Coldplay: Green Eyes Meaning

Green Eyes Lyrics

Honey you are a rock
Upon which I stand
And I come here to talk
I hope you understand

That green eyes
Yeah the spotlight shines upon you
And how could anybody deny you
I came here with a load
And it feels so much lighter
Now I met...

    It sounds to me like it's about how a man feels about his prostitute. He sees her to talk sometimes and his load is lightened. She is A rock and not THE rock upon which he stands. She is his support when he needs her and when he visits her. She's the one he wanted to find and can't understand how anyone could ever deny her. Just another perspective...:-)

    He doesn't sing it anymore because Gwenyth won't let him!

    Chris Martin has said this song is about Gwyneth Paltrow.

    When he is talking about her being a rock, he is saying that she is the foundation that he stands on, his support. And he can go and talk to her about anything he needs to. It is most likely a song to either his mother, or his wife Gwenyth Paltrow. =]
