Chasing Cars

I usually like what I like and seldom take a liking to what others like and impose.

Ok! Too confusing. The point is, I was asked to listen to this song suggested by a dear friend and I didn't quite like it.

I did not understand the poetry, did not feel the essence in the voice of the singer, nor did I like the music.

But I like the person who suggested this song, so I thought I'd give it a try.

And I have surprised myself this time, I have fallen in love with this song. I really have no idea what's so special about it, but my day starts with this and interestingly ends with this too..


I wish I knew, why?

Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol

We'll do it all
Everything
On our own

We don't need
Anything
Or anyone

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

I don't quite know
How to say
How I feel

Those three words
Are said too much
They're not enough

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we're told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that's bursting into life

Let's waste time
Chasing cars
Around our heads

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we're told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that's bursting into life

All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes, they're all I can see

I don't know where
Confused about how as well
Just know that these things will never change for us at all

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
