Magic
by Coldplay
The second track on Coldplay’s sixth studio album Ghost Stories, “Magic”, introduces us to the narrator’s former relationship with a woman he loved in a magical way. Through clever references to the art of stage magic, he describes a very special bond that once existed between the two.

The song is not an affirmation of a relationship, it is a song about honoring yourself when a relationship ends. Although his lover has broken him in two by ending the relationship, he celebrates the magic of his capacity to unconditionally love another, even if they don’t reciprocate — his precious jewel.

“Magic” was the lead single from Coldplay’s Ghost Stories and was released on March 3, 2014.

Coldplay's official music video for "Magic" finds frontman Chris Martin in a love triangle… with Chris Martin as his bitter romantic rival. The imaginative clip comes courtesy of director Jonas Åkerlund, and co-stars "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" actress Ziyi Zhang as the object of their mutual affection.

The unassuming alternative single is paired with a black-and-white video with an old-timey introduction and cue cards for dialogue; the plot is also a throwback, with a hero, a damsel in distress and a mustachioed villain standing in the way of true love. With the help of the power of levitation, Good Chris (Christophe) defeats Dastardly Chris (Claude), and the magician's assistant becomes intertwined with the "beautiful young magicienne."
