Lyrics

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
I 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

    Why are there 5 songwriters listed? Only one guy did the full lyrics and music, and I know who! That's what I learned.

    Here's what I thought, listening to this song (the Topher Jones and Blake Jarrell remix) before finding out those lyrics in December 2006.
    ...Wish it came in December 2004 and not 2006!
    ...Wish it wasn't Snow Patrol singing this track, but a French boy who did all the lyrics and music himself (sung in English).
    ...Wish it was named "For What I Am" (that's what I hear in the final chorus) and not "Chasing Cars".

    So... Sorry, Mr. Lightbody. Until December 22, 2006, I didn't know you were the real singer of this track.

    One last thing: the Topher Jones and Blake Jarrell remix is far better than the album version, IMO.
