    The song was written by Chris Martin and his band, for Chris's wife Gwyneth Paltrow, on the death of her father. (An organ style keyboard is used in the accompaniment, because Bruce Paltrow had bought one shortly before his death, but it had never been played)
    Carrie chose to cover this song in her first London concert - partly, no doubt, as a tribute to a very well known English band, but also, I think, because it's a very good fit thematically for her - it's theme of comfort in loss is also found in a couple she's written. Like many songs, it doesn't make an explicitly religious point, but is open to this interpretation by listeners who relate it to their own experience.

    I'm not the fan of the original at all, but I'm obsessed with Carrie's version. It almost has a gospel/spiritual feeling to, and I love the soft, clear tone of her voice. So soothing to listen to.

    I love the song, both the original and Carrie's version. I am a huge Coldplay fan, especially after seeing them live.
