Day 53: “Chasing Cars” – Snow Patrol

!!!ITALIANO!!!

Today’s song is dedicated to a friend of our blog, Valentina, who requested it expressly for her birthday. So Happy Birthday from onesongfortoday! It’s not nice to say the age, but we’ll give you some information about the song.

Taken from the album Eyes Open, the song suggested for today became famous to be part of the soundtrack of the famous American television series Grey’s Anatomy (for which a second version of the video was also created ). So famous to become all-time first song according to a Virgin Radio opinion poll. And this is not a surprise for us. A plain melody, catchy and involving, good to sing for anybody. Described by the singer Gary Lightbody as his “purest love song”, inspired from a story by his father about a girl who fell in love with, and which described the experience comparing to “a dog chasing a car”.

This is the subject of today’s song: love, but also life, impossibility to reach sometimes our goals, persistance in trying to catch them in any case, mankind’s loneliness, but at the same time keen desire to have someone close to us, to share everything, and sometimes stop and just forget the world.  Let’s listen to the sweet melody of Chasing Cars.

Chasing Cars – 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?
