Coldplay dedicates song to Houston during performance at Hard Rock Stadium

Though the threat of Hurricane Harvey forced Coldplay to postpone their Friday concert in Houston, the Bayou City was still in the band’s heart.

During their live performance Monday night at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, the band performed a song they wrote in the wake of Harvey called "Houston" and called the city No. 1.

Lead singer Chris Martin said during a heartfelt dedication to the city under water that the song would never be played again.

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

The lyrics of the song talk about a carefree Houston and a city that is strong.

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 you make it through the rain.
I know nothing is 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.

It is unclear when Coldplay will return to Houston.
