British band Coldplay is penning a new song to be dedicated to the city of Houston in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.

COLDPLAY PERFORMS ORIGINAL SONG DEDICATED TO HOUSTON

The band had to postpone their tour stop in Houston last week due to the approaching tropical storm. At their concert Monday night in Miami, singer Chris Martin told the crowd about the postponement and played their new song, titled “Houston.”

“This is because we all grew up loving country music, and of course that’s kind of what we think of when we go to Texas,” Martin said. “So, if you’ll bear with us, this is a new song and we’ll never play this again. It’s a once off and it’s called ‘Houston.’ We’re gonna sing it in Miami for everybody here, and we’re gonna send it over there to everyone who missed the show.”

The crowd cheered loudly at the sentiment, and Coldplay performed the song. There is no word of a make-up date for the postponed Houston concert, but Martin is hopeful he will get to perform “Houston” one more time in its namesake city. Coldplay is currently touring through North America before making their way down to South America in November.

Below are the lyrics to the song.

I’m dreamin’ of when I get back to Houston,
I’m dreamin’ of that very special place,
I’m dreamin’ of when Houston has no problems,
In that city where they send you into space,
I’m dreamin’ of when I get back to Texas,
Corpus Christi, Harris County, Galveston,
There’s a harmony that bonds down there in Houston,
Oh, Houston, you got to keep on keepin’ on,
From Miami, we are sending love to Houston,
We’re praying that you make it through the rain,
I know nothing’s gonna break the will of Houston,
Oh, how we can’t wait to go down there again,
I am dreamin’ of when I get back to Texas,
Corpus Christi, Harris County, Galveston,
There’s a harmony that bonds down there in Houston,
Oh, Houston you got to keep on keepin’ on,
Oh, Houston you got to keep on keepin’ on,
Yea, Houston got to keep on keepin’ on.
