But there are reasons song reminds me of my uncle alot.
Not suicide, if he loves her so much he's not going to kill himself.
These great artists bare their souls for us, letting us glimpse their darkest secrets. Gary's account on this page is interesting as much for what it leaves out as what it actually says. about how he i cannot hear him talking to me or see him but i know he is around me all the time..Benjamin, i know lots of people who think this song was about someone is a coma.
He doesn't say why he went on a massive bender, why he was so badly depressed, or exactly how he came to be at the bottom of a flight of stairs. And did you not read what Gary Lightbody said first of all when asked about this song, he doesn't want to ruin it for anyone as everyone can interpret it differently.
There is clearly a story here, but it is Gary's story, and it should probably stay that way. The singer will lose his kid for some reason (separation, coma, ....)Especially this line from the lyrics makes it pretty clear:"You've been the only thing that's right In all I've done"Being a father myself (luckily living together with my loved ones), to me this makes a perfect sense I had to let go of someone I love. For me this song is about hope, love, and what I went through when I had to say goodbye. But I have been two snow patrol live gigs, and Gary Lighbody himself, said it was a song about family.
he died not long ago with cancer and everytime i hear this song it reminds me of him.
Given its iconic status, The Joshua Tree National Park in south-eastern California seemed as good a place as any to start work on their sixth studio album.
In October 2010, the band drove out into the desert with their guitars and one or two rough song ideas.A week later, their writing session at Rancho De La Luna Studios had laid the foundations of the tracks that would comprise Fallen Empires.Snow Patrol's new album, Fallen Empires, arrives with a serious reputation attached.The Irish/Scottish five piece have sold over 11 million albums and have been responsible for several era-defining singles, including Run, Chocolate, and Chasing Cars (which spent an incredible 104 weeks in the UK Top 75 and was voted song of the decade in a Channel 4 poll).Their albums have been nominated for the Mercury Music Prize, Grammys and MTV Europe Music Awards, with Final Straw landing them an Ivor Novello Award in 2005.By anyone’s standards, it's been a pretty good century so far.
