Chasing Cars



This ear-worm by Snow Patrol has been stuck in my head since I first heard it on radio. And it rings a bell because I've been busy at work chasing figures for management reporting, chasing people for their inputs...

Apart from the title though, the song speaks of a longing for independence and detachment, which during immense stress or hopelessness, are convenient holes to bury our heads in. But for too long have I allowed myself this. Stepping out in faith to reach for the next level is what I need.

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

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?
