts it’s so nice.

❤️❤️❤️ Love you coldplay fam

O (Fly On), it really is painful and very sad, but at the same time beautiful, the outro is magical

A Rush of Blood to the Head

The song definitely means a lot to me... (not trying to brag here, I promise!) but I played it with Chris on stage and that song will forever hold an even deeper meaning in my heart. The vulnerability in that song is something else... but the meaning of hope in it is what I have come to appreciate more about it. I love it so much and I’m so glad other fans love it too.

Bruh is ur play on YouTube. I’d love to see that. Would be insane. Also nerve recking to have done it ey. Did you get to see Chris afterwards. Or hug him. ❤️❤️

Such a special moment. I find this song meaning has constantly evolved for me.

The second verse is absolutely heartbreaking. “One minute you arrive, next you know they’re gone” is probably my favourite line Chris has delivered in terms of singing. I love the rhythm there. This is one of my top 5 songs of all time.

It reminds me of a time where a lot of my friends were leaving town and it was hard to let what we have go. I want them to fly on but it was hard to see them leave

Its Chris' favourite song to play atm!

The whole of GS is my go-to sad album, and Fly On is definitely my favourite on GS and one of my favourite songs period. Works so amazingly as the album closer aswell. Just the perfect song, perfectly placed on the most beautiful album.
