All about Snow Patrol 

Who are Snow Patrol: Gary Lightbody (vocals, guitar), Nathan Connolly (guitar, backing vocals), Paul Wilson (bass guitar, backing vocals), Jonny Quinn (drums), and Johnny McDaid (piano, guitar, backing vocals) formed the Northern Irish–Scottish rock band Snow Patrol in 1994. Their first two studio albums, Songs for Polarbears (1998) and When It’s All Over We Still Have to Clear Up (2001), didn’t make it good. Their major-label debut album, Final Straw, the following year, with “Run”, was the album’s biggest hit where the band rose to prominence. Their next studio album, Eyes Open (2006), and its hit single, “Chasing Cars”—reported in 2019 to be the most-played song of the 21st century on UK radio.

Chasing Cars

Length: 4:27

Release: 2006

Opening Lyrics:

We’ll do it all
On our own
We don’t need
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?


Length: 5:54

Release: 2003

Opening 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

Open Your Eyes

Length: 5:41

Release: 2006

Opening Lyrics:

All this feels strange and untrue
And I won’t waste a minute without you
My bones ache, my skin feels cold
And I’m getting so tired and so old
The anger swells in my guts
And I won’t feel these slices and cuts
I want so much to open your eyes
‘Cause I need you to look into mine
Tell me that you’ll open your eyes
Tell me that you’ll open your eyes
Tell me that you’ll open your eyes
Tell me that you’ll open your eyes
Get up, get out, get away from these liars
‘Cause they don’t get your soul or your fire
Take my hand, knot your fingers through mine
And we’ll walk from this dark room for the last time

Just Say Yes

Length: 4:41

Release: 2009

Opening Lyrics:

I’m running out of ways to make you see
I want you to stay here beside me
I won’t be ok and I won’t pretend I am
So just tell me today and take my hand
Please take my hand
Please take my hand
Please take my hand
Please take my hand
Just say yes, just say there’s nothing holding you back
It’s not a test, nor a trick of the mind
Only love
It’s so simple and you know it is
You know it is
We can’t be to and fro like this
All our lives
You’re the only way to me

You Could Be Happy

Length: 3:02

Release: 2006

Opening Lyrics:

You could be happy and I won’t know
But you weren’t happy the day I watched you go
And all the things that I wished I had not said
Are played in loops till it’s madness in my head
Is it too late to remind you how we were?
But not our last days of silence, screaming, blur
Most of what I remember makes me sure
I should have stopped you from walking out the door
You could be happy, I hope you are
You made me happier than I’d been by far
Somehow everything I own smells of you
And for the tiniest moment it’s all not true
