Chasing Cars Lyrics - Snow Patrol

Review The Song (76)

We'll do it all
On our own

We don't need
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
sponsored links
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?

/I have fallen in love with both SnowPatrol and the song Chasing Cars. This song is probably one of my all time favorites! Every time someone asks me for a song this is always the first one!

love this song | Reviewer: john rey | 3/23/14

I have been an avid music lover. But this song is really one of the best. I ddicate this song to my online datingmate. We chatted everyday, like almost giving update every hour, we change digits, I really like him so much. We are working in a different company but both in BPO, I fell in love with him and it just that all of a sudden when we met he dont bother texting me anymore and it really change everything. I feel so unwanted. and from that day onwards I told myself not to go on blind dating or EYEBALL. its really giving me a bad impression.

is it worth it...?1 | Reviewer: Icy23 | 3/17/14

Im still confused, when I heard this song for the first time someone have me listened this. It makes no sense to me and to our story, I cant really understand why he dedicate the song to me. But as time goes by and he became special to me.. He said he is separated but I found out that he is not.. he made me fall in love with him. Now, it makes sense to me now why he dedicated this song to me.

" If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

I really to want to tell him that I can do it and the hell I care with my principles in life. Though I know that in the end it will still be me who will be left alone.. I dont want to risk my whole life for a short happiness that he can give. How I wish I can say that there will be another guy out there who can love me more that he did when everything is right. I want to be with him but how will I do that without me hurting his family. I wish its more easier to just lay in his arms and forget the world. I will be missing you. How I wish you are free to love me.

Sweetest Song Ever | Reviewer: A Forever Friendship | 10/24/13

Friendships are few and far between and this song seems to be about a man who has been very hurt at one time or another and has that one special someone that he doesn't have to say those words, she already knows all she has to do is be there for him to feel safe about his feelings once again.

Love the lyrics | Reviewer: Rainy | 12/4/12

I feel the song meant to push the world away and just be. My husband died last year of cancer and during his sickness he asked me to just lie next to him. He was so thin and tired and just want me to lie next to him and hold him. when I hear this song it reminds me of him.

For Amy | Reviewer: Daniel | 3/6/12

A year ago I met a wonderful woman called Amy. We are both in relationships and events recently led us to share what we thought about each other. Since then our moments have been amazing and so so tender. We seem to have found someone who can touch the deepest part of our soul and we love each other... Our dream is to lie in the countryside and just watch the clouds go by, knowing the other is there next to us... We don't need anything or anyone to know how we feel. In the words of the song we dont know how or why things are the way they are but we know that for us they will never change. Thank you Amy for giving me a glimpse of your soul and letting me hold you... I truly love you...

amazing | Reviewer: ellie | 7/3/11

the first time i listened to this, my eyes welled up and i nearly started crying for no apparent reason. then i realized that although the song has no sense in its lyrics but it has a hidden meaning.

I need your grace | Reviewer: shideh panahi | 1/8/11

"those three words"THEY ARE NOT ENOUGh,are basic rules of living together with our love without any problem.
when i hear this song first time,it is takes my breath away and i feel strong power of grace,kindness,honesty and happiness in my own....
finally.either any body is not enough but:
All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes, they're all I can see.
I love you,ali...
I never want to lose you again

Never too old to understand | Reviewer: Rosemary LeBlanc | 7/25/10

I am an old woman 56 soon, married 20 years,first and only time, so you do the math and see it was not an easy trip. I have a cynical point of presentation which pooh poohed the over use of "those three words" THEY ARE NOT ENOUGH. What is in front of them, is conjecture, what came before, unchangable for good or bad. I had gotten all wrapped up in the day to day struggle, the routines, the bills, the living life on life's terms which at times is messy, challenging, boring, or seemingly just too hard to do. I have crafted words for a lifetime, but have never been able to define where I stand, and why I am standing. This group of young men, and this glorious song, have me sobbing on my lap top. The gratitude of being loved, the constant hope of the next minute, and finally understanding that life and love are not to be mastered, but to be savored, never taken for granted. I love you David, thank you."If I lay here, If I just lay here, would you lie with me and just forget the world." I grew up with Bob Dylan and Jackson Browne, both cerebral music makers... I love the music from the last 20 years; the musicians have taken it out of the head, and sing it from the heart and gut.

Breathtaking | Reviewer: Ibukun | 6/20/10

This song is amazing. Couldn't stop listening to it. 'Would you lie with me & just forget the world?' this question makes me wanna cry. I just wish "the love" we just profess so easily does mean what it really is to us cos then, they'll be enough. "Seun, if i lay here, if i just lay here, would u lie with me & just forget the world?"

Every now and then.......... | Reviewer: Emma | 3/26/10

Every now and then a song comes along that takes your breath away, and leaves you lost for words. I'll admit that i liked snow patrol before "chasing cars" came out, but this was the song that made me wake up and actually really listen to their songs. "chasing cars" is an amazing song, and i have a lot of special memories attached to it, So much so, that i'm getting a tattoo tomorrow of the lines "forget what were told, before we get too old,show me a agarden thats bursting into life"
This song gives me goosebumps every time i hear it, and it takes a special song to do that now a days!

What do the words mean? | Reviewer: Jay | 3/19/10

GREAT SONG... Anyway, a few questions...are we sure it's "chasing cars around our heads" and are we sure it is "show me a garden that's bursting into life?" It changes meanings. This song SEEMS to really be about a man and a woman, but if it is chasing cars around our house, that reminds me of dogs. SOmetimes songs are not about what or who you think. The 1970's hit song "Shannon" was about a dog. Also, I'd like it if it were about a man and woman and it said "show me your garden that's bursting into life" because it would mean a baby, wouldn't it? Remember when Robert Plant sang "can I make your garden grow" in a song? I hope you people are old enough to remember these songs I talking about or would google them. Any word changes?

OK I get it | Reviewer: Jay | 3/19/10

P.S. Sorry about the questions, I just read all the posts that explain the chasing cars thing and love song. Guess it is a way to chide his dad and that memory and say he was a dog who could catch the "car" and did know what to do with her! But I still wonder about the's a great image for pregnancy. The Led Zep song, now that I think about it, which said "can I make your garden grow," was "Houses of the Holy." BUT "Chasing cars" is haunting and beautiful because of the steady and heightening sound of the music, it actually has like a climb and climax. Very clerver, and very beautiful, like the lyrics.

Annoyed | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/14/10

If you're going to write a review, then actually write a goddamn review, no-one cares that you think about your BF everytime you hear this song and frankly it annoys me

On a lighter note, amazing song 5*
