The conscious uncouple: Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin

Coldplay frontman Chris Martin may have hinted of his marriage breakdown in the band's latest song, Magic.

It was originally released online two weeks ago, but shrewd music fans have put together the puzzle pieces of the not-so-cryptic puzzle pieces of the lyrics.

Martin is famous for incorporating his real life into his music, famously writing number one hit Fix You for wife Gwyneth Paltrow when her father Bruce died in 2002.

"I don’t want anybody else but you; 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," hinted the singer in the song lyrics.

Gwyneth was forced to deny two affairs in recent months, with lawyer Kevin Yorn and Elle Macpherson’s billionaire husband Jeffrey Soffer.

While Chris has signed up as a new mentor on The Voice US, he will not be doing any promotional interviews in connection with his new role and has kept promotion on the band's new album Ghost Stories, to a minimum.

Chorus lyrics to Magic:

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

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

It’s 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

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
