Would You Lie With Me And Just Forget The World?

I love love love this song. It's gotten me through so much. Sometimes I just sit and listen to it on replay, over and over and over again. I have the lyrics memorized, and I sing along and harmonize with them. I really really love this song. It's beautiful. I imagine laying next to someone and staring at the sky, feeling the wind and the connection to everything that exists. It makes me happy and sad all at the same time. I cry to this song, and I smile with this song. I love Chasing Cars 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?

Forget what we're told,
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that's bursting into life.

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 strains
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?


Thank you, Snow Patrol, for this gift :)

omg i love it tooooooo

OMG , i love this song too :) . The lyrics always hit me in the heart.

This was a really good song, but none of my friends seem to like it. I was starting to think I was the only one..

Absolutely not xD favorite song ever.

Oh, and my other favorite part is "Don't quite know how to say how I feel, those three words are said too much they're not enough."

Omg , That song is amazing. Since as far back as I can remember I used to listen to it, and it always got my skin tingling when it came to the part where it's like "Would you Lie with me and Forget the World?" <3 touching song. :)

it's an amazing song.. i love it too..

One of my favourites, thanks.

"How I feel..." love it!!!

This is one of my favorite songs. And you're right: this song is a gift.

I heard this song for the first time about a year or so ago. Loved it.

This is like on of my favourite songs! You have quite the taste in music lol :P

This is a beautiful story. I love this song too. I know exactly the way you feel. Its heartwarming and sad at the same time.

I love this song!<br />
But to be honest, I haven't listened to it for quite a long time.<br />
Thank you for reminding me of these great lyrics &amp; great song!

It's from Snow Patrol's album "Eyes Wide Shut"...and called "You could be happy". It's quite a heartbreaking song...but if you love "chasing cars"...you will fall head over heels with the songs on this album. I think sometimes you can connect so much with a song you can feel it was just made for you...Snow Patrol seem to be able to connect ..always.

Oops... Sorry wrong Snow Patrol album...the song is from "Eyes Open"...you can see the clear error..put it down to being way past my bedtime...and maybe the glass of red wine I felt I deserved after another hectic day. Thanks though for reminding me about Snow Patrol's songs..haven't listened to them in ages...but will go to sleep with the lyrics drifting through my mind.

it just makes you stop in your tracks... and lose yourself...just for a little while.<br />
<br />
One of the most beautiful words sung from snow patrol are from "You could be happy":-<br />
<br />
"...more than anything I want to see you girl...take a glorious bite out of the whole world.."<br />
<br />

Snow Patrol, Chasing Cars.
