"Always in My Head" "Magic"

"Always in My Head" is a song by Coldplay. It was written by all the members of the band and appears as the opening track from their sixth studio album, Ghost Stories (2014). Although it was never released as a single, the song has charted in the UK and in France.


"Always in My Head" begins with an ambient piece including an angel choir that reappears in the album's outro, "O". Like the rest of Ghost Stories, the song's lyrics deal with a troubled relationship. Additional vocals from Martin's daughter, Apple, is featured on the song.


I think of you, I haven't slept
I think I do but I don't forget
My body moves, goes where I will
But though I try my heart stays still
It never moves, just won't be led
And so my mouth waters to be fed

And you're always in my head
You're always in my head
This I guess is to tell you
You're chosen out from the rest
