The song debuted at number 70 on the UK Singles Chart, number 74 in Ireland and number 52 in Switzerland.

CompositionEdit

Lasting for three minutes and 54 seconds, "Another's Arms" features an arrangement of guitars, strings, "whooshing keys", "stuttering drums", a "female specter" that "croons in and out of focus", and Chris Martin's lead vocals. The song contains a vocal sample from "Silver Chord" by Jane Weaver.

ReceptionEdit

Billboard writer Jason Lipshutz called "Another's Arms" "a songwriting gem", although he found the arrangement "flat".Josh Modell of The A.V. Club felt that it was "undercooked", while Consequence of Sound's Josh Terry said that the song was the "most well-crafted offering" of Ghost Stories.

LyricsEdit

Late night watching TV
Used to be you here beside me
Used to be your arms around me
Your body on my body

When the world means nothing to me
Another's arms
Another's arms
When the pain just rips right through me
Another's arms
Another's arms

Late night watching TV
Used to be you here beside me
Is there someone there to reach me?
Or someone there to find me?

When the pain just rips right through me
Another's arms
Another's arms
And that's just torture to me
Another's arms
Another's arms

Pull yourself into me
Another's arms
Another's arms
When the world means nothing to me
Another's arms
Another's arms

Got to pull you close into me
Another's arms
Another's arms
Pull yourself right through me
Another's arms
Another's arms

Late night watching TV
Wish that you were here beside me
Wish that your arms were around me
Your body on my body
