SNOW PATROL

Snow Patrol is a bristish alternative rock band originally formed in late 1994 by University of Dundee students Gary Lightbody, Michael Morrison and Mark McClelland as the Shrug. The band started by performing gigs at the university and surrounding pubs. In 1995, they changed their name to Polar Bear to avoid issues with any American bands that were also named Shrug. Shortly afterwards, drummer Mike Morrison left the band after suffering a breakdown and returned to Northern Ireland. The band again renamed, this time to Snow Patrol, because of a naming conflict with another band of the same name fronted by Jane’s Addiction’s ex-bassist Eric Avery. At this point, Jonny Quinn, from Northern Ireland, joined as permanent drummer.

“Chasing Cars” is a song from the 2006 album “Eyes Open”, and pushed the band in the way onto the download and pop charts after it was heard during an emotional scene of the second season finale of the television show “Grey’s Anatomy” on 15 May 2006.

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?
