Song a Day (2)…

My friend Dr. Meg at Meg Sorick, Writer, tagged me for ‘a song a day’ challenge.  Meg writes and draws and bakes.  And she’s a chiropractor — can you say overachiever??    But seriously, you need to check out her blog if you don’t follow already.  It’s wonderful.

The rules are to post the lyrics of a favorite song five days in a row, explain what they mean to you (if you like) and add the video if available.  Even my kids tell me I have the musical taste of a preteen girl, so sorry about that 😀  You are then supposed to nominate two other bloggers who can participate if they wish and my choices are:

EllenBest24

Sarah at Travels with Choppy

One of my all time favorite songs is Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol.   I love the romance of it and it brings me right back to the early years of Grey’s Anatomy when I still loved that show!  Here are the lyrics.

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 lay 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 lay 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 lay 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 lay with me and just forget the world?
Songwriters: NATHAN CONNOLLY, GARY LIGHTBODY, JONATHAN QUINN, TOM SIMPSON, PAUL WILSON

  5. First, thank you for the nomination! I am finally getting caught up on the blog, writing, etc. and have a new organization plan (it’s working well after two days! – I think it’s also helped by being refreshed post-vacation). I’ve been meaning to get to some of these nominations, so maybe this will be the kick in the butt I need to get going!

    Second, I don’t know this song at all! I’m kind of surprised. I tend to have my head in the ground when it comes to newish music, but usually I at least recognize things.

    1. It’s from about ten years ago, maybe, but it just brings back Izzy and Denny from Grey’s Anatomy to me. As an aside, I just saw today that Snow Patrol is coming out with a new album, the first in many years! I’m doing the AtoZ challenge in April so I’ve already written a few. I just need that push, I guess!

  6. I love this song… Snow Patrol is one of my favorite bands. I try hard NOT to associate this song with Grey’s. Honestly, it kind of ruins it for me! But damn! Gary has a beautiful voice. I could listed to it for hours (and I have)… 🙂

    BTW… Snow Patrol did a great song for the Divergent Soundtrack. At least I love it… you might like it… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=plUTOMoUsxA

  11. Oh man, Harry hates these guys. Whenever I listen to them, he calls them the Whiny Scottish Boys. I tell him they’re getting laid a lot more than he ever hopes to… 😜 Dummy. Anyway, I never watched Grey’s Anatomy, can you believe it? Great song! And not even 12 year old girlish!

    1. This was when I first saw Jeffrey Dean Morgan. He was a patient in love with Katherine Heigl. Denny and Izzie, OMG, I sobbed over their doomed love! I kind of stopped watching a few years after that, but that song just brings me back! Yeah, sounds like Harry is just jealous, lol! I’m trying to think of other songs I like, but one might have to be Meghan Trainor 🙂
