~Sigh~

It was a still afternoon and I’ve sent off a nonsensical message to my friend asking him what song I’d be if he was to describe me.

He replied with three. The first two jabbed me about my past failings in relationships: Sappy by Nirvana and Self-esteem by Offspring (he knew me that well and he’s that grunge) and the last one is something he chose because he liked the song’s progression. It’s a theme song for Grey’s Anatomy 2nd season finale — Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol.

Something about this song leaves tendrils of melancholy and has sent me sighing half the day. And that’s the way i like it… The lyrics go this way, by the way:

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?
