song of the day | what sandra thinks


This week’s theme for ‘Song Lyric Sunday‘ is… fire.

The song I chose has always been one of my favorite Snow Patrol songs.

The screams trapped inside… missing everything he wanted —

I felt every ounce of me screaming out
But the sound was trapped deep in me
All I wanted just sped right past me
While I was rooted fast to the earth

And that person Gary sings about…? I need one of those in my life.

There you are, standing right in front of me
All this fear falls away to leave me naked
Hold me close, ’cause I need you to guide me to safety

I just think it’s a beautiful song. Hope you like it.

Signal Fire / Snow Patrol

The perfect words never crossed my mind
‘Cause there was nothing in there but you
I felt every ounce of me screaming out
But the sound was trapped deep in me
All I wanted just sped right past me
While I was rooted fast to the earth
I could be stuck here for a thousand years
Without your arms to drag me out

There you are, standing right in front of me
There you are, standing right in front of me
All this fear falls away to leave me naked
Hold me close, ’cause I need you to guide me to safety

No, I won’t wait forever
No, I won’t wait forever

In the confusion and the aftermath
You are my signal fire
The only resolution and the only joy
Is the faint spark of forgiveness in your eyes

There you are, standing right in front of me
There you are, standing right in front of me
All this fear falls away to leave me naked
Hold me close, ’cause I need you to guide me to safety
There you are, standing right in front of me
There you are, standing right in front of me
All this fear falls away to leave me naked
Hold me close, ’cause I need you to guide me to safety

No, I won’t wait forever
No, I won’t wait forever
