  • A flock of birds
    Hovering above
    Just a flock of birds
    That's how you think of love

    And I always
    Look up to the sky
    Pray before the dawn
    'Cause they fly always
    Sometimes they arrive
    Sometimes they are gone
    They fly on

    A flock of birds
    Hovering above
    Into smoke I'm turned
    And rise following them up

    Still I always
    Look up to the sky
    Pray before the dawn
    'Cause they fly away
    One minute they arrive,
    Next you know they're gone
    They fly on
    Fly on

    So fly on
    Ride through
    Maybe one day I'll fly next to you

    They fly on
    Ride through
    Maybe one day I come fly with you
    Fly on
    Fly on
    Fly on Writer/s: CHRISTOPHER ANTHONY JOHN MARTIN, GUY RUPERT BERRYMAN, JONATHAN MARK BUCKLAND, WILLIAM CHAMPION

  • Susanne Bjerregaard Vrist from DenmarkThe title 'O' is inspired from a childrens book by Shel Silverstein called 'The missing piece meets the big O'. The main message in the book is, "that nobody is our missing piece, we shouldn't have a missing piece. We are a whole and we just need to find the wholeness within" (Chris Martin on O in interview with Beats music).
  • Susanne Bjerregaard Vrist from DenmarkIt isn't actual birds in background. It's Jonny being a bird on his guitar :)
  • Susan Kleinbauer from United States"O" one of my favorite songs by Coldplay, and I adore Coldplay! The words are just beautiful, the implications of the birds in the background... Stunning.
