Coldplay are a British rock band formed in 1996 by lead vocalist and keyboardist Chris Martin and lead guitarist Jonny Buckland at University College London (UCL).[5] After they formed under the name Pectoralz, Guy Berryman joined the group as bassist and they changed their name to Starfish.[6] Will Champion joined as drummer and backing vocalist, completing the lineup. Creative director Phil Harvey is often referred to as the fifth member by the band.[7] The band renamed themselves "Coldplay" in 1998,[8] before recording and releasing three EPs: Safety in 1998 and Brothers & Sisters and The Blue Room in 1999. The Blue Room was their first release on a major label, after signing to Parlophone.[9]

Lyrics:

A Sky Full Of Stars

Cause you're a sky cause you're a sky full of stars
I'm gonna give you my heart
Cause you're a sky cause you're a sky full of stars
Cause you light up the path

And I don't care go on and tear me apart
And I don't care if you do
Cause in a sky cause in a sky full of stars
I think I saw you

Cause you're a sky cause you're a sky full of stars
I want to die in your arms
Cause you get lighter the more it gets dark
I'm gonna give you my heart

And I don't care go on and tear me apart
And I don't care if you do
Cause in a sky cause in a sky full of stars
I think I see you
I think I see you

Cause in a sky cause in a sky full of stars
I think I see you
I think I see you

Cause you're a sky you're a sky full of stars
Such a heavenly view
You're such a heavenly view
