    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.
