• Would you lie with me and just forget the world

    Would you lie with me and just forget the world
    Song of March 23, 2017

     

    Song Title: Chasing Cars

    Perfomer: Sleeping at Last 

    I have often been a big fan of Sleeping at Last after watching the movie Twilight when one of his songs, Turning Page, was featured. 

    A pleasant YouTube search has fatefully led me to this rendition of Chasing Cars (originally written and performed by Snow Patrol) and I have since fallen in love with the melody and the lyrics. A little Google search told me this song was a big hit in the UK almost a decade ago. (Hm, where have I been?) Many of the leading artists including Ed Sheeran also sang cover version. It could have been love at first sight/hearing. The dreamy voice of Sleeping at Last will probably be my all time favourite.

    There is also an interesting background story about how Snow Patrol composed this song and naming it. Perhaps you can do your own little research and find out!

    In the meantime, enjoy the song and 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 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 that 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?
     
    Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
