In this case I can’t decide which is better, the actual song or the video. With more on-line analysis available than the King James version of the Bible the video is a work of art in itself. Basically the story line veiled in biblical overtones with interesting allusions to magic depicts the struggle between the forces of good and evil. The damsel in distress (the Eve type) is rescued by the unlikely hero (billed as the savior-and more than coincidentally is portrayed by Chris Martin) from the clutches of her sinister and nasty villain of a husband (the serpent type). Now who doesn’t love a good bible story with a happy ending?
 

And if you were to ask me
After all that we’ve been through
Still believe in magic
Oh yes I do

 

 

Magic

Written by Will Champion, Guy Berryman, Chris Martin, Jonny Buckland
 

Call it magic
Call it true
Call it magic
When I’m with you
And I just got broken
Broken into two
Still I call it magic
When I’m next to you

And I don’t, and I don’t and I don’t, and I don’t
No, I don’t,
It’s true
I don’t, no, I don’t, no, I don’t, no, I don’t want anybody else but you
I don’t, no, I don’t, no, I don’t, no, I don’t
No, I don’t,
It’s true
I don’t, no, I don’t, no, I don’t, no, I don’t want anybody else but you

Ooooh ooh ooh

Call it magic
Cut me into two
And with all your magic
I disappear from view
And I can’t get over
Can’t get over you
Still I call it magic
You’re such a precious jewel

And I don’t, and I don’t and I don’t, and I don’t
No, I don’t,
It’s true
I don’t, no, I don’t, no, I don’t, no, I don’t want anybody else but you
I don’t, no, I don’t, no, I don’t, no, I don’t
No, I don’t,
It’s true
I don’t, no, I don’t, no, I don’t, no, I don’t want anybody else but you

Wanna fall
I fall so far
I wanna fall
I fall so hard
And I call it magic
And I call it true
I call it magic

Ooooh ooh ooh
Ooooh ooh ooh
Ooooh ooh ooh
Ooooh ooh ooh

And if you were to ask me
After all that we’ve been through
Still believe in magic
Oh yes I do
Oh yes I do
Yes I do
Oh yes I do
Of course I do
