Coldplay- "Magic"

Coldplay's lyrics usually have a very special touch and their last hit, "Magic", is so enchanting! Unfortunately, teenagers are not always so fond of Coldplay and from my personal experience I've learnt that their songs are more advisable for young adults or adults in general, but who knows, maybe your students make an exception! Anyway let me know...

Level: beginner

Grammar focus on: prepositions

Activity: circle the right option

Lyrics taken from:


(No official video available yet,  I'm posting the official audio instead)

Let's talk about:special people in your life. 1) Have you ever met someone with a magic touch? 2)What is magic in a love affair? 3) What is magic in a friendship?

Memorable phrases: 

  • to get over (something) used to say that one feels finally happy or relieved after something bad (i.e. an accident, a troublesome relation, etc.) has happened or ended. 
  • (if you can) call it (magic)....used to emphasize that something is not what it looks like.
