[Intro: Chris Martin, All]
You (You), you are (You are) my universe
And I (I), just want (Just want) to put you first
And you (You), you are (You are) my universe, and I

[Verse 1: Chris Martin]
In the night I lie and look up at you
When the morning comes I watch you rise
There’s a paradise they couldn’t capture
That bright infinity inside your eyes

[Pre-Chorus: Jung Kook, All, Jung Kook & Chris Martin]
Maeil bam nege naraga (Ga)
Kkumiran geotdo ijeun chae
Na useumyeo neoreul manna (Na)
Never ending forever, baby

[Chorus: Chris Martin, All]
You (You), you are (You are) my universe
And I (I), just want (Just want) to put you first
And you (You), you are (You are) my universe
And you make my world light up inside

[Verse 2: V, RM, RM & Chris Martin, RM & Jimin]
Eodumi naegen deo pyeonhaesseotji
Gireojin geurimja sogeseo (Eyes)
And they said that we can’t be together
Because, because we come from different sides

[Chorus: Chris Martin, All]
You (You), you are (You are) my universe
And I (I), just want (Just want) to put you first
And you (You), you are (You are) my universe
And you make my world light up inside

[Post-Chorus: All, Jin]
My universe (Do-do, do-do)
My universe (Do-do, do-do)
My universe (Do-do, do-do)
(You make my world)
You make my world light up inside
Make my world light up inside

[Bridge: j-hope, SUGA]
Nareul balkyeojuneun geon
Neoran sarangeuro su noajin byeol
Nae ujuui neon
Tto dareun sesangeul mandeureo juneun geol
Neoneun nae byeorija naui ujunikka
Jigeum i siryeondo gyeolgugen jamsinikka
Neoneun eonjekkajina jigeumcheoreom balgeman binnajwo
Urineun neoreul ttara i gin bameul sunoeul geoya

[Pre-Chorus: Jung Kook, Jung Kook & Jimin, Chris Martin & Jung Kook]
Neowa hamkke naraga
When I’m without you I’m crazy
Ja eoseo nae soneul jaba
We are made of each other, baby

[Chorus: Chris Martin, All]
You (You), you are (You are) my universe
And I (I), just want (Just want) to put you first (To put you first)
And you (You), you are (You are) my universe
And you make my world light up inside

[Post-Chorus: All]
My universe (Do-do, do-do)
You, you are (You are)
My universe (Do-do, do-do)
I, just want (Just want)
My universe
You, you are (You are) my universe, and I
My universe

[Outro: All]
(Ayy, ayy, ayy, ayy, ayy)Click here.We really don’t believe in any boundaries or separation of anything really, and so the song “My Universe” is about someone being told they can’t love a certain other person, or can’t be with this race, or they can’t be gay, whatever it might be. And we thought it would be good to sing this with BTS because maybe we’re not supposed to be together. And it turned out to be one of the most fun things ever. I went to Korea to be with them, it’s been amazing.—Chris Martin via The Kelly Clarkson ShowIt had been in my mind for a while that someone had said BTS were wondering if we’d do a song for them or something like that. And then we started communicating with BTS and then went to Korea. It’s something you could look at so cynically, and we have at times, but anytime there’s actual communication or music between us, it just feels so good. So I unabashedly and unashamedly feel really grateful for the song, grateful for the person that inspired the song, and grateful for the people we sing it with.—Chris Martin via New Music Daily

For the first time, the song was teased officially on September 13, 2021, with Coldplay’s Alien Radio FM message that translated into “Coldplay x BTS My Universe.” Few hours later, it was followed by the release announcement from both groups.Other Teasers:AHHHHH THAT’S SO BEAUTIFUL“My Universe,” an uplifting pop-rock song about a difficult love, works as the second promotional single from Coldplay’s Music of the Spheres.The track, written by Coldplay alongside BTS rappers, originally was made only for BTS, but the artists ended up performing it together. The chorus vocals sung together were recorded in April 2021 when Coldplay’s Chris Martin visited South Korea. The song marks the first collaboration between the two artists.The rumors about the possible collaboration between Coldplay and BTS goes back to February 2021, when BTS surprised everyone covering Coldplay’s “Fix You” during their MTV Unplugged session. The performance gained worldwide recognition, and Coldplay took to Twitter to express their admiration for it. After this performance, fans of both bands expressed hope for cooperation, but the rumors truly sparked when Chris Martin was spotted at Incheon Airport in South Korea. The rumors continued when during the interview for the promotion of “Higher Power,” he addressed the rumors, saying: “I love them a lot and so if the right song came along, I wouldn’t ever say no.”In July 2021, part of the song was leaked online, thus confirming the collaboration. BTS’ label, BigHit Music, released a press statement about Coldplay’s upcoming new song that supposedly features BTS saying: “It’s hard to confirm,” convincing no one that the collaboration is not gonna happen. Through the following months both artists were still hinting at the collaboration, and Chris Martin even sang a fragment of “My Universe” (including the Korean verse) on The Kelly Clarkson Show (as was reported by an audience member) and hosted a conversation with BTS for their “Permission to Dance” Challenge on YouTube Shorts.The song was announced officially on September 13, 2021, with the release press info from both groups.
