Life Through Lyrics: Snow Patrol’s Chasing Cars

Standard

Chasing_CarsFor my latest installment in Life Through Lyrics, I bring to you ‘Chasing Cars’ by Snow Patrol. This is a slightly older (a decade or so) song that I fell in love with as I sobbed watching Denny die on Grey’s Anatomy after everything Izzy tried to do to save him. To this day I still cannot wait that episode with bawling.

I revisited this song often during my days of infertility and after my miscarriages when I felt most alone in the world, I blasted it louder than my ears could handle and screamed along to it in my car on the highway. After years of listening to it and using it for every good, bad and ugly moment of my life, it is truly the one song I come back to over and over again as mine. It’s relatable to me in ways I don’t expect others to understand and that’s okay with me. Anyway…

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

I need your grace
To remind me
To find my own

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?
