mo keeps singing hers to me, but i don't get it.

this is mine...every time i hear it, i think of home and the little buggers i love.


Chasing Cars lyrics
Songwriters: Quinn, Jonathan; Lightbody, Gary; Connolly, Nathan; Wilson, Paul; Simpson, Tom;


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?

i could so not tell you one other single song they wrote...i have these favorite songs that i hear and i like immediately because somehow i feel they are relevant to me or my life personally..but i know nothing about music in general or about anything else musical...it is all along the same vein of my life living..i like what i like and i ignore the existence of anything else that i really know nothing about simply because it never occurs to me to learn about anything that doesn't effect/affect me.

i am the epitome of self-centered, insular human living!

plus my being like this is probably partly your fault anyway.....you always were more curious and interested in different shit than i was..i am pretty sure that is why i always ended up scared halfway to death in some dark, century old basement or attic with the possibility of maniacal, unhappy ghosts or mutant mega-man eating rats/bats because you wanted to know what was down (or up) there!

sorry i didn't get a chance to talk to you at the wedding..the weekend went so freaking fast!
