    Default Chasing cars

    I invite you to interpret and enjoy this love song. Gary Lightbody, the front man of Snow Patrol said: " is the most pure and open love song I ever written"

    What is your opinion? what is the meaning of the phrase "Chasing cars"?


    "Chasing Cars"


    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?

    Jonatane,
    Tan romántico que empalaga (y soy diabética)..............la canción refiere al efecto de "tontera" que genera en algunas personas el estar enamorado, y entiendo que tiene que ver con dejarse llevar, olvidarse del mundo, hacer cosas sin sentido (como perseguir autos) por el sólo hecho de que estas enamorado y nada más importa en el mundo...... Estaría bueno ver cuales fueron las canciones que este compositor escribió despues de esta, para saber si realmente el efecto siguió o simplemente la "mató" en el próximo tema. No en vano dicen que del amor al odio hay un solo paso....jajaja

    PIM,

    Buenisimo la forma en que interpretaste este tema, en mi opinion creo que "perseguir autos" es una metafora relacionada con perder el tiempo en algo que esta fuera de tu alcance, algo casi imposible de realizar. En el contexto de esta cancion trata de lo casi imposible o dificil que es estar junto a la persona que deseas. Es mi interpretacion no mas.
    De estas caracteristicas solo escribio este tema pero te invito a escucharlos.

    The way I interpret the idea of "Chasing Cars" is a time where you let go of what people say, what they think and who you are suppose to be in that moment, when they are "Chasing Cars", they are finally living. They are having fun and just enjoying. For that moment they don't have to worry about what they have to do or what they should be doing, they aren't worried about what's to come, they are living for right now, for that moment. To me the term, "Chasing Cars" means freedom in life, it doesn't matter if it's only for that second, or for a few hours. It's the courage to live, really live.
