Lyrics that inspired the naming of Moses Martin

04/11/2006 at 05:00 PM ET

Moses by Coldplay was written in 2003 for new daddy Chris Martin’s then-girlfriend, now-wife Gwyneth Paltrow. The song apparently inspired the naming of their new child, a son, Moses Martin.

The live version of the song starts with "This is called Moses. This is a new song about falling in love with the most beautiful woman in the world."

To read the lyrics in their entirety, click the extended post.

Moses

come on now, don’t you want to see
this thing that’s happening to me
like moses has power over sea
so you’ve got power over me

come on now don’t you want to know
you’re a refuge, somewhere i can go
you’re air that, air that i can breathe
you’re my golden opportunity

and oh, oh yes i would
if i only could
and you know i would
and baby i, oh baby i
i wish

come on now, don’t you want to see
just what a difference you’ve made in me
i’ll be waiting oh no matter what you say
cause i’ve been waiting for days and days and days

and oh, oh yes i would
if i only could
and you know i would
and baby i, oh baby i
i wish
i wish

oh, oh, oh
oh, oh, oh
if the sky’s gonna fall down let it fall on me
if you’re gonna break down you can break on me
if the sky’s gonna fall down let it fall on me
if it’s gonna rain down it can rain on me
it can rain on me

Any word on his middle name(s) yet?

I was wondering the same thing? Maybe Bruce after her dad? I don’t particularly like the name Moses, but if it’s true, it’s sweet that they named him after that song. Maybe the name will grow on me, Apple has…lol 8)

I had heard Moses Bruce Anthony Martin (Bruce for her dad, Anthony for his) which would be sweet, but that’s just a rumor, not confirmed.
