Run by Snow Patrol

 

‘Run’ has to be one of the best songs in Snow Patrol’s repertoire. I feel in love with it immediately. I’ve heard so many interpretations of the lyrics ranging from family ties to break ups. Do you like the song? What do you think Gary Lightbody was trying to say? What’s your favorite Snow Patrol tune?

 

Lyrics

 

I’ll sing it one last time for you
Then we really have to go
You’ve been the only thing that’s right
In all I’ve done

 

And I can barely look at you
But every single time I do
I know we’ll make it anywhere
Away from here

 

Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I’ll be right beside you dear

 

Louder , louder
And we’ll run for our lives
I can hardly speak I understand
Why you can’t raise your voice to say

 

To think I might not see those eyes
Makes it so hard not to cry
And as we say our long goodbye
I nearly do

 

Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I’ll be right beside you dear

 

Louder louder
And we’ll run for our lives
I can hardly speak I understand
Why you can’t raise your voice to say

 

Slower slower
We don’t have time for that
All I want’s to find an easy way
To get out of our little heads

 

Have heart, my dear
We’re bound to be afraid
Even if it’s just for a few days
Making up for all this mess

 

Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I’ll be right beside you dear
